It's looking very much like Pete O'Grady is set to kill it once again in 2011. Better known as Joy Orbison, the man behind big hits of last year Hyph Mngo and The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow. There has been a distinct switch up in his sound. Often a slower tempo has been adopted and he borrows much from the housier side of things. It is a stirring change and one that has brought him success already with a scheduled release for Hotflush. Ladywell and BB were both great tracks with a house energy and tempo, and if you choose to believe that Sicko Cell is his too then we can safely say that this year holds sizeable amounts of good vibes for him.

Londoner James Fox's production is very strong. His tunes are brilliant in their simplicity. I like the tempo and the way in which he fades in the synths, particularly in these two tracks. Ramadanman did a good remix too of his track "Put It Back". Some people rate this guy very highly, I would have to agree with them...

Melé is a producer i'm feeling a lot. He hails from Liverpool and to me his tunes have just the right amount of influence from the grime and funky side of things.
Just about a month ago he gave away this track for free via Soundcloud
Here are some more bits. His tunes have got a good frenetic jump up vibe to them.
