2013 has only begun and already, Frankfurt's BLU SAPHIR RECORDINGS is making gigantic waves for the year, releasing two unique smashers by Finland's MERCE and VANDERA of the United Kingdom. Different from the usual rolling, deep and liquid goodness, WE OWN THE NIGHT and IS IT REAL REMIX have the capacity to impact large arena walls, driving the crowd to a blessed-out chaotic stir. Hailing from Vantaa, Finland, MERCE has had a steady build of success with releases on Rotation Deep, Subdepth and Interactive. Supported by the likes of Deep Focus, Nuage, Vandera, Getz and Blueprint, the man from Scandinavia will definitely be heard around the world throughout the year as he slides between drum & bass, dubstep and the melodic eloquence of the dubstep subgenre, lovestep. Known as a scientist during the dawn hours, VANDERA creates rich, melodic, psychoactive soundscapes that dance on the brain and are 'specifically engineered to blow minds on big rig sound systems.' With a catalogue that spans the crème de la crème of drum 'n bass and dubstep, including GOOD LOOKING RECORDS, ECHO DUB, UKF, BBC RADIO 1, and LIQUICITY, VANDERA's sounds are traveling at the speed of light, already featured throughout clubs in Russia, the United Kingdom and Europe.
