Madmen & Poets / Triad
Hannovers No.1 on the D&B circuit discovered his love for the broken Beat during a journey to London in 1994! After listening to some live broadcasts from London..s Pirate radio, he began to spin Jungle/Drum&Bass records in 1994! He rapidly received his first residency in a Hannover based club called “Takt” in 1995. Soon came some regular bookings in north germany and later on over the whole country and Europe. In 1998 he decided to create his own sounds to play out and made the first attempts in producing music.
In 2004 Sebastian Wolters (Bass Tikal) and Roman Herbst set up their own record label called Phunkfiction Recordings, where they create and spread the deep & soulful side of D&B. The label started with a CD compilation called “The Breakbeat Lounge” mixed and compiled by himself. Vinyl releases followed afterwards from February 2005 on a regular base. They featured up&coming as well as already well known artists like Kubiks & Lomax, Lenzman, Zero T, Henree, Syncopix, Paul SG, Basic Operations, Submorphics, Contour, Stunna and many more.
In 2007 Bass Tikal and his brother LF Flow began to produce together under their moniker “Madmen&Poets“. They released their music on labels like Phunkfiction, Basswerk, Have A Break and others until their debut album “Scandinavian Sunday” came out on Fokuz Recordings in 2010.
Another new production outlet of Bass Tikal is called “Triad” which he is doing with Henree and his brother Florian. They already gained some attention with their first tracks which are played by ones like Bailey, Flight, Spectrasoul, Instramental, Lomax and more. The project had its international breakthrough with their single “Fiasco” which opened many doors for them.
