Sheffield-based producer Squarehead (AKA Oliver Ledger) was recently given the opportunity to develop his dream EP at Red Bull Studios. The widely praised star spent time in the London studio space, which is regularly used by the likes of Jessie Ware, to collaborate with some of the UK’s top vocalists and take an alternative direction to sample based tunes. It was also the very first time Squarehead has ever worked with vocalists, and he was able to create three tracks with the sublime trio of Jenna G, Lauren Faith and Terri Walker for his incredible EP. The tracks, which include three vocals and one instrumental, released on Monday 8th December 2014 and made freely available to listen and download.
Squarehead says: “I feel I have been given an amazing chance to produce something quite different, working with three talented vocalists and also being able to record my EP in the Red Bull Studios. Jenna, Lauren and Terri were all brilliant to work with and I really feel we have created something special. I was a little bit nervous to start with as this was the first time I had worked with vocalists, but I’m happy with the results and hope people out there get downloading my EP for free from Monday 8th December.” Influenced by the Sheffield scene and also playing across garage, house, techno and disco, Squarehead has supported Eats Everything, B.Traits and Maya Jane Coles and he has received support from fellow Sheffield star Toddla T, as well as Annie Mac, Skream and many more. With Sheffield running through his blood, the keen Wednesday fan is already a familiar figure in the city’s thriving music scene, and his new EP and collaboration with Red Bull Studios further augments his standing both locally and nationally. One of 10 studios globally from Sao Paulo to Cape Town, New York to Copenhagen, Red Bull Studios in London is a non-commercial recording studio, dedicated to supporting musical talent and creative projects.
