Northerner Mark Jenkyns is back onboard the Hot Creations imprint, this time featuring vocalist MC Chickaboo. 12 Stories and Skream are on remix duty for their debut on the label.
“I was always a fan of Chickaboo’s work and style, which dates back to the track she did with Timo Mass ‘Shifter’, and the Ewan Pearson remix of ‘Freak’. So I decided to track her down, which became a game of cat and mouse for a few months. Eventually after agreeing to meet me, we had a shandy on brick lane and sorted it! One week later we recorded the vocals in Jamie’s studio and the rest is history.” – Mark Jenkyns
