J Beatz
Enfield DJ/producer J Beatz is frequently doing something new in grime, recently contributing to No Hats No Hoods’ excellent ‘London to Addis’ compilation. Here he does something that’s never been done before, fusing grime’s distinctly London sound with music from his native land, Mauritius. Séga is the name of the music traditional to the island, and J Beatz takes the rhythmic makeup of the genre (using the ravanne and the triangle) to create an entirely new percussive structure that’s at once tight and huge-sounding. Mixed and mastered by Boylan, this EP is a gem.
