No matter what your opinions are on climate change, politics or the pedestrianisation of Norwich town centre, we can all agree that the world needs more good.

It’s Time For Ninja Ninja To Bow Out

It is with a very heavy heart, and after a long period of contemplation, that I have decided that it’s time for Ninja Ninja to close it metaphorical doors for good. It’s been a labour of love over the last 4 and a half years and with the help of Ben, Dan, Ed and Jamie,…

Whiney Makes His Mark On The Scene With His Epic Album Talisman

Since signing to Med School a couple of years back, Whiney has been a surprisingly quiet label resident, with the odd couple of tunes popping up on compilation albums, but not a whole lot more.

QZB – Systems 009

QZB (previously Qbig & Zenith B) are far from new in the scene, with previous releases on Flexout, Demand and, somewhat more surprisingly, Liquicity. Their debut release under their new 3-letter alias is on Critical’s System series; a 5-track valhalla for those who like their textures crispy, their rhythms techy and their bass subby. Opening…

Pola & Bryson’s Debut Album Gets A Stunning Makeover

Pola & Bryson’s intelligent brand of Drum 7 bass has quickly propelled them into a duo you’d be idiotic to miss. There’s something unique and truly exciting about the way in which they construct their music, gone are the cheesy synths and forgettable minimalism that characterises a lot of light stuff these days, replaced instead…

GLXY – Butterfly Effect EP (Soulvent Records)

We have, in the past, predicted big things for dynamic duo GLXY. Their appearance left, right and centre in the Drum & Bass world, most recently with their lovely single Proposition / Mind Less, proves we were correct in our prediction. The next release for this pair of producers, the Butterfly Effect EP, sees them…
