Preditah is a Garage/Grime music composer, DJ & Bassist from Birmingham, England. He was one of the leading producers of grime's instrumental resurgence during the 2010s. While his tracks are every bit as bass-heavy and angular as one would expect from the genre, he emphasizes melodies and chord progressions. He often uses brassy orchestral synthesizer tones.
He listened to Garage music mainly while growing up and he heard it transform from Garage into Eski-Beat and then into Grime. The first record he bought was Golly Gosh by Sticky while the first album he bought was Wiley's Treddin’ on Thin Ice.
My early musical interests came from those genres.
I remember staying at a relatives house and my older cousin was blasting Garage music.
Tracks from So Solid, DJ Zinc and the like - that’s when I found the sound my ears had been yearning for.
Preditah made his debut in 2011 with the four-song Solitaire EP, which quickly caught the attention of Boy Better Know's JME. By the end of the year, Preditah had released the Eightsome EP and remixed songs by Trim and Roots Manuva. Several more EPs appeared during the next few years, with 2012's giddy Circles being a highlight, and Preditah's "Vinyls VIP" was one of the standout tracks on Big Dada's 2013 compilation Grime 2.0. Remixes followed for Danny Brown, Chase & Status, Skepta, and many others.
In 2015, Preditah made a surprising venture into more accessible territory with the house singles "Supernaturally" and the Craig David-sampling "Selecta."
He returned to grime with 2017's Blank Canvas, Vol. 1 EP.
Also appearing that year was the mix CD Fabriclive 92, which ranged from grime and garage to jungle.
He was also responsible for the 2017 smash ‘On My Mind’ with Jorja Smith which featured on her debut album ‘Lost & Found.
Labels and Production
Preditah first gig at fabric was back in 2012 for a night called ‘Roska Presents’ by Roska.
I played in Room Two and I’ll never forget that night!
I’ve also been to fabric as a raver a few times and those nights were special because at the time, I didn’t know I’d end up DJing there in the near future, let alone doing a FBRICLIVE CD and holding a night for it too!
Fabric is one of the best clubs in the UU simply because the people that attend don’t go there to ‘snapchat’ and document.
They go there to rave.
As a DJ, he recorded this mix back then inside his room after choosing each track carefully.
He claimed to have relationship with everyone that featured in The Mix with his favorite being "Up On You" by Black Loops.
The future is Circles Recordings!
The future for me is about continuing to push music from my label Circles Recordings I want to keep traveling the world playing Grime and Garage music to the masses but most importantly, I want to keep putting out Quality music for my fans and others to enjoy in the Clubs.
