LOW STOCK LEVEL
Hench Mixtape Vol. 1
"Having masterfully mixed the Hench Mixtape Vol. 1, Jakes introduces several of his unreleased works into the label showcase. Featuring VIP's of many of his previously released tracks, the mix offers something new even for the hardiest of Hench fans. Providing a platform for both established artists as well as those who are less familiar amongst the scene's heads -- one of the mix's defining accomplishments is the uniformity in standard of production. Komonazmuk has also made a stunning tune to lend to the mix ('You Fo''). Giant's hugely successful 'Swoosh' and a VIP of 'Drumstick,' along with VIP's of Eddie K's debut 12" on the label also feature. Tracks from the unmistakable Chasing Shadows and Lost are dropped into the mix, which will only add to the splash that these young producers are currently creating in the music scene. Expect to take notice of Hench's signing, Mensah -- currently the talk of Bristol after having his production featured in TV series CSI, and having productions lined up for future releases on Jakes' label. Tek-One has also been making a big impact, and Hench were lucky to pick up 'Broken String' -- surely a future classic. Young-gun producer Minus adds flavour to the mix with his debut release, 'Nails.' Hench Mixtape Vol. 1 provides an accurate snapshot of the accomplishments of Jakes and his label to date. With such established and rising stars cued to make further releases on the label, Hench will continue to remain at the forefront of the boundary pushing dubstep scene."
