Where It Began
It was from a young age that TS7 realised he had a huge interest in music. From the age of just 5, TS7′s parents made him have lessons to learn how to play the piano. He went on to achieve grade 5 by the time he was 13. Producing started for TS7 at the young age of 14 when he managed to get hold of the software â€˜Fruityloops’ (now known as FL Studio). He began making grime music in his spare time, in an attempt to establish himself in the grime/garage scene. However he could not fully focus on his musical aspirations as he played football at a high level, playing for Bradford City and Hull City.
It wasn’t until 2006 that TS7′s musical career began after failing to secure a contract with the above teams..
TS7 really began to focus on producing throughout the year of 2006, mainly focussing on grime/garage music. It wasn’t until winter 2006 that TS7 produced his first bassline hit that would go on to establish him in the bassline scene. This was entitled â€˜Flip Flop’. He sent this to the leading DJ’s in the scene such as Jamie Duggan, DJ Q, Shaun Banger Scott, Apostle and Nev Wright to name a few. After getting his material played in the nightclubs, and on various radio stations such as BBC 1Xtra, TS7 began to receive DJ bookings at the young age of 16..
It was in 2007 when TS7 triumphed to become one of the leading producers in the scene, producing bassline hits such as â€˜Smile’, â€˜Raise Your Glasses’, â€˜Ding Dong’, â€˜Crazy Crush’, and â€˜Come On Over’Â just to name a few. He was playing out every weekend in attempt to push the scene, and his own sound forward. TS7 was also at 6th form, studying Music, Maths and Economics. It wasn’t until late 2007 that the music industry realised bassline had the potential to cross over commercially.. After consistently producing bassline anthems throughout the year, In December 2007, TS7 was approached by Atlantic Records to produce a remix of Estelle’s â€˜American Boy’ which went on to reach number 1 in the national charts!
2008 went from strength to strength for the young, 17 year old producer from Bradford. Throughout the year he was doing official remix work for labels such as Sony BMG, EMI, Ministry Of Sound and Atlantic Records. He remixed smash hits such as â€˜Estelle â€“ American Boy’, â€˜Sugarush Beat Company â€“ L.O.V.E’, â€˜James Doman â€“ Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’, and â€˜Jason Phats ft Ben Ofoedu â€“ Can’t Stop’ and more recently, Platnum’s smash ‘Loveshy’ just to name a few. He has featured on many compilations that have been released throughout the year. TS7 also appeared on national television, on the BBC2 show, â€˜Sound’. The video of this can be seen here.
