DD: How would you describe the sound your developing?

LP: SouLcake with butter icing,  heartboom 4 your ears….I aim to be the lil’ light and shade ova the beautiful jams I get to collaborate on…….. shout outs to my talented bros Jellphonic,  Indigo Pyramid crew,  Onur Engin, Lord Jackson, Benny Tones and Sir Froderick, who make me sound flash ….

DD: What was your introduction to electronic music?

LP: Listening to Stevie Wonder and funk and disco tunes when I was little….Later on my time too, with house music, listening to other albums like Mr Scruff’s “Keep it Unreal”, Lionrock’s “An Instinct for Detection”, Herbert’s “Bodily Functions”, Jazzanova’s “Inbetween” album, Rockers Hi-fI and St Germain’s “The Tourist”, all out of control pieces of work so beautifully crafted and dope they all blew my mind…..

As I moved more into beats and samples , an album that had a profound effect on me  was Spacek’s Curvatia…listening to that inspired me to start recording my own vocals & buy an mpc…..
