Having spent more than seventeen cross-genre years featuring on dance music’s most prestigious imprints, Blu Mar Ten are opening the doors of their own label to a host of fresh young talent emerging from the leftfield of Drum & Bass and beyond.
Blu Mar Ten Music (BMTM) is a home for the beautiful and the ugly, the elegant and the awkward, the euphoric and the melancholy. With a growing list of talent delivering a rollercoaster of emotions and armed with a desire to stand out rather than fit in, BMTM is rapidly becoming a label to watch.
The fourth release in this new chapter is bought to us by the brand new Slovakian duo, delPurr & Eraser.
delPurr & Eraser debut on BMTM with two slices of beautiful, otherworldly dream & bass.
Drawing heavily on the tradition of dark, Eastern European children’s stories, Fairytale fuses mutated high & low vocals with dreamlike pianos and a warping bass. Layers of lush, soundtrack synths layer themselves over the tune like giant cobwebs in a dense forest of clockwork percussion. Fairytale is a magical blend of the bittersweet, the disturbing and the sophisticated.
Reminiscent of Eno’s ‘Apollo’ era, Imagine’s sub-Hawaiian stylings and push-pull breathing of its rhythm sections could easily be the soundtrack to a new moon landing. Lethargic yet precise piano motifs are answered by equally languid guitar lines and underpinned by an oozing, liquid bass. A barely existent percussion section supports the whole fragile structure that threatens to vanish if you try and grab it too hard.
Fairytale & Imagine are a perfect demonstration of Drum & Bass’s capacity to deliver elegant, cinematic music that exists outside the mainstream club environment and we’re proud to host this stunning debut from these exciting young producers.
