Polonis has made a more than notable footprint in the scene so far. So much so, he's now one of the go to producers for MC's all across the country.
Of late, grime has made serious waves up North and Polonis' has very much been flying the flag for it's admirable emergence. But how did one man from Glasgow, starting off making beats in his bedroom, become such a key figurehead in grime?
We take the time to interview the man best known for his refix of 'Ghetto Kyote' - the first producer we've fired questions to on Deez Endz.
What made you start producing grime music?
I started producing because I used to collect acapellas, buying them from emcees and building 8bar tunes!
Growing up in Scotland was grime popular among your age group?
Grime was never that popular in my school at least. There was a few of us that had even heard of it. I can’t speak for other producers in Scotland, but nobody was listening to stuff other than the semi commercial songs.
Have you got any plans to release a project featuring MCs?
My next EP is going to come out with Kenyon Sound. That’s a 4 track EP with “The Key” on there…
For personal projects, I’m going to put out a free download at the end of the year that features many of my favourite emcees!
Who would you like to collaborate with?
My dream collaborations emcee wise would be with Tempa T or Novelist. I feel those tracks would be amazing!
Producer wise, Dexplicit vs Polonis would be wild!
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
I don’t know where to see myself in five years. Someone get me a crystal ball.
Your work with Faultsz is hard. How did you two link up?
I can’t remember how I got talking to Faultsz but I’m beyond grateful he’s been using my tracks! We’re still due to make Regulators EP but everything has its own time and place!
Make sure you go see him live at Night In the Forest on Friday night hosted by Kenyon Sound and also keep a look out for more interviews coming soon.
