‘GWz All The Way’ is the highly anticipated debut album from the future dancehall duo Ghost Writerz. The longplayer showcases the range, the invention, the heart and the fire in this talented pair’s unique mix of bashment, hip hop, jungle, reggae and dub. Pioneers of the UK’s very own Sound System Music, GWz create supernatural, soaring bass music infused with conscious lyricism, melodic hooks and virtuoso live instrumentation. Adding extra magic to the duo’s vision, ‘GWz All The Way’ features a host of guests; the inimitable voice of Rodney P, the revered flow of Serocee and a host of other features from RTKal, Amy True, Jago (onlyjoe) and more.
The core GWz duo is producer Harry ‘Sleepy Time Ghost’ Metcalfe and vocalist (and producer) Jason ‘Jimmy Screech’ Bradshaw. Both are proudly part of the Unit 137 Sound System family, while many will also know Bradshaw from his Jimmy Screech days which saw him tour internationally in Roots Manuva’s Banana Klan and earn serious acclaim for his solo LPs. Metcalfe has lately been making waves with the soulful “Feel feat. Bahia” single under his Sleepy Time Ghost moniker, and he recently masterminded the Ghost Writerz Remix of Quantic’s “Spark It feat. Shinehead” which was hailed as a junglist anthem by Vice’s THUMP.
It has been a massive six months for Ghost Writerz (GWz) since signing to Tru Thoughts to spearhead the label’s Sound System Culture platform, Sharp And Ready. Their first two singles hit home with heavy play across BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra; live radio features with Toddla T, Jamie Rodigan (BANG FM), Lukan De Legend (Déjà vu) and Resonance FM; plus diverse support elsewhere from Ras Kwame, Tom Ravenscroft, Steve Lamacq, Huey Morgan, Goldierocks, Clash, Radio Nova (France) and many others including props from Mercury winners Young Fathers on their Solid Steel radio show.
