When I spoke to Sheik about recording a mix for UKB, it couldn’t have been better timed. With exclusives to share, and a desire to express an experimental and techno edge that gets less air time than his grime side, this mix was the ideal outlet.
Coming in at just under an hour, with a big tracklist filled with his own impressive productions and tracks from the likes of Zed Bias and Theo Parrish, it’s quite something.
UKB027 captures everything that this mix series is about – diversity, quality and above all good music.
Based in London with releases on District Sound and Bumps, Sheik also find time to run his themed vinyl-only podcast series “SH!”, providing an opportunity for vinyl aficionados to share their fine collections online.
