Five years ago I released my debut Casio Rap album, Cosmic Sounds. It had been a learning experience from beginning to end. At the beginning I didn't even know how to install Cubase (I still don't know how I did that), and in the end I had no idea how to sell it. To be fair my hopes were unrealistic. I thought Radio 2 would pick it up. During the two-and-a-half year writing process I had envissaged everything from being overrun with orders to winning the Mercury Prize. Neither of these things came even close to happening; I had been naive. But on reflection, Cosmic Sounds did alright. It gained a small but loyal support and a few copies even made their way to the Americas.
