2017 gets of to a flying start with 2 huge EP's from Phace & Ulterior Motive
Phace 'Plastic Acid' EP [Blackout]
Phace debuts on BSE's Blackout label with the 'Plastic Acid' EP. 4 tracks of hard hitting D&B aimed squarely at the floor, it's a match made in heaven and adds another name to the killer list of labels Phace has worked with.

Ulterior Motive 'The Real' [Shogun Audio]
Another debut as Ulterior Motive swap home base Metalheadz for their first solo release on Shogun. Legendary MC Verse lends his vocal talents to the monstrous title track and while the other 3 cuts round out a truly diverse 4 tracker from the Bournemouth duo.

It was in 2006 when Krakota's production talent was picked up on by none other than scene stalwarts Total Science, who gave the 21 year old his debut release on their influential C.I.A. imprint in 2010 with the tracks Solid Shout & Callow. Since then he’s not looked back, releasing music with a number of respected labels within drum & bass including Ingredients Records, Integral and Kasra’s Critical Modulations.
Fast forward to 2016 and he's signed exclusively to one of the biggest labels around, Hospital Records. After 2 singles (Xylo/Irregular, Ice Hands/Ghosts) and an EP (Citadels) for the label, he released his debut album ‘Strange System’ in 2016. Covering the full gamut of Drum & Bass, it firmly established him as an essential part of Hospital empire, and with follow up projects already under way, you can be sure there will be no way of escaping Krakota’s bass heavy, break laden productions any time soon.
After dropping his 'Shape The Random' album last year to much acclaim, it's been a quieter 2016 for Phace on the produciton front. His 12" for Neosignal 'So Excited' / 'Lit Up' was the only solo release of the year although he still found the time to feature on Shogun with 'Mumbo Jumbo' and on the Sotto Voce label with the Spor colab 'Woodruff' amongst others.
As always he's been in heavy demand as DJ touring heavily and wowing crowds with his high-octane sets, and stepping up the Neosignal events with Misanthrop.
2017 starts with a bang with his debut EP for Blackout, 'Plastic Acid'
