Chōten. An evolution of a benchmark in breakbeat history has returned under a new guise. The backstory of this project and it's influence was felt though various prestigious Label releases
. Hitting hard with the debut 'Express Yourself By All Means Necessary' released on homegrown Apex Recordings. This sort after rare groove contained the seminal sub-heavy monster 'Acid Dred' a dubwise twist on the burgeoning Nu Skool Breaks sound. Followed by the classic 'Bangin' the 'Symmetry EP' and 'Bass Design' on Marine Parade. A change of name followed, “far too many other outfits were using our name’, some even within the same musical genre! This lack of imagination on the part of their contemporaries was partly the reason the project was placed on ice. Until now, expect a new album with brand new material and remastered classics 'Reborn' to hit a dance floor and all download / streaming services soon. Released through Sonic Heavy Records.
