Tactus recorded a 300 second mix for BBC Radio 1‘s Introducing show with Jen & Ally. It has one track from every ABAGA Records release, and begins and ends with an unreleased Tactus track.
Label boss Tactus heads our latest free release, with two of his own tracks and two collaborations with MAKO, offering dark, deep and bass heavy dance music.
The labels’ 39th release is presented by two like-minded producers, coming together to find new ways in which to meld styles, experiment with sounds and snare placement, whilst retaining melody and emphasis on sub frequencies.
The debut EP from The Mighty Cream has turned out to be a good one, and its free! We’ll be launching the EP at Nu-Fire in Sneaky Pete’s (Edinburgh), so get yourselves down there for 11pm on October 22nd if you’re in town! Click here for the Facebook event.
Sinister flute with brooding basslines is what to expect from ABAGA Records’ forthcoming free release. The Mighty Cream‘s debut EP consists of a track with contrasting dark and light parts that lead to a pounding culmination of merciless bass sounds, and two remixes picked from a barrage of entries to their remix competition: JZR, with his spacious slower skank, and Skoshki, with a dark, growling variant, using chord sweeps that add a light at the end of the tunnel.
More music to come from this nascent duo, so keep your ears to the ground for this lot.
Second free EP on ABAGA Records by Manchester-based producer MAKO is a long awaited banger!
MAKO brings his second EP on ABAGA Records with tasteful use of bass: Dark and broody, with dubstep leanings in the opening tracks and an uptempo crunchy sound with the closing track, this EP is a new chapter in this innovative producers’ journey.
Our remix competition winner DanieL Bazz brings us a bass fueled techno house remix of The Mighty Cornelius’ “The Black Meat”, with an ingenious use of a vocal sample as a hi-hat and atmospherics that give a claustrophobic and dark feeling. The B-side “Ace” is an equally intense track, with a groove to get any dancefloor moving.
Tactus was recently interviewed for San Diego based radio show Solipsistic Nation.
