London-based producer J Rick has announced the release of his debut mixtape No Retreat, No Surrender this September 13th on Warner Records. Alongside today's announcement, J shares brand new track "Here," which premiered on DJ Target's radio show as his Target Embargo on BBC 1xtra.
In the past twelve months, J Rick's pervasive, intoxicating productions have become instrumental in sound-tracking the sound of London. His expansive production work with friends and fellow Essie Gang affiliates Octavian, L3 and Michael Phantom have come to define British rap this year, meanwhile recent solo releases "Short" and "Gone" hint at a richer and more diverse sonic palette. Nowhere is that more evident than debut mixtape No Retreat, No Surrender.
An homage to his uncle, British boxer Errol Christie, and his life mantra, the album assimilates elements of rap, house, garage and grime to showcases everything unique about J's differentiated vision. Featuring a who's who of exceptional talent such as Obongjayar, Rimon and Octavian, the album was interpreted with clips of Errol's interviews and inspired by the arc of his life; from growing up in the National Front heartland of the UK midlands in the 1970s to becoming a British boxing champion.
