Producer and music-maker Christoph El' Truento has been nominated for a Silver Scroll and an Aotearoa Music Award over the past year, the latest accolades in a career that spans numerous genres from footwork to kid's songs.

For his latest LP he returns to the sounds of Jamaica-tinged dub, assisted by guests like Mara TK, Troy Kingi, and Christoph's son Rākai. 

Tony Stamp sat down with Christoph for a chat about the legacy of rocksteady, psychedelic sonics, and balancing joy and grief within a single song.
