This mix is being re-hosted for ASC. His Covert Operations label was one of the finest atmospheric D&B labels, not only for it’s quality music, but also for it’s constant output of new talent from around the world. When the label folded last year it left a huge hole in the D&B landscape that still hasn’t been properly filled to this day. Even though his label has shut down ASC has gone on to bigger and better things joining up with the mighty dBridge on his NonPlus+ / Exit / Autonomic labels.
The Global Connections series (volumes 1-6) broke so many great producers and gave them their first chance to be heard. This mix is an hours worth of what I considered the best tunes from the series. If you like sci-fi beats and atmospheric melodies this will put some buoyancy in your floatation tank.

This was requested by Shawn and it has lead me on a merry dance trying to find it. Once again another mix that slipped through my archiving and had to be provided via the kindness of strangers (in this case Bunnies On Heroin) who thankfully had a copy on their MP3 player. Big ups to you for sorting it out.

First up this mix has nothing to do with the D&B outfit Instramental. In fact at the time of mixing I had never heard of them. What this mix does contain is loads of instrumental D&B that has a harder edge to it. So if you like melodic D&B that still maintains something of the mentalist about it then you’ll probably like this mix.
Big ups to ChaNinja again on the requesting of this one.

You don’t care though, because the weird guy has a cute sister.

You’re still slightly spangled, but because you’ve been banging it all night, anything too heavy is going to do your head in.
