Here we go! A new episode of B&B podcast.

A fairly colourful mixture of moods and vibes, going from one to another in a heartbeat, just like I like to do, mixing it all up.
It's mostly new music, some dubs in there, and I'm wrapping it up with a Lightless dub from Moresounds
Had a good caffeine rush on when I started so I had to down a beer in the middle of the set to calm down a bit (I recommend you enjoy bass music with coffee or beer, or both).

What do you think of the artwork? I'm pretty hyped. Done by Ingrid. That bear may have to watch those nails, though.

Here's the tracklist. Hope ya dig!

Breaks & Beats Podcast #10: ”Focus On The Drums”
[art by Ingrid]

This time, instead of going for more contemporary material, the podcasts focuses on wicked drumworks in D&B.
A lot of this stuff is old, and I wanted to include tunes from whom I consider to be among the masters of drumworks in D&B.
I've always been inspired a lot by Danny Breaks, early Dillinja, Source Direct (with all their aliases), Fracture & Neptune, Nucleus, Equinox, Seba, Klute...hats off to those guys and their beats.
Put a few humble efforts of mine in there, too, which largely pay homage to those who have inspired me.
There'll be more breaks-orientated podcasts coming.

Play the drums.

Here’s Breaks & Beats Podcast #11.

I went lighter on the breaks this time, reason being the new Fanu album is dropping soon, which will most definitely make listeners overdose on drums and breaks for a while. Plenty of dubs here from dope artists and labels: Fracture, Astrophonica, Cosmic Bridge, Etch, Moresounds, this one will provide you with a lot of something you haven't heard yet. Also has two forthcoming Lightless things. Keep your eye out on all those, as all the unreleased tunes will be dropping soonish.

Fanu – Bad Dreams [Coleco remix] (Lightless)
Danny Scrilla – Riddim (Cosmic Bridge dub)
Etch – Back On The Planet (dub)
Etch / Big L – All Black [Etch reshade] (dub)
Sully – Crystal Cuts (Astrophonica dub)
DJ Madd – Duppy (Cosmic Bridge)
Overlook – Distant Blues (31 Records)
ReDraft x HP. Ritch – Champion Killa (dub)
Moresounds – Etho (31 Records)
Sam Binga – I Tol U (Critical)
J:Kenzo – Rum Punch (31 Records)
Overlook – Gumshoe (Rupture)
Seba – Jungle Music (Secret Operations dub)
SDS – Shadow People (Lightless dub)
Fre4knc – Rotor (Critical)
SDS – Andromeda (Machinist Music)
Moresounds – What A Party (Cosmic Bridge dub)
