A Hospital family favourite, Emer Dineen’s sublime lyrical work is intertwined through various projects, most notably one of the mainstays in London Elekticity’s live D+B orchestra project – The London Elektricity Big Band, and various releases from Hospital veteran Logistics as well recent signing and soulful D+B maverick Mitekiss.
We here at Songs In The Key Of Knife are truly ecstatic to be able to induct Emer Dineen within our roster.
From the tender age of 15, this London native has been sculpting his sound through the exotic experimentation of other diverse genres that eventually lead him to a steady heartbeat of 170BPM. After the heavy yet steady output of his tracks into the world of D+B, movement on the Mitekiss front began to pick up momentum when ‘Void’, a free track on Skankandbass caught the attention of Shogun Audio head honcho, Friction. This instantly lead to a string of releases across labels such as Shogun, SGN:LTD, Chase & Status’ MTA and more, garnished with support from various acts, including Hybrid Minds on their tear-out UKF mix.
A man of action who currently runs both his own business and co-runs his own label Goldfat Records, we’re very excited to see the what Mitekiss brings to the Hospital and Songs In The Key Of Knife family, and the new heights to which he’ll take his sound!
Few artists master a pioneering sound while keeping true to the roots of the craft. A foundation of jungle influences remain rampant in their production and DJ styles whilst moulding a new D+B movement. Serum, Voltage and Bladerunner have become figureheads individually but together they are much more than the sum of their parts. They are Kings Of The Rollers.
The exceptional rise of the Kings Of The Rollers collective is nothing short of remarkable. As solo artists they’ve released music across some of the scene’s biggest labels including Hospital Records, 31, V, Metalheadz, Ram, Low Down Deep and Reinforced. Their pedigree is clear and the quality even more so.
With Kings Of The Rollers signing exclusively to Hospital Records early 2018, Songs In The Key Of Knife will also look after the publishing interests of the Kings Of The Rollers collective output.
We are excited to announce a number of new guns to be added to the Songs In The Key Of Knife family.
Our first announcement is songwriter: Degs. With a strong R&B and Hip Hop influence, his songwriting and MC’ing soon took a soulful turn proving the adaptability and musical prowess of this accomplished songwriter. Degs draws upon an a broad set of lyrical forms, fusing fast sprays with harmonious singing.
Another lyrical mastermind we welcome to the family is Inja. Artist, MC, Poet, Father, Chef. Spanning genres and pushing art in its most primordial of forms wherever possible, Inja is a true talisman of the underground UK music scene.
Our final announcement is the signing of new kid on the block Unglued. The enigmatic Unglued is the proud owner of 2018’s most sought after dubplate in drum & bass. His bootleg of High Contrast’s anthem, ‘If We Ever’ has had everyone talking, catapulting him straight into the stratosphere of the D+B elite.
2017 has kicked off with an almighty bang here at Songs In The Key Of Knife HQ, with the signing of Dutch DnB heavyweight Fre4knc! A true DJ at heart with many years of experience, Fre4knc (pronounced “frequency”) has been making serious waves in the studio. Due to stand out releases for Noisia’s Invisible, Critical Music, Samurai Music and Dispatch Recordings he has created his own raw, deep and techy drum & bass sound for the dancefloor. Happy new year indeed!
