Birmingham producer Preditah's made his name with grime—he did a stint as the tour DJ for Skepta, to wit—but his latest single, "Selecta," flirts with house in a way that a lot of grime doesn't. Nifty! And naturally, London duo Wilfred Giroux have turned the tune out further with a four-to-the-floor remix that emphasizes the tune's jacking heart. The single sees proper release on March 8 via 3 Beat.
"I make music for me, not to please anyone else – and I always have done," Preditah told FADER in an email. "If other people like it then great, but I don't feel pressure to keep people happy. I'll never stop making grime, but tracks like 'Selecta' and what I do with 4/4 remixes, mean I can keep exploring, and stay open to new ideas and sounds. The tempo might be quicker, but the bass and the dark edge is there."
