ARTISTS: Maverick Soul
Emcee Recordings is back to bring some serious sounds to the dance floor! Emcee is the brainchild of label boss MC GQ, the legendary, multi-award winning MC who’s been a major player in the Jungle/Drum and Bass
scene since day one.
Since its first release in 1999, Emcee has gained a reputation as a breeding ground for cutting-edge, scene-shaping artists, launching the careers of major players such as Sabre, Allied Force, Clipz and MC:SP.
Already an established Emcee Recordings artist, Mechanizm has been DJ’ing and producing tunes since the origin of Jungle. After starting out presenting a show on pirate station Eruption FM in 1993, he moved on to Rude FM and signed as a producer with Emcee, gaining a residency at Fabric and going on to tour Japan with the Emcee crew.
The latest addition to the Emcee roster is Voyage, a DnB veteran who also cut his teeth presenting shows on pirate radio stations such as Underground FM back when Jungle first emerged in the early 90’s. A man with a deep, wide-ranging taste in music, Voyage has always been drawn to the darker, more experimental side of Drum and Bass.
“My sound is deep and complex. The tunes I’m working on for Emcee Recordings are best described as abstract and metaphysical. I never work the same way twice so prepare for something different!”
GQ, in collaboration with DJ Chef (Kool London) have been working their way through a massive amount of tunes in order to shape the new sound for Emcee.
“The sound of Drum and Bass is always changing and evolving and Emcee Recordings is back at the front of the train, taking things forward.”
— DJ Chef
“I’m bringing back Emcee now because the time’s right. I’m bringing back a fresh, warm and innovative sound. We don’t follow anybody, we do our own thing and with the new Emcee releases we’ve got coming up, you can expect to hear tunes with character…tunes you can dance to!”
With hundreds of tunes ranging from 140bpm to full-on Drum and Bass currently being considered for release, and a brand new stable of artists fast being formed, Emcee Recordings is back once again
to smash dance-floors worldwide and define a new era in Drum and Bass.
