Fact Mix 842: Fiyahdred

An epic, two-hour journey through the wide variety of music that has informed the south London producer, artist and DJ’s sound over the years.

Last year the artist formerly known as Bamz exploded onto Hyperdub under a new moniker and with an omnivorous, explosive sound. Following two essential tracks for Future Bounce and a killer collaboration with Scratchclart with The Classix 2, the south London producer, artist and DJ now known as Fiyahdred shared the irresistible Anyway, five shapeshifting, smoked-out tunes splicing the swing and swagger of UK funky with elements of amapiano, dancehall and hip hop. That project’s title track, ‘Anyway (Do It)’, was amongst our very favourites from last year, a high-sprung, low-swung and sultry ode to smoke that cements the producer as one to keep a close eye on in 2022.

For their Fact mix, Fiyahdred spins us on an epic, two-hour journey through the expanse of sounds that have informed their production over the years. “This mix is my way of showing gratitude to all the wonderful music that has shaped me and how I listen to and create music,” they explain. “Tunes that have been shared with me by my family, friends and all the amazing beings I have met throughout my musical journey.”

They bounce between classic tracks and fresh sounds, from dancehall interpolations, drum machine disco and sultry amapiano to feverish deep house, seismic gqom and ecstatic zouk, all via “the bounciest selections, bodacious basslines and fiyah blends.” In short, it’s an absolute joy from start to finish, a bolt of blazing energy we’re doing our best to bring with us into 2022.

You can find Fiyahdred on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Mixcloud, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Youtube. Anyway is out now.
