From "council estate rebel" to Dubstep sensation

It didn’t take long for BMX-riding “council estate rebel” Antony Williams to make his mark. Written using only a PowerBook in his bedroom, his first release on the Ascension label last year impressed Tempa – the dubstep scene’s biggest label – so much that they called him in for a meeting and signed him exclusively on the spot. Since then the 25-year-old’s sleek, electronic take on the sound has featured on the ‘Tempa Allstars Vol 3’ doublepack and his first solo EP, ‘Futurebound’ – and the London imprint has proven to be the perfect home for his music. He says: “I want to do something no one else has, to an extent. I’ve been into many styles of dance music, like trance, techno, jungle and garage, so I wanted to bring that into dubstep. Tempa are an amazing label with the history and the forward-thinking focus to push the sound in new directions.”
