As DJ Rap gears up for this Sunday’s ‘Kmag presents Fluid DnB’ night in Los Angeles we touch base to take a look back at the past twenty years of her Propa Talent imprint as well as revisit her own roots in the jungle / d&b scene.

Looking back over the past two decades, do you see the imprint as a reflection of your own evolution as an artist?…

Coppa Launches Comanche Records

0

The debut single on Coppa’s new label Comanche, Overtake, is about to drop so we caught up with him to find out what’s he got in store for us and how he’s getting on with his forthcoming album. Why have you started Comanche? A few reasons but mainly because I get a lot of incoming recording projects and jobs from all over, which I really enjoy doing (the ones I accept) but people have their own general sound idea when they come to you, a lot of the time based on their own vision, which is great obviously and love…

After a string of releases on labels like Innerground, Soul:r, Metalheadz, V Recordings and their own Invaderz Transmissions between 2000 – 2009 The Invaderz have been fairly quiet in recent years.
