Major Grave in his own words
"I’m a producer from Ireland who goes by the name Major Grave. Im a member of the Standard crew along side DJ Bob & DJ Colz. Standard have been running a weekly radio show every Saturday night on Radio Na Life 106.4FM since 2009. Bringing new, old and exclusive Garage/Grime/Dubstep and lots more from the underground – Standard Radio archives
I got a whole heap of new tracks on my hard-drive and wanted to give people the chance to listen to them so I have put this mix together. I’ve been making beats since about 2007 and only recently started putting my music out there (DJs/MC’s/Singers get in touch).
I mainly use an AKAI MPC 2500 and Ableton Live & Pro Tools for production. My first EP MajorBeatz_Vol.01 was produced and mixed using only the MPC.
I am currently doing some work with a couple of MC’s, some known names and some new ones. Im also in the middle of recording some tracks with a very talented female singer, I’m not going to say much more on that just yet...
I have another EP coming out soon, “Next Ting”.
This is a 4 track instrumental EP and will be available from the MajorBeatz Bandcamp. "
