Talking to RIDE Music about his production work, S-X said “It’s pretty insane to be honest. I’m most proud of Lil Wayne, just because that’s someone I grew up listening to and I always knew I was going to do it. I made it my mission. So to actually do it was a proud moment for sure.”

Grime for Time

Not only has S-X helped create some iconic hip-hop beats, he’s also responsible for a number of hard-hitting grime bangers. Working with some of the UK’s most respected artists like Skepta, JME and Jaykae. S-X is without a doubt a talented producer, but working with all of these artists has also helped him craft his own unique solo sound. “I put out my first song in March 2017 as an ‘artist’,” S-X told RIDE Music. “Since then it’s just been a fun ride of not taking it too seriously until now really. I knew I had a lot of growing and learning to do, which I feel as though I’ve done now. So now for me, it’s more about taking it to the next level which is exactly what I plan to do.” 

S-X’s ‘True Colours’ tour is set to be a big milestone in the young artist’s career, don’t miss your chance to catch him before he inevitably achieves superstardom!
