Bristol based artist, Calvertron aka Alex Calver is growing more popular by the day. Becoming renowned for sets that mirror his diverse production sounds, Calvertron is an internationally accomplished DJ, impossible to pigeonhole and quickly emerging as a front runner in the ever growing global bass music scene. We caught up with Alex for quick-fire interview ahead of his set at Chew the Fat! & Dub-All Or Nothing on Friday night here at Cable.

1. When I grew up I always wanted to be...
A Footballer, I was football crazy as a kid, a big Man Utd supporter, I was captain of the school team and played for Cardiff boys team (until I moved away at a young age). Like a lot of kids I suppose.

2. You wouldn't expect it, but sometimes I listen to...
I love all kinds of music, nothing too obscure really but can appreciate most types of music. Should I be embarrassed when admitting to be a Coldplay fan? (it helps me relax on flights)

3. My signature dance move is...
When I was a kid I was the best head-spinner in the school (breakdance stylee). When the teacher went out of the class I used to run to the front and a get a quick head-spin in before they came back. Was all fun and games until my hair started falling out at 11 years old! I think I'd probably break my neck if I tried that now. (I haven't gone bald yet though thankfully)

4. My favourite YouTube video at the moment is...
A personal favourite of mine is 'Badgers', gets me every time, gotta love that snake! (I'm easily amused)



5. My next release is...
My remix of 'Skepta - Peace Not War' just dropped on iTunes, I'm currently finishing off a 6 track EP, it will probably be released on my label 'Jack Knife' mid June.



6. After I finish my set you will find me...
Hunting beer and kebabs.

7. My perfect hangover breakfast is...
Full English obviously! Don't come near me for a couple of hours if there were baked beans involved.

8. If I get a weekend off I like to...
Stay as far away from nightclubs as possible, you would probably find me on a golf course somewhere.

9. I love...
Music, travelling, my friends n' family and my Dad's lasagne (best on the planet!)

10. I fear...
War, spiders and turbulence (an occupational hazard!)
