Back in 2007 a young Bullion released a mixtape called Pet Sounds: In The Key of Dee which immediately pricked the ears of many a taste-maker the world over who were rightly impressed by the young producers talents which saw him re-imagining both the Beach Boys and Dilla on one mixtape.
The following year he released ‘Get Familiar’ on One-Handed Music, which was one of the biggest tracks of the year, and leant a hand in shaping the then emerging beat scene. Since then Bullion has had a handful of critically acclaimed releases including the recen one-sided etched 12" ‘You Drive Me To Plastic’ on Young Turks.
Now he is preparing to release his debut album You Drive Me Plastic also on Young Turks. The nine track album looks set to be Bullion’s most experimental work to date and is another testament to the young producers versatility and diversity.
Here is a one of our favorite Bullion moments from the past.

You all know how much we love Ahu here at Electronic Beats. We have been fans of her work ever since her early releases with the likes Flying Lotus, Mr. Beatnik and Soundspecies whilst not forgetting her recent works of wonder with Grooveman Spot. Her Paul White produced debut single ‘To:Love’ and her forthcoming album is going to be released by One Handed Music later this year.
In fact it’s already been a great start to 2011 for OHM with nominations for Best Label award at The Worldwide Awards with Ahu also being asked to play at the event hosted by Gilles Peterson.
So to celebrate, One Handed has kindly offered free remix of the track online. The remix comes courtesy of Tightface, an OHM associate, and is a dark, moody, low-slung version of the original. A must basically.

Ahu’s debut To:Love is available via OHM and is out now.
