Interrupt is relatively new to the scene and only starting producing in 2012, however his take on the digital Reggae style of the late 1980’s is some of the best there is. Now based in London, Interrupt continues to provide his own individual upbeat vibe, which features old-school drum machines, bold basslines and colourful synthesizers. Having worked with Speng Bong, Cubiculo Records and Spanish singers Ponchita Peligros & George Palmer, he already has significant hits under his belt and shows no signs of slowing down.
