Ear & Drum Session: 176 – Fluent

I built this mix around The Vanguard Project’s self titled debut LP which has so many great tunes on it that I simply couldn’t resist. Spearhead label boss, BCee and Villem’s collaborative project has yielded a bunch of great music down the years and this LP with 12 new tracks and 14 older cuts is living proof just how fruitful the team up has been.

On top of this we have some smashing remixes like Monrroe’s take on BCee’s – Little Bird, Bop’s twist on Come Together by Camo & Krooked and Pacific’s cheeky bootleg of Blinding Lights by The Weeknd. I also thought I’d throw in J Majik’s classic Love is Not a Game just for kicks.

Ear & Drum Session: 174 – Soul Solution

Liquid D&B is on an absolute roll at the moment with beautiful tunes being dropped week aft6er week by some of the scenes most talented producers. This mix focuses around one of liquid’s brightest, Furney and his new Night Life LP on Soul Deep Exclusives. I first came across Furney back in 2008 when he was collaborating with Utah Jazz and he has gone on to produce an envious catalogue of music at a rate most producers can’t match.

Also in the mix is the sampler for GLXY’s much anticipated Research & Development LP, She Sings for Me with MC of the moment DRS. Plus new drops from Ear & Drum favourites Etherwood, Mitekiss and Nu:Tone.

Ear & Drum Session: 169 – Undefined

Another tasty liquid roller featuring some artists I’ve been meaning to call out for awhile now.

First up Workforce AKA Jack Stevens is one half of Spectrasoul and has been absolutely killing it lately. His track ‘Your Moves’ of the EP of the same name is in my top 5 tracks of last year. Secondly, FX909 who has been making quality liquid D&B for almost 20 years has also been on fire of late. And last but least, Monrroe the Cheltenham based producer who’s track ‘You Got Me’ has been stuck in my head ever since it came out.

And an extra shout out to Calibre for finally releasing his remix of London Grammar’s – If You Wait. And wait we did, for two bloody years and it was still totally worth it.

Ear & Drum Session 167: Full Phat

First mix of the new decade and it was made on the first day of the new year. Full of phat rollers and liquid niceties from the back end of 2019, I really should call this mix the DRS sessions. The MC from Manchester is all over this with collaborations with LSB, Artificial Intelligence and Anile. If you haven’t checked out his The Blue Hour LP with LSB it is well worth a listen.

We also have new tracks from Klute’s new Whatever It Takes LP, the return of D&B royalty Peshay plus both sides of Seba & Paradox’ latest 12″ on their brand new label.

Ear & Drum Session 164: The Other Side

A sweet mix of chilled out Liquid beats from some of the scenes best new and established talent. On the old guard side of things you have DJ Trace doing what I think is one of his first ever chilled out tunes, Calibre remixing Vanguard Project’s – Elation and a very special tune in the fact that is probably one of the last Marcus Intalex (RIP) remixes we’ll probably ever hear in Adred feat. Robert Manos’ – Captivate.

On the newer side of the production fence we have a stack of new Etherwood tracks. This man’s talents know no bounds as he continues to straddle the fence between traditional song writing and D&B. Etherwood is backed up by Adred who’s new EP on Metalheadz was a complete surprise to me, Satl & Ill Truth who’s tune, In Your Soul, receives a very tasty Lenzman remix and T:Base who’s Is It True EP on Fokuz Recordings is well worth a download if you get the chance.

Ear & Drum Session 161: The Turning

Liquid D&B is turning into something a little more mature (for want of a better word) and modern lately and I like it. Led by artists such as Lenzman (check out his Enzo Tape mixes), Technimatic and new kids on the block Dogger, Mindstate & Liam Bailey the sound is more soulful, the lyrics more thoughtful and the vibe smoother than Liquid’s previous iterations.

This is music you can dance, chill or even sing along to. It’s versatility makes it perfect radio D&B that can be played at anytime night or day.

Ear & Drum Session 156: Beautiful Music Pt.2

My second mix sourcing from the ‘Is this the most beautiful D&B tune ever?’ thread on DOA features some amazingly soulful D&B tunes from the year 2000 onward. It’s been amazing fun having a bunch of like minded people program a mix for me as a lot of these tunes I have never put into a mix.

The production roster reads like a who’s who of D&B featuring legendary artists such as Omni Trio, Marcus Intalex (RIP), Klute, Calibre plus Alaska & Seba just to mention a few. Some of these tracks never made it to digital, so I had to dig deep into my vinyl collection to complete the track list.

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did mixing this special dedication to the beauty that is D&B music.

Ear & Drum Session 155: Bare Music

2018 was a great year for D&B seeing the genre swing back into popularity mainly on the back of the quality of tunes being released at the moment. Original producers came out of retirement, people started to flock to D&B nights again and even the US driven bro-step scene seems to be slowly turning to D&B for more inspiration.

This mix features a lot of my favourite producers from the last 12 months such as Seba, Calibre, DKay, Alix Perez and Rockwell mixed in with a bunch of newer headz who are holding their own – producers such as Mister Shifter, Alibi and Circuits, all who have been chipping away for a few years now, are starting to come into their own in terms of being serious talents.
