BBC Radio 1Xtra's Hot 4 2011: Emalkay - Crusader
Dubstep producer Emalkay has been tipped for mainstream recognition in 2011. 2009 saw the Birmingham-based producer rise to prominence with the then-voted best Dubstep track of the year When I Look at You, which was not only supported by the scene’s biggest DJs, it was chosen as single of the week by 1Xtra’s MistaJam, Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, and the Guardian newspaper. Not content with producing one of the biggest underground anthems of the year, Emalkay was also busy remixing tracks for the likes of Faithless, Miike Snow, Freeland, BBE, and most recently, drum and bass heavyweights Pendulum. With a fresh release out on Storming Productions, and an album in the pipeline, Emalkay is well on his way to cementing his place as one of dubstep’s finest producers and DJs, playing events all over the world, including Glastonbury.
