iO is new, twenty four year old, producer from Guilford who is creating some of the freshest garage tunes I’ve heard in a very long time. His mix of cut up soul accapellas, minimal effects (that one shaker effect, that sounds like someone enticing you with a tube of Pringles) and bass, make up an oh so danceable concoction that is destined to be huge.
Amazingly iO isn’t signed yet, but there are deals in the label pipeline for vinyl and digital releases. Trust me, if we had any money, we’d be getting some of his stuff out ourselves.
iO – You/Me
iO – Dirty Little Secret
iO is also offering his new mix for download. Check out all of his stuff on Soundcloud. Really, go and do that right away…Spread the word
