|S.MAHARBA (IPSWICH, UK)
GUEST MIX FOR ANDREW MEZA'S BTS RADIO
Gritty beats, dusty jazz and haunting samples. S.Maharba is a sleeping giant.
Based out of England’s Eastern region in the city of Ipswich, S.Maharba has quietly been spawning tracks full of emotional power. An instrumental (most of the time) artist whose tracks go beyond anything that can just be called “beats”. Channeling the great trip-hop and downtempo producers of the mid ‘90s, S.Maharba creates infectious, deep, boom-bap instrumental tracks.
With top-notch sample choice, it’s also interesting to know that S.Maharba’s first musical groundwork was made in various hardcore metal bands. Bands which he played bass guitar, drums or any instrumental duties necessary. Even providing vocals if needed.
S.Maharba is ready to awaken. Last January, I crowned Letherette as the UK’s best kept secret, I didn’t realize how soon that title would have to be shared. Make way.
