Makes No Sense Records signed! Makes No Sense Records was formed by two individuals from Gibraltar, Britain with the intention of releasing exceptional, good quality music across all genres. We are looking forward to seeing what the label is all about!
Taylor Scott and Paul Ollinger, known as Mantis, are a relentless duo. Having begun their musical careers with metal & deathcore, the transition to heavy bass music was not so much a step down in intensity, but a slide into a world with spectacular tools to mix dense layers of music in new ways, and deploy it with force. Mantis was formed in early 2011 to test the boundaries of metal-influenced production, and plunge the result into a wash of haunting atmospheres. Mantis wants to provide “music to make you feel like you’re somewhere else, and you’ve never been more stoked to be there.”
With that target in sight, 2011 was a smashing first year; the momentum began in Atlanta, and overflowed with releases on labels such as Play Me, Heavy Artillery, BroTown Records, & Abducted Records. A standard was set with 2011′s “All Worlds”, their first EP, breaking the top 10 on Beatport’s Dubstep releases, and held with 2012′s “Futures” scoring #5 on Beatport’s overall chart. The support of tastemakers such as Liquid Stranger, Downlink, Figure, Cyberoptics, Diesel, Genetix, Persist, & Sluggo, points to an accomplishment of musical influence on an international scale, and the potential for much more.
A history in Atlanta’s metal scene, playing in acts such as WLTP and Attila, provides Mantis’ cornerstone of fierce stage skills. Having become known across the USA for throwing down an aggressive live show with unmatched energy and only the heaviest bass music, Mantis’ reputation stands as being one of the gnarliest new production teams in the scene.
With packed crowds at hand, and Beatport charts at their feet, only one goal remains- to raise the awareness of metal-influenced bass music… oh, and world domination.
Born out of a curiosity and need in an ever advancing technological global community, the core sonic manipulators continually experimentalized new advancements and ideas, and so the Kaos Krew was born out of this synthesized digital kaos. These test pilots of the digital age have been wreaking havok on the Cape Town (SA) underground scene for many years now, and have destroyed many minds along the path of kaos they have continued to sow.
Now they want to bring that blistering energy and intensity to the masses, showing their absolute passion for their vision in bringing quality releases and artists to the psychedelic community, hidden gems that need to be brought into the light. We see ourselves as the catalyst to building an Electronic Dance Music Empire, with many influential players & a collaboration of music never seen before from established artist right through to the up & coming ones, in both the local (SA) & International Psychedelic Music Industry. All the extreme manipulators of otherworldly proportions, delivered sublimely to the masses.
The key to describing music on Kaos Krew Records would be hard hitting, intoxicating, psychedelic EPIC-ness created by transcendental visionaries, with new and exciting cutting edge ideas, to the point of creating absolute mayhem and Kaos wherever it may be heard, whether it be played from your bedroom stereo to the wide expanses of outdoor music festivals around the globe… SPREAD THE KAOS!!!
