EAR & DRUM SESSION: 210 – Feel the Floor

Dance floor D&B is flooding the release schedules at the moment, and it feels like the opening up restrictions around the world has inspired a lot of artists to try get people back to the dance.

This mix has some absolutely belting shufflers kicking off with Breaks rework of L-Side & MC Fats – High Times. In a similar good time vein is Paul T & Edward Oberon feat. Cleveland Watkiss – Music’s Got Soul. But to be honest all the tunes in this mix have that heady mix of euphoria, bass lines, beats and solid production that make you want to nod your head and move your feet.

Ear & Drum Session: 201 – Rollin’ Dirty

We’re back to some contemporary beats after the 200th Anniversary sets with a mix of rollers from 2020-21. These tracks are almost a genre on their own with their tuff but rolling beats and dirty basslines. They feel a bit more accessible and floor friendly that the usual hardcore D&B tracks and give a bit of a nod to the older Jump Up sound of the early 2000s.

Artists like Buunshin, Mikal and Was a Be are definitely leading the pack along with players like Workforce and Breakage in this sound. This set features work from Mikal’s amazing Metalworks LP which was packed full of tuff rollers and definitely a highlight for Metalheadz late last year.

As hard as some of these tracks are, it is almost impossible not to nod your head and have a smile while you’re at it.
