It’s like a match made in heaven when Portsmouth based Macca teams up with Leeds' very own Loz Contreras. With their classic Liquid Funk inspired sound the Leeds/Portsmouth based duo have built a steady reputation as DJ's and producers pursuing the more soulful end of the Drum & Bass spectrum. Their harmonious and poly-rhythmic approach to drum and bass has already resulted in guest mixes for BBC Radio 1 & 1 Xtra, appearances at Liquicity and Fabric as well as getting support from some the scene’s heavyweights such as Fabio, Grooverider, Crissy Criss, Marky, London Elektricity, Fred V & Grafix and LTJ Bukem. With Rotterdam based Fokuz Recordings they’ve released numerous high profile releases and tracks such as 'Always Yours' and 'Wanna Be Your Lover'. The autumn of 2015 sees the prolific Technimatic jump on remix duties and flipping Macca & Loz Contreras’ already stellar track ‘One Touch’ into a thick and deep groove emphasizing the strong points of the original production. In 2017 Fokuz Recordings proudly presents the Better World LP. No bombastic kicks and snares here. The boys tend to stay true to their uplifting ethos through reworking iconic soul samples into danceable feel good grooves underlined by natural-sounding breaks that roll with ease. The Better World LP showcases the duo’s best work to date. Besides a string of new cuts also 4 previous released tracks are included in the package. These works are some of their most highly regarded tracks which obviously couldn’t be left out. The new tracks include a vocal featuring by Hannah Eve + remixes by Lenzman, FD and S.P.Y. In addition to their work as a duo this extended album also includes solo efforts by both Macca and Loz Contreras.
