It is, no doubt about it, the era of the producer right now. But while releases of a House and Dance persuasion are currently enjoying chart success, there are beat-makers of alternate influence steadily creeping into club-goers consciousness.
Unlike his peers Disclosure or Rudimental, producer and turntabalist Show N Prove brings a distinctly urban edge to his club based compositions. With a back catalogue that includes artists as diverse as Skinnyman, Jessie J, Rizzle Kicks, Tinchy Stryder, Benny Banks and Maxsta, this Scottish producer is delivering a whole new world of sonic inspiration to speakers.
“Hip Hop has so many other genres within it, so it’s very freeing to create with,’ says Show. “You can make things soulful, jazzy, pop, trap-y or straight up club. Hip Hop is, I guess, the basis or where I begin, but it’s not always the end result.My main objective in the studio is to make music for people to dance to, whatever form that might take.” Now working with everyone from Wiley to Professor Green, Wretch 32 and Jacob Banks, on both their albums and his own debut record, Show is ready to make the transition from behind the scenes composer to artist in his own right.
