Tombee serves up his third dish on Jack to Phono Records! Godfathers follows on from Sticky Rhythm but with more of a hip hop vibe. The Cheeky Newcastle based producer has an ear for delivering the knockout dancefloor hook. On the flip we have a rather special appearance from Brighton's own Black Grass. Tombee's reaction is one of a kid in a sweet shop!

Press Release :
Tombee serves up his third dish on Jack to Phono Records! Godfathers follows on from Sticky Rhythm but with more of a hip hop vibe. The Cheeky Newcastle based producer has an ear for delivering the knockout dancefloor hook.

Tombee has been a busy boy since his last single on JTP. He's been remixing for the likes of The Seal Cub Clubbing, Pulp Fusion and Doctor Stereo. He's also has a track included on the DJ's choice compilation and rumours of another. Indeed he's also been designing trainers for the likes of Lack of Afro.He's also working with new producers such as Vital Substance and Winter North Atlantic. "It's nice to have been able to help people out and also nice to get back the results, that are very varied but all pretty cool in their own way."

You see Tombee has many strings to his bow..

Back to the release! On the flip we have a rather special appearance from Brighton's own Black Grass. Tombee's reaction is one of a kid in a sweet shop!

"Black grass - just awesome... I couldn't believe it when they agreed to remix it, I just love their tune Nice up. When I heard what they'd done it was mixed emotions. It was a case of that's amazing!!! I couldn't of hoped for anything better - and then - oh no! My mix is never gonna get played now. I seriously love what they done with it"

Biography :
Hi, I'm Tombee. I'm kind of a skratch DJ and producer, although to be honest I don't really DJ as much as I probably should. Currently I'm lucky enough to have a label putting my music out, but more about that in a bit. I've been Dj-ing since around 1992, when I used to be well into early breakbeat and drum n bass - or Hardcore as it was known back then.

I'm getting on a bit now so I've worked in lots of different places and industries. I've worked at record labels such as UNIVERSAL/ISLAND, RAWKUS UK, LONDON RECORDS, FFRR, MUSHROOM/INFECTIOUS RECORDS, FIERCE PANDA, LIVID MEER CAT, RABID BADGER, aswell as VIRGIN records to name but a few, doing various things, but nothing really glamerous.

I've worked in advertising too; as a writer. I've just recently I've got back into doing it again full time after getting sick of scraping a living doing music for the last 7 or 8 years. Basically I had enough of being skint, had just bought a house, and needed the dough. I find I'm getting pretty sensible and boring in my old age to be honest. I've done a few remixes and had a few records out, some of which you can hear here.

They were put out on rather a cool little label called Jack To Phono Records. It's a long story that started years and years ago with a pie in the sky dream. After a lot of hard work and a few lucky breaks I was put in touch with my label by a guy called Diesler, who has stuff out on the Tru Thoughts label as well as others. He was DJ-ing for me at Better Days, gave me their address and the rest is history. Now might be a good time to mention Better Days then...

I was a DJ and partner in BETTER DAYS, a Newcastle club night that notched up a tally of musical firsts for the city and ultimately led to me getting my music on a label.
I've also supported the likes of AIM, WOOZ of THE DMC CHAMPS THE FLAREDY CATS, KEB DARGE, MARK RAE, ONESELF, FREDDIE CRUGER, UTAH SAINTS, DREAD ZONE, WARP'S CHRIS CLARKE, AYAK, RED ASTAIRE, COLD CUTS skratch Dj RAJ PANNU and many more.
I've managed and was also head engineer at a MUSIC STUDIO in London - And I was also one third of the band VODA COLA, so I've done all that type of thing in my earlier years too.

I keep threatening to set up my own independant imprint, FLY FOLK-MUSIC, but never really get round to it. One day I will though. Honest.

Coming next on Jack To Phono :
Releases from Doctor Stereo, Dupe and Random Heroes and the SCCC album "Super Science Fiction"...
