Reid is more than a producer, the North West Londoner blends a variety of sounds and genres to create his own subdivision of sound. Skirting through elements of hip hop, beats, grime and electronica, connecting the dots between the genres. His production displays elements of the sound curated by London. His approach to making music is meticulous and thorough, never accidental. On his latest EP, each track was created with the intention of appearing on the project. As Reid expands, “I didn’t make ten tracks and pick the best five, every song serves a purpose.”
Reid has also enjoyed great success as a DJ, having appeared on the bill alongside Skepta and Run The Jewels at Warehouse project. Also holding down sets alongside Stormzy, Travis Scott, ASAP Ferg, Sam Gellaitry, Jarreau Vandal and Novelist to name a few while his music has received radio play from the likes Benji B, Oneman, Julie Adenuga, Plastician & many more.
Rooted in London and with Moroccan & South Sudanese heritage respectively, Imbratura (Lou) & Ndeko (Sancha) have firmly established themselves as selectors of new and underground darker 140bpm sounds.
Having first bonded over music at university whilst frequenting dances such as Deep Medi, SYSTEM & Contact, the pair have since aligned their musical interests. From Imbratura’s love for grime & dancehall to Ndeko’s foundations in roots & sound system culture, a love for music across the spectrum inspired both to have pursued careers in the music industry, going on to work as multimedia producers & sound engineers.
Over the past few years that the pair have been DJing together, they’ve affirmed themselves as radio regulars with their monthly Radar Radio show since 2016 championing existing & upcoming bass musicians, notably within the genres of dubstep & grime. With past & forthcoming bookings for nights such as Deep Medi, SLSA, Shak Out, Keep Hush as well as more upcoming international dates, you can expect plenty forthcoming from these two including some of their own productions & exciting collaborations.
