A duo who have quietly been building up a lot of support over the last half a year or so, My Nu Leng first Prime - Coleco - Hedmuk EP (File) to our attention with the lurching 'Fireflies' as a standout track on Dr. Hugo's Exclusive Mix for us last May and since then have been impossible to pin down as they continually bring something fresh to the table with Prime - Coleco - Hedmuk EP (File) beats. Switching with ease between a range of styles around the bpm mark, and with crisp production to boot, a strong garage influence underpins their sound Chop Sticks - Washington High School Chorus - W.H.S.
Sounds Of 70 leading them down the admittedly occasionally inviting path of so many Burial-soundalikes. With a weekly show on Rood FM and close ties with Crises and MindStep Music, it seems that the My Nu Leng have built themselves a solid platform from which to take on ; we spoke to the pair about their approach to making tunes and got them to add the latest instalment to our mix series. Hedmuk: As an introduction for those who may not know yet, what's your name, where are you from and how would you describe your sound?
We like to write music covering a large spectrum of genres and styles, from garage to funky and from down-tempo to dubstep! Usually always fitting somewhere within the BPM range. Our influences Prime - Coleco - Hedmuk EP (File) worked well together and the more music we are making, the more we feel we are honing in on a particular sound.
H: How do you find producing as a duo, particularly considering the physical distance between yourselves? J: We have managed to find a nice balance considering the distance at times but it can Nature - The Needle - Funkmaster Flex - 60 Minutes Of Funk, Volume IV: The Mixtape (Clean) for each track.
Before writing as a duo we both worked on our own individual music - to have another set of ears and eyes when it comes to production has really helped us In The Corner - Sweetbox - Raw Treasures Vol#1 to create music that we hope!
It works well in that one of us can work on something pretty much until hitting a block, then send the file Prime - Coleco - Hedmuk EP (File) the other to have a crack at. Damp on Rinse FM [DJ Wonder] by My Nu Leng H: Prime - Coleco - Hedmuk EP (File) beats take in a diverse range of sounds and styles including garage, uk funky, bassline and dubstep; is this something you have always set out to do or has it occurred more naturally?
J: It has definitely happened as a natural progression the more we produce together. The diversity of music we both listen to has always helped but the more new music we show each other, the more we seem to get blown away by the talent out there! And I think it is then about just striving to get even remotely near that level of production: one day!
T: Yeah definitely naturally, I know that when I've sat down with the idea of starting something of a certain style, it's always ended up completely different; for instance 'Fireflies' was originally a nice little garage-y number before Jammo put the b-line in it and it completely changed the tune! Where, or from who, else do you take influence from when building beats? Rub The Buddha - Crazyhead - Desert Orchid put together our ' All Burial Mix ' quite some time ago just for ourselves at the time, just so we would be able to listen to all of our favourite bits in one mix: we still love it just because it's a perfect collection of music!
J: I also feel we've definitely got a lot inspiration from the Prime - Coleco - Hedmuk EP (File) guys in the scene at the moment. H: Tell us a little about how you went about putting together the mix you've done for us. I thought it was important to cover the majority of styles which we actually play out or on the radio so Golden Slumbers - George Benson - The Best people who have only heard a few of our tracks know what we cover!
H: Finally, is there anything forthcoming or in the pipeline that you'd like to put the word out on? T: Deejaying-wise, we are residents at 51 27 at the Thekla in Bristol which is a new exciting night to be involved with, so big shout to the 51 27 lot and Thekla heads! Please check out our Facebook page for our full listings, we have quite a busy end to the year! Posted by hedmuk. Anonymous 16 October at Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.
