Tall Black Guy

From humble origins in Detroit, raised on a healthy diet of Motown, Jazz and early Hip Hop – Terrel Wallace (aka Tall Black Guy) has become a standard bearer for the current hip hop beats scene. Through a steady stream of productions filled with incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops, he has won fans across the world, including Gilles Peterson (who included him on one of his Brownswood Bubblers albums), Lefto, Anthony Valadez, Jazzy Jeff, J Rocc, Questlove and countless others. With the tangible beginnings of worldwide recognition, Tall Black Guy has established himself to be one of the most influential producers working today.

Sam Binga

Something's happening to the faster side of dance music. Maybe it's the hyperactive influence of juke's chopped-up 808s, the embrace of dubstep's half-time flow at a higher tempo or perhaps it's simply the ongoing evolution of the mutation started by dBridge and the Autonomic podcasts. Whatever the origin, that spectrum of music between 160 and 170bpm is sounding utterly vital once again.

Sam Binga has placed himself firmly at the centre of this new wave and raved about by everyone from Mark Pritchard to Alix Perez (check his Essential mix), Spectralsoul and DJ Die. All of which makes the swell of attention around Sam Binga more than mere hype – look at the tracklist for Kode9′s Rinse:22 mix CD to see just how far the interest is spreading.

If you're fully in the know, or if you pay attention to wider movements in the music world, you'll realise that there's some serious weight behind the Sam Binga name, with countless gigs and worldwide tours covering pretty much the whole spectrum of underground dance music under his belt. But that's not important right now: what's important is that mix of dirty-south swagger, Chi-town footwork and UK pressure people like Sam Binga are bringing to the table. Fresh, weird and strictly fire on the dance floor.
