When you hear a song for the first time, it’s easy to jump to conclusions about the songs meaning, or perhaps what the artist was envisioning while he or she composed it.
In music videos, like Act Natural’s for “Up To The Crime”, it’s captivating to see an entirely new spin on a previous piece of work. The video takes a viewer on a tour of London’s illegal gun trade. There are no actors used and all of the real people from where the video was shot in West London add a scary reality to the already dark story.
As the video twists and turns from alley to club, the melodic, yet powerful builds structured by traveling production duo, Daytrip, keeps your ears just as your eyes.

“Zealots of Stockholm” was already a hefty Trap thumper from Gambino, but there is nothing wrong when a duo gets together to make a booty that bounces a little bit more. Logam and SKS put a twist to this track that wasn’t expected. Trap and Drum & Bass are friends but this duo went in and made them straight up lovers. The drum work is a fantastic partner to the existing bass-line, Logam and SKS know what a booty is all about.

As usual, you really have no idea what you’re about to get into when pressing play on a brand new Mat Zo track – and that’s exactly why we have a bit of a broner for the dude. His bi-weekly Mat Zo Mixes (see Soundcloud) are the epitome of “Doin It Live” – this track confirms that Mat Zo isn’t about genre restrictions. Damage Control quite possibly was one of the best albums to put EDM onto its ass in the last decade and the producer/dj is showing no signs of exhaustion. He’s getting ready to hit the road and break-in his brand new label, Mad Zoo in the coming months – here’s an exquisite taste of what to expect.

Normally drumstep, or drum n bass, aren’t really my cup of tea, besides a few guys like Sub Focus and Kove, but Rootkit has captured my ears and my heart with this latest tune. Anna Yvette, who has mastered working with promising up and coming dance acts, adds an emotive top line to the tune as calm builds lead into frenetic drops. Not your typical drum n bass tune, the track focuses more on the melody and uses the bass line to help guide the track to its early conclusion. Grab the track at your favorite portal below.

British drum n bass production duo Sigma, who made headlines with their”Nobody To Love” single, is back with a jam “Changing” featuring vocals by the talented Paloma Faith, and it’s without a doubt going to be a huge Summer hit. Paloma’s soulful jazzy gospel vocals blend perfectly with Sigma’s drum n bass production, reminiscent if Adele decided to go drum n’ bass, and I wouldn’t be mad at her. The energy on this track is raw, and refreshing, I’m 100% sold! This is a must listen!

We predicted that Collin McLoughlin was an artist to watch in 2014, and we weren’t wrong. Recently announcing his collaboration with Dash Berlin and Jay Cosmic titled “Here Tonight” releasing July 4th via Armada, Collin keeps the momentum going with his interpretation of Dido’s 2003 classic “White Flag” record heard round the world. Incorporating drum-n-bass elements into the original, Collin creates a sonic landscape all his own, continue to impress with his production and vocal abilities.
Alternative, Drum & Bass, Electronic | Max Frost – White Lies (Tune In Crew Remix) // Tune In Crew – Still Waters

Two big new tracks from one of our favorite duos out of France, the Tune In Crew. The first is a high energy, drum n’ bass-infused remix of Max Frost’s “White Lies,” which switches up the vocal blend of the original while weaving in a rich combination of live instruments (is that a maracas?). An unexpected but wonderfully seamless trap break mellows out the vibe midway through before the track hurtles back into a spray of fast-paced kicks. The second track switches gears considerably; drawing inspiration from epic movie soundtracks, the twangy, instrumental “Still Waters” is yearning and bluesy and would no doubt be right at home in a Tarantino montage. Stream both below.
