Preditah (FABRICLIVE 92)
I was born in Birmingham, England. My childhood was quite normal. I was into football, drawing and playing out with my local friends.
In my family I am the eldest sibling. My mom used to play music in the house all the time growing up whilst she was sewing and making clothes. That varied from R&B to Reggae but it was mainly Gospel music that she played, especially on a Sunday. My early musical interests came from those genres. I remember staying at a relatives house and my older cousin was blasting Garage music. Tracks from So Solid, DJ Zinc and the like - that’s when I found the sound my ears had been yearning for! I remember my mom buying me a radio shortly after that. I used to tune into the local pirate radio stations and tune in late at night just to hear more of this Garage sound that I was exposed to at my relatives house. I fell in love with it because although I liked Gospel and R&B music, this Garage stuff I was hearing appealed to my youth. It made me feel like a Bad Boy and it made me feel cool, haha!
Like I previously said, I listened to Garage music mainly and I heard it transform from Garage into Eski-Beat and then into Grime. The first record/vinyl I bought was Golly Gosh by Sticky. The first album I bought was Wiley’s Treddin’ on Thin Ice.
"I literally make music for the club because that’s where music matters the most." - Preditah
Once I started producing music, I made tracks for all the local MC’s in my area and eventually, I ended up producing tracks for people all across Birmingham. Those tracks made me a house hold name from ages ago within Birmingham.
I went to school, college and even University because that’s the standard route to do in society and I was studying to become an Interior Architect at once stage but I always knew deep down that Music was my love. In saying that, I didn’t know it would become my full time career and that I would eventually live off solely music money. It’s crazy but that alone gives me faith to keep going!
LABELS & PRODUCTION:
The list is long! I have produced, composed & remixed allot of music for various artists and labels over the past few years.
My first gig at fabric was back in 2012 for a night called ‘Roska Presents’ by Roska. I played in Room Two and I’ll never forget that night! I’ve also been to fabric as a raver a few times and those nights were special because at the time, I didn’t know I’d end up DJing there in the near future, let alone doing a FBRICLIVE CD and holding a night for it too! fabric is without a doubt one of the best clubs in the UU simply because the people that attend don’t go there to ‘snapchat’ and document. They go there to RAVE!
I recorded this mix in my Home. One take, haha! I chose each track carefully and I have a relationship with everyone I have featured in this mix. A personal favourite is ‘Up On You’ by Black Loops. I heard that track back in 2014 and it blew my mind. It reminded me of old school 4x4/Garage that I grew up listening to as a kid so I’m happy that they’ve given me the thumbs up to use it for this CD. It’s my way of spreading their unique House sound that I love.
The future is bright, the future is Circles Recordings! The future for me is about continuing to push music from my label Circles Recordings I want to keep traveling the world playing Grime and Garage music to the masses but most importantly, I want to keep putting out Quality music for my fans and others to enjoy in the Clubs. I literally make music for the club because that’s where music matters the most.
