We are happy to announce the latest Counterpoint Recordings release, which sees the return of legendary beat crafter Mikal to the label.
Having just released his new album, the Bristol based artist comes back to our catalogue for his trademark percussion twist on our bassline groove.
Mikal has certainly carved his name as a reference both among the amazing pool of creativity which is Bristol’s Drum & Bass culture, but also worldwide.
Now carrying two Metalheadz albums under his belt, it is his dub/dancehall influences and his distinct drum work which have turned his sound into a staple for creativity and authenticity.
He now returns to Counterpoint for a 2-track single which is a perfect fusion of artist and label aesthetics.
His close relationship with Portuguese seminal artist – RIOT, has resulted in many collabs over the years, and for the B side of this release Mikal delivers a stunning remix of ‘Swarm’, taken from the ‘RIOT – Speedball EP’ (released 2019 on Counterpoint).
