Manchester’s first son of dubstep delivers a frenetic five trackrecord, laced with blues, jungle and 90s house music.
Ever since 2010’s collaboration smash Murderer with US producer Diplo, Jayou’s been forging a name for himself in the underground dance scene and blogging community. With his third EP Manga Riddim, he locates the perfect antidote to dubstep’s dark and brooding genesis, bringing a brighter, livelier tone to the table.
Hitting up a warped driven bass-line, title track Manga Riddim introduces a keys driven nod to 90s House that is set to bring dance floors to their knees. The EP’s B-track Night Owls gently rewires the A-men break to create an end of the night dubstep wind down. Genre spanning remixes come from Triptik manager Tim Shaw and Mr Blazey, with an ambient deep house offering from The Dene Road gives the EP an eclectic versatility.
Triptik manager Tim Shaw said: “We’re really excited to release Jayou’s Manga Riddim EP. He’s got a strong underground following and a sense of playfulness to his music that brings dubstep into a whole new realm.”
The Manga Riddim EP is released exclusively on Beatport on September 18 2011.
