DEEP MEDi are very happy to welcome Jack Sparrow to the label with his latest single ‘Afraid of Me’. Leeds based Ryan Wild aka Jack Sparrow has ben producing his own strain of Dubstep since 2006 and in that time has shown his versatility with releases on Contagious, Earwax and Tectonic ranging from dark tribal techno to heavy Soundsystem pressure. With residencies at Exodus/DMZ Leeds, Outlook festival, numerous shows and tours worldwide Jack Sparrow is becoming a highly in demand DJ and producer. Jack is also one half of production duo “Author” who released their debut album in November 2011.His first release on MEDi shows Jacks love of Techno and Soundsystem culture with the lead track ‘Afraid Of Me’. ‘Afraid Of Me’ intros with a heavy kick and twisted techno influences which drops straight into the pulsating sub bass which is tenacious throughout, only pausing for the beautifully dark breakdown where the track opens up and threatens to roll into a film score evocative of the ‘Watchmen’ from where the sinister vocal sample is taken. ‘This city’s free of me, I’ve seen it’s true face”. The flip ‘Good Old Days’ is a far more laidback, meditative and blissful vibe, Moody old skool jazz running’s with tripped out blissful sax, one for the hot summer nights!
