A.G. is no stranger to DJ Mag’s Selections series. Numerous selectors have bigged up the East London producer in their own choices, emphasising her distinctly emotive take on the sounds of garage, grime and UK drill. Throughout her prolific Bandcamp catalogue, which has seen her release 12 EPs, singles and remixes since the beginning of 2020, A.G. sculpts sweet melodies and skipping rhythms, wrapping them in clouds of crunchy bass weight. The resulting music is irresistible and nocturnal – tailor made for solitary bus rides home from the club, when the electricity of the dancefloor still fizzles in your chest, but something quieter and more contemplative starts to settle in.
It’s a feeling embodied by the self-designed 8-bit graphic artwork for A.G’s most recent EP, ‘donotdisturb’, which boasts some of her most striking work to date. ‘dolittle’ is a chiming future garage cut a lá Jacques Greene, which dazzles like a Mario Kart racecourse and soars on the sounds of skittering samples, flute-like keys and strings. ‘always, you’ and ‘attention seeker’ are ethereal drill cuts that wrap their cold, pressurised beats in blankets of melodic atmosphere.
