Skepta produces new garage track

BEHIND THE DESK: Skepta produces track for Jaykae and Murkage Dave

BRINGING AN old school garage-inspired sound for the last of the summer months, Birmingham hip-hop artist Jaykae and east London DJ Murkage Dave have released their new Skepta-produced track, Every Country, which premiered on MistaJam’s 1Xtra show earlier this month.

The track came together after the pair previously collaborated on the Tonga record, CCTV, last year. The must-see visual was directed by Luke Sparrowhawk of Birmingham’s P110 Media and was shot in Paris, where Murkage Dave had been working on music, bringing to life the hope of having a ‘peng ting in every country’.

TEAMWORK: Jaykae and Murkage Dave

On the track, Jaykae said:

“I was in the studio with Skepta last year and he played me an instrumental which I instantly gravitated to.

“With its garage vibe and Mike Skinner-esque influence, I thought it was only right to reach out to Murkage Dave. It has the feel of summer 2002 with a summer of 2017 sound.”
