The magic number of these charts is generally 10 - but everything I tried to rustle up is too new, too hot, too unreleased...So in honour of that, there are two bonus tracks included today as this week as I feel like I owe you all a bit more! A little sumfin' sumfin' if you will. Hooray! Enjoy the extra sprinkles on your dnb sundae kids, and rest assured there is plenty more where that came from...
Want more? Check the previous Top 10 Drum and Bass chart right here.
Bit of a waiting game to track down a link for this one but good things take time!
Kove ft. Moko (Kove’s Reesey Lover VIP)
Kove is good, Moko is good, VIP's are generally good. My review of this song...awful. Ah jokes, it's GOOD.
It's the underlying hum on this track that got my attention amidst four brilliant tracks on an EP of the same title. It's the first time I've seen and taken time to consider the phrase 'musically-led D&B', but it sums these offerings up quite nicely. Mini-mix here if you want it!
"Rainbow (Original Sin Remix)"
Modestep & The Partysquad
Although Modestep are described as an electro-rock hybrid band, the addition of Original Sin here rockets this track into the dnb stratosphere...
8th Dimension ft. nClear
Killer assembly of blip, baps and ting-tings from the Med School magic cupboard.
“Paper Faces (Ivy Lab Remix)”
Lenzman ft. Martyna Baker
Sabre, Stray and Halogenix - with names like that you'd want to produce some kick ass music to live up to the hype. And oh they do...
“Lowlife (Maztek Remix)”
Italian producer Maztek goes in heavy with a neuro twist.
Smooth ft. Rhymestar
Try to not play favourites usually but this is epic! Number 1 this week, hands down. With allusions to Pendulum in the intro, then a straight morph into a paint stripping, pants ripper.
Phace & Misanthrop
The sex is selling it alright - pure sauce, straight stomper!
“Not Letting Go”
Matrix & Futurebound remix
Tinie Tempah & Jess Glynne
Something a little light hearted to go out on - right boppy piece of work for your guilty pleasures box.
Unreleased exclusive track from Viper Recordings Presents Drum & Bass Summer Slammers 2015 right hurrr...can not wait to get at the 33 other (mostly exclusive cuts) on this album when it drops on July 5th.
"King (Culture Shock Remix)"
This is a proper tune but it seems to have mysteriously disappeared off the internet - excepting a guest appearance on the Skank and Bass Facebook page....which coincidentally I urge you to check out anyway!
