These are the breaks! Super-longstanding D&B bastion Drum&BassArena unleash their first EP in over 10 years with a special dedication to the driving drum fusion that's powered all our favourite jungle jams: The breakbeat. It's an all-star cast too... Bladerunner does his thing with a classic subby wobble and skippy breaks, Shimon gets his bouncy skank on with Darrison on "Believe It" while June Miller, James Marvel & MC Mota flip the breaks into a steppier, more fractured dancehall/jungle/madness switch up on "Don Dada". Those in need of a hardcore injection of rave purity should seek and support John B's ruthless "ENERGY" and A.M.C & Turno's glacier-blasting tech-jump melter "Ice Cold". Dedication's what you need.
Long-time compadres A.M.C and the duo previously known as Mattix & Futile pair up once again for a special Viper doublet. With Ayah Marar on vocal duties "Hardest To Love" will instantly win hearts. A much deeper, soulful arrangement than you'd expect from either party, Ayah's brought out their most sensitive side with real style. Come here for the ruffage? Look no further than the delicious contrast that is "Ova Dose"; gritty, razor-edged bass that creeps up from groan to growl and beats that could shatter tungsten, it's exactly what A.M.C and Six Blade are loved for... And they don't disappoint.
