Mako Announces LP Oeuvre on Metalheadz
Stephen Redmore, known through his drum & bass alias Mako, is
finally set to unleash his forthcoming LP on Metalheadz, something which
he’s been working on behind the scenes for some time. The label head of
Utopia is well known for his slick production and penchant for
underground anthems, something which has been seen again and again on
his own imprint, as well as across a plethora of labels which have acted
as pillars for the drum & bass world. Having already made his
presence felt before within the catalogue of Metalheadz, as well as
Break’s Symmetry Recordings, Dispatch, Soul:R and Samurai Music, he’s a
valuable part of the genre’s make up, which is why the announcement of
his forthcoming LP ignited widespread anticipation.
translated to ‘a body of art’, Mako’s LP ‘Oeuvre’ is representative of
his life’s work in music production. The switching breaks of
‘Heartstone’, slamming, yet eerily hollowed snares of ‘Offline’ and
grinding bassline of ‘Life Cycle’ alongside the late Andy Skopes, a
testament to the legacy he left behind, set the tone. Meanwhile, Villem
and Fields join Mako for the LP’s next collaboration ‘Liquid Groover’
before the emotive swelling build of ‘The Window’ gives way to a second
drop beat switch up, continuing the journey. ‘Flip it’ has already been
doing the club rounds, as the moody Photek atmospherics of ‘One Reality’
and more affectional twists of ‘Holding You’ adds to the tracklist’s
Scenic Values’ underscores Mako’s love of Krust and Doc Scott
production grooves, whilst the experimental soundscape of ‘Hoxton Home’
heralds back to old Lemon D. ‘Oh Really’ finishes the album’s more
club-orientated offerings, which follows with a 170bpm techno style
track via ‘Passive Aggressor’. ‘Oeuvre’ is a walkthrough of Mako’s many
personalities as a musician and it finds a welcome home within
Metalheadz’s historic discography.
