Earthpipe has always had an interest in ultimate sound quality that started in his teens, spending every penny he had on his hi-fi and music and writing essays on this subject at school. 5 years of studying sound technology in the late 90's in Nottingham, and working under the watchful eye of the mighty Iration Steppas at Subdub in Leeds has made him the the Sound Boy he now is.

He has a keen interest in producing his own music and is building his studio in Nottingham.

An earthpipe is an ancient traditional smoking device made from the earth. This smoking technique is found in Africa and is usually made in the clay found on riverbanks by moulding clay around a reed or grass stem then pulling out the reed leaving a tube under the ground. A bowl to hold the herb is made at one end and the users mouth is put to the ground to use the device.
