Introducing: KingThing

I linked up with Olly KingThing some time ago through the Future Garage forum, though his music is really undefinable.  His productions have been consistently excellent and are featured in his guest mix, on top of this he’s affiliated with Night Audio & Fortified Audio and showcases some hot forthcoming tracks on each.  For a bit more info, check out this brief interview:

SNF: Always have to start with an intro: where are you coming from and how’d you get into music and production?

KingThing: I’m from Chester, a small town in between Liverpool and Manchester (more or less). Like a fair amount of people i’d been making music in various guises all my life, and then one day somebody stuck a copy of Reason infront of me and I’ve never looked back – i liked the fact that it was all me, there was no working with bandmates etc, i got complete control over the music – which is how i like it ;) So im either an introspective genius or an unsociable cunt, i haven’t decided yet. Its been a fun journey trying to figure it out though:p But through that avenue i came to Logic and Ableton, and it all began to get pretty serious when i moved to Leeds about 4/5 years ago – if you like music, you love Leeds.
