    Mako returns with his first solo EP on Metalheadz.

    The EP opens with The Narrator, classic Headz samples are evident and made all his own, a perfect intro to the EP carried through with big subs and slapping drums.

    Things continue on with The Gap Feat Fields, contorted mids and amen edits all feature, It’s a gnarly track designed for the dancefloor from the intro to the last beat.

    Candle In The Cage is all about the heartfelt strings through the intro which give way to intricate percussive led drums, classic breaks dash in and out of the mix quickly, a confident track that keeps you engaged throughout its course.

    Warrior Pose wraps up the EP, classic Headz flavour with 2015 production qualities. Rave stabs run against apache edits. It’s a coherent and full EP from Mako, you can look forward to more from him on the label.

    And it seems to me, you live your life, like a candle in the wind, never knowing who to cling to, when the rain set in.

    There was an interview with Mako where he explains why The Narrator is not a remix of Ghosts of my life.
    Anybody has an idea where to find it ?
