• Outlook returns for its 7th season on the stunning Croatian coast
• The festival takes place from Weds 3rd – Sun 7th September 2014

Outlook Festival returns to Croatia this September after last year’s best ever event to date, a celebratory fusion of dub, reggae, hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass, garage, house and more on the dazzling Adriatic coast. Joining the dots between musical legends right through to the next generation of up and coming talent, again some of the finest live acts and DJs descend upon a 19th century fort for five days and nights of amazing music. Close to the historic city of Pula in Croatia’s northern region of Istria, the now iconic Outlook sets the agenda with a world-class array of performers in a collection of truly spectacular locations, set in and around an abandoned fort. Choose from a dungeon, a courtyard, a moat, a boat, the beach or the festival’s main stage set on a harbour. Outlook combines a heady mix of fun in the sun and under the stars as a dedication to sound culture, which has just revealed its first wave of names.

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)
