Mekajinn is a hugely experienced music producer from Nottingham, but has lived all over the UK, serving time in Coventry, Manchester and Oxford, as well as a few other places that seem a little less impressive.
His main instrument is the guitar, but he has significant bass playing skills, as well as keyboard. He says he can get a pretty good sound out of most instruments, but not the violin, unless “I play it like a guitar and change the tuning to something sensible.”
Having said that he then admits to using a few weird tuning setups on the guitar, depending on what sound is required.
Influences include Orbital, Motorhead, Aphex Twin, Tresor and the Ramones. His own style is a mix of electronica and organic, with anything allowed from progressive house to the out-and-out weird!
Although he’s pretty busy producing for Mekus, he will be releasing some of his own music on a regular basis.
