Shnucklz is a music lover who grew up listening to reggae (mum), his first memories are of the jungle scene, being from London, he was heavily influenced by the people he grew up with and started to like the music that ‘the older lot’ were listening to in the youth clubs. His favourite stations at the time were ‘Kool FM’ and ‘Freak FM’ and he has a massive soft spot for ‘old skool jungle’ that will never leave. For him, it was the music that started everything off. He became engrossed in the garage music at the time and started collecting records, even before he got decks! Shnucklz visited many well-known record shops with his mum, including places such as ‘Uptown Records, ‘Blackmarket Records’ and a no longer existing ‘Release the Groove’.
Schnucklz is derived from the word knuckles, but simply with a ‘Shh’ in front of it and a creative change in the spelling.
