Danny Scrilla seems to epitomise the push and pull, the old and new in UK electronic music.
The producer nods towards rolling jungle breaks, towards the furious energy and creative expansion of dancehall - but then, he's also keep to explore new realms, to seek out fresh sounds.
It's a conundrum. Developing a unique voice, the producer's style - at times ruffneck, at others smooth - is instantly recognisable. New EP 'True Sight' will be released on June 29th via Cosmic Bridge, a varied and insightful return from a producer whose whims and tastes and always worth exploring.
Ahead of this, Danny Scrilla has kindly agreed to piece together a fresh mix for Clash. Containing a flurry of his own productions, the emphasis is on breaking bass vibrations, with the selector throwing in some Om Unit, DJ Madd and LV & Josh Idehen along the way.
