Weâ€™ve got another interview for you today. This time itâ€™s with Braintreeâ€™s finest; Will Moore (A.K.A. Brown & Gammon). Although taking a short break at the moment, heâ€™s already released two dutty tunes on Circus Records, â€œPainkillersâ€ & â€œThe Bad Bounceâ€, and his refixâ€™s of reggae bangers â€œGwaan Plantâ€ & â€œGanja Smugglingâ€ are proper high-grade tunes. We’ve put “Painkillers” up for preview and “Gwaan Plant” up for download, so you can enjoy these dutty tunes!
Name: Will Moore
Location: Braintree / Canterbury
Can you remember the first time you heard Dubstep?:
About 4 years ago… I was really into producing DnB at the time… love the stuff… A mate showed me some Rusko, I was blown away… was much like time I was just a wee lad stoned out of my face when someone popped the “Jungle Massive” CD on…
First proper dubstep rave I went to was SuperDubPressure down in Brighton… was the first and the best Iâ€™ve been to since!
How would you describe your style/sound?:
I couldn’t really… I donâ€™t think I have a really definitive sound… yet. Iâ€™m on that long path of discovery, but I think Iâ€™m getting there. Each tune I make seems to vary from the last, it depends what Iâ€™m listening to at the time, how I feel and how many cans of Relentless I decide to drink. Expect some low wobbly skankers soon!
Brown & Gammon – Painkillers
Tell us about OutRun?:
hehe! I introduced a friend of mine (who was into his metal, rock etc) to a computer and a synthesiser. I changed his life forever and guided him towards the light. We decided to make some funky chiptune, 80′s beats… it went pretty well, heâ€™s extremely musically talented where as Iâ€™m more technical… put the two together and you can achieve some bizarre stuff!
We wanted to make some chiptune dubstep… thatâ€™s where 8 Bit Spliff came from which did prettty well when it got released on Dirty Circuit Records back in 08.
Have you got any more releases lined up?:
Not at the moment no. Iâ€™m in my last year at Uni… Iâ€™ve been ridiculously busy with my work so I havenâ€™t had time to produce anything in the last 5 months. Am gonna put some stuff to labels when I can.
Brown & Gammon – Gwaan Plant
Whatâ€™s your favourite tune(s) right now?:
James Blake – Air and lack thereof
Noah D – Seeerious
All the Circus crew ofc!
Flux Pavilion, Doctor P, Funtcase… Killing it atm.
Joy Orbison – Hyph Mngo
Datsik – Gizmo
Nero – in the middle
…Thereâ€™s loads… Iâ€™m not gonna go on
What else do you do other than produce?:
Iâ€™m planning to do a masters in computer animation next year so Iâ€™m really getting into that atm… Occasionally whip out the good old skateboard when I can… the usual stuff, see my lady friend… bum around… destroy my brain etc.
To anyone whose heard my tunes… and liked em! Niiiiice one! x
