Ever since S-X — the 18 year old Wolverhampton producer — was catapulted to cult status following the release of “Woooo Riddim” (one of the biggest grime beats of all time), an entire genre has been anxious to see what the young prodigy has in store.
S-X describes his critically acclaimed productions as “S-X Music”, a sound of his own that he doesn’t want pigeon-holed… this has weaved throughout genres such as Hip-Hop for Chipmunk, bassline for Trilla and urban/pop for Encore. Due to initially being championed by the grime scene, and now working on everything from dance records with Roll Deep to trap records with Cash Money CEO Birdman, S-X thought it was only right to thank his initial supporters by making his 5,000 Followers EP strictly at 140bpm. While still being a sound of his own and incorporating an eclectic mix of influences, the “5,000 Followers EP” is a nod to the scene that gave the wonderkid his initial break.
Add to this Dizzee Rascal’s long-awaited return to grime on D Double E’s S-X produced “Bluku! Bluku!” single; despite S-X having his sites firmly set on the charts and working with some of the biggest names on both sides of the Atlantic, it’s clear to see that the young Wolverhampton native doesn’t need church bells to channel the sound of Bow.
While it’s still early days, all indicators seem to suggest that we’re witnessing the rise of who’s set to become the first ever global super-producer to emerge from the grime scene.
