To round off what has been a massive year for Ten Ton Beats, TTB’s man in charge Rekless wanted to round it off with a release that would cement this fast moving label as the forward thinking deliverer of quality dance floor DnB that it has become known for.
This EP employs some of the biggest talents that have passed through the doors at TTB, names such as Manga, Dangerous & Samy Nicks have all contributed to this project that has been in the making since the label started almost 3 years ago. Newbie’s to the roster Noise Lab and Peddla have both offered up huge mixes to introduce themselves to the dnb & drum step masses.
This EP is based around the vocals of a very well know MC/Vocalist Jay Tuns. Jay has worked hard over the years gaining huge respect on the battle MC scene with an unheard of 104 wins and no losses on the battle circuit, with that arena conquered Jay took the risky move of moving into live band work rather than the usual grime scene that most Mc’s of his calibre would have done.
This proved to be a shrewd move as Jay now tours the world with the likes of Dub Pistols and The Ben & Lex live show who feature names such as Rodney P, Million Dan and Earl 16, as if his schedule wasn’t full enough he has found a new love for all things DnB and has recently caught the attention of Bio Beats Fatman D who has been made him a full member of the Biological Beats gang.
Jay has also been made a resident MC for Exeter’s premier Drum and Bass night ‘Rinseout’. This project got under way when Jay sent Rekless a few tracks he was working on a couple years back seizing the opportunity Rekless asked if he could use the hook to one of the tracks ‘Addicted’ as he knew it would lend itself well to dnb, it took a while but with the addition of the Noise Lab & Peddla mixes this EP has been brought bang up to date with all artists going back in on their original mixes, the idea was although the sample is the same, every track must bring something new to the listening experience which we at TTB think we have achieved………..WITH BELLS ON!!!.
From Noise Labs no nonsense high tech tearout, to the crossover potential of Peddla’s Drumstep stomper, coupled with the Jay Tuns hypnotic bars this EP has a mix to please Ravers, DJ’s and everyone in between. Ten Ton Beats ends 2013 with the way it wants to start 2014……….WITH A MASSIVE SLICE OF MERKINGTON PIE!!!!
