Fans of Fokuz and Celsius are well familiar with the name Bert H over the past few years. Appearing out of thin air a few years back, Bert has been consistantly releasing a wide variety of quality drum and bass music spanning the full spectrum of the sound. With such quality output, Fokuz head man Dreazz and Bert came to the conclusion that the only logical next step was an album.
Representing a collaborative collective of immense DnB power, Fokuz Recordings’ founding father Dreazz aka Marco Grijsen is bringing his Rotterdam-based underground label to Bristol this June to launch a new night from Bristol DJ and longtime promoter Sam Hiscox. He’s already been involved with the brilliant Liquifyah collective for the past five years, and is hoping to continue to push ‘intelligent, forward-thinking drum and bass music’ with his new Threshold nights.
Fokuz Recordings’ Eighty Eight: This is Fokuz is the labels newest Various Artist compilation including remixes by Spectrasoul, Technimatic, Break and original tracks by label regulars Anthony Kasper, Satl, Mutt, The Vanguard Project and Silence Groove. Forthcoming near the end of June on CD and 12” vinyl formats.
We’re proud to present the Better World LP by powerhouse duo Macca & Loz Contreras. With their classic Liquid Funk inspired sound the Leeds/Portsmouth based duo have built a steady reputation as DJ’s and producers pursuing the more soulful end of the Drum & Bass spectrum. No bombastic kicks and snares here. They tend to stay true to their uplifting ethos through reworking iconic soul samples into danceable feel good grooves underlined by natural-sounding breaks that roll with ease.
