One evening, at some awful party in East London, no doubt at an ungodly hour, and after more than one small sherry, SugaJack and the almost-enigmatic Clyma were introduced. Initially, the signs weren’t good. He said ‘tomarto’; and he said ‘tom-ato’.
And lo and behold. Clyma and Sugajack had soon given birth to ‘We Are…’ – a bouncing bassline-fuelled slice of choonage. Tiny ghetto label Better Get Records snapped it up faster than a crocodile on a baby’s arm.
What do SugaSmak stand for? In their own words…
SugaJack: “Me being the Suga, the soul and him being the Smak, the beats and grit of the project. Being smaked in the face with a little suga.”
Clyma: “A celebration of individuals. The juxtaposition of two completely different people from two different walks of life.”
