Marking five years since the worldwide breakthrough of More Than Alot Records in 2008, MTA founders (Will and Saul of Chase & Status) found it fitting to work up a compilation with some of the labels most desired and most recent tracks. With numerous awards won thanks to the vivacious and gifted talent under the big belt of MTA, widely known for their artist Nero and their Grammy-nominated track "Promises," and Skrillex's remix of the acclaimed track touching on a Grammy last year. MTA boasting a plentiful roster of names that you'll currently find in the freshest playlists; More Than Alot is certainly not spending any time sleeping in the studio.
The quinquennial anniversary will be celebrated by a special compilation from MTA entitled, MTA 5 releasing a supremely crisp track by the UK producer Kove. Since his most recent EP, "Murmurations," Kove has once again proved himself with the MTA5 appointed track "Night Thought VIP." Exemplifying his ability to seamlessly merge a fast-paced/up-beat drumline with harmoniously chopped up spacey vocals, accompanied by sticky '80s synth lines; Kove knows how to dress up a song and make it more than another tune but rather something that makes you get up and dance.
Building a sturdy name for himself with his remix collection, Kove garnered over 110 thousand Soundcloud plays from the remix of Example – "10 Million People," over 405 thousand plays for his remix of Foxes – "Holding Onto Heaven," and passing 580 thousand plays on Kove's version of Bastille – "Of the Night;" it's clear that MTA is harboring a diamond on the horizon.
Be sure you get your ears around “Night Thought VIP” by Kove, released today from MTA Records. Keep a lookout for the release of the special five-year celebration compilation, MTA5, as well as other new releases from the marvelous musical labs of “More Than Alot” Records.Grab tickets to MTA’s 5th Birthday Event here at The Oval Space, London on December 19.
