Remixes have dropped in their droves ever since (his refix of ‘Rhythm & Gash’ is a reload classic). But it’s Spyro’s recent originals that have placed him at the crux of the scene: ‘Side By Side’ featuring Bloodline, and ‘Topper Top’ with Teddy Bruckshot, Killa P and Lady Chann are just two of the tracks that have put him in this position. “I’m very surprised by how much love I’ve been getting,” he says. “I’ve been making songs for half of my life, so for my tracks to be getting all this love now is a blessing.” And he’s just as humble when asked what he thinks of people claiming he’s the best grime DJ around: “Hearing that is an amazing statement, for real. But I’ve still got plenty of work to do.”
Currently working on new music with the likes of Capo Lee, D Double E, Faze Miyake and Ghetts, Spyro promises a debut album next year. “My main aim is to keep putting music out there that the people enjoy,” he tells us. “As long as that happens, I’ll be good.”
