Who Is Tyke?
While he’s been releasing music since 2008, Tyke really came to the forefront in 2012 with the anthem ‘Infected Headphones’ on Twisted Individual’s Grid Recordings label. ‘Infected Headphones’ was a staple with both Fabio & Grooverider on BBC Radio 1, Crissy Criss on BBC Radio 1Xtra, and DJ Hype on Kiss FM.
Since signing to Playaz Tyke has released an impressive 7 EP’s & 3 singles on the label, including the brilliant tracks ‘Blessing’ featuring Daddy Earl, ‘They Must Come’, ‘Lion Of Judah’ & ‘Dream Catcher’ featuring Yisrael on vocals.
Tyke’s sound is notoriously bass-heavy and charged with a musical knowledge and creative, scope that makes all of his tracks worth a listen.
As well as releasing on Playaz, Tyke also has his own Holographic Audio label where, as well as dropping a handful of his own productions, he pushes out some great drum & bass music from artists such as Prestige, Nick The Lot, Particle, Lovell, Hexa & Damage Report.
