Hailing from Sussex, Kove’s forays into music production began in 2006. By 2009, he’d moved to London to produce an electro-pop band, and he continued honing his production skills, initially crafting more down-tempo efforts. In 2010, he was introduced to the world of 170BPM dance music when he was invited to watch the Brookes Brothers.
Setting his sights on making his mark in the ever-expanding drum and bass scene, he was brought to the attention of Viper Recordings boss Futurebound, who released his first two tracks “Stellar” and “Breach” in early 2012.
Shortly after, Ram Records’ Andy C picked up Kove’s track “Iodine,” which led to an invitation to play his first DJ set at Ram’s label night at Fabric. “Iodine” quickly became a staple for many of the scene’s biggest DJs. “Iodine” was released at the end of 2012 on Ram’s sister label, Program and was supported by UKF’s YouTube channel. The release of “Iodine” created awareness to a wider audience and Kove was offered the chance to remix the much-hyped Brooklyn duo Deap Vally. His remix of “The End of the World” was featured on UKF and was given away as a free download.
