The latest in our Leeds local series is no newcomer to the music scene, having already constructed a very popular previous project. This time though he's solo and using his everyday name, James Welsh.
Alongside his day job of working in a studio in Sheffield, James has turned his production skills to a stripped down, slowed down, version of House, sometimes even straying into the realms of Disco. Normally a grooved out bassline is prominent or an addictive vocal loop or perhaps a little nod to the past, perhaps even a touch of acid. Most importantly, all of it's tight and crisp. Here's a smooth Hip Hop little bootleg which he's made available for free.
Real Hip Hop (James Welsh's Landerneau Mix) - Das EFX
Recent news in the Welsh camp is that he's had an EP signed to Hypercolour's sister label Losing Suki. It's a four track release, straight up original productions. 'Integra' has been made available to download.
