xKore (Matt Cavender) is an 18 year old dubstep/drumstep producer based in Kent, in the South-East of the UK.
He first started out 4 years ago producing house and progressive trance. However his style eventually evolved into what it is today, a blend of dubstep, drumstep, electro, drum and bass aswell as other styles of bass music.
House and trance acts such as Signalrunners, Spencer & Hill and Klaas were some of his early influences, and what got him into electronic dance music. Through experimentation and influence from popular bands such as Pendulum and Noisia, xKore developed a more bass orientated style.
Stylistically, xKore likes to have influences that are outside of EDM, such as Yoko Kanno and Harry Gregson-Williams. He views film and game soundtracks as a great source of inspiration.
His setup is mostly software based. He uses FL Studio 10 as a DAW and NI Massive, NI Kontakt and 3xOsc as his main tools of production.
xKore is being seen as an up and coming talent within the dubstep community, being supported by artists such as Skream, Benga, Knife Party, Camo & Krooked, Borgore many others.
