Renowned producer Paul Epworth is set to launch new project Wolf Tone with a flurry of new signings.
One of the most successful producers in British (and, indeed, global) music, Paul Epworth has developed very acute tastes. So news of a fresh project, focussing entirely on unknown talent, has rather pleased the Clash office. Wolf Tone - named after shadow vibrations on a string instrument, fact fans - is a new project which finds the producer working with a series of emerging artists.
Amongst the first flurry of signings is Toronto-based hip-hop producer and songwriter Jeremy Rose, aka Zodiac, who is already well known via his work with The Weeknd. "I'm extremely flattered and excited that one of the world's top producers wanted to bring me on to this project," Zodiac commented. "I hope to learn and expand as a producer as well as fuck with all his cool synthesizers. We're going to make some great music here." Paul Epworth was clearly delighted by the move:
“I'm absolutely delighted to make Jeremy the first signing to Wolf Tone... His forward thinking, musical and textured production is quite unlike anything else and made him the perfect candidate to start Wolf Tone's roster.”
Other signings include former Rapture bass player turned songwriter Mattie Safer and Dominic Betmead - one half of acclaimed turntablist duo The Nextmen.
