Majora x FatKidOnFire

[Artist Highlight]

It’s been a while since I’ve been sent a release that combines a (relatively) new label and producer into a truly astounding selection of tunes, but the following EP from Majora and Tumble Audio is so ridiculously good you all need to buy it now…

“Following on from new Nottingham party label, Tumble Audio’s  first release, the impressive ‘XTC by Killjoy (aka Core, who’s first solo 12 inch debuted on the Aquatic Labs imprint in October last year,) comes the mighty ‘Boss Key EP’ from hotly tipped Bristol based producer, Majora.

“Majora announced his arrival onto the UK Bass music scene in fine style last year, featuring on the absolutely banging My Nu Leng 12 inch, ‘The Grid/Hips n Thighs EP which garnered almost universal critical acclaim when it dropped in October on 877 Records, featuring prominently in Kmag’s “best of” bass music releases that month.

“The ‘Boss Key EP’, Majora’s debut solo release, takes up where ‘Hips n Thighs’ left off. Weaving between and combining elements of UK funky, house, grime, ice cold electro workouts and even trap, Majora creates a wholly satisfying and unique inclusion into the UK bass music cannon, injecting a fresh life and energy into a genre seemingly in stasis at the moment.”

It’s quite hard to believe this release is Majora’s debut solo drop, as this young producer has been putting out quality ‘UK bass music’ (or whatever the latest title is) for as long as I’ve known of him.

With support from BBC 1Xtra, Rinse FM, NTSLive, De Ja Vu, GetDarker TV and some of the finest producers and DJs in the sound, I can guarantee Majora’s got a long and fruitful career ahead of him!

If you’re unaware of Tumble Audio, peep their bio below:

“Tumble Audio was founded in 2012 by MIMM Recordings‘ label manager Oli Gibbons as an outlet for tunes designed to move hips, shake legs and raise fists.

“Since its inception, Tumble Audio has taken the Nottingham dance music underground by storm, putting on its own trailblazing nights as well as collaborating with other prominent promoters in the city, to create a newly buzzing and invigorated scene that has many an outside observer looking in with jealous eyes.”

It’s worth checking MIMM’s website as well; they’re an independent streetwear store and record label based in Nottingham and set up with funding from the Prince’s Trust. Proper admirable stuff!
