'Lose it' sees up-and-comer Sangy effortlessly lace a banging genre defying 138 BPM beat with his trademark hard hitting lyrics. The final track 'I'm Free' finishes the EP with a bouncy reggae beat and a conscious, uplifting vocal from Yemi Bolatiwa. Featuring the original don Kwasi Asante.

Jah Screechy is most famous for "Walk & Skank“, a UK dancehall classic originally conceptualised in the dancehall on Sir Lloyd Coxsone sound, where Screechy first toasted over 20 years ago. The original 1984 release 'Walk and Skank' was mixed by Peter Chemist on the Answer Riddim for Blacker Dread and has been remixed by various producers ever since, the most notorious being the 1992 smash from SL2 'On a Ragga Tip' released on XL records, an instant classic which achieved commercial success bringing the anthemic ‘Walk & Skank’ chorus to a worldwide audience. Right now Screechy is back on the scene working with Kris Kemist on some fresh material, including an EP to be released on Reality Shock Records. He is recently working with the Jahtari label and is featured on the 2LP „March Of The Gremlins“ by Naram with the hit tune „MC Magic“ and on the „Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 4“ with another big tune called „Love Me A Deal With“.

As a versatile vocalist with the stamina to survive both rave and reggae soundsystem shows, Jah Screechy stands shoulder to shoulder on the Reality Shock roster with the likes of Speng Bond and Solo Banton, described collectively by Kemist as 'a generation of artists who grew up around soundsystems & can toast lyrics all night long' Sangy: 'Manchester based Sangy has burst on the underground scene in the last year with his well received 'Paving the way' mix tape which showcases his quality on both 140s and hip hop. Since then he's been a big part of the exiting things happening at Room2 Records and with his next EP 'Introspection' set to drop in late 2014, Sangy is definitely one to watch!' 'Yemi Bolatiwa is a singer/songwriter born in London, brought up in the south and Manchester resident of 6 years. She doesn’t stick to one genre of music with the belief that most genres of music can be injected with a bit of soul. As lead singer of a soul/break beat/DnB band Pareidolia her influences vary from 90’s R’n’B to 70’s soul and motown and she writes lyrics for music from future garage to soulful house or reggae to D’n’B. Aaliyah, Erykah Badu Lauryn Hill and Brandy are her most prominent influences, but she singer is constantly growing, looking to collaborate and feature with more dj’s, musicians and producers having worked with Unit137 and MC Potent Whisper of the South London scenes. The most recent release with Dope Ammo Records is an example of the kind of collaborations she is embarking on, with more ambient bass releases set with MCR based producer FREnchFire.'
