About Me

I am a music student with hopes of becoming a TV theme composer by day and Cybergoth, EBM, Future Pop DJ and musician by night.
I have DJ'd at some popular goth nights around Scotland.
I also have a love of 8-bit and chiptune music which I compose as a hobby.
My early influences include Synth Pop and New Romantic bands and artists from the late 70s and early 80s. More recent influences mostly come from the Cybergoth scene and include EBM, Future Pop and Industrial.
Film and TV composer John Hyde, (composer of Coral, the theme from hit children's sci-fi programme Chocky), also plays a big part in my influences.
I thought, since I create many phrases and drum beats of varying genres that sit unused that I might share some in the form of loops that people might be able to use.
If you need anything 8-Bit, Chiptune, EBM, Synth Pop or Future Pop I've got plenty and can create new loops to order.
