The new release “My People” features classy vocals from Yvette – of Boxettes fame – riding high over a tight rhythm track, insistent horns and on it beats. Add in a hookline you won’t forget an irressistable groove, and you’ve got one killer track.
But wait, there’s more. Alongside the original there’s a choice selection of remixers each with their own take on this great track. Toby ioi’s genre crossing sound has already been making waves on ,b>Radio 1, 1xtra, Choice FM and Rinse Toby has worked with and alongside artists such as Sway, Estelle’ Blak Twang and Wiley whilst his production and remix credits include house dons Hoxton Whores, trip hop legend Tricky, chart topper Spoonface, and platinum selling artists; Grammy nominee Tippa Irie and Raghav so we’re delighted to have Dekata joining this distinguished list.
Dekata Project is the brainchild of songwriter, horn player and much in demand session musician Sam Sharpe aided and abetted in the production department by his long time ally dance godfather Zed Bias.
Greymatter is another rising star with an impressive track record having worked with Terry Callier, Domu, TRG, Illum Sphere, Altered Natives, Karizma, Warrior One, Deize Tigrona, Mr Lager,and Milyoo as well as releasing his own material on Wolf Music, Brownswood, Fat City, Tru Thoughts Mr Bongo Bass and Unique Uncut amongst others Recent remix activity includes Throwing Snow, Subeena, Aroop Roy, Klic, and Randomer.
Zed Bias should need no introduction at all After a slew of seminal releases on his own Sidewinder and Sidestepper imprints, he first the UK Charts in 2000 with Neighbourhood, now widely regarded as one of the all time classic UK Garage tracks. He is one of the pioneers of breakbeat garage but is always moving with – or ahead of – the times and his recent productions still grace the playlists of Radio 1 DJs Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs, as well as into the record boxes of DJ / producers like Toddla T, Blame, Skream, Plastician, Oneman, Benga, Kode 9 and Marytn Using his alter ego of Mad Slinky . Mr B has most recently been seen killing it with his recent Make a change album featuring Omar, Skream and many more.
