Volor Flex & Encode – Altiplano EP

Volor Flex teams up with fellow Russian producer Encode (who some of you may recognise from his stomping drum & bass productions) to give us the Altiplano EP for Dark Clover. Fusing elements of dark ambient, garage and downtempo, the tone of the work feels reminiscent of Burial, but that’s not to say that the EP is simply copycatting […]

L Plus – The Priceless EP

Posted on

L Plus‘s latest EP for Technique Recordings is a little slice of the kind of drum & bass I seldom find much interest in. The pop-hook infused style with little nuance or subtlety, throwaway music aimed at dancefloors that will be forgotten within months if not weeks. But somehow the tunes on show here are […]

Lung – Wait Less Suspense

Posted on

Cardiff-based producer Lung‘s debut LP for Med School landed a couple of weeks ago and yielded what I can only describe as mixed blessings. When he gets it right, the young talent really hits the mark, but too many of the songs over-indulge in formulaic vocals for the work to feel consistent or innovative. This […]

Koncept – Breathe In / Your Eyes

Viper Recordings’ latest single comes from London based producer Koncept who dishes up a tasty pair of drum & bass rollers. Breathe In gets the adrenalin pumping nicely with a simple yet hypnotic melody over an epic rise before kicking into a massive sub drop and rolling on with a seriously catchy bass riff. Even the breakdown […]

Earth Leakage Trip – Authorised Leakage EP

Rave stalwarts Earth Leakage Trip (who the trainspotters among you may recognise from their releases on Moving Shadow wayyyyy back in ’91) are back with an EP for Nexgen Music. If you like your beats a little bit trippy and leftfield this is definitely for you. Ignore the awful opener Time For Disclosure (some seriously woeful […]

Dexta, Mauoq & MCXL – Torn

Posted on

Continuing their excellent run of grimey, minimalistic D&B releases, Protect Audio bring us a tidy new single from Dexta, Mauoq and MCXL in the form of Torn. Hitting home with hefty half-step beats, warped bass and some tight rhymes, this one is definitely for the heads rather than the dancefloor. Keeping things leftfield, Mtwn delivers a remix which […]

Gridlok & Prolix – Membrane / Babylon

Posted on

RAM return with a release from something of a dream team in terms of dark, nasty, tech-infused D&B. After last year’s collab on Poisonous for Gridlok’s Project 51 imprint, my hopes were reasonably high for this 12″ and the boys have not let me down! Membrane serves up some seriously crunchy bass textures against the backdrop of […]

Usurp – Inveteratus EP

Posted on

Scottish producer Usurp delivers another outstanding free EP of deep, bassy house beats. Particular highlights are to be found on the off-kilter percussive rhythms of It’s True and the hefty bass-led action of Into The Street. Definitely a producer to keep an eye on! Check out the beats below and grab yourself a free copy of the EP from […]

Help Tipper Pay for Heart Surgery

Dave Tipper is a producer who’s music I have been enjoying for a great many years now, and a producer who’s work across a decade of time and a wide span of electronic styles has been not only thoroughly enjoyable but massively influential to boot. From his IDM explorations with Mike Wallis as Crunch, through […]

Logam – Interface / Morphic Fields

Posted on

Logam steps up for the 6th release on his own Santoku imprint with a couple of beats that truly showcase a versatility of production within the D&B sphere. Interface melds hypnotic, slightly trancey melodies with a solid, rolling break and warm sub stabs to create a nice middle-ground tune; perfect for building the energy in sets before […]
