Wifey 010: Badga Tek
One of the founders of legendary Leeds based club night ‘Ruffage’ and the newest member of the Wifey crew, mixtape number 10 is an absolutely killer selection of garage classics from Jim Wright aka Badga Tek.
Ruffage ran from 2006 to 2010 a and is remembered today as one of the most important platforms for the then nascent dubstep scene. Jim ran it alongside the founders of the Hessle Audio label – responsible for some of the most forward thinking music from the UK over the past five years – and together they got some of the best lineups in recent UK club history.
A few years back we were lucky enough to catch one of Jim’s rare garage sets, and asked him if he’d be interested in contributing to our as then non-existent mix series. It only took two years of begging, pleading and bribes to extract this from him, but we’re happy to never have given up on him because this mix is pure bumping garage gold dust end to end.
