    Why do all your tracks sound the same?

    Dear Break.
    Everyone knows when it comes to making tracks, you rule.

    Why haven't you sold out and started making overly high pitched scretchy synth crap that sells in the mainstream, then brought yourself a boat with the profits?

    P.S. Please send me your dubs and unreleased material in exchange for chocolate money.

    Why do people think you are so overrated?

    Only kidding, can we expect another album in the near future?

    Before you had your own sound who's were you trying to emulate?

    Do you think that in our demand for perfect production we have sacrificed certain other ideas/vibes/processes. Have your own production decisions been affected by this demand?

    There doesn't seem to be as many Break tunes around these days compared to 5 years ago. A creative decision or are you up to something else?

    If I am nearer 40 than 30, do I look ridiculous when I go out raving?

    What you do must be very satisfying but unless you are willing to follow a certain route I assume there is little money in the drum and bass prodcuction game. Would you recommend this life to yourself as a 16 year old?

    Can I spend a day in the studio with you?

    On a serious note:

    You're a keen sampler, whats your process for finding samples where do you draw inspiration from for them?
    How do you go about getting those gritty yet still very subby basslines to sit well?

    how do you get your drums sounding so nice?
    do you use sample packs or sample your own drums and hits etc?

    What DAW are you currently using, and what synths / plugins do you find yourself using most often?
