Sinjin Hawke is a #blessed individual with an ear for binding emotions within hip-hop and R&B. With an extensive output through the waves of his Soundcloud he’s a producer that is versatile to say the least, drawing his inspiration from a range of mixed sounds from mainly R&B, rap and hip-hop to the further likes of trap, garage, dancehall and juke. While eclecticism and quality don’t always go hand in hand, Hawke consistently proves that he can progressively create tracks that marry all categories of sound into a union of richly enjoyable music. To add to his list of achievements, he was also responsible for curating the much revered Boomclap parties in Montreal, alongside Markus of LOL Boys and Azamat B, with whom he also works under the moniker ITFW, responsible for the treasured Ciara edit of “Surgeon” that was featured on our first Truancy compilation.
With his debut imminent in November on the uniformly inspiring Pelican Fly, we have a marvelous package of bootlegs to give away that he’s done in the recent past. His “Bootlegs 2011″ include tracks that we’ve heard before such as the “I’m On One” edit that caught everyone’s attention on Jacques Greene’s recent Allez-Allez mix, but also his unreleased impressive re-work of The-Dream’s “Fancy”, a track that we thought had already reached all possible levels of perfection, but reaches new heights at the hands of his craft. Add a stripped-down and enthralling Beyonce instrumental, two passionate Brandy bootlegs, an effortlessly cool Waka Flocka edit in collaboration with Grand Theft, a impactful footwork edit of Tevin Campbell’s “Shhh” and a collaboration with LOL Boys and you have yourself a recipe for sheer joy. Aside from these unmissable bootlegs to give away, we also spoke to Sinjin Hawke about his musical roots, Montreal, his move to Barcelona and inevitably his upcoming debut.
