about

JT The Goon is a grime legend, but you might not know that.

An early member of Slew Dem crew, he produced 'Gunman Riddim', one of grime's all-time classics and the genre's first popular use of the Korg Triton's amsfeedbacklead preset, which became one of its trademark sounds. After some time in the wilderness, JT returned in 2012 with a newfound hunger, releasing free EPs, sending music to DJs that orbited London's Boxed clubnight like Oil Gang and Slackk, and finding fans in contemporary producers like Murlo and Rabit (both of whom have collaborated with JT.)

JT's music combines grime's raw power with the rich melodies that he's mastered in his 10+ years developing as a producer. It evokes classic Westerns and martial arts movies without ever losing sight of the fact that it's first and foremost a grime record, and as well as the amsfeedbacklead that JT helped popularise, draws from a range of Korg Triton sounds that are at the genre's heart. Equally respected by grime veterans and its new breed, this is one of the genre's best operating with authority.
