David Kennedyâ€™s work as Pearson Sound & Ramadanman has been a positive scourge on the airwaves this past year. His current deviation from any kind of conventional â€˜dubstepâ€™ template hasnâ€™t come as a shock for anyone whoâ€™s been following his career from the start - heâ€™s always had a particular slant and a percussively textured style all of his own thatâ€™s often
layered with thick and potent bass frequencies and synth washes - but it seems like with recent material like â€˜Work Themâ€™ (released on Loefahâ€™s Swamp81 imprint) Kennedy is simply toying with the worldâ€™s expectations of him.
As a key component behind some of the most daring dancefloor music released in the last year, both as a producer and as a label owner â€“ Kennedy co-runs the Hessle Audio imprint, alongside Pangaea and Ben UFO - heâ€™s travelled the world numerous times over releasing music by key producers like Joe, Elgato and James Blake as heâ€™s done it.
When other children were playing combat with G.I. Joe action figures in the early 80â€™s, Detroit native Marcellus â€œMalikâ€ Pittman was playing his radio at maximum volume, listening to the sounds of â€œthe Wizardâ€ and the â€œElectrifying Mojoâ€, in addition to the jazz outputs of Rosetta Hines.
Malik began his DJ pursuits for college parties, wedding receptions, â€œold school partiesâ€ in the early 90â€™s. In 1993, Malik released his initial work of production with local Hip-Hop collective â€œHome Grownâ€. Shortly thereafter, he released â€œEssential Selections, Vol. 1â€ on the Sound Signature label, headed by Theo Parrish. In 1998, Malik forged a working relationship with Rick Wilhite, Theo
Parrish and Kenny â€œMoodymannâ€ Dixon, collectively known as the 3 Chairs. As production artists and selectors, they have helped to define an integral part of the Detroit sound. Malikâ€™s sound has been around the Detroit and surrounding areas, as well as internationally, spanning Canada, the UK, Germany, Japan and Paris.
Pariah is 22 year old producer Arthur Cayzer. Originally from Scotland, Arthur is now based in London where he studies at university. Having always been hugely passionate about music, at the beginning of 2009 he made his first steps into production and DJ'ing.
2010 saw the release of his debut 10" single "Detroit Falls/Orpheus" on the newly revitalised label, R&S, to which he is signed. That was followed up a few months later with a 6 track EP entitled "Safehouses". Arthur has a number of releases planned for the year, including a collaborative EP with fellow producer Blawan. He has also begun work on his debut album
which will come out at some point on R&S in the not too distant future."
