Blu Mar Ten – ‘Famous Lost Words’ – Blu Mar Ten Music
After establishing the label ‘Blu Mar Ten Music’ in 2009 and releasing the albums ‘Natural History’ (2009) and ‘Love is the Devil’ (2011), winter 2013 sees the arrival of Blu Mar Ten’s new LP, ‘Famous Lost Words’.
Featuring 13 tracks of pure and unapologetic drum & bass, the album inhabits a similar territory to the previous two; full of emotional movements fused with tough beats that reinforce BMT’s position in the genre as originators of complex, atmospheric music.
Brooding destroyers like ‘Ariel’ and ‘Holding Pattern’ deliver rugged basslines and harsh drums, contrasting with the more fragile and otherworldly soundscapes of title track ‘Famous Lost Words’ and ‘Night Shift’.
‘Big Shots’ and ‘Motor City’ serve up frantic layers of euphoria while ‘Remembered Her Wrong’ wanders off into the bizarrely abstract.
Famous Lost Words’ 71 minute duration also features a collection of collaborators. ‘Thin Air’ layers the alluring vocals of Robert Manos atop a bed of whirling synths and rolling bass. Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Agné Genyté, injects a dose of soothing lullaby tones into ‘Somewhere’, ‘Break It All Apart’ and ‘In Your Eyes’, while long-time friend and label mate Seba makes an appearance on ‘Hunter’, whose growling bass and Bladerunner synths play to the strengths of both artists.
