Woolfman and JSTEW Cook Up a Casserole of Beats!

Urban nightlife has always heralded a heartfelt sanctuary for escapism and positivity. Such is the message from new transatlantic collaboration: Woolfman and JStew who urge all to shed their burdens and ‘Listen to the Beat’.

Woolfman and JStew

The Woolfman has been lurking in the shadows of the music scene for quite some time now. Not only had he turned down an offer to join The Cure during their early days, he was also advisor to Simply Red around the time of their release of ‘Fairground’ – the group’s only Number One. From a heritage of 90’s music and industry experience, Woolfman claims his creative insight for crafting tunes has come to him ‘’in dreams’’. Perhaps he never expected in the wildest of them where and how the roots of this genuine international collaboration would stem from.

The heritage from his intercontinental counterpart may lack the grandeur, but nothing in potential, and may prove to be the missing link in turning these dreams into reality. The pair bizarrely met on a trip to Eastern Europe and US Gospel singer JStew, who is also a pastor at his local church back in San Francisco, draws inspiration from heroic titans such as Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye arriving with a vision to make wonderfully vibrant and exciting music.

‘Listen to the Beat’ is a stomper of a dance track and is nothing short of vibrant. The project itself is one that seeks to progress as a mainstream brand evolving from a club base as a collaboration between producer and artist. Add in Steve Simpson at Concrete Promotions who played the vanilla version to ‘Mr E’ and come back with 2 special remixes of the track.

From this collaboration comes a mission to inject new life into what they perceive as a colourless tapestry of music today. JStew’s personal angle is one of gospel in his heart saying: “I believe my grounding in this vibrant style of music gives shape to my current style. I sing from my heart…” Through this comes transcendence through music, born from dreams. Distinguishably, Woolfman – one of the founding members of Gang of Four, was kicked out of the band for ‘’meditating in soundcheck’’.

Upcoming urban rapper, Scrilla, is releasing a new album under his own record label Scrills Monetary Records. Having been described as a “fantastic artist who is abstract in creativity” by Tom Simkins (BBC Introducing), it is no surprise that Scrilla is hotly tipped for success in the UK music scene this 2014.
New release, ‘Turn Me Up’, sees Scrilla showcase his refined song writing skills and musical arrangement to create an ideal club hit. The track embodies the whole vibe of the album, Bangers N Cash, which is filled with fun and upbeat, contemporary music. Produced by Elementree (Young Money, Young Capone, Cuban Linx), ‘Turn Me Up’ has a variety of Dubstep, dance and hip-hop influences to create a rhythmic fusion of chart beats worthy of acclaim.

Scrilla has played at various venues nationwide, gaining considerable media coverage from the likes of Capital FM and RAP City TV. However, his career highlights to date include a live performance at BBC introducing radio, playing to a 10,000 strong crowd at Gran Can Music Festival in Gran Canaria and of course, owning his own record label.
In order to keep his music fresh and unique, Scrilla likes to work with rising producers, engineers and collaborators who can bring innovative ideas and musical influences to keep the music new and exciting. This helps to avoid producing generic sounds that is hard to differentiate between artists and also pushes the boundaries of the urban genre to create something truly eclectic.
Scrilla’s love of music first developed in his early teenage years when his Mum paid for piano lessons, which ignited his desire to learn and produce music professionally. This progressed when he moved to Leicester forming friendships with fellow rappers who encouraged him to write his own material and master the craft.
The musical direction decided and perfected, Scrilla’s new album is a great example of how the talent he possesses has grown and tightened to produce something great.
