BPM: Yes King, tell us the story behind this EP. How did your collab with Jah Mirikle start and what can we expect in the future?

KY: A friend of mine showed me the video of Jah Mirikle and Rodney P's "Live up" single and instantly i got in touch as i was feeling his vocal and sent him the instrumental of Warrior charge, The rest is history... as for future plans i have my third E.P all ready to go on Sub Slayer's + my remix for Mr Benn & Serocee should be out very soon on Nice Up records

Badman at teh controlz like KING YOOF!

BPM: How were the remixers chosen? I think you nailed it, the whole package feels comfortably complete!

KY: Haha it was pretty easy...Hellfire machina is a dubstep outfit which my brother has been part of for some time over in the U.S.A, Dj Gold is a producer ive been rating for sometime and i discovered him for Sub Slayer's a while ago and finally Shut up and dance are very old friends of mine and to me the one of the biggest inspirations in my musical life.

BPM: Large up for the use of those samples in the tune, the second drop is amazing, its really effin uplifting! I can't personally wait to drop this! How was the reaction the first time you tested it?

KY: The reaction has been crazy,i think i remember first playing it on the Sub Slayers Drive time show on and the response was just insane! I wanted to make a tune that would appeal to a wider audience and something that had a conscious message.
One of the highlight releases of 2012, this is!

BPM: "ALL JUNGLIST'S MUST BIG UP!!!" You are a strong believer in what jungle, dub and roots legacy represent and man I can feel it in your tunes!!! It's amazing how you manage to make the message keep on going strong by dropping those basslines, how would you describe the magic of your creation? What can we expect from the scene to emerge next up?

KY: I grew up in Lewisham S.E.London during the 80's and was surrounded by Reggae music, I would listen to Saxon sound tapes and fell in love with the music and so when early rave music came about it was an instant attraction as alot of this music was sampling the reggae music i grew up on. Jungle music has come around full circle and has gone through many different changes and now 2012 is all about "Jungle Unity" bringing it together in all its different forms.

BPM:Nuff respects badman Yoof, and thanks very much, one love!
