He first discovered DnB at the age of 13 and grew up listening to the likes of Hysteria, One Nation & Dreamscape .... At 15, he was regularly getting sets at Free-parties across the country performing as part of 'After Dark Kru'.Rippa quickly became a resident MC at several well-known DnB events in his home town of Oxford. Following on from this, he earned a regular slot on one of the leading UK's DnB Pirate stations, UK's Finest 87.5FM, which allowed him to branch out and get recognized in the surrounding counties.

2012 has already been a good year for Rippa so far, he has started to take bookings abroad touching down in Stockholm where he has gained him self residency for the biggest Drum&Bass Promoters in Sweden at Vision Fruit and Traffic Drum&Bass. This has only inspired Rippa even more to push his name in the U.K as a artist where he had recently entered for the Random Concept Global Energy Mc competition for 2012. Ripz was selcted out from over 500+ other mcs entries to make the final 5 Mc's where he was then invited down to Newquay for the Random Concept Global Energy WeekEnder Finals, In the Competition Rippa was then judged in a one 10 minute set in front of a panel of judges who was the likes of GARRY K, MC PRESHA, DJ PROFILE and MC IC3 he then progressed into the last 2 Mc's where he had to battle in the last 10 minute finals showdown. Rippa came out on top with all 4 judges agreeing to him being the best up and commer in 2012 and winner of the competition which gains him a years residency being signed to the Random Concept Team as a main room artist at every Random Concept event. (Ic3 had added that he new rippa would win from the off just from his clear vocals and very unique own style that caught his ear from the start of the comp and said this is the guy to beat which was also agree by the other judges)
