Review: Spearhead bossman BCee celebrates 20 years of releases with this humungous album of new originals and remixes from talented kindred spirits across the board. There's a lot to unpack here with vibes flexing across the entire spectrum. Highlights include the dubwise vibe-out with DRS 'Let Go Of Love', the dreamy star-gazer 'Four Walls' with Ruth Royall and so many remixes it's hard to know where to start... Levela's take on 'Magic Words' (with Degs) balances the grit with the gold perfectly, LSB brings some wonderful new warmth to 'So Right' and Bop's futuristic funk flip on 'Computer Brains' is nothing short of inspired. And these are just a handful of the many highlights on offer. Dig deep and celebrate the consistent contributions of BCee. Here's to another 20 years!
Review: Drum&Bass Arena: The longest-standing, and one of the most respected, platforms for all things jungle D&B celebrates an impressive 20 years in the game with this ridiculously hefty document that pays respect to the genre's every twist and turn. From scene-shattering megahits ("Tarantula", "Feel The Love", "Rock It", "Afterglow") to unarguable historical underground scene-smashing megabangers ("Machete", "Aztec", "Nasty Ways", "The View", "Champion Sound", "Turbulence", "Up All Night", "Deadline", Ram Trilogy's remix of "Pacman") by way of tracks that may have slipped under the radar ("Defcom 69", "What's Wrong", "Song For Lovers") the whole album is loaded to the lips with some of the most important records the genre's enjoyed in the last 20 years. Time to get nostalgic, time to fill those holes in your collection, time to educate your dancefloor. Here's to another 20 years!
