Miss Radcliffe Meets.....Moteleola

My favourite song right now is "Skin Deep" (Currently my ringtone) produced by South London's Moteleola feat. The beautiful Olivia-Louise.
I love this song along with "So Good" feat. Cheer Dolor & Sene.
This definitely puts me in the mood for summer.

Here is my quick Q&A with the man himself.

Miss R: Who Are Your Musical Inspirations?

Premo, Dilla & Pete I think are a must to mention. Arguably the most prolific names in beat making ever, and most impactful. My favourite producer of recent has been Jake One, I admire his humble personality despite his bold and sublime beats. His furthest thing beat on Drakes NWTS album is incredible, from the sample chops to the crisp drum selection and drum patterns, it's an amazing piece. Apollo Brown is another producer I highly respect and draw inspiration from. Producing entire albums of work with various emcee pairings, from OC to Guilty Simpson. In addition to this Apollo Brown's infamous thick thumping kick and snare will have your head nodding for days.

Miss R: What Music Do You Listen To?

First and foremost, for me personally Jay Z, Nas, Biggie and Pac are the greatest rappers of all time! Their prowess as writers is among the best in history in my opinion. Apart from that when i'm not listening to records to sample I listen to hip hop a lot! Everything from J Cole to Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T and Drake, to Evidence, Blu and Wretch 32. I love music that inspires and is skilfully executed. I learnt more from hip hop music than I did from any teacher at school.

Miss R: Tell Me About Your New Album 'Oasis Black'

Oasis Black is my new album produced, mixed and compiled entirely by myself featuring various talented artists as vocals. It will be available for free download late August or early Winter this year.

Miss R: Who Have You Worked With So Far?

For Oasis Black I created with artists I have produced music for previously, plus a handful of new artists I hope to continue to build with. From long time collaborators such as Big Rooz and Melodious Mike of Devils Kazoo to Olivia Louise, J. Manifesto, Signif, and even my younger brother Taunts of SWB. To verses from Jeff Spec, Sene, Chaundon, Mello Music Group's Has Lo plus even more.

Miss R: Who Would You Like To Work With In The Future?

I would love to work with Blu, his Below the Heavens album with Exile still sounds like magic to this day. Producing across the TDE roster would be an amazing opportunity. At the moment though I'm just staying focused, creating more music, and practising my production every day until I can be in such positions.
