‘Wassup’ is the outcome of a spontaneous studio session by Bristol comrades Gardna and Selecta J-Man in the closing months of 2020 – a year widely regarded as a rollercoaster for everyone. Although long-time friends, the pair linked up for the first time on a single release to kick off the new year by bringing something a little different to the table.

'Wassup' is a track with a message. The lyrics are a call out for everyone to check in on their mates and their families, now more than ever. Gardna delivers a positive spin on the turbulent times we are going through and urges his listeners to check in on one another more regularly. Selecta J-Man shows us his versatility as a producer by cooling down from his signature Jungle / Drum & Bass sound and giving us this reggae bubbler, kicking off a new side to his forthcoming releases this year. The release also sees Gardna linking up once again with the ever-glowing Charli Brix, following the success of their collaboration on Gardna's debut long player ‘Good Time Not a Long Time’. Brix's infectious vocals shine through and take ‘Wassup’ to a place where sing-a-long crew are present in the dance hall. Glasgow resident Tom Spirals stays true to his country's traditions with a bright and beautiful flute line to round things off for their first releases of 2021.

All proceeds are being donated to Tonic Music for Mental Health.
