Looking backwards to move forwards, BackRoad Gee is taking UK rap into uncharted territory
Bristolian producer L U C Y aka Lucy Helyer initially made a name for herself as an instrumental grime producer, but in the mix she operates well beyond those boundaries.
Having worked on her production craft since the age of 15, the DJ and radio regular has been prolific with beatmaking ever since, fashioning frost-tipped, hollow rost-tipped, hollow instrumentals that bang.
Her skills took her to the final of the Red Bull Riddim Rally, while her selecting talent has meant she’s just been announced as one of the DJs involved in new female-fronted radio station, foundation.fm.
It’s a supremely talented DJ that can mine the best of the UK underground in just one mix, and L U C Y seamlessly fires through UK funky, soca, breaks, dubstep, garage, d&b, grime, jungle, footwork and more – and for that reason, this mix is worth its weight in gold.
