Born in Stoke Newington North London in 1969, Lol began making electronic dance music with renegade sound system Spiral Tribe in 1991. A year later he formed the seminal dance act The Drum Club with London based DJ Charlie Hall whilst their club of the same name was voted ‘Club of the Nineties’ by the Big Issue. They released three critically acclaimed albums and toured the world extensively with the likes of The Prodigy and Orbital, releasing numerous club anthems including “U Make Me Feel So Good“,“Alchemy“ and “Sound System“ (the later also charted in the official charts). The producer duo also remixed many bands including The Fall, Killing Joke, Lush, Chapter House, Curve, Jah Wobble and the Alabama 3.
Whilst hosting and running several nights in the Brixton area in 2001, Lol was asked to perform a cameo in the film “SW9” that was being filmed in the area and directed by Richard Parry. It turned out Richard was a huge fan of The Drum Club, and in particular the “Alchemy“ track. Lol re-recorded the song for the film with vocalist Lindy Layton (who sang the Beats International #1 single “Dub Be Good To Me”). Richard and Lol struck up a friendship which resulted to Richard asking him to be his music supervisor on the film, which kickstarted Lol’s career which has seen him go on to work on nearly forty films to date.
Either in the capacity as music supervisor or as composer, often now as both, credits include; “Football Factory”, “The Business”, “Bronson”, “The Sweeney”, “It’s All Gone Pete Tong”, “Monsters”, “The Firm”, “London to Brighton”, “The Escapist”, “Pusher“, “Street Dance 1 & 2″, “Horrid Henry”, “All Stars”, and “The Hatton Garden Job”.
Recently Lol has moved into the field of television working on the critically acclaimed series’ “Britannia” for Sky Atlantic and “Bullet Proof” for Sky One which stars Noel Clarke and Ashley Waters, and is airing now. In Lol’s most recent project he has worked as both composer and music supervisor on the Tribeca Festival award winning film, “Obey“, directed by the critically acclaimed Jamie Jones, and set for release later this year.
