After 2011's ‘Used Future’ (FR2011-02) and ‘This music is not music’ (on Kitchen Dip Recordings) Dutch producers-duo OptiMace releases the first 7-inch in the series ‘The future is not what it used to be’. DJ’s Mace and Optimus invited a whole division of artists to remix tracks of their debut EP. Big Mister Doom, Illy Symphony and KRSUR appear on this first, super-limited 7-inch.

Leeds-based duo Big Mister Doom kick off the 7-inch and take the song ‘From Lizzie with Love’ to a whole new level and deliver a hot-blooded, downtempo, electronic song. On the B-side, KRSUR injects ‘Little Nemo in Slumberland’ with offbeat drums and his trademark-synths, luminous as always. New-kid-on-the-block Illy Symphony brings the single to a closure and enriches ‘The ultimate rhythm machine’ with heavy beats, vocalshreds and sawing synths.
Upcoming 7-inches include remixes by Deformer, Moods, iET & DJ Optimus, Fremdkunst and DJ Devastate.


Big Mister Doom (UK)
Big Mister Doom are Leeds-based electronica producers Ian Scott and Joe Wretham. The two make detailed, rich and deeply textured electronic music taking influence from genres including minimal techno, IDM and left field hip hop. In 2010 they released their self titled debut EP; a dense and articulate exploration of electronic music. They remixed artists like Eskimo Twins, Muskoaka and Paper Tiger. In the near future Big Mister Doom are making more noise with the release of numerous remix projects including a remix for Pierce Warnecke and a fresh single-EP on Fremdtunes. A live show is planned for early 2012.

Illy Symphony (NL)
Ronaldo Companjen aka Illy Symphony fell in love with the kick and the snare, then turned his focus towards vinyl and later on the 4 by 4 layout became his main vice. With boombap being the base of things, combined with day to day occupations, the music evolves into something that's reflecting himself in all kinds of ways.

KRSUR aka Sam de Bruijn from Utrecht (NL) produces future beats, electronic hip hop, funk and tropical heat. Worked with Nino, The Compositive Two & Naive Machine and released music on Myor and Saturate records.
