How did you both meet?
We met at college when we were both 16.
Do you think being female within this male testosterone riddled industry is an advantage or disadvantage?
A bit of both.
If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and why?
Kim Ann Foxman is cool, she has a very unique voice.
Bass Music Movement had the pleasure in meeting up with Dub Police’s longest running artist, The Others.
We talk Sci-Fi, cereal, getting signed oh and of course the release of his debut album ‘Red Planet’.
I have just seen you’ve been in San Francisco, How was your trip?
Yep went to San Francisco to play Ritual Dubstep, it was the first stop of four shows in the US and Canada. It was great, always love coming to SF it’s such a beautiful city and the parties are on point.
Your bio states “He is now the longest running Dub Police artist and has acquired the most releases for the label, pairing a prolific work rate with a high quality watermark on all his releases.” How did you start releasing on Dub Police?
I just handed Caspa a CD one night in London many years ago and the next day he rang me and said he wanted to put out some music of mine. At the time ‘Bushido’ was the track he was really in to, ‘Flapjack’ was picking up a lot of momentum gaining support from the likes of N-Type and Joe Nice so we also wanted that on the release.
Bass Music Movement had huge pleasure in hooking up with one of the hottest vocalists within Bass Music right now! She has featured on some of the biggest tracks released over the last few years plus been a big part in some massively successful videos and performed some mammoth live shows world wide.
Tigerlight’s tracks have collected many millions of hits on YouTube, countless plays on BBC Radio One, advert synchronization and featured on movie soundtracks, she has also collaborated with the likes of High Rankin, Document One, Dodge and Fuski and Far Too Loud as well as hosting a handful of radio shows on BBC 1Xtra.
With that sweet sweet introduction out of the way we would like you all to meet the one and only Tigerlight!
When did you realise that you had a talent and singing was the route for you?
If I go more than two days without doing some sort of musical activity I feel impatient. Music centres me, gives me energy and calms me all at once. So I wouldn’t say I ever had a realisation of a talent, more a realisation that for me music is a neccesity.
