Will Ashon made a name for himself as the founder of UK record label Big Dada, the revolutionary hip hop offshoot of the influential Ninja Tunes label. Concurrent to running the label Ashon is also an accomplished author with his first novel ‘Clearwater’ being published by Faber and Faber. Clearwater presents an ambiguous review of modernity with any moral conclusions intriguingly dependant on the assumptions made by the reader throughout the novel. Trebuchet spoke to Will Ashon about the mathematic basis of his novel, hip hop, and ‘writing the 80s both forward and backwards’.
