Data Transmission Exclusive Mix: Ena

One of the most exciting new additions to the prestigious Samurai Music roster, Tokyo's Ena has crafted a sound entirely his own, opening doors into dark, experimental planes of music. A major player on the Japanese underground scene for over a decade, his forward-thinking productions, for the likes of 7even Recordings, Samurai Horo and CX:Digital, permeate the edges of drum & bass, becoming something more, something raw.

His debut album, Binaural, is due out through Samurai's Horo imprint - a breeding ground of innovative producers such as ASC, FIS and Sam KDC - on October 27th. Promising to move further into "uncharted sonic and rhythmic territory," the album offers harsh textures and grim, organic beats, often put together with found sounds. In a interesting and unique move, the tracklist for the vinyl 2x12" LP is totally different from its CD and digital counterparts, with 12 totally separate and exclusive tracks. The CD tracklist has already been revealed, however we've secured a first look at the LP release.

This mix is full to the brim with dusty, extraterrestrial atmospheres and obscure percussion, let Ena induct you into the way of the Samurai!

Track list:

01. ASC &S am KDC - Rebuilt_From_Nothing (Auxiliary)
02. ENA - Squash (forthcoming Samurai Horo)
03. ENA - Deluge (forthcoming Samurai Horo)
04. FelixK - Flower Of Destruction (Hidden Hawaii)
05. Dan HabarNam - One (Cylon)

Total Science - So Addicted

RELEASE DATE: 10/13/2014



A legendary duo who need no introduction. Total Science make their debut on Warm Communications in fantastic style. "So Addicted" sees the group bring on vocalist Grimm with a powerful, uplifting piece of drum & bas beauty. One the flip Total Science have remixed the jungle/ half time affair "Putting Down Roots" originally brought to you by Bristol's Villem & Mcleod. A unique jungle stomper executed to perfection.

UTOPIA MUSIC w/ Break, Mako, Fields, Villem & Chromatic

Utopia Music 16

out 29.10.14

A. Break, Mako, Fields & Villem - Shadowlines
AA. Chromatic - Found You  

Utopia's 16th vinyl single brings label stalwart Break into the fold once again for a hard hitting roller that has been getting reactions all over the globe since it got leaked into the top DJ's hands. The A side teams up the Symmetry boss with Utopia label honcho and recent Metalheadz addition Mako, with his long term partners Fields and Villem. The production and weight are unreal whilst retaining a woody rather than plastic aesthetic.

The flip sounds like a Lenzman classic but instead is brought to you by rising stars Chromatic. Growing in confidence, they have recently been releasing on Hype's Playaz label and are producing quality dance floor bass lines without the need for the screechy mid range bass that has become so prevalent in modern drum and bass.  Warm bass, beats and keys and no need for much else.
