S] What keeps you passionate outside of music?
I think Stewart Baxter, because I wrote my first track with him, he was very patient with me because of my condition. The Warren has influenced me a lot. Also, my late father he helped me align and kept telling me.

It’s got to be selling my debut album, DTRM Uncontrollable – all 30 of my albums have gone, but you can still download it for just £5 via http://dannyivor.wixsite.com/dtrm
