Garage trio Preest have been signed to T Williams’ No Tomorrow Records, the label promising to bring a blend between Organic, Electronic and Urban sounds.
Heard this track last night and it gives an idea to Preest‘s musical flavour.
The trio have a forthcoming EP on the label, having come together during university.
T Williams has his own EP coming out alongside some of the artist roster including Jon E Cash. Watch out!

Found a really nice mix from Kiyoko last Sunday, sparring across the ambience soundscape.
As I’m doing sound design and applying cinematic soundscapes on various projects I’m involved with, it was a great find.
Kiyoko are a production duo with an album and 2 EP’s released, linked individually to experimental, rhythmic and ambient labels.
Individually, the duo’s productions have spread far and wide as Synkro (Joe) and Bering Strait (Jack) on labels such as Apollo, Auxiliary, and D-Bridge’s label, Exit Records. Together they each bring something rather special to the party which has entertained the ears of many of us from the very beginning (with their debut album, Sea of Trees) and has left us itching for whatever’s next around the corner.
It’s been a while since my last post..!
Since then I’ve spoken to Toronto based Hip-Hop Artist, producer and more Junia T joined me in the studio for a chat about his latest project I See You (released 4th Nov), manifesting various perspectives of hip-hop as culture through his music.
The musicality and lyricism throughout I See You permeate jazzy flows and rhymes grounded on real life influences.
You can buy the hard copies off Bandcamp and stream/ free download via Audiomack;
Part 1 :: We chat about the project and Junia’s musical influences
The whole project is mixed and mastered by Junia T, with his own unique sound; the goal to artistically reach out and inspire.
My favourite tracks include Too Smoove, Everyday, The Day and No Summer Love; the whole track list throughout smashes it for a evening soundtrack..!
Part 2 :: The Making of “Too Smoove” and Junia’s favourite MCs
On the 27th Sep, I went down to the monthly Interlight session at the Castle, a small pub off Commercial Road in Aldgate.
It was my first time and I didn’t know what to expect. As usual, the place smashed it; the opening DJ’s played a nice mix of Hip-hop and soul before moving straight to jungle.
DJ Stretch, Theory, Bevin and extended family came down to support and the night became progressively heavier in jungle breaks and edits from the relaxed start.
One of the tracks played was Comin’ On Strong, a Reinforced Recs classic!
Shoutout to my brotherman Threshold for smashing his birthday set alongside Uncle Dugs from Rinse. The sets quickly became manic with all sorts of rhythmic breaks played at the dance ;)
Walking into Village Underground after getting through the queue, finding I wasn’t on the list and being persuasive lead to a massive night ahead. Walls of concrete about the place seemingly filled with cave dwellers ready to vibe out at any moment.. I’d say it’s a great start.
I came up from Brixton; a pounding set from DJ Nonames genre hopping through Hip-Hop, Dubstep, Breaks opened up as you went into the place. The guy at the merchandise desk started moshing out now and then when he could adjacent to the full crowd that you see below.
I Am Legion (Noisa & Foreign Beggars) came on afterwards with the line array hard hitting the crowd below, the bass bins shaking the place up alongside crowd dance moves throwing themselves about to the sheer excitement.
Shell Shock, No Holds Barred, Choosing For You and loads of old and new album tracks were played relentlessly during the performance both Noisia and the Foreign Beggars working hard for their best performance.
Lyricism and rhymes over warped basslines & beats, mangled percussive rhythms were delivered with ease between Orifice Vulgatron and Metropolis; both showcasing alternative musical identities in which Hip-Hop could manifest.
Nerm, Nonames and Noisia played at the afterparty inside The Horse and Groom, a disco pub across the road.
Nerm started playing alternative music with an edge moving towards house in middle of his set, Nonames played Hip-Hop/ alternative beats/ Dubstep with Noisia ensuing a takeover playing the hard edged beats, breaks and bass they’re known for. Vibes were heavy! ;)
