UV boi came on our radar while surfing our Soundcloud stream a couple of months ago. Emmanuel John, an 18 year old Sudanese boy from Brisbane, Australia is behind this brand new musical phenomenon known as UV boi. The name stands for Ultra-Violet, something you hear quite often in the tags that cover his tracks. It was created out of spite during a conversation between him and Tomas Appleby, a photographer friend of his who took all the photos featured on his Soundcloud

His organic growth within the underground music scene is quickly evolving, and it does not surprise us one bit. Making music came about when he started playing around in Windows XP’s movie maker, just chopping up songs, making mash-ups and mixtapes for fun.  His based style can be described as mellow yet heavy hitting 808 music. Having listened to a diverse range of genres since getting into music, his style covers R&B, Hip Hop, Techno, Hardstyle, Trap, Jersey Club and everything related to the new wave of un-classified sub-genres. 

This 60min set definitely takes us to some URL emotional realm. When we asked him to take us through his process of making this Podcast for IX Daily, here's what he had to say: 

I tried to fill the spectrum with the music I like. Starting off with a hip hop drum break followed by a remix of a G-Unit track by Cooking Soul. Gradually it begins to move towards of a electronic selection with tracks from Subsurge and Silkersoft. You'll catch an unreleased UV demo track in the mix too. The mix then drips into the Swedish music scene with music from the Sadboys, the Gravity Boys and collaborative track with me and Swedish producer GRXGVR. Finally concluding with collaborative tracks with my good pal DEER from Melbourne, Australia and my vocalist friend Fionn Richards.
