FOKUZCD015 / 15 Years Of Fokuz (2xCD)
Fokuz Recordings, founded early 1999 by Dreazz and Drum Origins, has been through a lot over a long, winding road. Thanks to the boundless dedication of our talented artists and the loving fans, we can now celebrate our 15th anniversary! Over a period of three months we’ll release six 12” records and a double CD packed with tracks by new talent and established names in present day drum & bass.
We have the mighty Lenzman delivering effortlesy with a fresh, smooth take on ‘Rock Steady’ by Command Strange. London based outfit Reds come correct with ‘Meraki’ and drop bombs with ‘Showtime’. Their diverse production makes them stand out from the pack although these particular tracks leans more towards a more classic liquid funk sound. Malaky brings the sweetness with ‘Connected’. Heavy delayed chords, spacious strings and vocals in combination with a warm bass make this an absolute beauty! ‘With U’ by Moscow based Impish turns up the heat. Don’t let the groovy intro fool you because the drop comes in unexpected! After taking a break from production, Fokuz Recordings head honcho Dreazz teams up with Emery on ‘Things’. Vintage stabs, reverberating vocals and rolling drums make this a collaborative effort that’s already an essential purchase for D&B fans of a more chilled persuasion. All in all an exquisite collection of drum & bass that we are very proud off. On to the next 15 years!
