#ThrowbackThursday: Sticky ft. Tubby T – Tales From the Hood
Back in the early ’00’s, Sticky should have been nicknamed ‘Midas’, his touch instantly turned any track into listening gold, tunes such as ‘Triplets‘, ‘Booo‘ featuring Ms Dynamite and ‘$tush‘ ft. Stush Dollar Sign made a huge impact on UK Garage at the time and it would be fair to say, also helped to open up the commercial awareness of the UK Garage genre.
I revisit this track every Summer without exception and like a true Brit, by posting this now, I’m still trying to cling onto the sunny days and outright refuse to accept it’s almost Winter.
Featuring Tubby T (RIP) this track was released in 2002 and conveys a positive message which hasn’t aged a day, be true to your purpose over material gain any day, all day, err’yday.
Nikki has worked in various positions in the Music industry for over ten years including Artist Management, Booking Agency and Record Label Management. She runs Synchronicity, Spentshell, UKBM and Manages Flowdan & Ruby Black.
“Bass does something to me. I absolutely immersed myself in Drum & Bass during my teens and early twenties, and when Dubstep came along I was thrown into that love once again, not just the music, but the whole community surrounding it.
Working in the industry has been a dream for me, and being involved in such a vibrant scene means that I constantly come across incredibly talented individuals who I just want to shout about and that’s what I use the UKBM platform for, to promote talent whether known or new.”
