SHUFFLE PRESENTS: NO UNIFORM AND BAD TASTE TAKEOVER W/ LIL SILVA + TERROR DANJAH
DOORS: 10:30 PM / PRICE: £5.00 / BOOKING FEE: £1.00 / AGE: 18+

So here we are about to hit the end of the student year! Shuffle has linked up with two of Sheffield’s best underground nights, No Uniform and Bad Taste! For this occasion they have put together a very special line-up featuring two of the best producer’s around at the moment!

21-year-old Lil Silva is fast becoming one of the most talked about artists on the UK Bass scene. Not only does he possess the musical understanding to work with genres such as American House, Funky and Grime but his ability also allows him to merge and blend styles. Silva’s flair manifests itself in his creative production techniques, showcasing a distinct sound which he looks to continually evolve. Always looking to shy away from convention, the young producer’s talents are becoming as renowned for their innovation as they are for the effect they are having on the scene. Prominent cultural magazine factmag.com has even gone as far as describing Lil Silva’s sound as ‘grime in disguise.’

Terror Danjah spent much of his early career running the Aftershock label, releasing what has gone on to become iconic Grime records from legends like D Double E, Skepta and Wiley, and playing a role in launching the careers of Kano, Tinie Tempah, Mz Bratt and countless others..

Not having enough time to make his own music, he decided to take some time out, and relaunch himself with a collection of his overlooked work while part of Aftershock entitled, ‘Gremlinz’ on Planet Mu in 2009. Kode 9, a long-time fan of Terror’s, and head of the legendary Hyperdub label, was excited to sign Terror Danjah as a solo artist with his debut single for the label ‘Acid’ in 2010, following with the well received Undeniable album later on in the year.”

Not satisfied with just being a respected member of Kode 9’s Hyperdub stable, which allowed him to do shows all over the UK, Europe and North America for the first time, Terror Danjah helped bring a young Elijah & Skilliam to the forefront of the Grime scene by being their first release on their then freshly minted Butterz label. Butterz has since gone from strength to strength under his close guidance, becoming the premier grime label in just over a year.

It was not long before Terror Danjah wanted a label venture again of his own to continue launching new names into the UK underground as he has always had a good ear for new talent. Hardrive Records’ stand-out track after a year in operation is produced by himself, with him bringing another new name into the fold in Ruby Lee Ryder. ‘Full Attention’ has been doing the rounds from Radio 1 to Rinse FM, and it has brought back DJs that have stayed away from Grime for years. With talent like D.O.K and Champion in the wings, they will be assaulting the Bass Music world for years to come.

Now with everybody’s full attention and working alongside Hyperdub & Butterz and the young producers from Hardrive, it is time to call Terror Danjah the Godfather of the reborn Grime scene.

Posted in Downloads Mixes on Tuesday 06th March, 2012 by Oli Marlow



Grime music isn’t exactly renowned for it’s subtlety. It’s overly hype, it’s a rush; but that’s precisely the point. In an interview that was published in the run up to the release of veteran grime producer Terror Danjah’s 2010 Undeniable album on Hyperdub he commented that he believed real grime music belongs in the club. Now thats something that you’ll probably have heard from a lot of writers and faces, but it’s most patently obvious when you listen to the music itself: the most powerful thing it has is its energy. 

Set around 140bpm - a tempo that is probably most famous for providing the headspace for dubstep producers to fill - grime is purposefully hyperactive. When a producer deploys snare drums that hit in flourishes, like a lot of grime makers do, it imposes movement on listeners and when that percussive shuffle motion is stamped out in such a prevalent manner it dominates and drives a track into you. It’s something that gets reflected in the way a lot of emcees ride the beats, positively attacking it and matching the pace of the percussion with their syllable placement. When you combine that unrelenting energy with synthesized textures, infamous MIDI horn sections and booming bass lines, you get something that’s purposefully made to get your blood pumping. Like this…



Terror Danjah himself has a heritage when it comes to grime music and he’s had a big part in crafting this super kinetic perception of it. Part of the Nasty Crew when it started out, home to people like Jammer, Kano and D Double E, he then begat the Aftershock camp and made a ton of instrumental music that would later be collated by the Planet Mu label on the Gremlinz album, which cited and connected his influence on a new generation of producers. With high profile releases through Kode9’s Hyperdub, Butterz and his own Hardrive label, Terror is continuing to stamp that trademark cackle of his on club nights across the globe, ensuring that people get to experience his music in the environment it was tailor made for.

Playing here on the 16th March as part of the first ever Hyperdub takeover of Room One (full line uphere), Terror has put together a 30 minute mix that manages to cram in a whole heap of new music from him and his associates. It personifies the animation and exertion of a grime rave and comes complete with several moments where you think you can hear something familiar (Brandy, Paul Johnson’s ‘Get Down’ or Mr Oizo’s ‘Flat Beat’) but before you second guess the DJ, it gets bastardized and re-cut into something new.

Terror Danjah started out as a Ragga Dj in the early 90’s in his early teens. So it’s only natural for him to return to his roots.

