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.

Robert Owens & Tone Control – Starting With Me (inc James Johnston remix)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2012 by E.N.

Tone Control return with house music vocal legend, Robert Owens for a steppin’, bass led mantra for the dance floor. Tone Control bring in soulful house star, Sean McCabe on Moog, Rhodes and Organ to complete “Starting With Me”. Working the analogue delays, “Stuck On Loop” is a dark and serious dubbed out excursion. Glaswegian producer, James Johnston has been making big waves for vinyl loving, deep house heads recently – he turns in a heavy chorded, bumpin’ dub remix to complete this new single, the 12th release on Tone Control Music.

Tone Control are Marcus Harris and Simon Finnegan. The British production duo have been progressively releasing their own brand of electronic soul for over 6 years appealing to house music and leftfield DJ’s alike. Following the release of their critically acclaimed “Illusion” single, much lauded by Theo Parrish and Kerri Chandler, the duo have gone on to find wider appeal with their smash “Take Me Away” ft. Adeola Ranson and “Without Your Love” ft. James B. Coleman – remixed by DJ Spinna and played by DJs globally including ‘Lil Louis and Kenny Dope.

Robert Owens has played an instrumental part in defining House Music history. Robert was already DJing in Chicago when he met Larry Heard to form Fingers Inc. with Ron Wilson in 1985. Their output included “Bring Down the Walls”, and the monumental “Can You Feel It”. Robert’s subsequent solo releases, led to the classic “Tears” with Frankie Knuckles & Satoshi Tomiie in 1989. Worldwide chart success followed in the 90’s with “I’ll Be Your Friend”. Robert was cited as “The voice of house music” by Mixmag. Since then Robert has worked with an incredible list of influential artists including Photek, London Elektricity, Sandy Rivera, Coldcut, Quentin Harris, and recently Tevo Howard and Kai Alce to name a few. His recent LP’s for Compost Records demonstrate his continued inspiration and artistic longevity, maintaining his reputation as the man who breathed life and soul into House Music.

Cinematic – Sleepers EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2011 by E.N.


CINEMATIC
‘SLEEPERS EP’
Label: Icon Recordings // Release Date: 7/11/2011
Cat No. // ICON002

1. Cinematic – Chain Reaction (5:09)
2. Cinematic – Jungle Nights (4:25) Listen below
3. Cinematic – Sleepers (5:30)

The boys are back and after the launch of their imprint Icon Recordings (with support from the likes of John B, London Elektricity and Doc Scott to name a few), Cinematic are releasing their first EP this November. Putting their strengths to full use, the EP is packed with soulful, intimate, but still highenergy moments, making this a real treat.

With the combination of rolling drumbeats and stylistic synths, ‘Chain Reaction’s crackling power
practically sets the dance floor on fire. Linking from one high to the next, Ed and Rupert’s harmonious
personalities shine through, bringing ‘Chain Reaction’ to life.

Combing classic and contemporary drum and bass ‘Jungle Night’ takes a darker and more intimate turn than Cinematic’s previous release. Its hearty sound is individual and personal, showing these champion sounding duo’s remarkable production skills.

Bringing yet another new Cinematic sound to the table, ‘Sleepers’ has an acute introduction that’s met with elegant female vocals, creating a thrilling and gripping down tempo track. It’s remarkable, simplistic sound doesn’t indulge and is effortlessly crafted – making you want to listen over and over.

These two are definitely ones to keep an eye on into 2012…
