As Ten Tons UK inches closer to the 100th release, Dec James serves up 4 flavorsome slammers for for your USB sticks or playlists. Dec James is fast becoming a name you can rely on to deliver some of the best drum and bass on the market, this EP in particular has something for everyone, from the high octane lead track Mustang, classic Dec James jump up, High energy and and unforgiving relentless basslines, to the crossover potential of Genesis this producer can seriously do it all, and do it all very well.

PROJECT LANDO RETURNS TO TEN TONS WITH LEGENDARY PRODUCER SHODAN 

Project Lando returns to Ten Tons with a huge colab. He teams up with good friend and legendary producer 'Shodan' to bring a summer anthem for your listening pleasure. The two producers have wanted to work together for the longest time. But for one reason or another it didn't happen......until now!!, somethings are worth waiting for and this is one of them, beautiful vocals with clever arrangement trickery all blended together to create a truly epic piece of music, so much good energy, this track most definitely emotes that roof down in the summer time feel, 2 miles an hour so every body sees you (Will Smith) kind of vibe. Project Lando & Shodan hope to work together again in the very near future and if this track is anything to go by that is something you should be looking forward to.

DRUNKEN MASTER LANDS ON TEN TONS.... 

Exploding onto the drum and bass scene brand new exclusive signing Drunken Master UK has his debut solo EP on Ten Tons. After leading the charge on TT's last release (Team Ten Ton Part 2) its time to showcase this brand new artist and his vast array of skills in the studio. You will be able to tell that this mans weapon of choice is Jump up dnb and he wields it with reckless abandon, from the lead track 'Kung Fu' to the last track 'C'mon there really is a very high skill level, very intricate drum patterns with well processed synths give 'Drunken Master' his own take on our beloved music, there is an attention to detail that many producers lack. 

For his first solo project this EP is seriously weighty for this Essex based new kid on the block, Drunken Master UK is a name you will be hearing a lot from this point onwards. 

Much Respect

TEAM TEN TON ASSEMBLE!!!! 

Team Ten Ton returns with 5 of the biggest jump up tracks on road, Brand new signing Drunken Master is showcased here ahead of his solo EP (Coming soon), fellow label pals Damageman, Project Lando, LVB and Dec James are all along for the ride and collectively have created a front to back, no dead weight EP of pure dancefloor filth, nothing on this EP disappoints as Ten Tons head towards 100 releases foot fully on the accelerator.

 

VEE CONJOURS UP A PERFECT STORM WITH MADISON ROOVERS ALONG FOR THE RIDE.... 

Ten Tons delivers another belter for your listening pleasure, fully taking the labels new tagline seriously '360 degrees of drum and bass under one roof. 
Ten Tons has been busy planning and plotting from the last half of 2019, we have new signings, a new logo and a fresh new outlook to take is into 2020 and beyond. 
The term Double A side gets banded around a lot, normally its to give the 'B side' a better look as its normally a weaker track. 
But not on this release, Perfect Storm has summer anthem written all over it, it got its first airing on BBC Introducing which is always a great way to launch your music to the world. Its the song writing that stands out here, Madison has used her amazing vocal ability and range and manages to accompany the music rather than dominate it, after you've listened to this track you suddenly find your self humming the melody, in my opinion this is the sign of a truly special sound, with drum and bass at its core. 

'Now we rollin' gives us a role reversal from the duo, where as Perfect Storm seemed to be a way for Madison Roovers to flex her musical muscles. 
Now its Vees turn to show off some technical bassline wizadry and some solid drums which litrally force your head to nod add to the mix Madison's soulful hook helping this deep dark jump up beast rolling along, something for every DJ/RAVER or Playlist curator, no dead weight here.

A HISTORY LESSON FROM PROJECT LANDO 

Project Lando returns to Ten Tons with a 1 tracker. 
Origins stands strong on its own, Lando has come up with a kind of Old school Hybrid, steeped in current drum and bass Production techniques with a solid 175 bpm Kick Snare that helps keep the familiarity we have grown accustomed to from Project Lando. 
The sample is what gives its track a story, grabbing the listener, shoving them in a time machine, and giving them a short but very important history lesson. 
Always trying to push boundaries to make a truly unique sound, Ten Tons has recently started to release the full 360 of drum and bass and not just jump up, which is why this track sits so well in the 2020 version of the label that has been going strong for 9 years now....

 

PROJECT LANDO AND MC J.O.K TAKE ON THE DROP THE KNIFE CAMPAIGN..... 

As some of you may have seen, right at the beginning of the year Project Lando and Mc J.O.K, found themselves on the BBC News promoting their hip hop track 'Drop the Knife', there was also an Interview on BBC Essex, as you might imagine a big but pleasant surprise for the duo, They'd both had enough of reading the headlines about kids getting stabbed and felt a bit powerless until J.O.K came up with the idea of making a track and the rest is history. Fast forward a month and TTB's first release of the year had to be changed to reflect the recent press. Lando headed into the studio to remix his original Hip hop track and here we are today :-). On this release you have Lando's remix aswell as the original hip hop track, Hope you Enjoy

DEC JAMES RETURNS AND HE'S REACHING FOR THE SKY... 

Dec James formerly known as MQ has well and truly smashed this new EP, After getting very disheartened with his career a few months back, Dec James decided a name change might freshen up his creative process and give him a chance to reinvent himself This reinvention has worked wonders as every track he has produced since switching it up has been signed sealed and supported by his peers and this EP is no exception. 
Arguably his strongest EP to date this Essex based producer just seems to be going from strength to strength with his new direction, the lead track 'Skyline' has rewind written all over it and really excersises this young producers ability to produce what is current and popping off on the dancefloor, showing some serious versatility skills he switches things up for 'Twice' Jungle vibes a run with this expertly created amen tearout. 
Dec james is forging his own path in this scene of ours, and its full steam ahead for 2020

TEN TONS CALLING FOR THE BIG GUNS, JAYLINE & DAMAGEMAN DELIVER IN BUCKETLOADS!! 

Project Lando's Jungle slammer 'Fire in my Belly' featuring Mc D Low gets the remix treatment from one of our scenes most consistent and highly respected producers, the mighty 'Jayline' gets his hand on the stems and whips up a storm only he is capable of, he drags the original track away from its jungle roots smothers it in new school bass techniques and clinically clean production, a wealth of experience is plain to see as Jayline breaths new life into 'Fire in my Belly. 
When it comes to new wave you have to mention the Suffolk based bassline don Damageman, no stranger to Ten Ton this very in demand producer gives the original track a totally different flavour. Mc D - Low's massive vocal is expertly manipulated and a serious amount of Damageman'esque skulduggery is at play to deliver a solid remix which stand toe to toe with Jayline.  
A solid single from the good folks at Ten Ton Beats.

 

WHOA!! IT'S MAN LIKE GAW... 

New recruit GAW explodes onto Ten Ton Beats with a start as you mean to go mentality delivering 4 of the finest jump up riddims you will hear this summer. All track set to hurt dancefloors worldwide, giving DJ's that highly sort after 'Selector' kudos and also handing the ravers some bass heavy rumblers to get their shuffle on. 

Gaw made his first appearance on the Team Ton Ton EP with his crowd favourite 'Back & Forth' and he's utilised his understanding of the jump up genre to show this was not a one off. An artist you will be seeing a lot of on TTB over the coming months and defo one of the new wave that is flooding our scene right now.
