Review: Celsius is one of the most beloved liquid labels in the scene, a stalwart of many years which has released music from virtually every name around. Quite a few of those are represented on thus album, including Bcee & Saxxon, Blu Mar Ten and Rene LaVice, all of whom are on top form here. Bcee & Saxxon's remix of 'Always Dancing' by Random Movement is brilliant, a deftly put together jungle stepper that's full of liquid vibes and vibrant, fluttering synth lines. 'Rooftop Romance' by Flaco & Calculon is our other favourite, a soulful, rolling number that has a wicked vocal sample and beautifully punchy drums. Yes boys!
Review: 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.
