Berkshire drum and bass legend and Beta Recordings head honcho John B is back! The man notorious for his crazy hair-doos as much as he is for coining the term 'electro-step', there's no doubt his contributions to the drum and bass sound over the last 20 odd years have been significant. To commemorate the 18th anniversary of his seminal Visions album, it gets remastered with a whole bunch of bonus tracks for your enjoyment. Includes the Moog mix of his incredible collaboration with DJ SS "Slamfunk". There are a whopping 49 tracks on offer here including bonus tracks of his Vangelis style drum and bass synth odyssey "Starburst and loads of brilliant extended and alternative versions of his revered "Jazz Session' series of liquid drum and bass explorations.
Cheers; here's to another 20 years John B!
Get ready for your summer anthem incoming. As uplifting as drum and bass can possibly be with the unmistakable sound of John B smashing away at the controls like his life depends on it, everything is at the top of its game from Shaz Sparks' stunning vocals to the fluxxed-up synth build, giant bassline and dancefloor savvy stepping rhythm. It's got it all. The deep house mix smooths out the percussion and gets bodies swerving with a lithe bassline. Finally the release rounds off with a lush live mix, showing off a little something of John B's true talents and Shaz Sparks' gorgeous voice. One for lovers of emotion-charged raving.
