ABOUT AS.IF KID
Born on January 27th 1995
Grew up in Swindon, Wiltshire, England.
Got into music from aged 8 when parents bought me a drum kit for Christmas.
Started getting lessons and my drum teacher was in a band he used to bring me to his gigs . The band was called The Rolling Clones , a tribute band to the Rolling Stones
Eventually joined my own bands in school , did my own gigs playing all kinds of music from indie rock , to heavy metal! About aged 12.
Got a synth for Christmas one year and a Roland TD-6V drum kit another year started playing them together, forming the basis of music production and sequencing, got my parents to thank for helping me start it off !
When I was a bit older , in 2011, I did a weeks work experience at Rinse FM and that introduced me to producing using a laptop and logic pro and also learning how to DJ at Rinse FM academy ! This is where I started getting my own links to people in the industry!
Went on to study Audio Production at the University of Lincoln, and whilst here did an exchange to MSUM (Minnesota state university) USA, learnt my craft properly recording etc with some really talented people, started sending beats to people in the industry getting radio plays from DJs in UK on Rinse FM / R1xtra etc.
I was sending beats to DJ Slimzee, we met up and eventually guested on his shows on Rinse he introduced me to DJ Argue and that's how I found myself doing a show on Radio . I was working with loads of other producers in grime , dubstep and hip hop etc ! Then started working at a studio , working with Mob set etc , the music started to develop and after a while I was collabing with some really cool artists and producers such as Lewi White , Denon , Sophia Christina , JB , Okan and more. I became a part of the Slimzos Family around these times . We have hosted events in London and Amsterdam , even co-hosting a stage at Outlook festival 2018
In 2017 DJ Slimzee and myself started an Alias called E3 Breaks , combining breakbeats with grime and 2 step . Rotpot Records/ Slimzos Recordings is the home to many E3 Breaks and AS.IF KID productions. E3 Breaks has also had notable releases on Cutcross Recordings (run by Sicaria Sound) , releasing " Sickle Cell" and a release on Nomine Sound .
Ive been working with Raggs , a sick sax player/ producer and lots of experience in the dubstep and UK garage scenes , shes been a great help and providing support on my journey ! We are currently collaborating on an alias project called "Slamfire" . We have been combining sax with grime, drill and dubstep .
Then I met Clement Marfo , this is where I started to really get into swing , and creating a whole host of commercial / urban and pop styles , these relationships are stronger than ever , making some quality sounding records for future projects! We are pushing each other further every session!
I then decided to take a trip to Los Angeles, after the Adekunle Gold "Young Love" record came out , I met Babywinsch , a rap producer , we have made tonnes of amazing beats and worked together strongly since , getting together with some artists out there doing drill and rap stuff!
Whilst there I met Azealia banks and stayed at her house for over a week with another producer. We created and recorded a few records with her being Salchichon (Dembow style) and Nirvana ,(uk drill influence) both of which she was rapping in Spanish and English-
Rap and Hip Hop

Currently Im actively writing a lot of

projects to expand my brand.
