about

Our Whack Lack series is about artists creating their own battlewax record; with tunes designed to work in their own right, as well as giving scratch DJs and vocalists some new material to work with. The battlewax concept is to keep it simple yet effective, focusing on the right hook with the right beat and nothing more. By encouraging a variety of artists to work on the series, they can each find their own sound within it, and have a different outlet for their creativity that doesn’t revolve around the dance floor and mix-down tech.

For the fourth edition, we’re thrilled to have Simiah, a beats connoisseur and talented MPC instrumentalist! Currently residing in Bristol, UK, he has worked extensively with legendary UK label KingUnderground as a core part of their roster. Alongside an extensive back catalogue of inspired beat-smithery, he is a central player in The Phantom Ensemble and regular collaborator with fellow slug Chalky. This beat tape is sure to become your summer soundtrack in no time at all, and will no doubt inspire you to get stuck in to the rest of his discography.

↓↓↓ STORY TIME ↓↓↓

Denni sat in her dingy basement connecting up her new toys. She’d been building her record collection for years now, but had never thought about digging through it to build her own tracks. She’d managed to acquire an old sampler and drum machine and had selected a perfect sample - a short section of piano from the intro of an unlabelled jazz record. She dropped the needle on the record and recorded a few seconds in to the dusty machine, cutting it across her keyboard. Firing up a drum loop from earlier she jammed her new found vibe over the top. She sunk back in to her chair and grinned with satisfaction, she probably wouldn’t be seeing anybody for a couple of weeks...
