Back with a bang and brandishing four deep house cuts, London upstart label Five Fold Records welcomes the adroit Dokta Venom to the fold. Returning to his love of dirty twisted deep house, having grown up listening to Mr.Fingers, Frankie Knuckles and Moodyman, the Burnt Roses EP is drenched in the gritty soul influence of the Detroit & Chicago house movements.

Only U opens up proceedings with a straight up house cut laden with slinky soul pad sweeps atop a deep pulsating sub bass line kept correct by the upfront kick which drives this beautifully arranged sensual vocal track.

Burnt Roses builds through catchy orchestral strings drifting along a punchy break beat inspired rhythm, deep and luscious, scattered with deftly intricate arrangements morphing throughout this big beat stomper of a track.

Rum Vapour's house organ infused melodies are matched by ethereal vocal samples that, set to a swinging four the floor backbone and skippy high hats, impart a garage house vibe.

In conclusion and wearing its influences proudly on the sleeve, Space Dust pays homage to the legendary Brazilian trio Azymuth with a killer slap bass and meandering rhodes chords set to a loose rhythm rich with shuffling congas, shakers and hand claps.

The Dokta (aka Daniel Maunick, the son of Jean-Paul 'Bluey' Maunick of Incognito fame) first emerged from the nascent drum & bass scene of the early 90's recording his first track, a collaboration with the legendary Shy-FX, at just 15 years of age. Working extensively as part of Incognito for many years, Daniel all the while continued to develop as a studio producer & audio engineer with an extensive catalogue of releases behind him. Spanning genres and tempos with productions honed under aliases known throughout the broken beat and drum & bass scenes of the turn of the millennium, releases on labels like Talkin' Loud & Chronic Recordings underlined his studio dexterity. Now, after years DJ'ing on pirate radio and terrestrial stations like BBC 1Xtra while tending to his residency as one of Far Out Recordings main producers of Brazilian music for artists from Sabrina Malheiros to Azymuth and Marcos Valle, the Burnt Roses EP reconnects a truly talented producer with a genre that he can only describe as a labour of love.

Dokta Venom has collaborated as producer, remixer or engineer with...
Incognito, Amp Fiddler, Faithless, Shy-FX & T-Power, Maysa, Stamina MC, Marcos Valle, Azymuth, Sabrina Malheiros, Paul Weller, Terry Callier, Killa Kela, Hempolics, Brenda Russell, Omar, Jocelyn Brown, Gilles Peterson, Para:Diso & Ski Oakenful amongst many many others!
