With an enduring involvement in music from his early school days and a grounding in the piano, drums and guitar, one could say the writing was on the wall for Dub Zero as a successful artist after his nomination for ‘Best Young Musician in Kent’ aged 12. Initially more of a DJ but ever aware of the pressure to produce in order to make progress in Drum & Bass, early experiments in studio software like Fruityloops began as a hobby but soon progressed to something more serious and in 2007, his first release ‘Power Gurn’ surged straight to number #1 in the Nu Urban distribution charts. Further productions included ‘Ganja Plant’ on Concept Records, ‘Shadow of Death’ on XS Records and ‘Nightmare’ on the mighty Formation; in time, he found himself on the end of a call from Kenny Ken who commissioned him to remix his classic track ‘Murder You’.
Following further releases on Formation and Biological Beats, Dub Zero caught the attention of DJ Phantasy who has since gone some way to push him further in the scene. High profile linkups with Harry Shotta and Skibadee emerged in the time since, his diverse studio skills commissioned for production work on their Hip-Hop and Dubstep tracks which have in turn been supported by the likes of Caspa, Trolley Snatcha, Funtcase and Crissy Criss. Diversity always the key, his sights are presently set on completing a selection of Liquid Funk tracks alongside a collaboration with MC Spyda and if that wasn’t enough, a live project and LP are pencilled in for the future.
2012 saw the launch of Dub Zero's dubstep alias "Dirty Dog" signed to Caspa's now legendary "Dub Police" Record label. Being busier than ever producing both Drum & Bass and Dubstep under both aliases, a busy diary that sees him travelling the world, performing at various events representing the musical styles he holds so dear.
Support from his tracks comes from the scenes top DJ’s such as - Caspa, Flux Pavillion, Rusko, DJ Hype, Bassline Smith, Doctor P, Funtcase, 12th Planet, DJ SS + many, many more. With tracks featuring regularly on such prestigious radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Kiss 100, not to mention any DJ who’s worth their salt packing his tunes ready to play on a number of pirate stations in London, UK and further afield.
