This year has been crazy for me so far, so I thought I would choose 10 Grime tracks to sum up the last 6 months and 15 Butterz moments.

Pitchfork Feature / 01012010 Mix - This kicked the year off, giving us a huge amount of exposure for our releases, radio show and the producers we worked with. 6 months on it has done wonders for all of our profiles and the mix has over 15,000 downloads, big up Martin Clark!

Prague - Such a massive day, and they have continued to have Grime acts over regularly since such as Rude Kid, Black The Ripper and Dot Rotten, it is important for artists and DJs to be doing shows wherever they can, as some have a really hardcore following in Europe.

Fact Magazine Mix - Another mix that spread all over the web within a week or so, and won us a some new supporters, I think it premiered the Terror Danjah & Joker - Gully Goon Estate as well.

The Heatwave v Butterz - Grime & Dancehall on Rinse FM - This kind of stuff should happen more often, a mash up of styles, I have one definitely in the pipeline with the Hessle Boys, hold tight.

Bipolar EP / Air Bubble Remixes - First release on our label, and 60+ remixes because of our open source Grime idea. Hard work, but a lot more to come, it just takes time, big up everyone that is supporting these and other releases we have pushed like SRC, Swindle and Terror Danjah's releases.

'Bare Places' - A video from a busy February DJ wise, big up all the promoters that have had us at their nights so far, we appreciate it a lot, Grime is a dirty word!

Glasgow - Best show of the year hands down. Big up the Glasgow gang

Sidewinder debut - First show we have ever done with MCs, Badness & Bruza jumped on set. Badness in a Mexican Wrestling mask! Strange fun times! Was good to meet Royal T for the first (and only) time as well!

May Mix - Brought back a few old school tunes for this, if you haven't downloaded it, grab it now.

June Mix - Was originally recorded to promote the #Veryveryepic rave, then was used for a Nike campaign courtesy of Mixcloud.

Dublin - Another brilliant crowd, wicked people really enthusiastic about the music (you will be how many surprised how many promoters who are not that into the music!)

#Butterztv5 - We started uStreaming last October live DJ sets from my bedroom, and this is my favourite one of them all, Swindle guested.

Rinse FM getting a license - I found out while in Barcelona and I couldn't believe my eyes. Im so happy as a fan of the station for it to be legit now, and as a DJ it is another exciting prospect to be on a legal station for the first time. Maximum respect to the management and all the people that made this happen!

Barcelona - E P I C

An all round incredible experience, I cant really some up in words, had some life changing conversations saw epic performances from some of the UKs finest and DJ'd alongside an allstar cast.

Here are a few pictures that some up the whole trip for me, even though I didnt take many!

I started receiving tunes from him about a year ago and over the last 6 months he has progressed really quickly and I believe he is one two look out for in the second half of this year. Check the mix of his latest tracks and remixes below.

So tell us a bit about yourself, I have been receiving tunes for about a year from you, what were you doing up until that point?

I've been producing for around 7 years, mainly as a hobby. I've gone under a couple different aliases, Merlin, Unique. I won a producer competition with RWD mag back in the day but never really had the belief to do music. So I went to university to study media production, after doing that for a year I realised that I couldn't not follow my heart any more so decided to choose music as my career path.

You did a couple of instrumental mixtapes as well right? Where you always writing Grime or where you just doing whatever?

I brought out an instrumental mixtape called dirty sheets, basically consisting of a few of the beats I had made up to that point. I've always been making grime, occasionally strayed into hip hop production but I've been supporting grime since its birth and its the music I enjoy making the most. I find it hard to stray far away from 140bpm.

SRC - Lemsip (Mr.Mitch Remix) FREE DOWNLOAD by Mr.Mitch

Interesting you mention tempo, you tried making Grime outside of that 140bpm comfort zone yet?

Well I do have tunes which vary in tempo but the majority of them go from 135-142. Even when I make tunes at a much slower tempo its still has my same style and feel to it. I made a tune the other day actually that speeds up to 160 at the end, I sent it to Skepta and he wanted it on his album.

Skepta - Badboy (Mr.Mitch Remix) by Mr.Mitch

Sick, so at the moment is it looking like you are going to have a couple of tunes on his album? And that is all off the back of the Bad Boy Remix?

I made the remix when he sent out the accapella and then sent it to him via twitter. He liked it and wanted to use the beat for a song on his album. I've been sending him beats since then and last week and sent him another one that he wants to use so its all good.

Terror Danjah - Air Bubble (Mr.Mitch Remix) (Free Download) by Mr.Mitch

Have any other MCs reached out to you yet? What other ones would you like to work with?

I haven't had many big names come to me yet asking for beats. But I would really like to work with JME and D Double, when I make music aim to create songs and I think JME really knows how to make a well constructed song and D Double is just my favourite mc and a legend so who wouldn't want to work with him.

Mr.Mitch - Fright Night (SRC Remix) by Mr.Mitch

Over the past 6 months you have really got into the remixing along with SRC, Swindle, Terror Danjah etc how do you think that has effected your production skills?

I find remixing really inspiring, as it forces me to try out different methods of editing/production. Every time I open logic I try something new so I don't get stuck in a rut. So sometimes remixing really helps me when I get stuck for inspiration.

Mr.Mitch - Skittles (Forthcoming Butterz) by Mr.Mitch

Finally 'Skittles' will be your first track on vinyl! I got the test press on Friday its sounding nice! Are you planning to release more music yourself or via other labels in the near future?

I've got a four track e.p coming digitally on subdepth records, I've also got a remix for Numan getting released on vinyl for the same label. I'm currently holding a competition to remix my track fright night, and I will release the best ones alongside my one digitally on my own label.
