He released some of the very first dubstep records on his DMZ label and Hatcha's Big Apple Records and was a key player on Mary Anne Hobbs seminal Dubstep Warz radio show in 2006, alongside a young Skream & Benga!

He remains as vital as ever to bass music, releasing one of 2012's best albums 'Mala in Cuba' on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings, a dubstep-meets-live-cuban-rhythms soundclash.
