NSD reviews the best of December’s Drum & Bass… Lynx – Where Are You? EP [Hospital] Lynx’s debut release on Hospital features four diverse and boundary pushing tracks. Title track Where Are You? has a funky vibe that’s pretty unique. Bee’s Knees is my pick of the release with its heavy rolling bassline. Hurting is a well crafted vocal track, stripped down and all the better for it. Finally Blue, from the beats to the rolling basslines, is pure funk. https://soundcloud.com/hospitalrecords/sets/lynx-where-are-you NickBee, Soligen & Type 2 – Iridium EP Part 2 [Citrus] Part one of the EP was good, this…

Kmag’s Ryan Origin talks about the most essential D&B releases for the 50th week of 2014. VARIOUS – FUTURE BEATS: THE ALBUM [31 RECORDS] I’ll come right out and say it: This is my favourite single D&B release of 2014. If anything deserves the descriptor “essential”, it’s this compilation. Diversity and style abound everywhere you look within this stacked 24-track album. The incredible hyper-Jungle, subterranean halftime, banging growl-fests, moody soul, and 80’s synth-pop found here all represent the many facets of what can only be “Future Beats”. I’m a long time fan of both Doc Scott and his label, and…

After technical difficulties took us offline for a few days we are back at it with our Essential Releases for Week 49. ANNIX – DIGITAL EP [PLAYAZ] Hype and Pascal’s golden boys turn up the heat on this massive five-track banger that feels like the soundtrack to some futuristic horror film where murderous robots have come undone. From the filthy title track on through to the wobbling beast known as “M33” and the dizzying Alice in Wonderland-inspired “Have a Party,” there’s no doubt that this is a release specifically designed to have the kids pounding the walls begging for more…
