Fields & Villem – Kyros

Released 12th February 2018

The forthcoming EP on CIA, Field’s ‘Intention Dub’, highlights the eclectic mix of artists who have joined the roster since its first release. Featuring a variety of collaborative producers, the six-track EP exemplifies the talented intricacies of Fields and his masterful song compositions. The names that run alongside Fields stand out within their own right, with underground stalwarts Mako, and McLeod, roller top dog Break, frequent partner Villem (who go under their pseudonym Mute) and Forren, who also makes an appearance. As a collective, they represent many of the artists who helped CIA build their impressive back catalogue.

Having closely followed his music since day dot, we are very pleased to welcome Xtrah to Dispatch for a debut solo release, the highly anticipated ‘Disturbance EP’. Coveted for his own distinctive twist on the techier side of drum & bass, Xtrah’s technical skill is unrivalled, but his impeccable control sets him out from the crowd; taunting and playfully manipulating sounds, even amongst the darkest, most sinister of vibes.

Building up a serious back catalogue in recent years, he has blessed Dispatch with some memorable, yet cameo roles to date, most recently with ‘Direct Approach’ alongside DLR for our first ever Dispatch Dubplate 12. The ‘Disturbance EP’ is his biggest release with us so far and is well worth the wait, including six original tracks, that have blown us away right from the off; all of which have been a staple of Ant TC1 sets in recent months.

Mako & Andy Skopes – The Mercenary

Skankandbass returns to London for their second event, 8th March 2017. Attend on Facebook: http://bit.ly/SNB2-FB

For Dispatch’s first main label release of the year, Mako takes us into the next century, following the Dispatch 100 album with an aptly name release – ‘The 101 EP’. Leading on from his ‘Back To The Source EP’ in 2014, Mako has been a huge favourite of ours, effortlessly engulfing everything we love about the past and the present, with a distinctive ability to create raw, incredibly authentic music, with a vibe that hits the emotions just as sweetly as the bottom end pressure hits your chest.

At the helm, the EP is led by a mighty track, in ‘The Mercenary’ alongside Andy Skopes, having caused some serious damage since its inception, littered by tough breaks and searing lows. An endemic character of Mako’s music and the rugged beats continue right through the release, including the serene amen journey ‘Looking Back’ and the super tight drum programming of ‘A Break From Suspension’.

Total Science’s infamous CIA Records label turns 20 this year! To celebrate this pretty bloody momentous occasion, the guys have decided to release an album featuring tracks from some of their favourite artists and friends of the label – and as everybody loves them because they’re so sick, the album is sick too!

The LP will come on double vinyl containing 8 tracks, with a further 7 tracks digitally making up a nice big package. On the vinyl there’s a dancefloor-hurting contribution from Break with his beast of a roller ‘Unification’, Calibre returns once again with some dubwise styles in the form of ‘The Trot’, and S.P.Y also makes a welcome return to the label with his upfront system-testing piece ‘Be Strong’. If this wasn’t enough to make for a killer LP, Total Science team up with Digital & Spirit, and FD, Mako, Chroma and Villem, McLeod & Hydro all give their own typically flavourful input to the project.

In addition to this, there are also several digital tracks as part of their big package. Zero T & MC Conrad provide a great dancefloor friendly VIP of their track ‘Morning Sex’ and Spirit brings the techno vibes with his track ‘Riser’. And with the project wrapped up with further excellent contributions from Ed:It and Murdock, alongside label regulars Nymfo, Quadrant & Iris and The Invaderz, it seems just the right way to say Happy 20th Birthday to Total Science’s CIA Records!
