Interview With JC Unique of Unique2Rhythm

12842609_557691651078354_421513035_o

 

You won’t find a house imprint the calibre of Unique2Rhythm either side of the Atlantic, the label is undoubtedly one of the best with a back cat that speaks for itself with an ethos that champions pristine production and melodic goodness first and foremost. We are very pleased to share this exclusive interview with label boss and producer JC Unique, read on for some pearls of wisdom for aspiring label owners and artists…

For those who don’t know, tell us a bit about Unique 2 Rhythm Records and how it began. How did you get into music production? What were the initial steps?

As a teenager in the late 80’s I was drawn into sound technology starting out with a mates Sequential Circuits Pro One synthesizer, a Tascam cassette portastudio and a Boss hand clapper stomp box. Probably the first tracks that blew me away and made me want to produce were driven by drum machines such as Cameo, the SOS Band, Prince, Chaka Khan in fact just about anything that Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were involved with. I must have spent years trying to get record deals meeting up with A&R people and taking their ‘position of power’ attitude on the chin. None of it was particularly constructive and we all went through it, but in one such meeting, an A&R guy trying to sound clever actually provided a moment of clarity. He said “if you think your music is so effin’ good, why don’t you go and see your bank manager and put it out yourself?” – at the time I replied “You ARE the bank manager you smart-arse !” but it did make me explore the possibilities and by the late 90’s I was releasing white-labels on P&D deals and making the regular trips to Brick Lane.

Chatting On The Sofa With Jago

TRU319_300ppi

This is your first album but how long have you been involved in the music industry and what inspired you to get in?

I’ve been doing music for years now. The early jungle scene in London is what got me interested in the first place.

What made you chose the title “Microphones And Sofas?”

I was sleeping on sofas in the studios I recorded at, so it makes sense. I only really picked it after writing it in my thanks section on the album. It’s an accident really.

Can You Take Us through The Process Of Hooking Up With legends like DJ Vadim, fresh new talent like Ghost Writerz and all the great artists and singers/rappers you collaborated with on this album?

I’m part of a sound system called unit 137. It’s also a studio and label. Most of the people I collaborated with were either friends or people that were naturally around the studio

Tell us a bit about the group you are part of, onlyjoe

Onlyjoe is a reggae band from London. We’ve played together for a few years and toured over the place. Most of us are also involved in other music projects also but I think what makes onlyjoe really work for me is that the project is always quite politically aware.

There’s somewhat of an oldskool vibe to the album, was this an intentional thing I.e were you looking to revive some of those classic 80s/90s sounds?

Yeah I was doing an Ep with Ed West and that grew into becoming the album. I think it’s the sounds I’m drawn to really. I wanted to have a few styles on the album. I had some jungle I’d recorded before that I was considering putting on there too but that’ll maybe be something else in the future.

Any final words or shout outs?

Big up anyone contributing good energy to the world. Big up the sun and big up yourselves
