How important is it for you to have a dedicated creative space?

I think for any creative, having a safe space to experiment and discover is really important. The space should act as an extension of yourself / a symbiotic relationship.

What makes this space work for you?

The fact that the room sounds balanced really helps. All instruments are at arm’s length and the lighting and vibe invoke creativity.

In what way(s) does this space influence your output?

I’m fortunate to work with a lot of great artists and they always comment on the relaxed feeling they have in the space. It feels like a studio but it’s not clinical and stale. That definitely influences my output.

What’s your favourite instrument/piece of kit? And why?

I normally reach for bass guitar but my real instrument is the computer. The imagination is the only limit. Saying that I’ve recently picked up an ASM hydra Synth. It’s blowing my mind.

What would make this space better for you?

I’d love to add a few more bits of hardware. Some mics and preamps and a few synths but that’s not completely necessary to make good music. But it would be fun.
