Suicide Bassline - Mefjus - Critical Music

Along with schnitzel and The Sound of Music, Mefjus can be added to the list of great things to hail from Austria. In just a few short years Mefjus has quickly become one of the most respected producers within his area of drum & bass, with each release being highly anticipated. This first track from his ‘Emulation’ album sampler displays all the attributes which have propelled his career; ridiculously tight drums, crisp scuttling shuffles and a twisted techy bassline.

In and Out of Love Pt. 2 - Holly Johnson - Pleasuredome

Following the glorious, posthumous versions of ‘Follow Your Heart’ by Frankie Knuckles’ Director’s Cut, the mood this time simmers with dreamy Balearic mixes from Douze and Clique.

Audacity - Oleg Zubkov - Ego Shot Recordings

There's a continuing fascination for progressive breakbeat sounds in eastern Europe that almost — but not quite — feeds into the current trend towards deeper flavours in the UK. Unfortunately, Ukraine's Oleg Zubkov does not seem to have quite got the message. 'Audacity' has atmospheric washes and heady progressive effects in spades, but seems to be harking back towards that awful era when every breakbeat producer tried to shoehorn in distorted dubstep b-lines for no other reason than Skrillex seemed to be doing rather well for himself. It even has a completely pointless half-time breakdown. Psy-tech infused remixes from Dre Hectic and Slugware don't do a whole lot to improve matters, though the latter is different enough to make it worth a listen. 

Nomina EP - Simon Hinter - Tenth Circle

German producer Simon Hinter turns out a blinder for Tenth Circle. 'Regenmacher' is an atmospheric builder, while 'The Cop' and 'Adhs' recall early years Bob Sinclar. Marvellous.
