The Mac 2 label continues to plough its own distinct path through the world of drum and bass with the release of the second in their Crossfire Sessions EPs, which sees a number of talented names vying for attention. LJ High & Wags team up for "I Know" first, a frantic roller with symphonic touches that elevate it above the competition, while Serum & Paul T balance their tough subs with plaintive vocals that hark back to the days of classic jungle. NC-17 and Fade waste no time in tearing up the floor with the intense wobble and hoover synths of "No One Knows", while JB & NCamargo go for a darkside steppers vibe on "Your Nightmares", which features the kind of twisted bassline you'd be advised not to listen to before bedtime. In a word: essential.
