Ten Ton Beats longest serving warrior Dangerous is returning to TTB after a long break. Dangerous returns with a heavy weight banger of an EP called the Greedo EP,with an all star cast.
On the Greedo EP, we have guest appearances from artists such as Nightbreed (Ram records), as well as the mighty Dj Manga and not forgetting new wave producer L-Ectric, not forgetting his long time friend the legendary Mc Foxy, as if that wasn’t enough Dangerous also dons his creative hat and comes up with something his fans may not expect by creating a high energy liquid number for TTB’s sister label Ten Tons Deeper,Called you’re mine with sleeping on the Sofa on the flip.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg, Dangerous now creating his own dnb sound in sunny Australia has almost completed his follow up LP for Ten Ton Beats, his first Album The good, the bad, and the Dangerous, had many of the 12 track ensemble of jump up delights chart very high in charts right across the board, and after hearing snippets from the forthcoming LP we at TTB HQ are very excited not only by Dangerous’s return but also looking forward to witnessing the devastation his new tracks will cause on dance floors worldwide.
Dangerous is back at his first home Ten Ton Beats and the best way to celebrate that is to show the world of dnb just how versatile he is, not many producers have the skills to make an EP and a single that stretches over two labels that releases different genres both under the dnb umbrella of course, Enjoy.
Steampunk head the charge for ten Ton Beats with our first release for 2015.
Big Phat Bass is another massive riddim from the stuttgart basd dnb producer, this time he team up with London based vocalist Jasmine Knight to produce one hell of a dancefloor anthem, there really is no place for a raver to hide once this track drops. Sweat bands at the ready and get ya skanking shoes on for BIG PHAT BASS!!!!.
Too Much on the flip side is another classic example of Steampunks self titled style of dnb ‘wild dnb’. If you take the intensity of Big phat bass times it by 1000 and pour some rocket fuel on it, you have Too much, a massively high energy track leading Ten ton Beats nicely into 2015.
Costa aka Steampunk was born in the mid 80′s in Stuttgart, Germany. About 15 Years later he stumbled upon Drum And Bass more or less by coincidence. But this coincidence soon became one of his major changes in life. Following the call and searching for more, he found his love not only in the music but in the whole scene.
A couple of years later he took matters into his own hands, started mixing and put his first sets online under his first alias sTk. It didn’t take long till local Drum & Bass veterans discovered his talents and called him out to play on their events. So far Steampunk received bookings from north to south Germany, acting as local support for big names like Crissy Criss, Nicky Blackmarket, Blokhe4d, MC Navigator and the Ragga Twins. From the wildest jumpup tracks to harmonic liquid ballads, he’s mashing up tunes in about every style drum and bass can offer.
Meanwhile the producer inside broke through and so he used his influences gathered from producers like Original Sin, Heist, Hoax, Callide, Tantrum Desire and Drumsound & Bassline Smith to start producing his own jumpup and dancefloor bangers. Always in mind to keep the wild side of JumpUp Drum & Bass alive. Now he’s been in the game for about 6 years in DJing and 2 years in producing, more and more people noticing his talents and Steampunk talents have developed to such an extent that he is being recognised worldwide and not just in his homeland of Germany, After sending a demo to TTB’s head man Rekless it was litrally days before Rekless replied his demo with an invitation to join Ten Ton Beats, Here at TTB HQ we have big things planned for this very talented electronic musician who seems to have mastered the ability to apply as much energy as he has for DnB into his productions, definatly one to watch for
The Bangers only series returns to Ten Ton Beats with a 12 track ensemble of all things big bad bashy and fiendishly skanktastick!!.

All of dnb’s sub categories are represented on this various artist 12 track LP, Jump up, Liquid, Neuro, what I have decided to call down tempo filth……there is even a nod to the old skool with Kangaroo bass by dnb veteran Uniques.

This one comes from a producer I’m sure you all have already heard of, The mighty Shrust waving the dnb flag for Deutschland for years, wome of you may not know that Shrust is a part of the TTB family and has had quite a few releases Ten Ton Beats.
A highly skilled producer who has mastered his chosen field…… what is that chosen field?, I hear you ask……The dirty business of making dutty riddims, you know the kind of tracks that make you want to elbow drop who ever is closest to you, yea Shrust is making them like that and then some…….The lead track Land of the dead gently guides you down what seems like a gentle but eerie trip down Raving Lane, the next thing you know you have turned down bassline ally and the track is unleashed in its entirety, no where to hide from those expertly produced drums and that bassline is just relentless, another massive track from one of Germany’s biggest dnb exports.
Listen to both tracks below, they lead into the highly anticipated Bangers only Volume 2 LP
