This week I invited Merouac (of South London’s District Sound label), a very talented producer from Leeds, to record the next UKB podcast and stray into grime territory, relatively unexplored from the podcast perspective.

With a tracklist stuffed full of his own unreleased and forthcoming tracks I was excited to take a listen having been really impressed by his productions and recently recorded mixes.

Speaking with Merouac about the mix, he explained: “the tracklist is mainly mine and my friends and label fam stuff (District Sound)- Tony Phorse, LTHL, Smodi and a couple I reached out to people for.”

“There are also a couple from a compilation Tony Phorse and I are putting together called AFKA vol.1, but more on that another time…”

Counting myself as a pretty big fan of his work now, I was eager to find out what else was coming production wise.

“I’m involved in a few compilations via indecentldn.co.uk, Classical Trax and Moas collective. Also “Frost” is out now via Distrct Sound on their Artist Sampler vol. 3.”

“As for my own releases I have Maneki Neko E.P. via District Sound coming out early next year and I’ll be putting out the ‘Solo’ E.P./L.P. under my own AFKA imprint around the same time. A couple more things TBC too!”

Exciting stuff, I’d urge you to check out his work. Having been unaware of the tracklist when I first sat down to listen to this podcast, I was really impressed by his stuff, especially when I saw that the majority of the tracks are his own, or remixes. The first few tracks are bang on.

More from Merouac and District Sound at the usual places:
