Having started writing and producing with an Atari ST and Akai S950 at the age of 16, using his parent’s vast record collection of Rock, Soul and Reggae as inspiration, he soon moved to Liverpool to pursue an education in sound technology. Initially he made his name in the nu skool breaks and drum & bass scenes as party of the renowned Entity crew with releases on Intercom, Viper Recordings, CIA, Cyberfunk, Funkatech, Fusetrax and more, turning out speaker shattering original beats and remixes and establishing himself as a name to watch and a producer to check for.

In recent times he’s switched up his style and turned his attentions to establishing his unique sound, bridging the gap between the contemporary sounds of mid-tempo breaks and glitch hop. In 2009 he launched Skanky Panky Records alongside long time cohorts sixAM. Skanky Panky has since established itself as one of the leading lights of the UK glitch hop scene with an expansive remit that has brought together low end theories from all four corners of the globe, ensuring bass fanatics are consistently catered for with their high quality releases and dedication to getting all our parties started.

A steady flow of solo material, collaborative releases and official and unofficial remixes released through Skanky Panky, Empathy Recs NZ, and now Beta Test have ensured William Breakspear’s glitched up beats, frenetic bass and stuttered riddims have made their way into the record crates of many an international DJ; from Solid Steel’s DJ Food and Cheeba to Mochipet, Parker and beyond. These caught the ears of Rocstar label boss Cut La Roc, leading him to sign Mr Breakspear up for an album deal. "Bardcore" was released May 2012. Stay tuned for more coming atchya real soon…
