This Northern duo are currently smashing the Leeds music scene, brought together in 2011 they both shared a penchant for UK underground music which is what’s now giving us some really exciting new sounds. Through past influences the duo have crafted a sound that sits between House, Techno & Jungle.
These musical foundations are heard on the duo’s breakthrough release on Redlight’s Lobster Boy label, which received support from the likes of Loefah, Jackmaster & Oneman. With an EP on Breach’s Naked Naked label and the second volume of their M.A.P white label series, Mak and Pasteman will continue to deliver a sound that is both uncompromising and true to their roots.
The duo evidently have had a productive 2014, but they’ve clearly been planning for 2015. Their impressively diverse back catalogue sound throws up deep house, bassline, techno and tech-house to name a few. Their label Materials has been off to a fine start and yesterday ‘Granulate’ showed the duo can knock out some crazy warehouse ready tech-house. Now they’ve got another one, as premièred on Annie Mac’s Free Music Monday series, called ‘Tempest’. It’s a slow-burning acid techno tune that once again exemplifies why the duo has become an “underground sensation” as Annie Mac calls them.
The sounds these guys are creating are truly making them become a stand out artist in 2014 and if they carry on like this 2015 is going to be absolutely massive.
