Image: 1581092 As everyone knows The Metalheadz label was built on a solid foundation of nothing other than a commitment to the absolute highest calibre of future thinking music, an attitude that was inherent at day one and continues to this day, the driving element that holds Metalheadz head and shoulders above the rest as the best known and loved genre defining imprint for Drum and Bass Music.

As the label quickly approaches its milestone 20th anniversary next year and as Metalheadz enters another exciting chapter the continuing emphasis on the absolute pinnacle of quality music continues this time courtesy of one of Manchester’s most respected and revered scene heavyweights Marcus Intalex.

Marcus signals his long overdue return with META008 which features both “Riots” & “Hell To Pay, two outings that illustrate why Marcus is still deservedly regarded as one of the scenes most important ambassadors.

“Riots” kicks things off with a driving, gritty hard-edged dark stepper carried perfectly by a heavy helping of splashy rides and low-end grunt, steadily building and rolling in combination to devastating effect Marcus provides a soundscape which is reflective of the title itself. A tune that looks back to London’s troublesome past by taking “Riots” of the streets and transferring them straight to the dance floor.

Meanwhile on the flip “Hell to Pay” features a very healthy nod to the past in bang up to minute standard. All of the golden elements are here that defined the early tech era – Heavy tech stabs, plenty of reece and a massive helping of live drums – Everything that is right about this sound is found right here in perfect balance. Elements that are tried tested and in this case perfect!

Another unmissable 2013 Metaheadz release Available from 27.05.2013
