Wayne Lotek (2006)

Lotek has a habit of doing things ever so nicely.... His latest video for "The Rudest Dude" is mighty slick with that old school feel over something you know had to be made in the last decade...With enough accolades including some for production on the Getaway Soundtrack and works on Roots Manuva's albums, this Birmingham artist has now found root in Australia where it seems tings a gwarn for some of the UK boys.......Peep the interview and footage...old school 2006, filmed in his Birmingham Studios...

At the time, Lotek was doing some mix and master work for SonnyJim on the Soul Trader EP with a notable ear when it comes to playing it back through your monitors..

CTRL ALT DEL is an example of those analytical raps that just ring a bit too true when you think about them....Wayne Lotek..
