Juttla Interview [Exclusive]

• March 26, 2010 • Comments (2)
HHK: Thanks for speaking with us Juttla. The big news that a forthcoming collaborative E.P called “The Forbidden Temple” is close to release. How did the initial discussion start?
Juttla: Hi Ryan, first off thanks for having me! LOL! I released my last album ‘At War With Satan’ in the autumn of 2008. It was a Dubstep album and the response was really good. After working closely with Wolftown Recordings for the past ten years on various projects, myself and Tricksta talked about the possibility of doing a project that would see me collaborate with their latest signing who was Manny Moscow. I had been a fan of Moscow’s from hearing the UK Runnings mixtapes that Tricksta was doing with him and I really felt his flow, delivery, vibe and skills on the mic! Tricksta approached Manny with the idea of doing a track and then it escalated into a five track EP.
HHK: What was it like working with Manny Moscow?
When I released my Hip-Hop album ‘Bass, Kicks, Snares, Spits’ on Wolftown Recordings in 2005, I did find it a little stressful. Working with all those different international artists meant that there was a lot of waiting around, especially on the posse tracks. Being to totally honest, the longness of some the acts actually put me off working with rappers!
When I sent Moscow the first instrumental I expected it to take maybe a few weeks or a month tops, so when I sent the track over and got the vocals back the next day I was totally amazed. He had written the song and recorded all the vocals in 24 hours. This showed me that Manny Moscow was professional, serious, fast, motivated, dedicated and definitely on his grind, all the qualities that I admire in an artist. Manny wrote the whole EP and recorded it all in 7 days. (Big up Manny!)
HHK: It’s not the first E.P we’ve seen from a producer / artist this year. We’ve seen Endemic and Cappo release ‘The Needle Drop EO’ and Genesis Elijah and Beezwax release “Civil Unrest”. Do you expect to see more of this format of music and what advantages does it give to the U.K Hip-Hop scene?
Juttla: Yeh I think we will see more of these kind of projects for a few reasons. One I think on an EP it’s different to an album, I think it gives you the opportunity to work with an artist that you might not necessary produce a whole album for. You can experiment a little more, try new ides, and merge styles and genres together to bring something fresh. I do think this happen a lot more, and is actually happening already with people like Niosa and Foreign Beggars recently collaborating. It keeps the UK moving, we’ve always delivered fresh upfront exciting sounds and hopefully we can continue to do this.
HHK: The lead single 1KG caused a bit of a stir with the industry and fans alike. Who had the initial idea for the concept of the track? And what properties does the track have that make it single worthy?
As with all the tracks on the EP, I sent Moscow the instrumentals and I didn’t want to cloud his creativity by commanding that a certain beat should be about a certain thing. All I wanted with ‘1KG’ was a dancefloor track that really hyped the crowd in a club. I called the beat ‘1KG’ as I had to call the beat something when I saved the Logic Pro 9 file and I just happened to call it ‘1KG’ (which happens to be weight of my testicles! LOL). Moscow just took that title and ran with it! What makes it single worthy for me is that massive infectious hook, ‘it’s very heavy, its 1kg’, even now I can’t stop singing it! It’s catchy and a lot of DJ’s globally have supported this track, so thanks to everyone who has supported ‘1KG’.
HHK: The music has been used for educational purposes. That’s quite an achievement considering the genre that we work within. How did you manage to agree this? And what information can you tell us about this?
Juttla: Tricksta was roped into doing some music industry talks for a Wolverhampton Arts & Music Collage (Big up Tricksta doing his bit for the youth!). The college was recording an anti-gun, anti-violence, anti-knife educational film and they wanted to use ‘1KG’ for a scene where some music was playing in a car. When Tricksta approached me about it I was obviously humbled and honoured to be part of such a needy and positive cause. There is a gun, knife and violence problem in the UK and projects like this can only help, so even now I am glad this happened and glad to be a part of the project.
HHK: Aside from promoting the new E.P what are your other plans for the rest of the year?
Juttla: I’m so glad you asked me that question, as it gives me space to shamelessly promote myself and everything I’m doing (sorry bruv)! Right first up ‘The Forbidden Temple EP’ with Manny Moscow drops in May on iTunes, I have just done two remixes of the Disablists feat Foreign Beggars ‘Heavy Rotation’, as well as working on my new EP which will be called ‘Verbal Dubstep’ and feature various artists from all over the UK.
I have also just started an on-line magazine called Electronic Taals which will focus on promoting Asian electronic music from all over the world. Eventually this will also be a compilation series of releases featuring the cream from the Asian electronic music scene. I am also stepping things up with my label Eastern Pressure and will be releasing the ‘Joyrider EP’ from a very talented Midlands based producer called Charged. 2010 is going to a busy a year.
HHK: What are the best websites where fans can keep up to date with your music?
Juttla: Well it’s quite funny, the other day I Googled Juttla and there were 117,000 pages with my name on! I know Park Street Promotions are good but come on Tricky I aint giving you all the credit for all that! LOL hahahaha!!!!! Yeh the can find me easily through most sites and networking sites as well as my website. Here are direct links:

HHK: Is there anything else you’d like to add to the interview?
Juttla: First up I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Manny Moscow for all his hard work, support and belief to collaborate in a project with me. Watch out for his new mixtape ‘Blood On Ice’ with UK Runnings coming soon it features a brand new Juttla produced Hip-Hop track called ‘Restless’. Also thanks to everyone who supports and buys my music, you are the reason I keep going, and also a massive thanks to Tricksta and Park Street Promotions for constantly helping to promote and help Juttla moving forward. Also a massive thanks to you Ryan for giving independent artists like myself a chance to talk about what I’m up to and to promote my new release.
HHK: Thanks again for speaking to Hip-Hop Kings. Good luck for the release of “The Forbidden Temple E.P” and keep in touch!
Juttla: Thanks for positive energy and hopefully we can talk again when I release my next EP. Thanks again Ryan… see ya!

HHK: Thanks for speaking with us Juttla. The big news that a forthcoming collaborative E.P called “The Forbidden Temple” is close to release. How did the initial discussion start?
