I wrote the instrumental pretty quickly and knew it needed a top-notch rapper.
All the classic musical elements of Orbital that had made such an impact on my own production style were present and correct – it was an incredible experience.
When this was released as a single in January 2010, it was quite weird hearing something I wrote nine years ago being resurrected on BBC Radio 1.
The release of this record was an incredible moment for me, as it included a mix by one of my personal heroes; Paul Hartnoll of the legendary Orbital.
‘Screamer’ was written over a single afternoon in Cardiff student digs back in 2001 and always reminds me of that particular time whenever I hear it.
It was made using only an ageing i Mac and Yamaha hardware sampler.
