Utopia Music label boss Mako is gracing Warm Communications again. He always brings something special to his releases when appearing on warm & this is no exception. “For Love Or Money” features long time friend to Mako “Section 63” who also part of dnb outfit The Sect. Uplifting intro alongside a female vocal build up the a-side to a heavy drop into rough breaks and punishing bass. Just how we like it! On the flip the aptly titled “The Shot Off” is a 2 step chugger perfect to set any dancefloor off while “How Do You Feel?” has that mysterious vibe Mako can pull off so well! Another diverse & refreshing release from one of the scene’s tastemakers.

London based Dexta (Chris Royle) has been releasing music over the past three years on labels such as Dispatch Recordings, Flexout Audio, Hospital Records & None60 not forgetting a few features on Diffrent Music already. He has also put out collaborations with the likes of Arkaik, Hyroglifics, Mtwn & Mauoq and so on.
This debut artist EP for Dexta sees a variety of sounds and styles, made up with music that has been in production for the past couple of years along with fresh tracks that were nailed over the last few months and even this year. “Flaming0” (named while having a curry and beer with friends) is a great example of Dexta’s desire to bend the mould a bit, off the grid rhythms, analog synths resampled and layered in with a tense break filled ending. “Secondlife” started in 2014, although sounding more like 4012, simple drum machine beats, acid baseline, sharp effects and rumbling bass, this is one for the head nodders! “Dissolute” a collaboration with Coma last year, sexy vocals, interesting tonal basses, that Hip Hop swing on the beats with a load of added goodies. The title track “SE4 (The Ends)” named after the postcode of Dexta’s Lab, is a nod to the old school era (with a modern touch), dramatic intro, chunky breaks, large bass and loads of stop/start action.
SUBSISTENZ follow up their widely acclaimed Current Value & Maztek release of Feedback Echo // Declock with another powerful statement in combination with neurofunk and tech dnb’s most symbiotic Master of Ceremonies – COPPA.
Delivering 4 tracks at the highest production level from an impressive array of artists including CURRENT VALUE, AGRESSOR BUNX, L 33 and MACHINECODE backed by Coppa’s vocal intensity, DEFCON 1 lands a heavy-hitting statement of intent.
