bbe is proud to announce the release of influences vol. 2, a compilation album and dj mix showcasing a selection of dj markys favourite music, created with a healthy disdain for genre-puritans and an emphasis on fun. taking in traditional brazilian music, disco, acid jazz, early house and of course a little drum & bass, influences is more of an invitation to a barbecue in the são paulo sunshine than a chin-stroking back to mine selection.
ahead of the release of forthcoming debut artist album my heroes, brazilian drum & bass pioneer dj marky has announced he is to first release vinyl-only double aside single silly / its a long ft. makoto. lead track silly sees a hazy, whimsical vocal layered over markys signature acoustics and relaxed brazilian groove - a playful introduction that nods his jungle roots. b-side its a long - ft. japanese drum & bass dj makoto - ups the tempo with stirring, echoed piano chords and frenzied percussion - an ode to the sound thats made him one of the worlds most respected dj/producers
deep in the long dark winter of 2012 / 2013 dj marky combined forces with longtime friends the invaderz with the idea of bringing some sunshine to what was one of the harshest seasons in recent memory. having returned from a drum and bass sabbatical the invaderz reconvened in their north london studio with plans for a well deserved return to d&b having spent the last couple of years working along side various other projects, like dego, bugs in the attic and confronting various mental health issues and living in canterbury. on some rare downtime from tour marky joined them and the result is plain to see here. two giant slabs of warm home cooked vibes. needless to say the support from all sides of the community has been overwhelming. just feast your ears upon the tunes to hear for yourself. let the sun shine on.
the final instalment of the innerground album sampler singles features two of the heavy hitters in the production stakes in recent times. the tried and tested combination of dj marky & makoto has brought many a dancefloor to its knees, whilst new addition, t>i, has shown he has the mettle to dice with some of the biggest names in the game.
nine years on from their debut release, innerground records, the label set up and run by acclaimed dj and producer dj marky, is set to celebrate its landmark fiftieth release. having been home to a slew of top quality releases over the years from the likes of random movement, calibre and s.p.y to name just a few, the imprint are marking the singular occasion with something very special indeed.
what better way to mark this special occasion for the label than two classic marky productions that epitomize the quality and timelessness that both he and the label command. heres to the next 50.
after the stunning ep release that was >rush hour ep<, innerground is happy to welcome back one of its favourite sons, makoto. makoto is a veritable legend of the scene, not only in his native japan, but across the globe. his ability to lend his skills to almost any kind of beat alongside any other producer is world class. it is alongside our very own dj marky that makoto has found some of his best form, and we have encapsulated it here into one coherent and compelling vinyl vision.
the final chapter of vonstrokes limited vinyl album remixes features some seriously low end.
remix #1 is one the favorites of the entire project. claude met brazils dj marky on an artist bus at a uk festival last summer and gave him the track >aundy<. he asked him to do a mix and marky and his friend s.p.y. turned in this amazing drum n bass version. numerous artists have been dropping it even in the middle of house sets! it really captures the drum n bass feeling of the original track taking it back to the genre which inspired it.
remix #2 is from our up and coming bristol based bass prodigy, julio bashmore. he takes on >california< the co-production by cvs and j phlip to another level, adding smooth low end bukem style bass drops and shimmery vox/pad programming to the already insane track. bashmore is one of the few new breed of uk producers who cross over all the way from house to dubstep.
many will know of zincs stature in the word of dnb, from classic tracks such as >casino royale< for tru playaz, to a series of hits for his own label, bingo beats. now, reincarnated in the house genre, zinc has asked dj marky and fellow consort s.p.y. to remix one of his latest and greatest club anthems, >wile out<. with ms dynamite on vocals, the original has been doing some serious damage on the circuit, and the dnb refix by marky & s.p.y. is something truly special. due out in july on innerground records, this will be an exceptional addition to any self-respecting djs record box.
marky is considered to be one of the greatest djs on the planet. world citizen, he set up house in sao paulo, the brazilian capital of electronic music and has since crossed the boarders of over 50 countries spreading his feel-good brazilian flavoured brand of drum and bass.
big in the clubs, this release has already gained massive support from all the big dogs in the scene from andy c to annie mac, this is sure to be another massive release for marky & s.p.y and the digiboy camp.
