He’s also collaborating with Sinead Harnett, George the Poet, Scrufizzer, Submotion Orchestra and Fallen. He founded the renowned club night Vagabondz, which is now part of the Outlook Festival in Croatia. He also writes hip hop as Tarqwin Smythe with Ed Thomas of Gentleman’s Dub Club, and in 2009 formed producer duo Seemore Productions.
