Stupid questions I have asked people about drum and bass in my time include (but are not limited to):
- Can I call this fast half-time?
- Are producer's allowed to play other producer's tunes at festivals
- What is that pipe patting sound in 'Animals' (I really like the pipe clanging sound).
A moron? Perhaps, but at least I'm ready to learn!
The answers, FYI, are a follows:
Fast half-time is normal time.
Yes - clearly yes.
I still don't know, SEND HELP.
Point: Both morons and non-morons alike are allowed to appreciate music - it is a gift.
"Monster" - Truth ft. Strikez [Disciple]
Showing my true colours by swapping out Maduk for this twisted piece of greatness. So sick. Also, FYI, hot tip - THIS is halftime.
"Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? (TC Remix)" - Moby [Black Lacquer]
Moby hits the big time! This has been stuck in my head all bloody weekend. You have been warned.
"Undone" - Alix Perez & SpectraSoul ft. DRS [1985 Music/Ish Chat]
Slap SpectraSoul and DRS on absolutely anything and I'd be on board with it.
"Nobody Cares" - Frankee [RAM Records]
A cry for help or simply a damn good track? You're alright Frankee - I think you're pretty set.
"Break Away (Gydra Remix)" - Dropzone
Found this by accident and I'm so flipping glad I did.
"What Bass" - Andy C [RAM Records]
The bad man from RAM can do no wrong.
"Get Dirty (VIP Remix)" - Mob Tactics [Viper Recordings]
Mob Tactics have stumbled upon the conclusion that they can n fact get dirtier. Going the whole hog -full mud puddle immersion with this VIP.
"Giant" - State of Mind [Eatbrain]
Mind melt from the SOM boys, back to their usual debauchery!
"S.T.A.Y. (Delta Heavy Tribute)" - Hans Zimmer
Delta Hot n Heavy have done an absolute doozy on this far tamer original from the 'Interstellar' soundtrack.
"Alone In The Dark" - S.P.Y [Hospital Records]
Saving the best for last! 'Alone In the Dark' is Beatport's numero uno and very nicely done indeed.
