Belfast’s Calibre delivers a moody, cinematic two hour mix. Featuring brand new productions alongside music from Mala, Alix Perez, Dbridge, the late great Marcus Intalex, and even some rare BBC sound effects LPs!
Frictions first ‘Tribute Mix’, Taken from his Monday night DNB Show. 1-4 am GMT on BBCR1 & 1Xtra. This is something he’ve been wanting to do on his show for a long time. V is one of the labels that helped him to discover this music and is easily one of his favourite ever dance music labels. Hope you like!
Russia’s premiere drum & bass export Enei returns to close out 2015 with his eagerly awaited sophomore album, ‘Rituals’. Following up on his 2012 debut long player ‘Machines’, Enei shows off a defiantly more mature sound palette drawing influence from across the drum & bass spectrum from his trademark tech nasties through to the deep subliminals from an array of collaborators. With 15 new tracks on offer ‘Rituals’ is another triumph for an artist moving ever onwards, marking the start of Enei’s new chapter.
Mr. Pinkman aka Halogenix aka Ivy Lab Member delivering a podcast for the seek sick sound series. Really nice mixup from hiphop to bass to drum and bass.
Back in 2010, Gilles Peterson recorded a special Brownswood Basement show focusing on the evolution of drum & bass through the 90s and into the 00s. It was by no means a comprehensive history of the genre, but it did represent an excellent snapshot of the tunes that struck a chord with Gilles back then. 100% vinyl (and acetates), Gilles spent the best part of a day rummaging through hundreds of records and picked out around 40 of his favourite tracks from the likes of Alex Reece, Peshay, Goldie, Drumagick, Roni Size and Photek… then @alex-patchwork got deep in the mix. Here then, is the first hour-long mix that made up that show – no links, jingles or drops – just the music. We hope you enjoy it.
A good classic mix around the millenium, originally appearing on the Palm Pictures label back in 2000, “The 6ixth Session” was Dieselboys best selling mix CD. It features Konflict’s super awesome “The Messiah” which is one of hise favorite drum and bass anthems of all time. The amazing graphic design is by Akira Takahashi and showcases 3D modeling of his head from Rene Garcia aka “Hyperform” who went on to do 3D work for the Matrix and Transformers movies. Suffice it to say, he have always been extremely proud of this particular work. It really helped push drum and bass music to a larger audience in North America.
