In the world of drum & bass, the humble MC is so often overlooked. So when our good friend & resident Jaye ‘Siege MC’ Balmer told us that he was keen to do a solo EP on the imprint, we simply couldn’t resist. The Bristolian wordsmith has assembled a glittering selection of producers and fellow unsung heroes to grace his first 4-track project, which we’re hugely excited to home.
Intentions ft. Jessie Bowden (produced by Echo B aka Colby Brown) starts off the EP with incredibly crisp, high energy drums and a deceptively catchy hook laying the foundation for some of Siege’s best writing yet. The title track gives us an insight into the trials and tribulations of a drum & bass MC.
Heathens ft. Visionobi (produced by Curricula) sees Siege join forces with the Rogue Jedi, Visionobi, to let their souls’ vent some deep and thought-provoking verses that meander through the eerie atmospherics and haunting vocal samples laid down by lesser known UK born, NZ based producer Curricula.
Champagne & Battle Scars ft. MC Fava (produced by Hiraeth) more of liquid DnB’s household names feature here to provide some sun drenched, feel-good vibes that will certainly get some air time at festivals. MC Fava complements Siege brilliantly, reminding us whatever life brings us, drum & bass can heal even the deepest wounds.
Overdue (produced by Hiraeth) has a title befitting the release of a 4 track EP from Siege MC. Rounding out the EP with a silky liquid roller, Siege invites us to settle down to his approach on living the music lifestyle over a dreamy, piano laden tune produced by up and coming producer Hiraeth.
