    Mako’s most recent release ‘Back To The Source’ is definitely an EP to get excited about! Having dropped a few weeks back on the mighty Dispatch Recordings (07.07.14), it’s his first solo output on the label and a sterling addition to both his own and the Dispatch catalogue.

    I think it’s fair to say Dispatch have cornered the market in pushing a distinctly dark and technical sound. Now, this isn’t to say the EP doesn’t hint at these kind of sinister grooves, but I do feel the overall vibe differs from what we’d usually expect from the label.

    Present in all of Mako’s music is his ability to amalgamate influences musical, introspective, and based also on a deep level of reflection in the world surrounding him. ‘Back To The Source’ is a body of work that clearly references the sounds of Photek, Dillinja and the pioneers of that much loved 90’s sound. There are quirks in the tunes that make for new discovery’s every listen, and undoubtedly the inclusion of thought-provoking samples adds an interesting depth to the music!

    With that in mind, Mako was kind enough to talk us through some of his favourite samples…
