DJ, producer, remixer, label boss... for nearly a decade now Graeme Sinden has stealthily been establishing himself as one of the leaders of UK dance music as we know it.
Sinden cut his teeth in the early days making records with Switch under his Solid Groove guise with choice cuts like ‘Overbooked’ and ‘Red Hot’. It was also around this time that Sinden would meet another soon-to-be long term collaborator, Joshua Harvey aka Herve. The pair would go on to release their debut album as The Count and Sinden on Domino Records, featuring a wealth of special guests including the Mystery Jets and a young Katy B.
In 2010 he took the leap that many producers hope to do and founded his own label, Grizzly. Sinden himself has helmed four releases on Grizzly – two collaborations with SBTRKT in ‘Midnight Marauder’ and ‘Seekwal’, and last year’s ‘Pull Up Wheel Up’ and ‘Keep It 1000’. This is a label boss who likes to get involved. And he still finds time to remix the likes of Willy Moon, Dr Gonzo, Santigold and Passion Pit. In 2011 he was chosen as the official producer of the second Gucci Mane mixtape for Mad Decent, ‘Free Gucci 2’, featuring a who’s who of British producers including Hudson Mohawke, Toddla T, Duke Dumont, Mosca and Rustie each offering their own unique take on the biggest Gucci jams.
Always keen to set new challenges for himself, itchy feet and the need for a change of scene prompted a move to Los Angeles in January of last year, which was and continues to be a hugely positive experience for Graeme. In light of this, 2013 will see him extend his skills even further with production for artists including Mykki Blanco plus collaborations with A-Trak, Harvard Bass, Brenmar, Roska & Salva as well as releases scheduled in for Fools Gold, Unknown To The Unknown, Grizzly and Sweat It Out.
