Label: Shotcallers/ Journees Music

Genre: Drum & Bass

Catalog #: JOU421

UPC: 6 40687 04212 4

The long-awaited self-titled full-length debut of this young, energetic and already well-respected underground international artist from Kajaani-Finland brings you both rough and atmospheric drum and bass.

The title is brought to you by Journees Music in North America under the Shotcallers sublabel of Journees. In the UK, distribution is under the wings of Aphrodite's legenday Urban Takeover and In.Disc (Norway) the place to look for more Muffler-branded releases, also on Vinyl.

19-year-old Muffler was before this fine release seen on the Meltdown Compilations by In.Disc but known to an underground audience by his fine music contributions to computer demonstrations of groups like CNCD, Haujobb and Scoopex. This is a top-quality release of some of the finest intelligent drum&bass in the world and a proud addition to the Journees family.
