Stikmatik releases Imprint EP


Stikmatik releases Imprint EP

Twenty two year old London based music producer / songwriter Stikmatik kicks off 2012 in impressive fashion with the eclectically styled ‘Imprint EP’.

 Featuring five effortlessly pristine examples of electro music, ‘Imprint’ sees the fast rising producer interpret and amalgamate a variety of four on the floor sub genres. From the dancefloor ripe, bitter sweet synthesizer stabs of ‘I Gave You’ to the exotic vocal lines of ‘Pachanga’, and the bass heavy electronic dub stylings of ‘Riot’ to the uplifting swirling melodies of ‘Kick Drum’, the EP contains an undercurrent of innovation at every corner, making for an exciting, unpredictable and thoroughly head nod inducing experience for all purveyors of electronic music.

Stikmatik may be an unknown quantity to some, but his work behind the scenes (including production work for artists including Chipmunk, Wretch32, Wizzy Wow, Marvell, Frisco, PW, Wiley, Skepta and Roll Deep, as well as labels including Sony UK, Universal Music UK and Warner Music Denmark) has paved the way for major commercial success in 2012.
Born and raised in Tottenham, North London to Mauritian parents (a teacher and a singer / songwriter / producer); it didn’t take long for Stikmatik’s impressive talent to become recognised in the local grime scene. In 2004 Stikmatik caught his first big break, after being scouted and signed to Random Impulses up and coming record label Reignnessance Records. It was here that this promising young producer took his first major steps into the UK music industry, as part of a roster including a certain fresh faced soon-to-be Grime superstar Chipmunk. 

Working in partnership with label mate Wizzy Wow, Stikmatik went on to produce a majority of Wretch32 and Chipmunk's early material, before signing to Alwayz Recordings along with the latter in 2006.  It was at this point that Stikmatik decided to slow down on producing records to study a degree in BA Music and Arts Management at Middlesex University, helping further his understanding of the industry. 

Fast forward to 2012 and this immensely talented young musician is now ready to dominate in the ranks of British music producers. Having signed a deal with newly launched management agency ECOE Management, Stikmatik is set to establish himself as one of the UK’s most exciting producers / songwriters, with the ‘Imprint’ EP serving as his long overdue, critically anticipated introduction.
