JD. Reid is the lowkey brilliant North London producer whose powerful new Calibrate EP, out now on Rinse, featured Kojey Radical, 808INK, Oscar Worldpeace, Hodgy from Odd Future, and Novelist. A strong line up if we ever saw one. The release emerged back in July, and followed up his D Double E featuring 2016 debut io EP, as well as production work with various artists including Mabel and what is arguably her greatest single, Finders Keepers.

To celebrate the end of a summer that had its ups and downs but was ultimately not bad in terms of soundtracks, JD has made us a bassy mix that goes hard and fast. With a heavy and very welcome dose of his own works (that Kendrick rework from his EDITS + BEATS VOL.2 release rules), the mix is as eclectic as the selector, making Ivy Lab, Dizzee, Gaslamp Killer, Rox FOE, and Lil Uzi Vert seem like one big happy family.

"When I started the project, there was not a clear plan," JD has said of his recent EP, "but the goal was to make sense of something abstract - and that, by definition, is to calibrate." Sounds to us like he's gone and done it again. Happy Friday!
