In this episode of Mentor My Mix, we sit down with international musician and producer Jef Stott.
We discuss his musical transition from hard-hitting Global Bass to a more ethereal and ambient sound.
His most recent collaboration with Mah Ze Tar for The Zikr Project, and their latest release, Ishq on Black Swan Records combines Jef’s production with Mah Ze’s amazing musicianship.
Jef also talks about his series, The World is Sound, and how he seeks to bring rich musical culture to a wider audience.
He also touches on the meaning of Global Bass Music, and how to infuse ethnic instrumentation into electronic music.
