SP:MC’s first break came after MC GQ heard one of his early mixtapes with DJ Jubei and made them resi- dents at his own monthly Emcee Sessions event at Dingwalls in Camden. Following that and as the MC of choice for Friction and dBridge he established close ties with Shogun Audio and Exit Records/Autonomic respectively. Throughout his career he has also represented for labels as diverse as Renegade Hardware, Commercial Suicide, Hospital, Prototype, Bassbin, Good Looking, Metalheadz, Valve, Quarantine, Digital Soundboy, Symmetry, Soul:R, Innerground, DNAudio, Tempa & 3024.
Versatility & quality control are a guarantee when SP’s in the building. He cites MC GQ, Dynamite & Con- rad as early influences. After multiple nominations at awards ceremonies throughout the early years of his career, including the Knowledge awards as well as BBC 1xtra and DNB Arena awards, SP:MC finally won the well deserved ‘best MC’ award at the DNB Arena awards in 2011.
If a diary bulging with gigs wasn’t enough, SP:MC began to produce tracks in 2005. Collaborations with Breakage set the standard, and after releasing his monstrous Dubstep track ‘Trust Nobody’, on the infamous Tempa imprint to widespread acclaim in 2008, 2009 brought forth ‘Code 3’ – a Drum and Bass trio consist- ing of long time friends SP, Jubei & Dakuan, and their debut 12” for Friction’s Shogun Ltd. Since 2009 SP:MC released 3 more highly rated and supported Dubstep 12”s on Tempa Recordings, 2 of these in collabora- tion with longtime friend and fellow MC LX:One, as well as a collaboration with Youngsta for Kryptic Minds ‘Osiris’ imprint. Code 3 have had further releases for dBridge’s ‘Exit Records’ and Kasra’s ‘Critical Record- ings’. SP:MC also provided guest vocals for a landmark tune on Icicle’s debut album for Shogun Audio. ‘Dreadnaught’ proved immensely popular and once again cemented SP:MC’s unique style.
2013 see’s this multi talented artist balancing his consistently hectic MC’ing schedule with perhaps his most substantial release to date, the ‘Declassified’ EP for Tempa which also features another collaboration with Youngsta. To add to a great year for SP:MC, he has yet another talent as part of his repertoire with DJ sets now being offered for selected events.
Innovative Drum and Bass & Dubstep MC, Producer, & now DJ, SP:MC is consistently leading the charge in each of his chosen musical expressions.
