MQ UNLEASHES HIS ROLLERS EP.... 

Ten Ton Beats mad professor MQ returns to Ten Ton Beats with a 5 pack of delights bursting at the seams with that rolling vibe that is so popular right now. 
MQ is rapidly moving away from the New or breakthrough talent tag and forcing his way into the much more desirable 'Established' category. 
There is much more in the pipeline coming from Mr MQ this year on Ten Ton Beats but this release really does show an ability to adapt to his surroundings and make what is working on the dancefloor, executing is expertly and giving it that MQ feel, what a talent this Essex basd producer is shaping up to be.

DNB VETERAN LUSTRAL LANDS ON TEN TONS DEEPER.... 

Ten Tons Deeper returns after the success of The Pain Ep by Link. 
This time brand new signing Lustral steps up to unleash 2 massive tracks with that darker edge we look for at TTD. 
Lustral is an artist who has been steadily building up his repetoir e of tracks for some time now, a highly skilled producer who is ready to move on to the next stage of his career. These 2 tracks are just a taster of what this Gosport based producer is capable of, with an EP pencilled in for TTD's sister label Ten Ton Beats there is lots to look forward to from Mr Lustral, watch this space.

 

DAMAGEMAN RETURNS TO TURN US ALL INTO ADDICTS!!!! 

Huge Support on this forthcoming single on Ten Ton Beats, from the legendary DJ Hype on his long running Kiss FM show, with a release date of Early July Addict is a classic example of Damagemans particular style of dnb, somewhere between the sub bass rollers of the jungle days and upfront dnb of the today,with another exceptional banger 'Reality' on the flip side this promises to be another huge release from the Ten Ton gang. 
Additional Support from: Mackie gee/Phantasy/Nicky blackmarket/ Basslayerz /Harry Bizzle/Kenny Ken/Klip and outlaw/DJ Ollie/ Barrington/Miss represent/Lady V Dubz/Ironlung/Propz and Rowney/ Cabin Fever/Kjah/Dj hybrid

Dangerous is BACK!!!! 

The mighty Dangerous returns to Ten Ton Beats with a couple of his buddies to unleash a huge single marking his return to the production arena, and a pre-emptive strike which proceeds his highly anticipated EP on Ten Ton Beats, Dangerous back and hes not playing around.

These 2 bangers standalone in their own right as well as making a solid single, Missing in action alongside Fraksure a is well thought out revisiting of one of TTB's most biggest tracks part of the highly supported & ambitious project the 5 years of Ten Ton LP.  on the flip side we have 'Donkey' with the very well respected new school producer 'Basstripper' helping out on the buttons, nice rolling flavas on this banger, irresistible bassline, always whips the crowd into a frenzy, a solid riddim this one.

Dangerous has already submitted some music that will be featured on his highly anticipated EP coming soon to Ten Ton Beats, and we don't mind telling you you are in for a real treat from a revitalised Dangerous. He will be leading the charge on Ten Tons next big project The Elements EP series more on that as the weeks and months go by but for now, this single shows real intent from this France based producer, (Yes Dangerous is based in France, get over it!!) there is a lot to look forward to as we push full steam ahead into 2017.

 

Listen to both tracks below

LINK TAKES US DEEPER........ 

Ten Ton deeper explodes into 2017 with its first release of the year, the liquid, darker edge of the Ten Ton brand is eager to get things moving this year and one way to do that is to inject fresh blood into the label. 
New Signing 'LINK' is no stranger to Ten Tons. having had an EP out quite early on in the Ten Ton Beats discography, he now returns all guns blazing with another genre to add to his toolbelt which is already bursting with WMD's. Link's Pain EP is an absolute belter on an EP, encompassing some sublime liquid tracks with lil nod to the jungle with fellow label buddy MQ with a track called Welcome committee, this is one you will want for these summer months as they get nearer, strict ipod playlist material. Ten Tons Deepers aim for 2017 is to cement a place next to big brother label Ten Ton Beats and if this EP is anything to go by, it wont take long to get there.

