Knowledge Mag Interview and Heist Guest Mix !!!
Blackmask (Ten Ton Beats, Phantom Dub Digital - Hell)
In early 2013 the infamous Blackmask was born and fled the airwaves by bringing the heavier more upfront sounds of jump up to separate production from the more minimal sounds. Blackmask is a group of already established producers from three different countries, but the question of who still remains a mystery. Right off the get go Blackmask was being signed up by record labels with forthcoming releases on Ten Ton Beats & Phantom Dub Digital. Just six months in the game Blackmask began being booked to DJ internationally, playing its first shows across the USA - with upcoming bookings from New Zealand to USA. This new entity in the drum n bass game is certainly a force not to reckon with, quickly rising to the top with their high energy productions and heavy bass lines. Constantly in the studio producing new original material, be sure to stay on the look out for Blackmask.
