already having success releasing on some of modern days most seminal labels, we are very happy tohave mako part of the label. hailing from bristol uk, mako brings a very raw and energetic spirit to his production. whatever whatever co written with good friends villem & fields is a razor sharp roller capturing that bristol, jungle vibe perfectly. i used to be like you is makos first solo release. a cinematic, tribal, half time affair complete with steppy drums and growling bass.
founded only 3 years ago by mako, the utopia music imprint has already made a positive impact on the drum & bass scene with a stable of innovative producers. next up on the release schedule is a massive tenth release in the form of utopia 10.the a-side sees a mighty collaboration between label owner mako, break, fields and villem. with all these guys on the track, you know the bar is set high. dont let the chilled beginnings of dilligence lure you into a false sense of security because you will soon be smacked around the head with a bassline that is verging on psychotic and beats ready to bring down anything that stands in the way. on the flip side, russian producer getz carries on where they left off with the rolling, relentless basslines of my soul. i love how the vocal samples lend a feeling of despair to the music.
it is team time again as we issue yet another huge collaborative effort from some of the scenes most accomplished producers and biggest names. dis070 draws together the collective powerhouse force of dlr, hydro, villem, fields, mako and linden over two tracks to provide an outing of gigantic proportion, individually each producer within their own right is more than capable of delivering the goods in solo work mode, so imagine the results you would get from locking them all up in a dark studio room together for hours on end to channel their combined genius! well the result of that scenario is right here and is everything and more you may expect it to be.
cia records is an imprint who has remained at the centre of drum & basses history, with esteemed producers total science creating it during the genre’s formative years in 1997. the forthcoming ep on cia, field’s ‘intention dub’, highlights the eclectic mix of artists who have joined the roster since its first release. featuring a variety of collaborative producers, the six-track ep exemplifies the talented intricacies of fields and his masterful song compositions. the names that run alongside fields stand out within their own right, with underground stalwarts mako, and mcleod, roller top dog break, frequent partner villem (who go under their pseudonym mute) and forren, who also makes an appearance. as a collective, they represent many of the artists who helped cia build their impressive back catalogue.
utopias 16th vinyl single brings label stalwart break into the fold once again for a hard hitting roller that has been getting reactions all over the globe since it got leaked into the top djs hands. the a side teams up the symmetry boss with utopia label honcho and recent metalheadz addition mako, with his long term partners fields and villem. the production and weight are unreal whilst retaining a woody rather than plastic aesthetic.
