“A really talented musician, absolutely loving that” Lauren Laverne on This Is The One, BBC Radio 6 Music All This Trouble - Beat Of The Week - The Huey Show BBC Radio 6 Music “The Only Sound represents the finest in musicianship, composition and modern electronic skills and shows that this beat-maker is about a whole lot more and has the chops to prove it.” Beatselector Magazine “The Only Sound updates what has gone before in consistently interesting ways.” God Is In The TV “Exquisitely recorded downtempo hip hop-ready beats, but it’s as much knee-deep in jazz” The Arts Desk “Fans of Ninja Tunes, Mo Wax, St Germain and DJ shadow need to check this out, tight production throughout, a beat selection that’s simply infectious, guest vocals and crate dug samples blended to perfection, it’s a lush musical journey for those hot summers days or a warm chilled out evenings.” Backseat Mafia ========= Jonny Drop has been winning praise from personal heroes including Kenny Dope, Mr. Thing and Nightmares On Wax in recent years, alongside continued support on BBC Radio 6 Music. But latest album The Only Sound truly brought his production style to bigger audiences. Flashlight is the first single to follow that release, featuring the honey-smooth vocals of Grace Walker amongst jostling, jazz drums and waves of sub bass. It’s popularity on the album left us in no doubt that it deserved some attention of it’s own, plus a couple of new versions. Label mate Aeshim provides a beautifully bumpy broken-beat rendition that features one of the strangest and wonkiest bass drops we’ve heard this year at about the halfway mark! Then Jonny Drop himself returns to the project for a hugely stripped back and hypnotic retake.
