Erik L also worked with artists such as Frank n Dank, Kissey Asplund, Dynamite MC and Hezekiah to name a few, creating a buzz in the underground scene and on sites like 2dopeboyz and Okayplayer etc. His song Soul Symphony was ranked as one of the best beats of 2009 by Benji B of BBC Radio, who have been playing Erik's stuff frequently in his shows. On Display is mixed by Devastate, a talented Swedish DJ that released his debut album on the legendary English label BBE Records.
