Guest Mix: JEB1

avatars-000094926222-fnm6fn-t500x500

To say JEB1 is prolific is an understatement. A constant string of EPs, singles, edits, and dubs are just part of the story as JEB1 is just as likely to drop a vocal track as an instrumental, and, if that’s not enough to keep him busy, he’s also returned to mixing – the results of which you can hear below in an exclusive guest mix that contains plenty of unheard freshness from JEB himself, as well as some other bits and pieces to make your ears happy.

LTHL – Interview & Free Download

lthl

As 2014 winds to a close, I’ve been thinking about the best new producers to have emerged over the last 12 months, and one person in particular who has made a big impact in a short time is Canterbury based LTHL, who, over only four short months, has continually dropped the kind of tunes that take up long term residency on my phone, which is about the highest praise I can offer anyone! I spoke to LTHL about pronouncing his name correctly, previous aliases, future releases and more. He’s also been kind enough to let me give away one of my percy’s from his Soundcloud, which you can get below. Continue reading

Eso: “Ashikaga” Free Download and Interview

Eso 1Eso may be best known for his appearance on this year’s “Boxed: Volume 2“, but a quick look at the London based producer’s Soundcloud page will provide ample evidence that Eso is definitely one to listen out for. With no less that 4 brand new songs posted up inside the last fortnight, it seems that Eso is on a fine run of form, so I thought I’d ask him about his music, inspirations, gaming, Boxed, and more. Thankfully, he answered – and, being a generous soul, he’s also dropped an exclusive tune for you, “Ashikaga”, to download below! Continue reading

Sheik – Guestmix and Update

avatars-000098221152-lha5zx-t500x500

Considering that I only spoke to Sheik in July, I have to admit that I didn’t expect to be blogging about him again quite so soon, but when I saw that he was sending out guestmixes I jumped at the chance to get one for the blog, which you can get below. And that’s not all that’s going on in Sheik’s world, as I found out when I asked him a couple of questions… Continue reading

Sheik – Roll Deep When Emir…

Obviously, as a grime blogger, my principal concern is grime music, but, every now and then,  when I come across a producer capable of making so much more than grime, boxing them off as a “grime producer” doesn’t really tell the full story, and this is certainly the case with Bumps Familia member Sheik. The more I spoke to London based Sheik, the more apparent his love for music became. It’s a passion that’s also evident in the tunes he’s been making lately too, ranging from latin house and reggae, as well as some evil grime instrumentals that are clocking up spins from the likes of Slackk. So, how did Sheik start out making beats? What does he like about making grime, and can he make a beat whilst hungover? I found out… Continue reading
