Growing up in the UK, Graeme Sinden ingested a steady diet of hip-hop, house, jungle and grime, influences which he chops up, reconfigures and then spits out in the form of fun dancefloor bangers with real personality. Sinden always has great collabos, working on twisted future garage with SBTRKT, grime tunes with 5kinandBone5 and sexy house with Brenmar, among many others. In this interview, Sinden takes us through his early days working with Made to Play’s Jesse Rose and Dave “Switch” Taylor (of Major Lazer and Solid Groove fame) and into the present, explaining the ethos behind his eclectic label Grizzly and his approach to DJing.
Check out below to stream the EPMD remixes from Sinden, frequent production partner Herve (a.k.a. The Count) and their buddy Duke Dumont. And if you like chunky, jacking house the way certain Brits are so good at making it, then check out a free compilation from Mr. Rose’s Made to Play label from us as well.
