Ruff Sqwad's DJ Scholar has died.
News of the pioneering grime DJ's passing broke on Tuesday 7th December. At the time of writing, the cause of death is unknown, and the deceased's family has not yet issued a statement.
DJ Scholar's death has been met with outpouring of emotion from across the UK music scene, and specifically the London grime community.
Bok Bok has launched a new mix series, titled Essentials, that will explore the “different aspects of his personal club music universe”.
The first volume features a selection of slower tempo tracks that attempt to answer the question of “how to rave at 105bpm”, according to the press release.
Tracks come from Fade to Mind’s NA, Chicago house legend Lil’Louis, Night Slugs’s Helix, Erykah Badu and more.
Bok Bok released a collaborative 12”, ‘Papaya Lipgloss’, together with London producer Sweyn Jupiter last year.
