Mr G

Mr G - one of dance music's most innovative and unique characters - releases his debut solo album on Radio Slave's Rekids imprint.

Mr G is Colin McBean. Beginning as part of the KCC DJ trio, playing the now legendary Confusion parties, he then became one half of The Advent (with Cisco), producing ground-breaking releases, remixes and albums and touring the world with their intense, relentless style of techno. He went alone in 1999 and founded his own label, Phoenix G, creating a unique brand of analogue bass-heavy electronic tech-funk, which immediately attracted props from his peers and the music press alike.

He also went on to release on labels including Defected, Duty Free, The End and Skint/ Loaded, also remixing artists including Miss Kittin, Josh Wink, Xpress 2 and many more.

In 2006, Mr G hooked up with Rekids and released the fourth ever EP for the label - 'E.C.G'ed', he followed with 'U Askin?' in 2007 and 'Makes No Sense' in 2008, then spending much of 2009 working on his debut solo album for the label 'Still Here (Get On Down)' set for release summer 2010.

"I had known Matt (Radio Slave) for years, via mutual respect for each-others' music, so it was great to work with him. I truly feel that the Rekids crew do it right, which made me feel for the first time to do my first solo long player with people I loved and trust...

I wanted to do an album that people would recognize as me, but that took you around my many shades of house and stays true to my sound. I still use my MPC and do my cuts and drops on the album live. Yeah, live I love to take a risk with the analog - how high, how low will it distort or break up... it's all part of the Mr G sound. Also, the tracks I feel work as a long player at home or in the studio, the real damage comes when you play any of the tracks on a big system. I'm an old sound buoy so I can give you some good weight, oh and that crazy twist only G does...

I collect records and have a wide knowledge of music, being funk, soul, rock, indie, roots, blues, jazz and dance music... so all these things influence me, but more importantly just everyday life and its highs and lows - and as it says on the album, the industry changing was a big part! But... I'm still here. Enjoy!"


Mr G's ‘Still Here (Get On Down)’ will be released in July 2010 on Rekids.
