Over a decade after the original Tuned In compilation, comes the aptly named; Tuned In Two. This shouldn’t be confused as some kind of ‘cash in of random tracks that didnt fit an EP’ though, its a well constructed LP and one which pulls no punches, this IS the definitive sound of CIA records.
Its a deep affair filled with some of the most top tier, timeless artists to grace the scene. Familiar names like break, total science, calibre, zero-T & Fracture bring straight up badness from across the dnb spectrum, from sweet, liquid rollers to tear-out dancefloor smashers, theyre all here and begging for your record crate.
“Trends and fashions come and go within all the dance music genres but even after all this time there is still an underlying straight up timeless Drum & Bass sound & quality we feel & can’t be ignored which needs to be pushed forward and presented as a collection”

Out today (19/11/12) from all decent record shops: http://www.junodownload.com/products/total-science-presents-tuned-in-2/2082319-02/
Mars recordings has been bubbling away creating a solid foundation in quality liquid dnb for some time now. This latest EP features dRamatic and dbAudio behind the wheel, theyre are no strangers to the label, ‘Far Away’ was released earlier this year on this very imprint. This time Total Science has been bought in for remix duties though, bringing out the edge in the tune and wrapping it up nicely. A seriously good remix of an already top notch tune, peg this as future classic!
The flip ‘Days Runnin Out’ is an unashamedly funky roller, with jazzy keys and soulful vocals it’ll take you back a decade to when liquid really took off.Great vibes, more of this please!
Release date for this 12″ was pegged at early October. I guess the whole debacle with distro’s recently may have impacted on Mars too!?
So, coming soon 😉
A few new previews are surfacing of some upcoming badness from various producers
Total Science & SPY ft. Kevin King – Past Lives – Lenzman Remix
A wicked tune in its day, the original still gets a rinsing once in a while on my decks. The Lenzman remix, in true Lenz’ style, rounds off the sharp edges and makes it roll like a fuckin’ wagon wheel. Nice
Forthcoming on the 5th Nov on CIA
RAMM 124 – Calyx & TeeBee – Pure Gold/Perspectives
More previews from the RAMM camp, this ones looking promising! Yet more singles from Calyx and Teebee! A wicked pair of tunes, but I’d like there to be some left for the album! hehe.
Out on Oct 29th
Dispatch 63A – Roxy Music – Zero T
Zero T has been a little quiet of late, his footprints label hasnt really put anything out for a while either. So its nice to see him come back into the fray with a much anticipated single on Dispatch.
This ones a bit more chillout than I’m used to on Dispatch, but a great track none-the-less!
Coming Oct 22nd
Pretty much a match made in heaven for you liquid heads out there. These two epic artists collab on a free tune to get your hairs standing on end. I would gladly pay for this track, but free means its an instabag!Get on it!
