The young samurai ronin has been formulating his unique and devastating sound since 2002. Early Rave and Hip Hop influences in 1993 prompted the acquisition of his first turntables, which then led to an unrelenting obsession in scratching and the life long search for interesting musical melodies.
Teaming up with Newcastle based dj, Maroon, the duo formed one of the UK’s leading all scratch based music groups, NozL, and shaped their own record label in NozL Recordings. Although Lone Wolf’s early dark beats at 140bpm were made for the intention of double timed scratching, the structure of the patterns were similar to that of the emerging Grime sound and later, Dub/Breakstep.
The Wolf’s name has become synonymous with his own distinctive sound. Formulating heavy Dub/Breakstep patterns and blistering bass-line drops, Lone Wolf annihilates dance floors by drawing upon his influences of thrashing guitar riffs and death metal vocals, to showing off a more, old skool, breakier side.
His work has developed over the years to include releases on various esteemed labels and also produces as his alter egos ‘Shapes and Colours’ and Andy Kirk. Lone Wolf is part of the energetic touring Community Skratch Games live events, which he brings his captivating head nodding syncopated beats and funky cutting style to the ever enthusiastic crowds around Europe.
Of late, Lone Wolf has focused his creative interests to film making where he can channel his passion of cinematic composition and music into one entity. This is where the future is headed and it is a very exciting time indeed.
