Mr Bonez – Interview

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]oby Cackett, otherwise known as Mr Bonez, is constantly producing bangers that would tear up any dance-floor. Having proved he is a consistently good producer, Mr Bonez is letting the Dubstep scene know what he is all about. Soapbox’s Archie Willis exchanged words with him over a smoke and a pancake.

S.B: Good day Mr Bonez, how did you first get into making music?

Got my hands on a copy of FL7 when I was in year 10. Started messing around on it for about a year when I was still in school, and in year 10 and 11 I was doing music GCSE’s, alongside making the odd tune at home.

S.B:  So what genres have you experimented with and what are you currently producing?

I started off by trying to make some Dubstep and the odd bit of 2 step. I have also tried making House a few times to experiment with my production skills. I have also made a fair bit of Drumstep and DnB in the past too, but for the last two years I have been making Dubstep. I started to take it more serious after a producer/DJ from True Tiger (Stenchman) played one of my tunes in Ministry of Sound in London, I got good feedback from that so I took it from there.

S.B: Nice nice, what is it that really attracts you to dubstep?

There are so many people making dubstep these days so it’s a lot to compete with, but everyone having their own style is really what pulled me into it.

S.B: What would you say music culture in Brighton is like? and who would you recommend looking out for? [pullquote_right] “everyone having their own style is really what pulled me into it.” [/pullquote_right]

There is a wicked music scene in Brighton! It’s a great place to grow up, and it’s even better if you’re a producer/artist! There are a lot of new, up and coming people to look out for. At the moment my first person is going to have to be Dismantle, the number 1 producer/DJ to look out for, and of course the rest of the Gangoon family! Watch out for a young Drum and Bass producer Skyro, great vibes and production.

S.B: Who have you had support from?

Stenchman, Bukez Finezt, BBC Radio 1, Fused Forces, Coki (DMZ), Dismantle, Plastician, Rinse FM and more…

S.B:  And finally, what is your favourite food?

Plateau du Fruit du Mare. French sea food dish. Crab, lobster and oysters lol
