He was first found on Tru Thoughts (whilst signed to the superb Ninja Tune) on the Shapes One Compilation with a track called Back To The Wig. Expect Hint’s ever evolving style to keep you guessing and wanting more. His first solo release on Tru Thoughts, The Tremmuh EP is a vastly different, more dancefloor orientated style to his last album. November 2007 saw the release of Hint’s second EP on Tru Thoughts, At the Dance.
This foot stomping 12” shows a mix of dub-step, hip hop and big bass lines whilst retaining his classic down tempo style. In July 2008 Hint released his first full album on Tru Thoughts, Driven From Distraction. The album is a mix of instrumental and vocal tracks. Hint explores the eclectic styles of music that have excited and inspired him over the years – from hip hop to electronica, fiery soul to straight up dancefloor bombs – whilst pushing boundaries for a new, unique sound.
Stunning guest vocals are provided by long-time collaborator Laura Vane; the prodigious teenaged MC Rizzle; and Tru Thoughts and Zebra Traffic label-mates Kinny and Rup.
