Drummer/Producer/Songwriter from Bristol, UK.


A textured blend of trip hop inspired indie pop, driven by quirky retro funk beats.


Filtered drum grooves, wobbly synth pads and deep punchy bass lines form the bed for many of my tracks.  Much of what I write is inspired by bands like Portishead, Massive Attack, Zero 7 & other classic triphop bands. 

But my music can have a pop edge with influences like Tame Impala, London Grammar, Bjork, Morcheeba, Lamb... 

Having played drums in lots of bands around the Bristol scene, I started recording local bands and I have recorded and produced many local south west bands.


In 2019 I started to get more interested in writing my own music, and and started releasing my own tracks.   I love collaborating with other artists, and I am always looking for interesting projects :-)

CLASH   - "‘Hello’ reaches into the underworld of xskarma’s sound, a track that embraces its subdued grandeur from start to finish. Inviting the crystalline vocals of glasscat, the two combine to tackle the uncertainty of romance and relationships across hypnotic drum patterns and swaying guitar strums."
