Ten Ton Beats is the brainchild of Dj Rekless, affiliated to the New Breed crew and ex partner in the massive Cyntax Error record label responsible for the discoveries of super producers Doctor P & Trolley Snatcha (known back then as Soundz destructive) not forgetting the jump up legend Dj Manga adding Mattix and Futile (currently signed to Crystal Clear’s Cold blooded record label) to the mix whilst still remembering Raw Theory ( now signed to Matrix & futurebound’s Viper Records) as testament to the attention to detail Rekless employs when signing acts to his record label.
TTB started way back in 2011 it’s been 2 years of hard graft and sticking to the label ethos of fresh talent first that has got Ten Ton Beats this far. Currently on the roster and making massive waves in the world of dnb and included on the epic album are acts like Dangerous, Samy Nicks & Rekwest, MarX, Dusty, Manga, Mr Alf-E, Black Howlin, Locked, MarX, Miss Melody.
Label head Rekless is of the opinion that it’s all about the music not the ‘name’ which is way he decided to celebrate 30 releases with an example of just that. The quality of Dancefloor based carnage on this rewind guaranteed LP cannot be denied on this 11 piece collection of skanktastic riddims. From the Dj’s favourite’ Out my head’ (Mr Alf-E feat Thunda B) to the half tempo Launch by BiteMe this LP is designed to show the buying market that just because you may not recognise the name that does not mean that the music is of any less quality in relation to its ability to instantly make you give it the gun finger salute and immediately brockout. The Bangers only LP cements Ten Ton Beats as a force to be reckoned with in the world of the drum and bass record label. And an indication of what’s to come from this fast moving home to all things bass heavy and fully dutty.
