SHEFFIELD'S SILVA BUMPA UNVEILS DEBUT EP "WHAT ABOUT THE DJ?"


Silva Bumpa
Silva Bumpa, the emerging sensation in UK Garage, makes a bold statement with the release of his debut EP, "What About The DJ?" on Locked On Records.

Drawing inspiration from Northern nightlife, the Sheffield-born artist combines UK bass grit with the infectious bounce of club classics, capturing the nostalgic essence of mid-noughties bassline with a contemporary twist.


"What About The DJ?" showcases Silva Bumpa's innovative production style and feel-good musical approach across five tracks. The previously released title track sets the tone with wobbling basslines and raucous flair, while singles like "Without U" featuring Megan Wroe and "Songs of Praise" with grime MC Capo Lee explore different facets of UK Garage. The EP's focus track, "Passion," offers a glimpse into the house side of Silva Bumpa's production, reminiscent of early 2010s Disclosure. Reflecting on the EP, Silva Bumpa expresses;


"Releasing 'What About The DJ?' on Locked On Records is a dream come true. With this EP, I aimed to blend various genres, infuse heavy sampling, and deliver crunchy grooves that would make every listener feel the music in their core."


To celebrate the EP release, Silva Bumpa will host a special live show at East London's Village Underground on May 31st, featuring Megan Wroe performing "Without U" live for the first time. The event promises to be a memorable experience for fans of UK Garage.


"What About The DJ?" marks the beginning of an exciting journey in the UK Garage scene as Silva Bumpa's dynamic fusion of genres and infectious grooves set him apart as one of the genre's most promising new talents, destined for even greater heights in the music industry.
