The Sheffield native is back with a big batch of tunes
We think it’s fair to say you’ll struggle to find a new school artist that channels the energy and rawness of old school Bassline quite like J69; whilst it’s easy to see he’s influenced by many different genres, you really get a sense that he’d rep that particular sound from Sheff until he dies.
After his quick (but very sick) foray into UK Funky on 1Forty’s last compilation, J69 is kicking off the first part of the year with a huge choice of new bootlegs and there is something for everyone. Taking on tracks from hip hop and house as well as his preferred genres of Grime and Bassline, each of the 10 tracks is as hard as the last and whilst not all of them stick to your standard 140bpm template, the signature J69 wobs and wobbles over frantic drums are present and accounted for.
We’re particularly fond of the 2step take on David Zowie’s anthemic ‘House Every Weekend’, the guttural bass onslaught on Jay Z’s ‘Tom Ford’ and the transformation of Musical Mob’s ‘Pulse X’ from classic grime banger to frenzied Bassline roller.
