A brand-new album from dBridge? What did we ever do to deserve this? We're not sure, but what Weak Or No Signal absolutely is is a treat, a special present to take us into 2021 and it sees dBridge returning to 170bpm in a manner we haven't heard in quite some time. Almost this entire album sits at drum & bass tempo and the creative ethos present chimes with dBridge's spotless history of production innovation: sparse, abstract and yet grounded within the urban groove of drum & bass' storied past. Let's start at the end, with final track 'They're Listening', which sets the percussive tone early on and doesn't stray from it, a remorseless stepper which is placed in eerie soundscapes and foreboding ambience. There's bouncy basslines on 'Dark Plains', hypnotic synth work on 'HMT13' and nonchalant funk on 'N0rm'. A sensational LP from one of the masters.