TERROR DANJAH & RUBY LEE RYDER
FULL ATTENTION
Format: 12” EP
Catalogue Number: HDR006
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Hardrive
Release Date: 15 August 2011

PRICE: £5.99
Full Attention
Terror Danjah finally returns to the airwaves with his first new material since 2010’s ‘Undeniable’ album on Hyperdub. The masssively-anticipated ‘Full Attention’ is the first step in the resurrection of his patented “Rhythm & Grime” sound, the style he made his name with in the early noughties with vocalists like Shola and Sade Ama. This time out, Ruby Lee Ryder is his voice of choice, and her distinctive vocal has already landed the track on the BBC 1xtra playlist, with further spins on Radio 1 and Rinse FM, and it’s a fixture in the boxes of DJs like Skream, Mistajam and Target. Advance club promo has generated a ridiculously positive response right across the board, with hard support from Brackles, Swindle, Alex Nut, Blackdown, Wylie, and many many more, setting the scene for ‘Full Attention’ to become an anthemic club and commercial hit as soon as it reaches the shops. On the flip Mr Danjah drops his trademark Gremlinz logo for two 8 bar grime smashes that have been doing the rounds on Rinse FM for the last half year. ‘East Village’ is a toast to the nights Hardrive label hosted at the London club of the same name, and ‘Jeckle & Hyde’ (exclusive to this 12”) has been battered in the raves by Logan Sama, Zomby, and Elijah & Skilliam just to name only a few. This marks the beginning of a hefty release schedule for the Grime Kingpin including more high-impact singles and remixes on the way for Greensleeves, Butterz and Hyperdub.

Here’s the Terror Danjah interview from http://www.thewickedbass.com/ in English

Also the audio of the show via mixcloud http://www.mixcloud.com/Noizar/wicked-bass-radioshow-terror-danjah-13042011/

explain us what is it all about grime nowadays? is it still a underground music? can you describe it’s popularity in UK comparing to dubstep?
Grime and Dubstep are siblings, they go hand in hand. Grime has a lot of the Mc’s in the national pop chart for example, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Chipmunk etc. But the Grime producers didn’t get the same success as the MC’s. Its only since Hyperdub, Planet Mu, Butterz & Hardrive are pushing the instrumental side of Grime.

what’s your behaviour to hip hop and house influences? is it necessary to make ‘hybrid’ music to be successful?
I think so, its always good to experiment, it keeps thing interesting.

few month passed since your last release with Joker so are you working on any remixes/EP’s/album at the moment?
Just released ‘Anger Management’ by Grime Don ‘P Jam’ on my imprint Hardrive, Also on my label Hardrive I’m releasing Funky and Bass Prince Champion’s ‘Motherboard EP’ which features club smash ‘Lose Control’. Also release Mz Bratt’s ‘Selecta’ remixes by ‘Bok Bok’ and ‘Royal T’ and also a free single download from ‘Lex NV’ at www.hardriverecords.net

do you know anything about grime producers outside UK? what’s the difference betwen them and native beat-makers?
There ain’t really any Grime producer that I’m aware outside the UK, they coin themselves Dubstep, for the obvious reason that Dubstep is more internationally know but I’m here to change that lol!

what do you like except of grime? your behaviour to juke/footwork?
I like Neo soul!

where did you get that cackle signature?
From a Jungle sample, I started using it as just a normal sfx, then when I stop using it, people said “wheres that laugh thingy gone, put back in your tracks”.

top-5 tracks in your current tracklist
1) East Village - Terror Danjah
2) Orangeade - Royal T
3) Missing Step - D.O.K
4) Lose Control - Champion
5) Mood Swings - Swindle

your favorite MC’s
D Double E

whom to watch in 2011? your experienced forecast for the scene. should we wait for the future/post-grime music and if yes what will it sound like?
I would say D.O.K, Royal T, P Jam, Champion, P Money, Ky Oshi, Elijah & Skilliam. I say the future of Grime is the Butterz and Hardrive label!

we will be much pleased if you come to Kiev with a dj set in a nearest future, by the way  have you ever been to Eastern Europe before?
I would definitely love to dj in Kiev. I have played in Eastern Europe, I’ve played at Kracow in Poland last year October at Unsound festival, also at Kapital Bass in Moscow, Russia

thanks a lot for this nice conversation, and for the last can you say a few words for our readers and fans of Terror Danjah? (t’ll be a big honour for everyone here if you write smth in cyrillc though it’s up to you :) )
Big Up at Wicked Bass, shout out to everyone whos heard, bought my music,and came to my dj sets and partied with me, much love. Check out www.hardriverecords.net for latest info and releases and www.terrordanjah.com

Cost /  Free

Yeah, Maybe
Grime//Garage//Bassline//2-Step//RnB//Rap//Dancehall

After last month’s mega marathon birthday session where we jammed until 6am and were joined by DJ Q & Eliphino as well as special guests Ronnie Herel and Sunship, we are back to a 3am finish. But that doesn’t mean it’s not gonna be another smash…

This month we welcome Grime don D.O.K. as well as Bassline king TRC. With D.O.K.’s remix of TRC’s OoAaEe being a regular banger at Yeah, Maybe we thought it only right to put these two on the bill together. As well as producing some big Grime & Bassline, TRC has been moving towards some 2-Step Garage vibes with one eye on the summer, which we are very excited about, and D.O.K. is gearing up for a release with Hyperdub which speaks for itself. Both have releases for our favourite Grime label Butterz, home to previous guests Royal-T & Swindle, so it’s a basic no brainer.

Of course residents Fife, Lex Darker and Colonel will be in full effect keeping heads and hips bumping.

Free as always, no ramping. Be there.

New creps? Yeah, Maybe
