Jaydan debuts on DARKMTTR Records with ‘Tonight / Sundown’


As the first guest producer featured on S.P.Y‘s fledgling imprint DARKMTTR Records, Jaydan is taking the honours and has delivered a really strong 2 track single ‘Tonight / Sundown’. These tracks stay true to his new sound for 2022 which fits in perfectly with the label’s musical direction.

Jaydan aka Jamie Cope was born and raised in the UK city of Leicester. As a youngster, he discovered Drum & Bass through his older brother and instantly felt a strong connection.

In 2003 he attended his first major event at the legendary Sanctuary in Milton Keynes and instantly fell in love with the music and culture. From this point forward he focussed on learning to DJ and then moved on to music production. By the end of 2004, he had secured his first release ‘Awakened’ on Reformed Recordings the sister label of Formation Records which received support from several top DJs.

Jaydan continued to release a prolific catalogue of releases on labels ranging from Propaganda to Playaz and Ganja, and of course his own Smokin’ Riddims.

Fast forward to the present and following a 2-year break from music, 2022 has seen a return to the studio with a new sound and a new outlook. Jaydan has consequently secured releases with not only DARKMTTR Records but also with Serial Killaz and scored a number 1 selling track across all genres on Juno!

Back to this release…On the first track, ‘Tonight’, an orchestral intro flows into steppy beats leading into a dark growling bassline. The dancefloor ready beeps and blips tease as a vocal element carries the melody and B-line. Heavy, deep, and rolling!

Next up, ‘Sundown’ features uplifting elements, a core-stirring reese bassline and a deep vocal to enhance the groove. Atmospheric elements add to the mood.

Today we premiere ‘Tonight’ which you can check out below. The release drops this Friday 25th March, do yourself a favour and grab a copy for your collection from here!
