1. He lives in West London. (Dubstep is historically a south London sound).
2. He’s an only child who learnt piano at 7, is grade 8 music theory and can play tenor sax too. His favourite key is either A minor or C minor right now.
3. His dad used to make jungle, techno and made a tune with the late Stevie Hyper D.
4. It was almost two years between when he first started giving Youngsta beats (on tape!) and Youngsta cutting them. That’s graft!
5. When Olive’s ‘You’re Not Alone’ – which D1’s done a dubstep mix of – first came out, he was 9 years old. He’s 18 now.
