1. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions, for those that don’t know, who are you, what do you do and what style(s) of music do you play?
My pleasure! My name is Paul Dobson, better known as breaks and bass music producer/dj ‘Refracture’. I play anything I like the sound of really. It can vary from breaks to electro to dubstep and beyond. If it sounds good to me and it fits, then it goes in the set.
2. Tell us a bit about what you’re working on now, any releases on the horizon?
Currently I have a few projects on the go. I have collabs with Kid Panel and Deenk to finish, an up coming collab with The Crystal Method and a couple of solo originals to do. I also have a release with Run Riot coming out on Skint in the not too distant future.
3. What other artists have you been feeling recently, who are you currently championing in your DJ sets?
My ‘go to’ tracks in sets always tend to be Elite Force’s revamps. They always work well no matter where I drop them it seems! Apart from that, people such as Kill Paris, Lucky Date and Beatman & Ludmilla are doing it for me at the moment.
