Featurecast (Lee Mintram to his mum) dropped his debut album on Jalapeno in 2012 with a serious seasoning of top vocalists including Greg Blackman, high flying UK bluesman John Turrell, Hospital Records D&B vocalist of choice Pat Fulgoni, plus Alaska MC, C. Reid, Dynamic and Pugs Atomz dropping urban science whenever and wherever required.
Prior to signing to Jalapeno, Featurecast has released on a variety of happening labels like Bomb Strikes, Good Groove and Catskills as well as Funk Weapons in the US and the burgeoning Ghetto Funk label in the UK. One of his early productions was even snapped up by Apple to promote the IPOD – yep those ads with the silhouettes dancing round – that was our boy.
His DJ sets are the stuff of legend and he regularly tours North America and Australia where his brand of bass fueled turntablism is in serious demand. Featurecast has crafted his own unique sound combining amazing pinpoint scratching whilst effortlessly cutting between Funk, Hip-Hop, Breaks, Dubstep and Drum & Bass.
He’s dazzled the crowds of some of the biggest festivals and venues around the globe with Canada’s legendary Shambhala festival being the scene of one of his biggest triumphs. Featurecast has shared productions duties on previous releases with legends of the bass scene like Krafty Kuts and house heavyweight James Zabiela (who credits Lee with teaching him to scratch) as well as remixing everyone from Aretha Franklin to Finley Quaye.
