J Da Flex – BBC 1xtra 1st Birthday Promo Mix – 2003
September 2003, this promo mix was included with the monthly edition of (the now extinct) Deuce Magazine. J Da was promoted from a Wednesday slot, to a prime time Saturday night at 9pm.
His style had become less Garage and more breakier, where he was repping labels like Storming Productions, Hotflush & Big Apple alongside releases from the more well known Tempa.
On this CD he plays up & coming London producers like Vex’d and Benga & Skream, with a heavy up north contingent from Dubchild, Mark One & Darqwan/ Oris Jay
An idea of where things were in 2003, Hatcha’s Dubstep Allstars 001 CD had came out a few months before this giveaway.
