// INKSWEL
And the beat don't stop.... Former b-boy and ‘drum machine obsessive’ Inkswel has laid the foundation for something refreshing, heavily rooted in his hip hop upbringing, it was the dance itself that inspired him and led him into different territories and vibrations- eventually being inspired by all types of soulful music. Inkswel first popped his locks downunder in Australia, where he began life as one Jules Habib, but his cosmopolitan outlook on music and life has taken him places, of late: he’s now as at home in Berlin and Amsterdam as in Melbourne and Adelaide, all cities where he has put in studio time.

Having collaborated with Tableek, Reggie B, John Robinson, Steve Spacek, Mark De Clive Lowe, Dave Aju, Chico Mann, Gary Davis, Andras Fox, Merwyn Sanders, Paul Randolph of Jazzanova, Eagle Nebula and countless others. Inkswel is hip hop in his foundation, but genre-less in his outlook and approach, embracing the soulful side of deep disco, 80s funk, chicago house and uk broken beat into a colourful melting pot. He looks to timeless visionaries such as DJ Spinna, Kenny Dope and Rich Medina as the inspiration for his craft.

2016 marked the release of his debut album on the ‘beat generation’ famed label BBE Records. After already being asked to do a retrospective re release of his past works for BBE in 2015, they then pushed Inkswel to do an original debut album, in the form of UNITY 4 UTOPIA, a collaborative visionary concept record featuring guest vocalists such as Steve Spacek, Tableek of Maspyke, Crazy P, Misumami, Dave Aju and producers and musicians from his musical network such as Mark DE Clive Lowe, Lay-Far and Recloose. The album traverses the gaps of all beat based music, touching on Hip Hop (his first love), Disco, Funk, Soul, House and Jazz. The vinyl version of the album was co released by Berlin’s famous OYE RECORDS store and quickly sold out after its release in January, even being featured on VINYL FACTORY’S releases of the month.

The last few years have seen him touring Japan, playing in Sendai, Marioka, Akita, and Tokyo, and returning to tour Europe for the third time, playing vinyl-only sets at Alexander Nut of Eglo Records Quarters Night in Hackney, Mutant Disco in Estonia, Patchwork in Switzerland with Sassy J, Bradley Zero's Rhythm Section party and Lowkey in London, Wild Renate in Berlin, Horse Meat Disco, the Denis Simachev bar in Moscow, and at Rush Hour's in-store party as part of the Amsterdam Dance Event alongside Hunee and Kid Sublime. He headlined the LACO Festival in 2015 in Sao Paolo Brazil and then played alongside disco luminaries SOUL CLAP & TOM NOBLE at their OUTPUT residency in New York. Known for his genre bending sets, with a no holds bar policy- incorporating all genres in a hip hop pastiche style to make people dance and experience new sounds and vibrations.

2013 saw the launch of his own label Hot Shot Sounds (distributed by DC boogie label PPU), the initial release featuring a new track with Reggie B, and a b-side jam from his partner-in-crime Freekwency. The label then followed up with the much-acclaimed Cloud-Eaters EP, a collaboration with Merwyn Sanders of house legends Virgo Four, and backed by remixes from contemporaries Linkwood and GB. That one topped both the Juno and Rush Hour charts and featured as vinyl release of the week in Fact Magazine. HOT SHOT sounds has since gone on to release underground high quality releases from Paradise Box, Quaid, First Touch, Kid Sublime, Sugarz, APSD and countless others- with a heavy release schedule planned for the future. The latest release by newcomers APSD from melbourne features collaborations with Fat Freddys Drop and Miles Bonny.

The future is bright for Inkswel, with 6 new releases already scheduled for 2016, including concept projects, singles and even disco edits for labels such as Soul Clap and KAT. An upcoming remix project of italian based group THE MIXTAPERS on Sonar Kollektiv (Jazzanova label) featuring Illa J and Frank N Dank, sees him remixing the entire EP from start to finish and enlisting new collaborators such a mc’s LMNO and Blurum13 and the famous flutist Han Litz from Amsterdam to re create the EP with the distinct ‘Inkswel' sound. Inkswel is also in the studio full time this year, planning to release his 2nd album before the year ends under the alias Super People.
