Who still likes to get filthy to the sounds of UK dubstep? The Americanized version of dubstep just hardly does it for me these days, but the producers in the UK somehow still find ways to keep it fresh and especially heavy. Jakes, a pioneer in dubstep is still going strong and keeping the underground movements alive. If you’re unfamiliar with Jakes, give the quoted paragraph below a read (taken from Jakes bio) and get to know his past. Jakes has been on a decent roll the last few months, giving away a few tunes this year. In February, Jakes gave us “Goon Toon” (…read more and download here…) and earlier this month we got “Disruptive”, a truly massive tune (…read more and download here…).
Expect more of the same from Jakes on his new tune “Na Mate”. Filthy, gritty and dark all describe the Henchman’s newest tune. If you enjoy UK dubstep this is truly a treat. Listen and download below!
“Jakes is many things to many people, to some he is the voice of TC’s smash hits ‘Deep’, ‘Drink’ and ‘Mindkiller’, to others he is the Daddy of Bristolian Dubstep crew H.E.N.C.H and to musical historians he is one of the most interesting vocalists that underground British music can lay claim to. Never afraid to break from tradition and roll with his own flow, Jakes’ voice has become one of the most recognizable in the game and his energetic live performances see him traveling across the globe and smacking down raves from Bristol to Boston with his inimitable style. Within a few years, Jakes has gone from being one of the big name MCs of the drum and bass world to now being one of the most talked about Producers in Dubstep. In a very short space of time, the progression towards his now trademark style has been applauded by many – and not limited to the Dubstep scene.”
