Blu Mar Ten announce new album ‘Famous Lost Words’

Blu Mar Ten  new album 'Famous Lost Words'Blu Mar Ten
‘Famous Lost Words’
(Blu Mar Ten Music)
Release Date: 18th November 2013

 

After establishing their own label, Blu Mar Ten Music, in 2009 and releasing the critically acclaimed albums ‘Natural History’ (2009) and ‘Love is the Devil’ (2011), winter 2013 sees the arrival of Blu Mar Ten’s highly anticipated new LP, ‘Famous Lost Words’.

Featuring 13 tracks of pure and unapologetic drum & bass, the album inhabits a similar territory to the previous two; full of emotional movements fused with tough beats that reinforce BMT’s position in the genre as originators of complex, atmospheric music.

 Brooding dancefloor destroyers like ‘Ariel’ and ‘Holding Pattern’ deliver rugged basslines and harsh drums, contrasting beautifully with the more fragile and otherworldly soundscapes of title track ‘Famous Lost Words’ and ‘Night Shift’. ‘Big Shots’ and ‘Motor City’ serve up frantic layers of euphoria while ‘Remembered Her Wrong’ wanders off into the bizarrely abstract.
‘Famous Lost Words” 71 minute duration also features an impressive roster of collaborators. ‘Thin Air’ layers the alluring vocals of Robert Manos atop a bed of whirling synths and rolling bass. Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Agné Genyté injects a dose of soothing lullaby tones into ‘Somewhere’, ‘Break It All Apart’ and ‘In Your Eyes’, while long-time friend and label mate Seba makes an appearance on ‘Hunter’ whose growling bass and Bladerunner synths play to the strengths of both artists.

 

 

Accompanying the ‘Famous Lost Words’ project is a set of live dates around Europe. Beginning at pivotal label/club night, Hospitality in Bristol, the mini tour then travels to the likes of Russia, Germany, Ireland, Finland and BMT’s native London.

 

Track List:
1. Somewhere (feat. Agné Genyté)
2. Hunter (feat. Seba)
3. Big Shots
4. Famous Lost Words
5. Thin Air (feat. Robert Manos & Yosebu)
6. Holding Pattern
7. Break It All Apart (feat. Agné Genyté)
8. Half The Sky
9. Remembered Her Wrong
10. Motor City
11. Night Shift
12. Ariel
13. In your eyes (feat. Agné Genyté)

The new jewel in Bristol’s crown, Motion re-opens its doors in October for another season of the highly-charged and hugely loved ‘In:Motion’ series.  Still reeling from the success of last year’s sell-out autumn events, 2011 sees them come back bigger, better, stronger, louder with the hottest electronic acts of the moment gracing the infamous Bristol ramp skate-park, turned rave haven. 
2010 marked the birth of the In:Motion series when the Bristol based promoter team joined forces with the countries most esteemed music brands, bringing with them the finest talent of the underground music scene to the West Country. Creating a succession of unparalleled parties, each one delivered a mind-blowing night of sensational sounds and immaculate production placing In:Motion firmly on the musical map.   As a slew of fresh and talented artists continue to bubble up from the beating heart of Bristol such as Julio Bashmore, Redlight, Eats Everything, Baobinga, Waifs & Strays, Bowski, just the last year alone, the city continues to draw attention and attract producers and DJs from outside. Everyone wants a piece of the sounds and skills that are evolving in the West Country’s musical.
Bristol’s renowned musical heritage, coupled with the strongest brands in the country has resulted in some of the most highly innovative and respected musical programming out there. Those who’ve devastated the Motion dance-floor last year, triumphantly return: Hospitality, BLOC, Annie Mac Presents, Bugged Out!, Run and local heavy-hitting party starters Shit The Bed and Just Jack who collectively brought with them High Contrast, Claude Vonstroke, Simian Mobile Disco, Jamie Jones, DMZ and Joy Orbison.  Joining the In:Motion fold for the first time bringing more interstellar acts to the table throughout the autumn season, we welcome Hessle Audio, FWD Rinse, Field Day Night, Jamie XX, local boys Futureboogie XL, Blowpop and Invisible Circus.
As a venue Motion is carving itself out to be one of the most exciting and unrivalled clubs around. Now nearing festival-calibre this year, they expand into yet more areas of the huge sprawling skate park creating a warren of separate spaces all hosting their own unique party. The raw confines bore witness last year to the magic of man of the moment Seth Troxler in the main Skate Park, Roska and Untold in the Tunnel, Tensanke lighting things up in The Cave with the addition of the stunning Waterside Terrace providing the perfect backdrop. Now with things being pushed even further into the double warehouse as well as outside in the car park which comes equipped with food court, heated seating area and photo-booth, you can let yourself get lost in Motion’s wondrous world of entertainment and outstanding music. Check out everything that Bristol has to offer on RA’s Real Scenes series HERE