The Pain EP is quite simply a masterpiece of summer vibes, lets be honest we all know that artists are very delicate souls with many different sides, and alot of the time they only like to showcase one emotion in their music be it happy, sad, dark what ever they are feeling at the time of production. On the Pain EP Link manages to evoke so many different emotions, he goes dark with the title track 'Pain',  then he takes on a joyride with EWF track that just makes you smile and skank, and then we have Marvin a homage to summertime, windows down in your car just enjoying a hot day is what this track is all about. And then as mentioned before 'Welcome committee' is not only a nod to days gone past with a definite jungle feel, but it is also a bass face inducing, gun finger saluting banger of a riddim which just finishes of the EP nicely. 

TEN TON BEATS THROWS ITS WEIGHT AROUND WITH A REMIXES EP FEAT AN ALLSTAR CAST 

Ten Ton Beats returns with a full on assault on the audio senses, we started as we meant to on, with Dangerous and his huge 'Get you down' 
single, there is only one way to follow a huge release like that, and that is drop something bigger and badder, the remixes EP demonstrates in bucketloads.
Ten Ton Beats management has pulled out all the stops to bring more exciting bass music for your listening pleasure, 2017 is the year TTB makes a stand, and this EP is designed to turn some heads.

Manga leads the charge on this 5 pack of filth with his remix of Damagemans 'This Music', The highly respected Manga has gone full bore on this holding nothing back, really utilising his years of expertise in making dancefloor grot to produce something absoloutley ferocious in its intensity, TTB's rewind guaranteed stamp is all over this.
Dangerous also pitches in to the carnage with a huge remix of Basstrippers Straight forward, the thing about this EP is all styles of jump up are catered for, Dangerous covering the new school current corner, whilst closer to home Damageman weighs in with a bass heavy moody sounding re fix of Skuff's 'Chapters'. The one they call Damageman is making massive waves in dnb at the mo and his remix shows exactly why that is.
New signing MQ also got the call and decided on one of TTB's older tracks, Dangerous's 'Meatgrinder' has been resurrected pulled apart and put back together by the mad professor AKA MQ, and the results speak for themselves, MQ is one to watch for the future, a great addition to Team Ten Ton, lots coming from him over this year, and finally Rob Soundline returns with an epic remix of Just Mayhems 'Lynx', Rob has managed to drag it away from its liquid roots and give it a darker edge, this is all done whilst keeping the essence of the original, sign of a very talented producer at work there, its not easy to change a tracks sub genre, give it a new identity and have it work, But Rob Soundline manages to do just that, more new music coming from him over the next few months, so lots to look forward to. But for right now ENJOY the Ten Ton remixes EP due in download stores on 27.3.17 exclusive website release 17.3.17.

INTRODUCING MQ..... 


Hailing from Grays, Essex MQ has been steadily building quite a reputation on the jump up scene, already a name widely known on the ever growing Belgian drum and bass scene he has built up a solid fanbase for his unique take on dnb. 

MQ has already got some serious colabs under his belt with the likes of Ten Ton Beats very own Dangerous which is how he came to the attention of label boss Rekless. To cut a long story short after listening to a few of MQ's merkiest of riddims it wasn't long before Rekless sent MQ a contract to become an official TTB artist. His first order of business under the Ten Ton Banner is the Death Blow EP a 4 track collection of some of the dirtiest drum and bass money can buy, every track has that 'Shut down' feel about it, from the title track Death Blow with its heavily hip hop influenced intro to the new skool futuristic vibes of the grot infested 'Pagan'. There is no weak rollers making up the numbers here this is full on undiluted (sorry brockie) jump up dnb at its best, any DJ who needs something to really get the crowds attention can call on any of these 4 tracks to do the job and it will deliver. 
With his next EP release on Ten Ton already ion the making you will want to keep your ear to the ground to see what is coming next from this massively talented producer.
