Prism studied under Vance Gordan [Dicenso's Drum Shop/First Class Band] specializing in Afro Cuban rhythms and the Moeller technique prior to venturing into music production. Being fortunate enough to have a close friend with a Roland MV8800 and a father with an endless collection of rare vinyl gave birth to PRISM's first endeavour into making music. "OMEGA" represented a vast and eclectic style of sample based instrumental Hip Hop defined by his lifetime observation of music such as: Pat Metheny, Goldie, Mahavishnu Orchestra, BT, Fonky Family, Sizzla, J Dilla, Chinese Contemporary Classical Music, The Prodigy, Cultura Profetica, Buena Vista Social Club, Fear Factory, Chick Corea, Orbital and many more that inspired him to persue music originally. After studying many Buddhist texts, World Philosophies, Native American rituals, listening to artists such as Heny G, Mala, H.O.D, Loefah, Synkro, Silkie and Quest and becoming more and more intrigued by the intricate likeness of all societies, cultures and religions, PRISM was created with a deeper purpose, not only to showcase all of these influences but to convey an awareness that all things, no matter how different they may appear in physical form, are all the same.
Having an ear for deep jazzy tunes. and hugely influenced by the early Metalheadz vibe, Prism continues this sound in his selection of dubstep, playing vinyl and unreleased dubs from around the world. Always in tune with the roots of what started both Dubstep and Drum and Bass, Prism’s selection rarely strays away from raw, emotional bass music but contains something for everyone which will insure a good time for all who catches one of his sets.
