Following on from his stellar debut release of the ‘Alone’ EP, Jordon Alexander, aka Mall Grab, shot to notoriety online via his YouTube hit ‘Can’t (Get U Outta My Mind)’, a rework of Mala’s dubstep classic ‘Alicia’, sampling the soothing vocals of Alicia Keys. In a subsequent string of polished 12” releases, including the release of the acclaimed ‘Elegy’ on Vancouver-based label 1080p, his sample-heavy style, which manages to remain melodic and emotionally textured, whilst maintaining a raw style with classy drum programming to ensure it packs some punch, has marked him out as an up-and-coming producer to keep an eye on. We sat down with him to Take 5.
“This is just one of my favourite tracks and has been for a while. Repetition is hard to do well, and dj watever does just that”
2. Darnum Samp – LOVESCAPE
“Darnum Samp rule. So much good stuff coming from these guys and this track is no exception. I can listen to this any time of day and it will always put me in a good mood.”
“If you’ve seen me play in the last few weeks you would’ve heard me playing this. Perfect DM grittiness.”
“My copy of this record is in terrible condition but it still sounds incredible any time I play it out. Only downside is that it’s about 3min long.”
