about

'Bristol, UK-based producer, Awkward drops his new record, The Metal At The Core.

On paper the record, with its Stateside collaborations, reads as a product of the Internet, the expansion of local scenes into global communities, but Awkward's sound is just as much about hanging out at a record store as it is message boards.

The record is an extension into a sound he's been honing since '04 and to an extent, the 90s. He's got the rich trip hop history in his backyard, but it was the Los Angeles beat music sound, popularized by Low End Theory and various beatmaker workshops that caught his ear in the early Aughts and shaped his blend of production.

The Metal at The Core is a solo record first and foremost, while a supporting cast of Zackey Force Funk, Civilian, Open Mike Eagle, Sole, Mat Gamin, N8 NoFace, Benjamin One, and Cadalack Ron make appearances.'
