If you asked someone in 2012 who Kove was, they’d have most likely looked unsure. Cut to two years later, Kove is one of the most in-demand remixers of the moment and has forayed into producing original music.

Born James Rockhill, thousands flock to Kove’s SoundCloud page on the regs to hear the wide variety of music he creates- from drum and bass to deep house and beyond. He can even count Annie Mac, BBC Radio 1’s signature DJ, as a fan.

1. “I own every Nickelback album and can admit it.”
2. “I have a few webbed toes, but can’t swim.”
3. “I used to be the heavy eyeliner-ed keyboardist in a synth pop band. We were shit.”
4. “I racked up over 2 grand in parking tickets in just over six months.”
5. “I have a severe phobia of vomit. Probably something to do with how often people have thrown up on me.”
