Press Info:
Force Mass Motion reverts to his old school roots with You’ll Never Be Back, a new EP on his self-titled label.

It is fair to say that Force Mass Motion is a legend of the UK’s hardcore, rave and jungle scene. The man born Mike Wells has always had a high rate and high-quality output and that has kept him at the heart of the underground since he first emerged in 1989. While he pioneered a nu-school breaks sound and has released on influential labels like Lot49, Kingsize Records and Rabbit City Records, he is now on his own imprint and channeling his earliest musical loves once more.

Opener ‘You’ll Never Be Alone’ is an all-out dance floor banger with throwback hardcore stabs and a pitched-up female vocal that brings the euphoria. The punchy breakbeats power it along as fills, sustained chords and bouncing bass all flesh out this full-flavour classic.

Energy levels remain just as high on ‘Back to Back’, with its tightly coiled drums and restless synths darting about the mix. Vocal stabs and manic acid lines keep things bubbling as the tension rises and the heat on the dance floor rises to boiling point.

These are two brilliantly contemporary takes on an authentic and irresistible old school sound.

Piece Of Mind

 

Press Info:
UK rave, hardcore and jungle legend Force Mass Motion is back on his own self-titled label with another of his explosive dance floor weapons.

Force Mass Motion, aka Mike Wells, is rolling out tunes at a high rate of speed and consistency. He has been doing so for decades having been right at the heart of the UK’s rave and hardcore scene since he started producing in 1989. His essential catalogue takes in all that and more, such as nu-school breaks, another sound he helped to pioneer. He has been associated with key labels over the years from the likes of Lot49 to Kingsize Records to Colin Faver’s seminal Rabbit City Records imprint. Now he is back on his own crucial label.

‘Piece Of Mind’ is a caustic fusion of bristling percussion and twitchy synths with crunchy drums. A breakdown is unexpectedly emotive, with thoughtful melodic lines making for a moment’s reflection before the heavy technoid drums bang again. It’s a timeless and knowing mix of UK dance history in one potent tune.

This is another essential and indelible production from the peerless Force Mass Motion.

Press Info:
Force Mass Motion drops R-iVAC on FMM

The rave, breakbeat and hardcore legend Force Mass Motion, aka Mike Wells, continues his run of new material with the single release ‘R-iVAC’, an exploration into the more melodic and progressive house side of his influences.

Given the UK producer’s acid-driven techno and hardcore background, its no surprise to hear a nagging 303 underpinning this deep, house groover but it’s the dense arpeggiated synths and pads that make ‘R-iVAC’ stand out from the crowd.

Discovered in the early 90s by the legendary Colin Faver, who ran the equally revered Rabbit City Records, Wells went on to release a string of influential releases for the label that, in 2021, are still the toast of the era. Never one to stay in one place, Force Mass Motion was also heavily involved in the NuSkool Breaks scene, releasing raucous tracks for the likes of Lot49 and teaming up with Dylan Rhymes for the melodic/progressive influenced ‘Silencer’ project. The past few years have seen Wells making his classics available whilst working on new material that ranges from epic breakbeat sounds to trance infused house.

From Fire To Light

 

Press Info:
UK Rave, breakbeat and hardcore pioneer Force Mass Motion drops another fresh release this month in ‘From Fire To Light’ – a euphoric breakbeat driven cut that evokes 90s progressive house and trance atmospheres.

Discovered in the early 90s by the legendary Colin Faver, who ran the equally revered Rabbit City Records, Wells went on to release a string of influential releases for the label that, in 2021, are still the toast of the era. Never one to stay in one place, Force Mass Motion was also heavily involved in the NuSkool Breaks scene, releasing raucous tracks for the likes of Lot49 and teaming up with Dylan Rhymes for the melodic/progressive influenced ‘Silencer’ project.

Now, Wells’ distils his previous musical directions into a mix of melodic, driven cuts that neatly encapsulate what he’s all about: energy and emotional influence.

Hung Drawn & Slaughtered

 

Press Info:
Legendary UK rave/hardcore/breaks pioneer Force Mass Motion drops a dynamic breakbeat cut entitled ‘Hung Drawn and Slaughtered’ via his eponymous label.

Force Mass Motion, aka Mike Wells, was instrumental in many of the UK’s nascent scenes, notably of the UK Rave, Hardcore and the early 00s nu-skool breaks movement. Wells has been producing music since 1989 and was discovered by Colin Faver, who ran the legendary 90s label Rabbit City Records. Throughout the 90s, FMM took the scene by storm, releasing a string of records on the catalogue before launching his self-titled imprint, and continued to release music prolifically.

FMM’s latest single, ‘Hung Drawn and Slaughtered’ showcases his prowess for producing powerful dancefloor anthems as the twisting synths and zappy melodies bounce smack bang off the belting breakbeats throughout the cut.
