Since the release of their five track debut, the Habitat EP back in 2011, London duo Maribou State have gone on to become without doubt one of the UK underground's most celebrated acts. They won across the board national and tastemaker radio support for their emotive, yet effortless post-dubstep sound, which has drawn comparisons to SBTRKT.
The pair unleashed a string of successful releases on Fat! over two years that culminated in the release of their summer 2012 hit Olivia, which received a 'Tune of the Year' nod from XFM's Eddie Temple-Morris.

Scott Nixon is a bad ass professional snowboarder who likes to make beats when not jumping out of helicopters onto mountains! The music world was first introduced to him when he collaborated with D&B golden boy Shimon a few years ago. Now Scott is back with this massive new 4 track EP encompassing elements from hip hop, classic house through to dub and jungle.

Both seasoned djs and producers their tracks have fitted into Miami Bass sets through to Trap and House.
