BLU MAR TEN
Few musical acts can lay claim to such dynamic and consistent evolution as Blu Mar Ten.
Formed in the big-bang of 90′s drum & bass and regular faces at Rage, Metalheadz, Speed & AWOL, Blu Mar Ten were rapidly spotted by LTJ Bukem and signed to Good Looking Records, cementing their position in the genre as originators of complex, atmospheric music.
They quickly grew and mutated beyond the confines of the jungle into lush experimentation with downtempo, ambient, house, breaks, techno & left-field for labels such as Naked Music, TCR, Guidance and Big Chill, with another two full albums of non-d&b material on Exceptional Records.
Returning to drum & bass, Blu Mar Ten released a string of tracks on Hospital Records, Med School, Renegade Hardware, Shogun Audio, 31 Records, Tangent and many more.
2009 saw the establishment of their own Blu Mar Ten Music label with the Natural History album project. The LP delivered an incredibly wide range of drum & bass tracks from the deeply abstract to the unashamedly dancefloor, all bearing Blu Mar Ten’s trademark stamp of quality and augmented with remixes from Klute, Seba, Stray, Bop, Kastle & Badmammal.
In 2011 Blu Mar Ten delivered the album Love is the Devil achieving widespread critical acclaim and chart success. 2012 saw a series of remixes from Love is the Devil featuring dBridge, Marcus Intalex, BCee, Sunchase, Joe Syntax, Unquote & Sincopate.
As well as working on their new album and maintaining a busy international DJ schedule, Blu Mar Ten are now opening Blu Mar Ten Music to a host of fresh young talent emerging from the leftfield of Drum & Bass.
