Caught up with Fried friend Shookz about 2012 and what he and also his crew One Bomb had cooking for 2013:
DB: Gimme 5 D&B moments for 2012, sir!
1 DJ Hazard ‘It’s a Secret’, Playaz
2 Mampi Swift ‘Gangster’, Charge
3 Northern Lights – ‘All Night Long’ feat Bad Education, Audio Warfare
4 Devize & Shookz ‘Coming In Stealth’ feat Blu Bomma, Playaz
5 Mutated Forms ‘Look What You Have Done’, Deep Kut
DB: What goals do you have in mind for 2013 man?
S: In 2013 I’ll be mainly concentrating on the music which I’m producing. Trying to push forward my sound and get some quality releases out. Hopefully another Playaz release with Devize will be on the cards but look out for releases on Fokuz Recordings, 3D Mode, Pollution Records and of course my label Lighterworks. This year my label Lighterworks will be pushing out some nice releases from a few different names including the label’s first release of 2013 which will be from DJ Shuta.
Finally you’ll be able to catch me out and about in the clubs dropping some DJ sets, I’m already looking forward to this years festival gigs!
DB: What about the One Bomb in 2012?
S: 2012 was a great year for One Bomb with having our track ‘Take Over’ playlisted by 1xtra and going in to play a session for BBC Introducing.
2013 will be a year of hard work in the studio and out on the road. We’ll be in our favourite place for most of this year again: the studio! Getting more tracks finished and ready for playing out, then we’ll be picking our best tracks and putting together an album demo to send to a few labels.
We will be stepping up the live shows and doing a lot of gigs up and down the country, plus some good festival gigs to look forward to. Maybe a few more One Bomb DJ Sets as well, watch this space.
