Ilk makes his debut on Blocks & Escher's Narratives label later this month with sublime track 'The Sound Of Falling'.
Released as part of a two-tracker backed by a rowdy tech-step cut from Metalheadz alumnus SB81, ‘The Sound Of Falling’ is a masterclass in width and contrasts of pace, earning it the coveted spot of Killer of the Month in our UK September edition.
SpectraSoul come correct once again with their new 'Silence' EP, featuring certified banger 'Untitled Horn'.
Having made their name as staples of Friction's Shogun Audio label, the London drum & bass duo launched their own Ish Chat imprint in 2016, delivering a slew of EPs and an album — last year's 'How We Live' — since.
Drum & bass heavyweights Chase & Status have launched their new project, ‘RTRN II Jungle’, sharing two brand new tracks this week inspired by the pivotal jungle movement of ‘90s UK.
Marking 15 years since the group started making music together, Chase & Status’ new project is described as more of a “cultural movement” than just an album – though there is an LP on the way.
Drum & bass DJs such as Randall and Andy C and many others have been paying tribute to stalwart DJ/producer Spirit, who has died following a cardiac arrest.
Feeding quality dancefloor tracks into the scene for over 20 years, Spirit - real name Duncan Busto — began his music career working in the Redeye Records shop in Ipswich in the East of England. This somewhat unlikely hub also spawned Photek, Klute and Paul Arnold’s Certificate 18 Records, and it was with Klute that Spirit made his first track.
Nozstock: The Hidden Valley is back for a landmark 20th year! From humble beginnings, it’s gone from being pretty much a garden party to now welcoming 5,000 revellers to the Herefordshire countryside. The family-run event has proved without a doubt that it can stand the test of time, and returning to what can still be described as the quaint, boutique festival for a second year in a row feels like something of a homecoming for DJ Mag.
The specially brewed Nozstalgia beer is flowing freely, and the locals are as friendly and up-for-it as ever. As always the rolling kicks of psytrance emanate from the Coppice stage (carefully placed slightly away from the rest of the fest) throughout the day and night, while there are daytime dub offerings down at The Elephant’s Grave.
The highlight, however, comes as somewhat of a surprise on Saturday afternoon. Attracted purely by the fantastic name, Pengshui — the new rap/metal project from MC Illaman, Submotion Orchestra’s Fatty and Pravvy Prav — tear apart the Garden stage, and on their very first show!
If there’s one holy grail for any producer looking to make their own stamp in any genre, it’s this: to sound unique. Ridiculously easy (and pretty obvious) to say, painfully hard (and pretty frustrating) to achieve. But it seems 22-year-old west country d&b flexer Liam Ralph has definitely found his own solution to approaching this age- old conundrum.
One of London’s newest, most exciting venues, The Cause, is hosting a charity Drum & Bass BBQ pool party on 2nd September.
Ulterior Motive are amongst the headline acts set to play when DJ Mag Bunker takes over the Underworld stage at the world's biggest drum & bass festival, Let It Roll, on Friday 3rd August.
Pendulum have dropped their debut remix album, ‘The Reworks’.
After years of silence, the five-piece announced the album back in February.
Last month, Skrillex teased his remix of 'The Island Pt. 1', which features on the album.
DJ Seinfeld, Moby and Knife Party are among the other acts who reworked Pendulum tracks for the release.
