BigDeann’s #GrimeyMondays Interviews (Series 2) – with Teeza! Part 1

(Graphic image of Teeza)

You and S-X featured on ‘the Leak EP 2’ by the big man TRC. With TRC being from brum, how did this perfect link up all come about?

I was familiar with some of his previous music, from around 2010/11 and over time I was hearing more of his work. So, i found him on twitter, followed him on there, and as far as i can remember he followed back and we began talking from there via twitter then on the phone etc. We made the connection, built a pretty good relationship so when it was time for the EP, he gave me a shout and wanted me involved. Thats the good thing about twitter, networking can be made so easy (most of the time)

I’ve noticed you tamper around with your sound frequently, you can go from making a synth hip hop riddim, to that hype hard hitting Grime ‘wheel up’ music. Would you say remaining versatile an consistent is the way to gain such recognition like yourself?

I’ve always had an eclectic taste in music from a young age so thats where it all began for me really. When I make music, a lot of the time I go off a mood/energy, so different genres or BPMs give me the freedom to express that feeling and catch the vibe. Plus, doing the same old shit over and over just becomes monotonous for me personally.

biggest tune your feeling right now? (Grime, garage, bassline, hip hop, funky)

Off top right now, because i was just listening to and i do like it a lot, ill say Hudson Mohawke – ‘Chimes.’ The riddim is bananas!

You recently made a tune with the infamous ‘Hitman Hyper’. will we be hearing any other collabs such as this soon?

If all goes according to plan then definitely. Me and Hyper having have spoken over the phone and discussed doing more work in future and I have a few other vocal bits lined up. All will be revealed soon enough.

Neon Beats – The Attack EP! (Out 1st October)

(The Attack release cover)

Im over the moon to Announce that ‘Neon Beats – The Attack EP’ is out on the 1st of October, on Plain Face Records! Proud of the teams head honcho keeping his work in music priority as always and delivering some firey remix’s from the likes of Moony and Trends.

without gassing up Neon’s release too much, ill keep it short and sweet… This EP is sounding nuts so go and buy that digitally as soon as its released so that you can witness it first hand!

I Hope you enjoy the release when it comes out,
Keep it Mixclique.

The Blog is Back on Track!

Mixclique apologises about how shoddy the blog has been recently, we all had a break from music for a few weeks, as we all had different stuff keeping us busy outside of music e.g DJ Ethic is in the process of moving house and BigDeann & Neon Beats are working mad shifts at their jobs.

Not to fear though myself @BigDeann will be updating the blog regularly again back to normal and expect new guest mix’s, plus the return of the producer Interviews. We look forward to the rest of 2012 for Mixclique as we hope you do to, because there is much more in the pipeline for us yet to come.

Thank You!

BigDeann – Yellow Diamonds EP + Interview/Insight

(@BigDeann – Yellow Diamonds EP)

Sooooooo, Some of you may be confused as to why me (BigDeann), a blogger is releasing an EP, so let me enlighten you for a minute Grime heads.

How did BigDeann come about creating Refix’s/Bootleg’s/Myth’s?

Basically a few month’s back i made a bootleg of a Preditah tune entitled ‘Nosy Parker’ which was a very popular tune by him as im sure many of you know already. So i sent it to non other than Grime veteran and good music friend of mine Spooky Bizzle, to let me know what he thought of the standard and if it was good and he was quite happy with what i made (it was a little bit sketch in places, but it was not finished anyway). So happy infact he wanted to use the main 8 bar of it, while he made an 8 bar refix aswell and he also gave Mixclique family member ‘Neon Beats’ a shout for an 8 bar by him on top of that to create a collab refix. BUT it didn’t end up happening for 1 or 2 reasons and i left just him and Neon to murk it on their own as they know more than me in music.(true story lol)

Why ‘Yellow Diamonds EP’? Whats the story behind the name?

Well, this is a kinda lame story so try not to fall asleep while im telling it.
Basically for about a week, every day, through out the day i would find myself singing as i was going about my business the same verse from a Rihanna song called ‘We found love’. The part of the song that i kept on saying was simply just “Yellow Diamonds in the sky..” and at the time i was racking my head thinking about a name for the EP, but it hadn’t clicked at this point as i was busy and stressed with work, as i work LONG shifts. So when i found myself i sat down and just thought ‘I really want to sample that Rihanna verse’  so then i slaved my way through the internet for a couple hours just for an HQ acapella to cut it from, finally got it, cut it and then added some effects but didn’t know what to do with it.

So left it a week come back to it and just  messed around with it together with some MAD bootleg i’ve made of about 6 tunes all in one (now called Yellow Diamonds) it just seemed to work easily and the process was 100% natural which just made it a pleasure building the tune.

So, is it just you who will be on the release then?

The EP is primarily ‘Deann’ (4/5 bootlegged Tracks) but their will be 2 or 3 features on the release by different artists that will be an assortment between Remix’s, Original’s or Bootleg’s, as i told the artist that artists that are featuring that they can do anything with the tune they want to put on there and all they have to do is incorporate the ‘Yellow Diamonds’ sample a couple times in it and their is no issues. So expect an EP with a peculiar, yet original concept upon release day.

Not going to say who the features are yet, can’t be spoiling all the fun now can i?!

Release Date?  

The EP will be release in the next 1 or 2 months if all goes according to plan with the other artists featuring. The plan is for it to be out before the end of September 1000% no later and that’s a guarantee.

 What Genre’s of music can we expect to hear on the release?

Straight Grime but there may be room for another genre to poke it’s head into the release, as the track list can change at any time before release if i feel it’s appropriate. If i was to bring any other Genres into it, you could expect Garage, Dubstep or maybe even some Weight hip-hop Riddim.. like i say its all open for me to mold around my preferences.
