KCHE x THE FORCE Collab 14/05/2020


KCHE are incredibly proud to announce the release of ‘HEAD TRIP, FEEL GOOD’ a collaboration between our BA (Hons) Creative Top-Up student Will Swiers (Psych) and our industry renowned tutor, Jay Garrett (The Force).

…this release is an exciting one for me! After teaching music production for 15 years, and launching loads of great producers on to their respective scenes, this is the first time a track I’ve made with a student has been released. Big up Will aka PSYCH, definitely one to watch! – JAY GARRATT, HE TUTOR, DJ & PRODUCER


Will started studying with us on a Level 3 Music Production course 5 years ago. He has stayed with us and worked his way through the HND Creative Music Technology onto his final year, the BA (Hons) Creative Industries Top-Up. Will has worked closely with his tutor throughout this time, Jay Garratt (aka THE FORCE) spending his time learning how to make different types of electronic music and now he is ready to begin his career as a D&B Producer & DJ.


THE FORCE (aka Jay Garratt) is a Drum & Bass Producer and DJ who has over ten years of release history under his belt. In that time THE FORCE has produced music for DJ Silver’s Nemesis Recordings, D*Minds ‘Stereotype’, J Majik’s ‘Infrared’, EZ Roller’s ‘Intercom’ and Micky Finn & Aphrodite’s ‘Urban Takeover’ and ‘Shakedown’ imprints, to name a few. During this time THE FORCE has enjoyed DJ support from many of the scene’s leading heavyweights, including Andy C, Grooverider, Hype, Ed Rush & Optical, Bassline & Drumsound, DJ Fresh, DJ Hazard, Adam F, Crissy Criss, Roni Size, DJ Die, Krust, Twisted Individual, Nicky Blackmarket, London Elecktricity and TC.

“Already responsible for classics such as the seminal “What Happens Here” from 2006 and “Hallucinate” from 2017 its always a pleasure to welcome back one of the labels original don’s and Jump Up legend The Force to Calypso Muzak. Another “One of Our Own” who we have know for many years and love releasing music with.

Another bonus for this release is that Jay, in true Jedi Master style has brought his real life student and another welcomed label debutant Psych in for this mission.

Its fair to say that together they have combined to deliver two heavyweight dance floor destroyers that are guaranteed to have the ravers pulling all kind of screw faces. A perfect blend of catchy call and answer riffs and current gnarly tones this seems to us to be a perfect combo!

They also tore it up on the decks together recently at a Straight Out The Lab takeover night so we have a feeling you will be seeing more from these pair.”
