Mixpak FM 061 is brought to you by Glasgow producer, Inkke. With only one official release under his belt - 'L.O.K' for Ninja Tune's Grime 2.0 compilation - Inkke has already made a name for himself as part of the current instrumental grime 'renaissance' in the UK. Whether he's channeling the ghost of Eski, creating a head-turning war dub, or refixing Nelly, Inkke is constantly pushing the genre's hyperactive syncopation to new and experimental places. With both an EP for Local Action and a beat tape (as in cassette) for Astral Black due early next year, he'll be a grime producer to watch for in 2014.
His Mixpak FM is an interesting ride through what seems to be influences from the UK and international underground - from archive Roll Deep to new grime contemporaries Logos and Strict Face, afrobeats to RnB refixes, and of course many of his own unreleased productions.
