"In the early days I had nothing – just a shit laptop. I’ve lost over 3,000 tunes easy. We were so hungry to make tunes,me and my friend used to walk around looking for computers that had been thrown away. I found one in someone’s garden and it was really shit– 4GB of hard drive space and 128MB of memory.
"But it worked. I had to delete stuff that you weren’t supposed to delete to make it run faster and get more space. We were deleting applications that made the computer run like the Windows folder.I would’ve deleted the Recycle Bin if I could.
"I’m realclose with Roni Size as well and I used to go down to his studio and see all the gear and I’d be thinking, ‘Wow, this is like all the shit I see in Reason, but for real’. I remember seeing Logic for the first time and everyone was talking about it. The thing that pissed me off about Reason was that you couldn’t use VSTsin it. It was supposed to be used with Logic or Pro Tools or whatever, so I couldn’t record anything into it. I’d messed around on a few hardware synths and they sounded like a track straightaway so I knew I had to get some. I got a copy of Logic Express and a Mac."
