    The first two singles taken from Calyx & TeeBee’s forthcoming album ‘All Or Nothing’ have been heavily supported by tastemakers across the board. Lining up to drop them are Radio 1 DJs Zane Lowe and Annie Mac, UK #1 artists DJ Fresh and Rudimental, Example’s touring partner DJ Wire and scene stalwarts TC and Matrix & Futurebound, to name but a few. And now the duo is ready to unleash the third single from ‘All Or Nothing’, an incredible slice of D&B funk featuring the vocal talents of Kemo.

    Marrying influences from hip hop, funk and mid-‘90s drum & bass, Calyx & TeeBee offer up a distinctly different track that tugs on feelings of nostalgia while pushing the envelope forward. ‘Pure Gold’ is effortlessly fresh, oozing with bouncing hip hop, double bass funk and D&B energy this track will undoubtedly sound great from the car to the club, across radio waves and dance floors alike.

    Wilkinson steps up for the first remix of the package, keeping the orchestral provenance suggested by the intro of the original and rolling it out into a booming, winding bass monster. This is drumstep at its finest, resisting the urge to throw in a million random bleeps, Wilkinson instead infuses ‘Pure Gold’ with his own unique style and creates an absolute killer of a remix in the process.

    Next up Hostage takes ‘Pure Gold’ into serious bouncing house territory. As the punchy drums are punctuated by that infamous horn sample you’re pulled slowly and gently in. Before long Hostage places precision cuts of Kemo’s vocal and the infectious bass loop into the mix along with some carnival snares that ensure this is one of the most infectious 4/4 tracks you’re likely to hear all year.

    Rounding the digital package off Calyx & TeeBee offer up their own track ‘Perspectives’, a sure-fire slice of D&B that’s sure to keep the heads happy. Relentless bass and expertly chosen sound FX all combine with rolling percussion and stunning production to create a perfect dance floor roller.

    Was just about to post this. Pure Gold is tune of the last 5 years or so for me. Absolutely smashes it.

    EDIT: haven't read that part about Wilkinson's remix, say whaaaaaaaaaaaat?!

    I have to say pretty disappointing after the drop. but the intro is such a killer :rslayer:

    I love the rattling of the bass strings.
    I wouldn't be surprised if larry played this himself.

    Afaik he did :)

    Ray: I thought Tidal Wave should have been released early November? So is it gonna hit the streets before the end of October? That would be sweet.

    charlie.joyce: Loadstar imo, considering Black & White was uploaded on UKF last week.
