Motto Disco 08: Sully

Long before the UK garage revival kicked in and “future” garage had even been dreamt up, Sully began finding a space between 2step’s swing, dubstep’s edge and breakstep’s drums, all underpinned by the rude spirit of jungle. While he has preferred to keep a relatively low profile and remain around the peripheries of the quick hype, quick decay climate of the burgeoning bass music scene, his music has found a sense of permanence, the longevity of which speaks volumes of his talent.

His debut album, Carrier, is out now on Martin Clark’s Keysound Recordings

When we first moved to Berlin in summer 2008, we imagined many things were ahead of us. In December 2011, Motto Berlin has turned 3 years, and to celebrate this we’ve asked friends, collaborators and people we admire to put together mixtapes with the idea that they should be played within the context of Bookstores. Stay tuned as this is the start of a collection of unexpected and versatile encounters. Enjoy!
