Omar Mccutcheon, better known by his alias Batu, is a true musical entrepreneur. His reach spans through DJing, production, his label Timedance as well as putting on some killer parties. Having debuted on Pinch’s label Cold Recordings, his music has since been released on Livity Sound, Hotline Recordings, Mistry, Tempa as well as his own Timedance, which was recently labelled “the future of UK music” by Semtek and Bruce.
Batu’s music, inspired by UK’s dance music culture and – in particular, jungle, dubstep and grime – features powerful percussive elements and ventures outside the realms of normal sound structures. Through his imprint he also hosts semi-regular events that have seen the likes of Peverelist, Metrist, Asusu, Nick Craddock, Bake, Beneath, Bruce and Untold play, with the next instalment inviting A Made Up Sound and Lurka to spin some records.
We’ve been big fans of Batu since hearing his first release, so we invited him in ahead of his next party to share some records with us. Providing an insight into his musical inspirations with four tracks he is listening to right now, here are his Tracks of the Day selections.
