Wrongtom signs to Tru Thoughts

By | Published on Friday 17 February 2012


Producer and CMU favourite Wrongtom has, as the above headline goes some way to indicating, joined the Tru Thoughts roster for a series of ‘vintage dancehall collaborations’, the first of which will be a partnership with fellow Tru Thoughts signing Deemas J.

‘Wrongtom Meets Deemas J’, as the album is so aptly titled, will mark the second in a series of ‘Wrongtom Meets’ LPs, the first having been 2010’s Big Dada released ‘Wrongtom Meets Roots Manuva’.

Says Wrongtom of the new deal and project: “When I think of Tru Thoughts, I think of a grass roots business, which is what makes them the perfect label for this project. It’s an honour for us to join the TT gang”.

He adds: “This is a very special project for me as Deemas and I have been playing together since our teens, so an album is well overdue. We’ve covered a multitude of styles, taking in my love of dusty old dancehall and dub, and linking it with Deemas’ experience in the jungle arenas and his lineage in London’s soundsystem scene”.
