Mashing up dancehall, hip hop, UK house and bass music influences to create a flowing yet constantly surprising album

Hint’s third album ‘Daily Intake’, out 19th March 2012, sees this highly respected underground producer, remixer and DJ working with incredible vocal talent from around the World; which is a scintillating record for dancefloors and headphone moments alike.

Album opener “Crash And Burn” featuring Natalie Storm is the lead single, to be released as a limited edition upfront double A-side 10” (backed with “Aliens Enter” feat. T-Fly) in January. Hint’s take on current UK house mixed with Jamaican dancehall, “Crash And Burn” characterises the album’s sense of being both weighty and a lot of fun. Through serious and thought-provoking lyrics, Jamaican talent Storm proves that not every club banger has to be all about partying. Hint (Jonathan James to his Ma), says, “Natalie picked up on the mood of the track and used the energy to talk passionately about injustices in the World.” An early promo has been met with immense support, with confirmed radio play including Rob da Bank on BBC Radio 1.

‘Daily Intake’ features a handful of uniquely talented vocalists, with women heavily outnumbering men; while this bias was not intentional, it has a striking effect, and in Hint’s words, “I’m glad it’s worked out that way. So much of the UK underground scene can be too male-dominated, so I feel that bringing in some super talented female voices to the mix adds a new dimension.”
