A UK music icon. MJ Cole is a unique musical pioneer.
The London born producer, DJ and writer has released some of the most important UK dance records of past decades.
His intricate, heart-wrenching productions have done more to link the abstract, avant-garde tendencies of the UK Garage sound to the exploding mainstream scene more than any contemporary.
‘Sincere’ and ‘Crazy Love’, two beautifully crafted classic records released in 1998 and 2000, rapidly propelled MJ Cole from the underground to households across the country. The album that followed, ‘Sincere’, went gold and exceeded 100,000 sales representing a huge breakthrough for UK Garage music.
The combination of deep, soulful vocals and unrivalled production ability created an era-defining body of work, building on a growing reputation and earning him accolades from the likes of Brit, MOBO and Mercury prizes. The albums musical legacy endures throughout in modern dance music to this day.
Not only has he remained a relevant and essential member of the ever-evolving UK music scene but has become an integral part of what makes UK underground music so incredibly exciting.
