Review: Prolific Parisian producer Naibu has a history of experimentation. This is his latest masterpiece released on Horizons, a label he's built a strong bond with since he first emerged on the drum and bass scene. It's a brilliant play on light and shadow of D&B - between the resonant depths of sub pressure and the glimmers of beauty in his expressive use of instruments and exotic samples that show snippets of life. Rivalling the likes of Break and Calibre with his affinity for creating full bodies of work rather than a succession of singles, Naibu is one of the few producers out there still interested in playing out soundscapes and stories; playing with structure and telling a tale. A gorgeous LP that stands out against the best.

Review: Fast and flowing, Brazillian newcomer nCamargo's latest offering on Soul Deep is a shapeshifting blend of old school drum and bass and Brazilian liquid funk that really hits the spot. Touching techy influences in "Perserverence" and bassy Balkan sounds in "More Than This", it's clear that D&B production is only scratching the surface of this guy's obsession with the genre. Softer sounds bloom from classic liquid tracks "Radiant" and the title track, but it's in the tracks that orbit liquid funk and reach out to other sounds where nCamargo really shines. One to watch.

Played by: Nitri
Review: Brazillian drum & bass prodigy Nitri may only have 137 Facebook fans at the time of writing, but among those who've already shown their support are Andy C, DJ Hype, Bryan Gee, Twisted Individual, Crissy Criss, DBR UK, DJ Hazard, Fathom Audio and Random Movement. Not many producers need more fingers and toes to count their big name supporters this early on in their career but Nitri is something different. He's a Sao Paulo resident whose music errs on the darker edge of D&B, leaning heavily on the industrial sounds of the early days. Both tracks wouldn't be out of place at a Renegade Hardware night which goes to show - if you create what you love, the accolades will come. Flipside track "Route" meanwhile is a low-end minimal hurter. Watch out for Nitri, he's expecting big things and we don't blame him.

Review: Well, here it is, the collab album we've all been waiting for. Drum & bass brothers Nu:Tone and Logistics hit Hospital Records hard with an LP the scene has been crying out for since their first work together a decade ago. A killer combination of Logistic's pure breaks and Nu:Tone's ear for soulful samples, there was little doubt that this album was going to be a huge release for the label, and for Matt and Dan too. Opening with the beautiful haze of lead single "Morning Light", the release heads down different courses to reach various points in the D&B spectrum. The sunshine in "Brown Shoes" is hard to ignore, and interludes like "Escape Pod" are sci-fi journeys into the unknown, an interlude to cast the hard-hitting drama of their follow-up tracks into sharp focus. This is an album as we know and miss them - a piece of work intended to be listened to in one greedy sitting. So find a quiet corner and put those cans on.

Played by: Numa Crew
Review: A bustling bouncer of a jungle tune, "Music Sweetness" tops off the latest release from Italian dance collective Numa Crew. An original within the jungle scene, Numa Crew combine the talents and sounds of all the producers and DJs within their reach to create the sounds they want to hear. Capturing the energy and flow of jungle's dub roots, a fresher drum and bass sound crashes through with devastating effect. "The Border" rumbles and sways under seriously skankable rhythms and perfectly matched vocals and horns. An intelligent dancefloor-driven take on jungle, it's definitely the sound of the summer. All we need now is the sun.
