The Fuzz - Conrad Dawn - Up Rising

It’s like a hybrid of drum and bass and heavy metal. High octane does no justice to the energy this track exudes. It brings an altogether more organic, musical feel rather than just the usual synthetic drums. It won’t be everybody's cup of tea, but his contribution to UK drum and bass is undeniable. 

The King of Anxiety - Petite Noir - Double Six

With a debut album ready to go on Double Six, Yannick Ilunga teases us with this solo-produced taster EP. And quite a thing of beauty it is too, echoes of Wild Beasts, Joy Division and Talking Heads, all overlaid through sparse productions that build and drop with equal measures of tension and harmony. In the legacy of emotive acts like Sebastien Tellier, a great signing for Double Six. 

Escapism (Alphabets Heaven Remix) - Suplington - Youngbloods

The Alphabets Heaven remix outshines the lion’s share of original material on the rest of Suplington’s 'Tokyo Reflections' 12” because it comes with such subtle poise. Foregoing drum programming for texture, he ekes his forward momentum out of the key changes.

Back in the Days - Zatox & Brennan Heart - B2S

The word ‘anthem’ gets bounced about a lot these days, especially in hardstyle, but it's rare that a track comes along that is not an anthem for an event but is an instant anthem by the classic definition. This is one of those rare gems. The sentiment of the track is awesome, playing on people's nostalgia that things were better “back in the days” with a hands up, clap along break, then picking up the pace to remind people “back in the days” has gone, and it’s all about the here and now, before delivering a killer techy drop! A simple track that will have seas of ravers clapping along at festivals for years to come, no doubt.
