Heavier D&B has been having a resurgence lately with labels like Metalheadz, Critical and Tech Itch Recordings all pumping out some quality darker beats.
Blocks & Escher’s heavily anticipated Something Blue LP contains the years first big anthem in Something Borrowed, Something Blue while the mysterious Brakken collaboration output has born fruit on their very first release.
A special shout to Trigga & Chimpo who’s massive Who Run Tingz track I finish off with. I’ve been hunting this tune for the last 12 months thinking it was new and only to realise it came out about 3-4 years back. 😛
If you like your beats hard you’ll love this, if you unsure give it a go and who knows you might just grow to love it as much as I do.
