JAKe Detonator - Requiem For Doom (Dinked)

JAKe Detonator
Requiem For Doom

Monday morning blues be gone! We are only too happy to have this record to start our week off the right way. And it’s Dinked Records who continue to grow their rep and give us what we need. Today’s forty-five is from Jake Detonator with his tribute to MF DOOM entitled ‘Requiem For Doom’. We completely love this track. A haunting boom bap beat with some clever samples that perfectly compliment the mood. JAke Detonator slays the track. If you aren’t familiar with this track, then please get familiar. The production on this track is bananas.

From Dinked Records
Dinked Records Releases JAKe Detonator’s debut hip hop single on wax with exclusive signed artwork.
JAKe Detonator’s first vinyl release is a double A-side 45 honouring the memory of the late rapper/ producer MF Doom with a hip hop funeral march, whilst the flipside evokes a more uplifting new day. Neck-snapping beats collide with vocal samples and scratches that sound like they were recorded in Lee Perry’s Black Ark… two epic slices of lo fi instrumental turntablism;
DJs will especially love cutting up doubles of the intro on Stoneferry Morning:

“In the beginning, there was a sound…”

JAKe Detonator is the acclaimed graphic artist whose work has adorned the packaging of The Prodigy, Jurassic 5’s Chali 2na & Krafty Kuts, Steinski, Prince Fatty, The Allergies, The Mighty Boosh and many more, as well as his Lucasfim work for Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

Now he swaps the drawing board for the mixing board after honing his sonic skills on remixes for likes of Chali & Krafty, Feral Five and The Notorious BIG producer The Love Theme. ‘I’ve been lucky with the remixes. The artists gave me freedom to really reinterpret their work, which was an amazing learning curve. And hanging around in the studio with acts that I’d designed the sleeves for, plus years illustrating for the likes of NME and Computer Music…In a way I’d absorbed a lot more than I thought. Being a comic artist, Doom’s passing hit hard, and this was my response’ As a Dj, JAKe has played sets supporting 6 Music’s Huey Morgan, Krafty Kuts, A Skillz and The Nextmen and is a member of the Super Sevens Collective. He has done vinyl mixes for The Allergies Podcast, and 45 Day.
