DESCRIPTION

Following releases on Redlight's Lobster Boy Label & Breach's Naked Naked Imprint, Mak & Pasteman return with their own label, Materials.

Reflecting the texture in their music the first release is a 3 track EP spanning various influences, building on the palette of sounds they have developed over the past few years.
"Jam One" see's the duo venture into emotive synthesised house drawing from the darkness of their Drum & Bass influences right into the sounds of Detroit & Chicago.

"Formation 131" removes any expectation of conformity leading directly into a heady break layered over dark atmospheric textures. The track builds on deep subs & distorted 808 hits juxtaposed with the dark emotion of early Jungle.
"Stagger" begins ominously layering chords and filtered piano stabs over solid drums gradually building in a trippy synth line, from here we get the low end basses & tight production we have come to expect from Mak & Pasteman.
