Named after a fictional DC Comics supervillain, Chemo first started as a producer and DJ for London Hip Hop group ‘Frontline’. He helped found legendary Hip Hop night ‘Speakers Corner’ in Brixton. Off the back of Speakers Corner, Chemo worked on albums for Verb T, Kyza, Kashmere, Manage, Jehst, Triple Darkness and others.

In 2007, Chemo produced a compilation album titled Squirrelz With Gunz, alongside World DMC champion DJ Skully. A second compilation of his work between 2007-2011 entitled The Stomach of the Mountain was released in 2011.

Telemachus (born in 2011) is a pseudonym used for Webb’s solo projects and to allow him to be “a little more artful.”.[3] The debut release was a 7″ Vinyl entitled ‘Scarecrows’ featuring Roc Marciano. This was taken from the ‘In The Evening’ album which was awarded album of the month by Q Magazine and named one of the albums of the year by The Quietus.[4] Telemachus followed up this album by travelling to North Africa in 2014 to create his ‘In Morocco’ album.

Chemo continued to produce for numerous vocalists and was lauded in particular for executive producing albums for Jam Baxter and Onoe Caponoe on High Focus Records.

In April 2020 Telemachus signed to High Focus Records and soon after released his latest album Boring & Weird Historical Music on High Focus Records.[5]
