Wrongtom Releases New Compilation Double LP MEETS... Out Today Via Tru Thoughts
Producer, DJ and reggae mastermind Wrongtom continues the legacy of his legendary 'Wrongtom Meets...' series, with the double digital LP Meets... out today on Tru Thoughts. The compilation showcases a cohesive and curated anthology of his finest original material and remixes to date, alongside a handpicked selection of some of his favorite artists to have remixed him.
The 'Wrongtom Meets...' blueprint begun with a remix back in 2005. Gaining momentum, the project exploded onto the scene when Wrongtom was handed a catalogue of music from national treasure and titan of Black British music,Roots Manuva, for a radical makeover. These pivotal remixes would eventually evolve into the Duppy Writer LP. In Wrongtom's own words, "Wrongtom Meets is all about finding artists and material with reggae in their DNA... . If I can hear something potentially skanky going on in the original track, I'll rip it apart and rebuild it with a reggaefied rhythm track".
Producing over a staggering 250 remixes throughout his career, Meets... showcases Wrongtom's original material with the likes of The Ragga Twins, Deemas J and Tippa Irie, whilst firmly keeping his legendary remixes at the heart of the project. 'Meets...' includes tracks that have gone under the radar, been lost in the ether and some that are being release for the first time, shedding a light on Wrongtom's extensive catalogue, mixed with some dub-heavy fresh new sounds.
A prolific remixer, Wrongtom explains his delicate art that has played such an important part of his career and growth as an artist; "I don't really think of my remixes as remixes. I've always approached them like they're a track in their own right." He continues, "Dub turned the producer into an artist, and that's what I've been channelling ever since".
With high praises throughout his career from Julie Adenuga (Beats1), Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 Music), Toddla T (BBC Radio 1), and glowing support from MOJO, Q, Mixmag, CLASH, NME, and more; Wrongtom is kept busy performing DJ sets across the country and be continually developing his live sound.
