5 Years of First Word Mixed by Andy H & Gilla

First Word Records

Released: 14th September 2009 | 17 track jazz rap/hip-hop single
First Word Records return from the summer break with a brand new mix album celebrating five years of the label. Label bosses Andy H and Gilla have got together to pick their favourite tracks from the first half-decade, whittling it down to 16 brilliant tunes from the FW vaults. Kicking off with recent signings 6ix Toys and the infectious 'Giggle' then moving swiftly into kidkanevil's 'Black Bug', the mix takes in all the label's biggest club tunes. With early highlights such as The Haggis Horns' 'Hot Damn!' and kidkanevil's 'Kranium Rock' (along with Diesler's bouncy re-rub), sitting alongside more recent efforts including 6ix Toys' huge cover of The Prodigy's 'Voodoo People' and a couple of tracks from Homecut's highly-praised 'No Freedom Without Sacrifice' album. Andy H is resident at the legendary Tuesday Club, one of the world's biggest midweek DnB / Hip Hop club nights. Andy is renowned for his party rocking club sets in his native Sheffield and beyond. 2007 saw him reach the UK DMC finals at the first time of asking, following that up with the release of last year's seismic bass wobbler 'Kick Kick' (included on this mix), and the speaker-wrecking 'Serious' on sister label Tipping Point. Look out for more new tunes and remixes from Andy in 2010. Founder of award-winning Leeds' clubnight New Bohemia back in 2004, Gilla has been a key part of the Northern club scene for nearly 10 years. Since running the revered Funky Mule club back in 2001, the move into DJing and starting First Word was a natural progression. You can check him out at his residencies at New Bohemia and Leeds institution The Hifi Club, as well as London's The Marketplace. The album is available on a mixed CD and as individual tracks at all good download stores.
