This summer, Blu Mar Ten follows up the success of their 2009 LP 'Natural History' with a two-part set of remixes that bring together the finest in fresh and established talent from across the globe.
DJ support is coming in from right across the scene, including London Elektricity, Friction, Doc Scott, Lynx, John B, Nookie and many more
Continuing his high-speed ascendance, d&b's new kid on the block, Stray, justifies the hype with his superb rendition of 'If I Could Tell You'. Hammering the original components into a richter-scale headnod, the aggression of his beats is beautifully offset with a subtle yet umissable reinterpretation of the bassline. Sounding completely different to virtually anything else in the genre, Stray's irresistible remix has been waking up sleepy clubs all over the world, and must now rank as having one of the highest "what's-this-tune-m8?' ratios on the circuit right now.
Few musical acts can lay claim to such dynamic and consistent evolution as Blu Mar Ten.
Formed in the big-bang of 90's drum & bass and regular faces at Rage, Metalheadz, Speed & AWOL, Blu Mar Ten were rapidly spotted by LTJ Bukem and signed to Good Looking Records, cementing their position in the genre as originators of complex, atmospheric music.
They quickly grew and mutated beyond the confines of the jungle into lush experimentation with downtempo, ambient, house, breaks, techno & left-field for labels such as Naked Music, Guidance, Big Chill, with two full albums of non-d&b material on Exceptional Records.
This new material saw Blu Mar Ten gain support from DJs such as Tom Middleton, Rennie Pilgrem, Pete Tong, Felix da Housecat, Ben Watt, Carl Cox, Lee Burridge, Erol Alkan, Howie B and Mary Anne Hobbs.
Blu Mar Ten also remixed a series of major and independent artists, including Erykah Badu, Annie Lennox, Alicia Keys, Terry Lee Brown Junior, Jakatta, The Ananda Project, Doc Scott, Fink and Blame; and have in turn been remixed by Tom Middleton, Cicada, Fink, Rennie Pilgrem, Terry Lee Brown Jr, Nor Elle, Sabre, Blame, Social Security & Kubiks
In 2005 Blu Mar Ten returned to the drum & bass scene, with the next 18 months producing a string of releases on labels such as Hospital, Renegade Hardware, Shogun Audio, 31 Records, Tangent, Phuzion, Vibez & Basement.
2009 saw the release of the 'Close' and 'Believe Me' EPs, and Blu Mar Ten's long-awaited first full drum & bass album, 'Natural History'. The album delivers an incredibly wide range of drum & bass tracks from the deeply abstract to the unashamedly dancefloor, yet all bearing Blu Mar Ten's trademark stamp of quality.
DJ support for Blu Mar Ten's new material has been pouring in from right across the d&b family tree, leaving you in no doubt at the trio's position at the forefront of the scene.
