MJ Cole

Country: UK

Genres: Garage


A Royal College of Music graduate who has released some of the mostimportant UK dance records of the last ten years, MJ Cole's intricate,heart-wrenching garage productions did more to link the abstract,avant-garde tendencies of the sound to the exploding mainstream scene thanany other artist¹s work.

Releasing Sincere in 1998, an era-defining single that was both one of the biggest influences on 21st century British dance music, and an overground hit, MJ Cole went on to sign to Gilles Peterson¹s Talkin¹ Loud label where he put out Sincere the album; one of if not the defining garage full-length, and one that spawned the massive single ŒCrazy Love¹. It wasalso nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

While he never lost his touch with underground British club music MJ Cole's releases on his own label, Prolific, including the recent Riddim EP, remixes for Mad Decent, Primary 1, Drop The Lime, etc and his production work with Wiley and Example among others show a man deeply committed to the search for
emotive, smart and brave club music.
