I have a deep abiding love for the sound of atmospheric, or “intelligent,” drum & bass. While the Good Looking crew led the charge, there were a ton of other labels and producers make high quality tracks too that made that entire era a plethora of auditory heaven for me. I still spend hours listening to those tunes every week.
Heist has created his “Past Intelligence” mix series to celebrate that sound and he’s done a bang up job. He goes right in with the original, Aliens sampled “Hypersleep.” From there it’s a relaxing, bass-laden trip down memory lane. Volume 2 should, hopefully, be up soon.
