Shox is probably a familiar name to you if you listen to or follow Rinse FM. He hosts the Monday morning show from 11am – 2pm where he showcases his musical tastes to the world, but outside from this public forum, he’s committed himself to pushing new and interesting music by starting his own Hundred2ONE label, on which he’s so far put out three of his own solo releases, back in December of 2010. Having caught the ear of fellow Rinse FM staple Roska, who enlisted his production skills for a couple of remixes for his Kicks & Snares label, Shox is almost upon the eve of releasing his first four track EP through RK&S.
Described by Roska’s label as “straight up 4/4 pounders with an emphasis on deep growling bass” it marks something of a recognition for Shox whose tracks incorporate aspects of his musical listening and what he does in his DJ sets, making them four dancefloor aware numbers that segue and mix fluidly. Consequently Shox will be joining Roska and co. for the latest RKS Room Three takeover on the 23rd March, a fact that he chose to mark by putting together this hour long mix for your listening pleasure.
