DRUMWORKS presents SL8R (V Recs)
w/ JAY ROME, AUDIO DEVICE, PHLAGE
It would be hard to find a more exciting and dynamic music scene than Manchester right now. As well as a core group of veterans that have been flying the flag for decades, we’re continually seeing a fresh crop of artists coming through the ranks. Despite suffering some of the strictest local restrictions, it hasn’t stopped an unbelievable amount of top-quality music coming out of the rainy city. Some of the very best has come courtesy of Sl8r.
The Brummie-born, Manchester-based artist has already built himself a stellar reputation, with a back catalogue that boasts releases on a host of labels including Delta9 Recordings, Deep In The Jungle and Skankandbass.
His talents were soon spotted by the seminal V Recordings, where label boss Bryan Gee was quick to announce Sl8r was going to be the ‘next big thing in the scene.’ Just as comfortable tackling raucous jungle beats as he is an ethereal roller, his diverse and varied creations showcase a talent for producing right across the drum and bass spectrum.
He’s found a home on V’s Chronic imprint of late, with his most recent single dropping last month. Mimosa/Ambra sees him take inspiration from his time at Sun & Bass festival to craft two jazz-flecked rollers that embody V Recordings’ past, present and future.
Elsewhere, over the lockdown period he started crafting an exciting new jungle project with multi-genre talent Chimpo, as well as trying his hand with some garage beats; an avenue that he hopes to explore more over the coming months.
