Mixpak is proud to announce the “Jumeirah Riddim EP,” a brand new release from Sticky which is out today on iTunes and via the Mixpak Store. The EP showcases Sticky’s undeniable “Jumeirah Riddim” which represents his recent embrace of UK Funky and has been an underground hit in the UK for some months. Once we signed the track, we called up rising Jamaican star Natalie Storm for a voicing and she delivered a catchy bashment/funky monster, “Look Pon Me” (stay tuned for the video dropping early next week). JA vocals in hand we went back to the UK and got bassline mastermind Dexplicit to rework the track into an uptempo, heavy bass epic. Finally, Sticky rounded it out, revisiting the original and flipping it for the “Jumeirah Riddim Sequel.”
If you’re not familiar with Sticky, he built his reputation as one of the United Kingdom’s leading club music producers at the height of the UK Garage scene. His productions not only kept the clubs on lock, but they also launched the careers of a number of the UK talents including the Mercury Award winning Ms. Dynamite. Sticky has re-emerged on the scene in 2009 and the “Jumeirah Riddim” is his biggest statement yet.
The EP features original cover art by renowned artist Devin Flynn, creator of animated show “Ya’ll So Stupid” (check for it on adultswim.com) and bassist for DFA band Pixeltan.
