It’s been awhile since I felt strongly enough about a release to do a lil Beats and Pieces work, but for this release on Viper I’m willing to dust off my keyboard and thesaurus. Rituals/Beyond, by relative Viper new-comer Millbrook (along with Odure & Disprove on Beyond) has tickled my ear holes. The first “A” […]
We love all things Calibre at SB HQ (which isn’t really an HQ, it’s just my office) and this mix by the indomitable DJ Flight tickles all our Calibre feels. DJ Flight – Calibre Tracklist: Uncut – Chinese Silk (Calibre Remix) Calibre – Vice Version – Hustle Calibre – Light Years Calibre – Breathe Calibre […]
One of the blessings of this blog is that I’m inundated with new music on a weekly basis. Some of it is fantastic and some of it just okay, but I know that, whatever I think of it, someone else put in a lot of time and effort making it. Ultimately I am very thankful […]
There’s a small atmospheric drum and bass community on Reddit (/r/AtmosphericDnB) that I follow and one of the users put together this wonderful little collaborative playlist that he’s titled Intelligent DnB. There’s a ton of golden era atmospheric inside and outside the realm of GLR/LGR’s back catalog and it clocks in at more than 48 […]

Just a smooth lil rollers mix from Paul T & Edward Oberon to start off your Monday.

Some of my past favorites are the Cool-Out Corner mix, Fela Soul the De La Soul & Fela Kuti collab and Mos Def & Marvin Gaye double albums. […]
Chimpo is an absolute musical genius. Three jungle “relicks”, from Ella Mai, Rygin King, and Amira respectively, that are so fresh you’d think they were dropped in 1994. To be able to take three very disparate original tracks and craft resonating, classic jungle out of them is just such an impressive skill. It is a […]
The new Akuratyde is here! The new Akuratyde is here! The new Akuratyde is here! That’s right my favorite producer on Blu Mar Ten Music, LA’s own Akuratyde, has just dropped his first full length album and it’s everything I thought it would be…melodic, emotional, uplifting. I can’t heap enough praise onto Akuratyde for his […]
What’s this? Manchester jungle vibes with slick piano work from Chimpo, DRS, Slay, and Ragoloco? Yes, please. An easy Tune of the Day.
