Artist: Great Scott
Title: Revolved
Cat # Muti068
UPC # 705105141008
Tracklisting:
1. Defcon (RuN RiOT Remix)    5:21
2. Defcon (Samples Remix)    4:11
3. Tarot (Royal Sapien Remix)    5:42
4. Defcon (Mesmer Remix)        7:19

Great Scott’s tracks Defcon and Tarot get some excellent reworks by Run Riot, Samples, Royal Sapien and Mesmer, each giving their own unique breakbeat interpretations.
‘Defcon’ was previously supported on BBC radio and also included on the ‘LoveEvolution’ CD alongside the likes of Lee Coombs, Miguel Migs, Christopher Lawrence and more luminaries of dance music culture. This new remix EP is once again a combination of midtempo Glitch Hop and uptempo Breakbeats and even a drop into Dubstep from Run Riot and Samples. The Royal Sapien remix of ‘Tarot’ takes things into a deeper vibe and Mesmer finishes things of with some inspiring progressive moods.

Great Scott is the host of “MK Ultra,” on KTRU in Houston, is a regular on NSB Radio, has also been a resident DJ in China and was one of the NuSkoolBreaks radio DJs at WMC 2009. Recently Scott also founded and launched a new online radio show, Glitch. FM, which has fast become the centerpiece radio station for the emerging genres of wonky, glitch hop, lazer bass, turbo crunk, acid crunk and whatever else you’d like to call the new edgy instrumental hip hop and breakbeat scenes. Strongly inspired by the sounds of old-school big beat and breaks, including the likes of Fluke, The Prodigy, and Rabbit In The Moon, Scott is constantly attempting to fuse the sounds of the old with that of the new, while trying to achieve a delicate balance between producing music that’s meant to make people move, with that which inflicts various emotions and imagery.

Muti Music is overjoyed to announce the release of Ana Sia’s debut EP, ‘International Profile’.
Not many DJs get magazine feature articles before their debut releases have ever materialized, however if you’re making enough impact on a scene and culture with your DJ touring as Ana has, then it’s not such a surprise. Uniting the best elements of dirty dubstep, grimy glitch, and her personalized blend of “global slut psy-hop.” Ana Sia’s sets confirm crunk status of all who dare enter into her seamless world of sound.

‘International Profile’ shifts between straight up Hip Hop, Dubstep and Grime influences and maintains a sexy humanist feel. A few of the tracks are collaborations with our ‘master of all things Ableton’, Mr. ill.Gates and they deliver on all accounts as expected, ‘Extraordinary Rendition’ has already been a hit at festivals this summer.
Ana Sia’s love of electronic music combined with an innate understanding of the value of dance to the human soul collectively fuse to create unforgettable sets of experience, whether she is slamming spots in her hometown of San Francisco or taking her turn in the forests of music festivals around the country.

Ana’s energetic delivery of brain-fazing beats has earned the Princess Slay-ah moniker an important spot in pioneering the West Coast future sound movement. She will take you on a musical expedition into the deepest reaches of your brain, as she masterfully blends a wide spectrum of rhythms with a beautiful fluidity and a delicate sensibility, giving the dance floor a delightful ride that ends at the corner of bliss and oblivion.

10 years ago, Timonkey climbed a massive Redwood tree that towered above a renegade party in the Santa Cruz mountains.  As the sun rose, he received the inspiration for what has been his mission ever since: to make the best sunrise music ever.  Delivering a proper morning set is a delicate art: the dancers need strong energy to keep going, but they are also craving something different by this point in the experience.  Timonkey is one of the few DJ/Producers who specialize in providing this “something different” that can give a long night of rave and revelry the closing ritual it deserves.
During his years of experience as a DJ/Producer, Timonkey has shared the stage with the likes of Tipper, Vibesquad, Kraddy, Random Rab, as well as Muti Music label mates Ill Gates, Mimosa, and Heyoka.  All name-dropping aside, he has reached the elusive goal of a “signature sound”:  chopped vocals, analog keyboards and airy textures alongside massive bass and glitched out beats.  Beyond the technical elements, his tracks have an unmistakable vibe all their own: a dreamy, heart-felt quality that makes a delightful treat for party-goers who make it to the dawn.

In the past three years Heyoka has been taking elements of Glitch Hop, Grime, Drum & Bass and Dubstep and turned them on their heads repeatedly and emerging at times like the audio conversion of synthesized dimethyltryptamine and other times creating walls of sound that provide a full body massage and relieve pressure on the extremities. One undeniably consistent element that is heard from anywhere he has toured or been submitted for review, is that the Heyoka experience is a bass lovers delight.

His albums tend to be evolutions of certain parameters on self created sound pallets and genre experimentations. On ‘Cosmic Boogie’ he carries on where he left off delving into Halfstep and some Drum & Bass on ‘Marklar’. This time he also embraces old-skool beats like the ‘amen’ loop while staying true to style, he edits the hell out of them and adds his own distinctive flavor.
Heyoka has been on the road steadily and his growth as a performer is evident in his ability to reinterpret his music to various dancefloors and circumstances.

Morpheus Music pretty much summed him up when reviewing Marklar:
“Maklar has an unrelenting dynamism about it - compulsive rhythms of an almost primal nature defying even the uninitiated to remain unmoved. Once the d’n'b rhythms kick in there is an almost chemical elegance that arises - nimble geometric arrangements among the peripheral ephemera and frenetic marginal detail that call to mind the structured chaos of nature. The use of so much imaginative sound manipulation and sonic mangling gives Marklar a distinct flavour; Sonic effects for Heyoka being not so much embellishments as central elements to the music.”

‘Jingletown’ is a name given to a ghetto neighborhood on the south side of Oakland where cultures collide. Home to some of the best Burritos in the Bay Area, some of the most hyped of the Hyphe Hip Hop scene and some scary street sideshows.
Both successful and starving artists live there for the cheaper large work spaces, musicians like it because they get away with noise at all hours and the rest is wreaths on the sidewalk from a recent drive by or some other gang related violence.
On ‘Jingletown’ , Siren delves into the sound and energy of the neighborhood.
The ecstatic enjoyment of good tunes in a lowrider on the sunny day, is ‘Summertime In Oakland’, the edginess of hitting those same streets at night is reflected on the tracks ‘Law & Disorder’ and ‘Negative Ion’, ‘Stunna’ is hitting the happening club or underground warehouse party and then escaping it all as you wizz away on the freeway are the sounds of ‘Burst’.
Since his debut on Muti Music last year, Siren took the US west coast by storm. He was quickly signed to an agency alongside the likes of Kraddy, Mimosa, RD and Marty Party and began his career as a touring DJ & producer.
Some recent highlights include playing to thousands of fans on the Do Lab Stage at Coachella this year and headlining at Beta in Denver.

We’re very happy to re-introduce an artist who was our debut release back in 2002 and went on to become quite a name in Breakbeat, releasing on Bedrock Breaks, Air Dog, Sponge Recordings amongst others and also remixing ‘My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult’ for release on Red Ant  & Studio !K7.
Kemek has since dropped ‘The Dope Computer’ part of his name and re-surfaced from stays in Japan (with a few gigs alongside the likes of Hyper) and ongoing battles with tinnitus. Now his musical journey continues with a deconstructionist look at Dubstep on the appropriately named EP ‘Sine Language’.
It is evident on the EP that Kemek has maintained his sensibility for urban music and strong roots dating back to classic rave music of the nineties, when he composed for Silent Recordings as 303 Terrorist. His evolution as a producer is evident as he allows space for sounds and grooves to evolve from simple beginnings and the results are very effective.
