5 UK Drum & Bass Tracks That Need To Be In Your Life.

I got bored and decided to piece together a little pack of Drum & Bass tunes that you may not have heard before. If you haven’t, you’re definitely in for a treat, because these liquid, melodic & deep dnb anthems are exactly what you need to get you through the week.

First up, Etherwood reworking a Jakwob piece. Both UK producers & maestros, the smooth, almost Eastern vibe pushes into your awareness slowly. Debuted first on Annie Mac, this silky ethereal vibe

Fred V & Grafix do stellar work out of Hospital Records, but this remix of my favorite Netsky track from 2014 is an absolute gem. Running Low ft. Beath Ditto is a crucial track for any of the distressed party people we all know, with Fred V & Grafix bringing a symphonic feel to the original that I bet even Netsky didn’t see coming.

If you’ve not heard this before, or the words “Strife II” don’t ring a bell, stop what you’re doing and listen to this. Right now. It’s got some of the most powerful composition & production I’ve ever heard from a producer. This kid needs a label to discover him and it needs to happen yesterday. This track is a frisson-inducing tear jerker that would reduce dancefloors to quivering piles of feels. I would pay good money to see this live and I hope it happens

This was on my October 2014 Soundcloud playlist and if you missed it, change that. The heaviness is powerful, but it keeps the energy up surprisingly well.
Keeno is the crown prince of Hospital Records, and with tracks like this, it’s easy to see why. The effortlessness that seeps into every aspect of his production is readily apparent in this track. It’s got the vocal pop that it needs to hopefully even get some radio play in places that actually play drum & bass on the radio. This American is going to go sulk now.

Midnight Music: Laura Doggett – Moonshine (Jakwob Remix)

Laura Dogget - Moonshine (Jakwob Remix)

Jakwob is a name you probably haven’t heard of on the American side of the pond, unless you’re a huge fan of UK dubstep and bass music (like myself). His remixes & original work has been a shining beacon of quality in the dubstep, drumstep & chill bass spaces. This remix of a delicious melancholy tune by the irrepressible Laura Doggett. The irregular bass provides a stunning backdrop for her sublime vocal work to glide along. This is some serious UK underground and Jakwob needs as much exposure as possible, especially when selecting amazing vocal artists like Laura Doggett to work with. Don’t sleep on this one, it’s hoodie weather music, bomp it in good (non-Beatz) headphones in the rain.
