Formed in the big-bang of 90’s drum & bass and regular faces at Rage, Metalheadz, Speed & AWOL, Blu Mar Ten released their first single in 1996 and were rapidly spotted by LTJ Bukem who signed them to Good Looking Records, cementing Blu Mar Ten’s position in the genre as originators of complex, atmospheric music.
They quickly grew and mutated beyond the confines of the jungle into lush experimentation with downtempo, ambient, house, breaks, techno & left-field for labels such as Naked Music, TCR, Guidance and Big Chill, with another two full albums of non-d&b material on Exceptional Records.
Returning to drum & bass, Blu Mar Ten released a string of tracks on Hospital Records, Med School, Renegade Hardware, Shogun Audio, 31 Records and many more.
2009 saw the establishment of their own Blu Mar Ten Music label with the Natural History album project. The LP delivered an incredibly wide range of drum & bass tracks from the deeply abstract to the unashamedly dancefloor, all bearing Blu Mar Ten’s trademark stamp of quality and augmented with remixes from Klute, Seba, Stray, Bop, Kastle & Badmammal.
In 2011 Blu Mar Ten delivered the album Love is the Devil achieving widespread critical acclaim and chart success.
In 2013 Blu Mar Ten released their new studio album, Famous Lost Words, featuring long-awaited collaborations with Seba and Robert Manos.
In 2016 Blu Mar Ten released their seventh studio album, Empire State.
