Rastah Mouse was born in South Manchester UK 1988, and moved to London to play drums in a punk band 2009. After a quick brush with the law for tagging and various other escapades, he started hanging out in Croydon and listening heavily to dubstep, and quickly moved to producing his own Dubs FL in January 2011.
He spends most of his time hanging out on the street in Croydon and Camden, riding the tube, reading Kerouac, smoking, and welding massive basslines and beats together.
Rastah Mouse joined Soundcloud and Facebook in Feb 2011, and two small online labels, FrontZide (based in Dallas), and Tycho Records (in Calgary, Canada) have already offered to put tracks out. DJs from around the world (USA, UK, Spain, Japan, Brazil, to name a few) have been playing out his tracks in their sets and mixes in clubs, online, and live on air.
He’s currenly laying down tracks for 2 digital releases, a 5 track solo EP for FrontZide Records, and an 8 track mini-album featuring MCs from around the globe for a project to be titled Rastah.Mouse presents: THE INTERNATIONAL DUBSTEP ALLSTARS on Tycho records due for release in Summer 2011 and Nov 2011 respectively.
I caught up with Rastah Mouse, and he blessed Generation Bass with an exclusive track AND mix!
