Myx then went on to release his first production album “The Q Overdue” independently as a limited edition soft release featuring a number of recording artists and remixes and gaining him more recognition as a talented emerging producer at the time. Myx also received particular support from BBC Radio 1 for his promo track on which he rapped and produced “Make It Happen” which was a featured record for some months on their website thanks to Ras Kwame’s “Home Grown” show.
