Buy the Mob Tactics remix – http://bit.ly/2H0mfR9

Years in the making, the forthcoming LP on Charge Recordings has been something of a fable, with label head Mampi Swift taking his time in perfecting one of their biggest projects to date. With the album standing as its most defining output, it’s no surprise that a drum & bass pioneer like Charge’s kingpin would ensure the finishing touches were water tight before its release.

With support garnered already by tastemaker Rene Lavice at BBC Radio 1, the first forthcoming single from such a greatly anticipated package already sets its benchmark. Featuring Mampi Swift, as well as promising newcomer Arnone and a rework of heavyweight collaboration ‘Play Me’ from audio annihilators Mob Tactics, it’s a double-sided single which firmly states the album’s intentions. Aptly named ‘History to Future’, it embodies everything the label has stood for since it was engendered, showcasing artists both old and new for a full spectrum view of what Charge has built over decades.
