Mako & The Hawk -“The Devil Made Me Do It”

Mako & The Hawk take you back to a time when breaks were funky and rappers knew how to rhyme for a massive double dose of fresh original boom-bap. With beats forged from previously un-sampled (and legally cleared!) vintage funk breaks and emcee Chima 'The Doctor' Anya delivering lyrical wisdom, “The Devil Made Me Do It” and “Strut Your Stuff” are a pair of block-rocking jams to turn any party out!

Since forming in 2009, the pair have had vinyl and digital releases on Breakbeat Paradise, Freestyle Records, Funk Blasters and Tour of Booty, garnered frequent radio plays on Craig Charles' BBC 6 Music ‘Funk And Soul Show’, supported the likes of JStar and The Bongolian and held down a never-less-than-packed seven year long residency at Mr Wolf's in central Bristol.

Maxim - Respect

Maxim fires the opening shot on new label Death Drum Rebel with 'Respect'. A heavy bassline and a reggae skank means that right from the outset, this one means business.

Death Drum Rebel will play host to the Prodigy front man's new musical output, with releases lined up for the rest of the year and beyond with a heavy focus on Maxim's love of Drum & Bass. There is also some extremely special guest vocalists in tow. Watch this space.


BMotion - Eutopia / Release Valve

Released: 4th Nov 2016

Hailing from Wales in the UK, BMotion is one of Viper Recordings’ freshest and most eclectic talents. Signing exclusively to the label in 2014 and dropping his debut single ‘Feelings / Something, Something’ on sister label Viper VIP to huge success, the talented young producer has already gained momentous support from the likes of TC, Cyantific, Sub Focus, Matrix & Futurebound, Crissy Criss, Danny Byrd, Metrik, Netsky and many more.

Over the last two years, BMotion has become a respected name in the industry and has consistently brought the heat with releases such as the Beatport chart topping ‘Bear Hug / Vice City’ and ‘Arabia / Ignition’ in 2015. Alongside compilation features including ‘Discotheque’ with Chords on Decade of Viper and the huge ‘Tekken’ on Viper Presents: Summer Slammers 2016, BMotion has also proved his remixing skills with his spin on Brookes Brothers feat. Majesty’s ‘Good To Me’ – which featured on Viper Presents: Bassrush 1.0 alongside the well-received ‘Ignition’.

Tyke - Dream Catcher [Playaz Recordings]

Tyke is already a Playaz mainstay. Signing exclusively in 2013, he has released 4 EP's with the label, not only that, but earlier this year, Tyke undertook the mammoth task of remixing Potential Badboy's massive hit 'Revolution'. The remix gained support from Friction on his BBC Radio 1 Show, but Tyke is no stranger to this kind of backing from Drum & Bass's A-List though. Names like Hazard, Jumping Jack Frost, Nicky Blackmarket and even Andy C have all played and supported his music.

'Dream Catcher', Tyke's 5th EP on Playaz Recordings, expertly sweeps across a wide spectrum of influences to bring you a truly special collection of tunes. From Bassline to Jump-up, Jungle to Liquid and even a splash of Garage, Tyke takes you on a musical mission around the many sounds of the dancefloor. Long-time Hype collaborator, Daddy Earl also makes his presence felt on the EP, along with Yisrael on the title track.

Playaz yet again invest in exciting young talent in the Drum & Bass scene to amazing effect. But what else would you expect from such a ground breaking brand.
