We’ve know each other for a couple of years and made an EP as Inxec & Mark JenkynsÂ for Leftroom Recordings. 12 Stories is respectfully a totally different concept and we are trying to lay focus without and pre conception. The name comes from Chris trying to be clever.
Your excellent new release: Bright Lights on VIVa MUSIC features a striking vocal from Digitaria. How did that come about?
Mark & Daniella (Digitaria) had been talking about doing something, and the vocals that she had recently sent gave us the idea for Bright Lights.

Can you talk us through how you produced the track â€“ including any favourite studio software/ hardware you like to use?
Not really it’s a secret.
Who would you say are your main influences both old and new?
Mark: One of my biggest influences is Matthew Jonson and to date, is still my favourite producer.
Chris: My Little Brother, he got me into making electronic and he’s the only person who truly tells me if my stuffs shit.
How do you feel about the current replaying of old sounds from the late 80’s/ early 90’s: positive or negative for Dance music?
Well if it’s done right. Then well done. Obviously a rave horn isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, my mum included. Marks mum is full on rave horn friendly.
What’s the story behind your current Night Obscure EP for Hot Creations? And where did the inspiration come from for that production?
This reverts back to us forming, and this being the first ep signed, was probably catalyst behind 12 Stories progressing and being BLESSED enough to sit here doing this interview…
