Filipendula Ulmaria – ‘As the sun goes down and your day fades away just remember tomorrow’s a new day, a whole new day, now let it play’. Awesome chords and fluid bass give way to one of the sharpest remixes ever IMO by Marcus Intalex (RIP) utilising Little Dragon’s vocals with tight drums, bouncy bass, splashy hats, mesmerising piano harmonies and such tight production. I have been delving further back into Calibre’s extensive production and finding more gems I haven’t mixed with like ‘Free’. I am so glad I discovered Electrosoul System as their easy going free flowing style of DnB encapsulates so much of what I love about the genre (around 19 mins, wow). Nu:Tone has long been a favourite artist and ‘The Moment’ is a delightful example of his talent with powerful humming bass, piano, violin and angelic vocals by Lea Lea. In:Most are an awesome new artist I discovered and their album is bang on the hot styles. MSDOS album is a work or art. Haunting ethereal sounds of Calibre’s ‘Synthetic’ blended with Nelver’s great rework of Seba’s classic ‘Painted Skies’ (keeping true to the original while adding something new). With Whiney’s BIG remix of London Elektricity’s Tenderless you’d be right in guessing this mix features more Hospital Records artists than some of my others – and that’s no bad thing! Big dubby bassline from Speedwagon and Sikey overlaid with an absolute fav tune from years ago by Vandera that ‘Rings the Alarm’ for a classic funky liquid DnB section with Calibre asking ‘What To Do In These Times’, the Marcus Intalex & St Files remix of Marky, XRS & Stamina’s seminal LK. Calibre remixing High Contrast and ending with a recently found gem from the rarest of DnB masters The Funktastics.
