A bedroom producer since the early 2000s, I started putting out mixes as Girl U No Its True in 2006, consisting largely of Miami Bass/Ghettotech/Ghetto House tracks, getting my first taste of club shows at some of the early Night Slugs events in London.
As a DJ I find myself revisiting many of my original influences more than ever as they serve to piece together the kind of sound coming from my favourite artists. I’m a firm believer in the term “Club” as a unifying term for the kind of sound I provide, searching to draw connections from classic 808/909 rhythm tracks and club tools through to ice Rap/Grime/R&B instrumentals via US club tracks and more purpose-built material from the Night Slugs label. Since 2010 I’ve toured across Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.
I.R.L, released on Night Slugs in March 2010 served as a culmination of some of these regional club styles with panicked sense of unease. The EP opens with its title track, punctuated by hammer horror string stabs and descending sawtooths laid over the record’s signature syncopated 808/909 percussion.
November 2010 saw the release of bombastic youtube hit ‘Wut’, again on Night Slugs, capturing my admiration in equal parts for airy trance atmospheres, pop melodies and all the production theatrics at the heart of the crunk sound. ‘Wut’ saw a remix from Dirty Bird boss Claude Von Stroke in 2011, whilst b-side Every Time was bootlegged with Ciara’s ‘Ride’ courtesy of Kingdom and appeared on a split white label.
Remaining largely on remix duties during 2011, releasing mixes on Rinse, Hemlock, LuckyMe and UNO records to name a few.
In April 2012 came the double-pack Club Rez EP, 6 tracks focused around a more eclectic, functional club sound. Having replaced much of my original setup with analog equipment, Club Rez was the result of this shift in working style. Side A’s Ensemble, Cake Boss and Plaza were all conceived as former drum machine jams brought to life with a pop sensibility, whilst Double Take, RezDay and Club Rez acted as a further development from the grandiose nature of the Wut EP.
Currently I’m working on a side project and am beginning work on a LP both due for release on Night Slugs in 2013.
