Interview: Bite The Belt

Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 21.42.31

Interview time: peeps of Bite The Belt blog were kind to ask me this and that, and as the result, the interview became what’s probably the longest interview I’ve ever done.
It is a lot to read, but I think some good recent thoughts were covered, and some stuff was revealed that you probably didn’t know and which might interest you – or not.
Anyways, grab a cup of coffee (or many) to make it thru the whole shebang if you’re up for doing some long-ass reading.

Damian Bennett: When I first heard you it was the early 2000s, from Bailey’s show. The sound was completely unique, not just re the choice of samples or priorities of sounds, but just that your whole approach was very fresh… so tell me what did you wanted to bring to D&B back then?

F: The old D&B aesthetic is what I wanted to bring… strong rhythms, varying drum patterns and breakbeats instead of the same 2-step beat I kept hearing a bit too much. A friend called Rob Brierly gave DJ Bailey a CD at an event and Bailey started playing loads of my stuff on his shows. He even called me and we had a chat on his show and I was nervous as heck, ha ha. I’m still indebted to Rob and Bailey for that one. Damn, that was eight years ago….time flies by so fast.
