Sheffield based hip hop duo, Trellion, co-founder of Bad Taste Records alongside Sniff, have both done their fair share of collaborations but are mostly self-produced. True pioneers of UK hip hop, their music is described as the feeling of “suddenly finding yourself in a badly lit back room in Sheffield surrounded by slang spitting people smoking barbiturates and listening to Heltah Skeltah and Cypress Hill”. Get to know:
-Last Japan (Signal Life / NTS Radio)
South London soundboy Last Japan has been representing the low-end spectrum for some time now. He’s always been one of those characters who has immersed himself in bass-heavy music, crafting tracks that pull influence from grime, dubstep, jungle and percussive Hessle Audio-style house. With releases on Signal Life, LNUK and Four40, he’s garnered a strong reputation, reenforced by his most recent mixtape “Ride With Us”.
- Akito (Sub Skank / Sans Absence)
