Inspirational, humble, irreplaceable – these are the sentiments that appear again and again in the emotional swell of tributes that have emerged from the global drum ‘n’ bass underground to salute Manchester’s quiet low-end godfather.
The artist’s sudden passing has been met with a deep, nostalgic realisation at just how far his influence as a DJ, producer and mentor extends. And that’s not to mention everyone’s love of his dry Northern wit and no-nonsense wisdom.
From releasing timeless proto-jungle classics in the early 90s as a Manchester scene original to writing and curating some of drum ‘n’ bass’s greatest ever dancefloor triumphs in the noughties via his seminal Soul:r label to his all-time legendary partnerships with ST Files as M.I.S.T. and Calibre as Mist:i:cal, all the while continuing to bring through today’s scene-leading artists such as MC DRS and LSB right up to the present – Marcus Intalex was the very essence of a drum ‘n’ bass lynchpin.
