So no more weeping into your ice cream cone! Don your budgie smugglers one more time, jack these on loud, and celebrate the summer that was with Document One!
"Can't Go (Break Remix)"
Soligen & Type 2
The original is great - the remix is fantastic! We always love what Break does and this tune is no exception. Rolling beats, fat bass and a wicked vocal, we love the vibe of this track.
"Where We Go"
Calyx & Teebee
We've been massive fans of Calyx & Teebee and Doctor for ages, so when they joined forces on this track it was destined to be something special. As you'd expect from Calyx & Teebee the sound design is spectacular, the drums are full of energy and the vocal is proper catchy. Absolute banger!
Noisia & The Upbeats
Two of the most innovative outfits in Drum and Bass come together on this monster of a track. This is unquestionably one of the of the most original tunes of the Summer. The drop is hard hitting and high in energy, the production is flawless and it sounds incredible over a club PA system.
"I Need Somebody"`
Drumsound & Bassline Smith
Huge soundscapes and an old school rave style vocal set the tone in the intro. When the tune drops, the vocal is accompanied by a massive drum break and large doses of sub bass. This tune is epic and will make any club go off!
Erb n Dub & Skope
Every time these two work together it gets better and better. The technical aspect of this track is remarkable and the sound design as per usual is awesome. We love the retro sci-fi style intro and the drop is neuro DnB at it's finest!
