--- PREDITAH ---
Nathan Gerald, better known as Preditah is a Grime/Garage music composer and DJ from Birmingham, West Midlands.
Preditah’s exciting and creative production style has put him at the forefront of the new generation of producers/DJs emerging from the UK and has been for the last few years. Preditah's breakthrough track was 'The Big Wok' which was noticed by JME (Boy Better Know). Once he started screaming his name, it wasn't long until the rest of the Grime scene and beyond witnessed just how talented Preditah is.
Most widely known for his incredible production on the international hit single “On My Mind” with Jorja Smith on her critically-acclaimed 2017 album “Lost & Found”, the track has made his infamous producer tag recognizable worldwide.
With Five instrumental EPs under his belt (Solitaire EP, Eightsome EP, Circles EP, Red Bull EP & Gears of Grime EP) and a ton of remix work, it is quite impossible to listen to the radio or go out clubbing without hearing one of his tracks blazing through the airwaves or tearing down a dance-floor!
Apart from producing music, Preditah also regularly DJ’s up and down the UK and Europe, demonstrating to clubs and promoters that he is just as comfortable DJing as he is at composing music.
