DEXTA & MAUOQ X KOLECTIV X MEDIKA - LIMBO [CLIP] - NBR006 - OUT NOW by Nurtured Beatz Recordings published on 2014/07/11 12:46:15 +0000 The self titled EP from Dexta & Mauoq perfectly encaptures the duo’s hybrid sound and style. Chris Royle aka Dexta; co-founder of Diffrent Music has been putting his own unique twist on the genre from producing his own tracks solo and collab; to releasing idiosyncratic talents on his own imprint. You can see the broad spectrum of influences Dexta has outside of drum and bass reflected in the distinctive beats that he conjures up. Mauro Campana Aka Mauoq originally from Rome, Italy who now lives in London, UK has had a love for drum and bass music since the mid 90’s. Having always pushed the deeper side of drum and bass his passions and tastes have developed into the more minimal side of the genre. “Less is more”. Having dabbled in production at a young age, it wasn't till 2010 that he started taking his talents seriously releasing his first track in 2011. Since then he's had a number of quality releases all supported by the games biggest names. Dexta and Mauoq’s collaborations have made a massive impact on drum and bass. By not sticking to the ‘norm’, combining the talents and influences from each others lives and backgrounds they’ve managed to create consistent powerful music that is distinctive to the pair. Constantly shaking up the scene with their unique ideas while gaining support from some of the biggest contributors. The EP contains 4 tracks ‘Labbit (Giraffe Dub)’, ‘Limbo’ featuring Kolectiv & Medika, ‘Krave’ and ‘The Chump’ featuring long time veteran Genotype. Each track explores a different element of their combined journey's so far as artistic producers, yet keeping a very clear theme and narrative within. With the added additional production from Kolectiv, Medika and Genotype influencing two of the tracks on the EP its a well rounded combination of collaborations that we will definitely see more of in the future. Accompanying the record is an experimental down tempo track which will be available as a free download called 'The Prequel (Chump Dub)’.
