Ghost Writerz - Sharp And Ready Selection

Ghost Writerz Sharp And Ready Selection

"The Ghost Writerz step cross with an exclusive-jammed mix of dubplates and pre-release material. You ready for this?"

While a majority of labels shift their focus on reissues (with no production costs) and live bands (with a simple old school business model: touring and selling merch), there still are a few out there who do the real job: digging "in the now", finding, signing new artists and releasing new productions. Brighton's finest Tru Thoughts is one of those and it's already been going on for 15 years now… Reason enough for Paris DJs to celebrate the label's 15th anniversary, by inviting four of their artists to do an exclusive mix, starting with UK Sound System Culture sensation Ghost Writerz. The duo is the first signing of Tru Thoughts brand new sub-label Sharp & Ready, designed to spotlight the "new wave" of artists on the UK sound system scene...

"Sharp And Ready is the Sound System Culture arm of Tru Thoughts recordings. A platform for the New Wave of UK Sound System Culture, a coalescing of influences and heritage - from Reggae through Hip Hop and Jungle - and the distinct sonic and societal markers of our time, into something wholly new, carried forward by a growing contingent of passionate, talented artists and brought to you by one of the UK's most respected independent labels." (

Besides Quantic & DJ Vadim, this mix was for us a source of a lot of new discoveries. Paris DJs is, obviously, based in Paris, and we don't have any (other) media about groovy music over here in France so it's hard to find out about new bands. The reggae/dub/soundsystem scene has always been big in the UK, but it has been years if not decades since it started getting THAT interesting again. This mix sets things right. We've added many links (see below) for all the artists featured here, don't hesitate to go check their streams and social pages if you like what your hear… and be sure to be back next week for the second part of this quadrilogy of mixes celebrating Tru Thoughts' 15th anniversary!

And don't forget to check the Ghost Writerz' brand new single & video 'Back It Up' here...
