Drum & Bass | Drum & Bass Friday

This has to be one of the coolest tracks to open up Drum & Bass Friday. A few days ago Camo & Krooked were invited to make the track of the day for Radio FM4. The duo was given 5 sound samples (Mozart, Falco, Sound of Music, Jodelling, and Cowbells), with the requirement to produce a track using all 5 samples with only 1.5 hours to do it. Below is what Camo & Krooked came up with, and it is clear the skills these two have in production. An incredible job done with the strangest assortment of samples and little time to accomplish anything.

This next track is actually from a release of Dieselboy’s back in 2004. Available for free download as of today, it is unlike anything anyone is used to hearing from Dieselboy. I actually havent heard him produce anything close to Drum & Bass in a long time, his most relative tracks being more Drumstep.

The newest release from Noisia now happens to be one of my favorites of theirs. The vocals are coarse and give off an eerie feel, once Noisia’s heavy sounds break in, chills are sent down your spine. This is an epic Drum & Bass tune.

UKF is known for having not the best in Drum & Bass, but I have to say this remix from Friction sounds awesome. It has great chilled out vibes, with some heavy bass thrown in but more to compliment the track not over power the vocals, kicks, and snare. Just an awesome dance/lounge Drum & Bass tune. It releases September 17th this year.

This next track is the gem of this weeks Drum & Bass Friday. Ragga Jungle, this heavy vocalized tune is perfect. The context of the track is a little sad, but still a work of art. This is the first release off the Curfew Love Riddim.


Wow, this is an incredible Drum & Bass remix of BT. I was shocked when I found out how little people have heard of BT or have even heard any of his work. His original works are great, but his tracks are some of the best to remix.


This track reminds me a bit of Haywyre, due to the use of the Razor style. It a cool sound for sure and now getting to here it in a Drum & Bass setting, I now see many more great uses to the Razor style. Cool and Creative track from Fryonic.


I have never heard a Grimy Drum & Bass tune like this before. It almost sounds as if this is a blend of Garage, Grime, and Drum & Bass. Not sure how other will feel about this track, but I am definitely feeling this new blending.


This is a heavy factory Drum & Bass tune. Listening to it make me think of old Russian warehouses being broken into and holding massive raves. With support of Dieselboy, The Upbeats destroyed this MSTRKRFT track. Big tune.

For this weeks Drum & Bass Friday, I ended with a lot of Liquid tracks. Not that it’s a bad thing, Liquid Drum & Bass is art, very smooth, often beautiful to listen to. Starting off the post is preview of an unofficial remix of Madeon’s ‘Icarus’ by Crissy Criss. This remix sounds awesome. No word on a download release date yet, but it is well worth listening to. Crissy Criss really gave the remix his own sound.

Last track for the post you can’t download, is a clip from iM3’s upcoming album, ‘Silence Before The Storm.’ This Liquid track is incredibly smooth, with a very cool groove that fades in and out on the drop.

Continuing the Liquid of the post is a calm track from Wolftek. I absolutely love the flutes that come in and out throughout the track. If you had a rough day or just want to relax, this is the perfect track for you.

The composure of this track is gorgeous. It is very progressive, with the second drop breaking into more of a Drum & Bass beat.

I get really excited when it is my week to do Drum & Bass Friday, in fact this might be my favorite post to do. I really try to keep variety in this post, offering dance, liquid, and heavier styled Drum & Bass tracks. This first track is an absolute gem that is dance floor ready. Traktion released this track in celebration of hitting 1000 likes on Facebook. I really love the vocals on this track, and the feel good vibes. One of my new favorites for sure.

Next we have a Reggae vibed Drum & Bass tune. Using deeper bass effects, this is an awesome chilled out track using vocals from Bob Marley.

With an almost sad feeling to the track, Paranoid Break teamed up with vocalist RaRCharm really put together a very emotion liquid original. The piano really sets off the infused emotion of this. Despite the sad vibe it gives off, this is a great track.

Before we get to the heavier Drum & Bass I had to squeeze in this last gem. ShockLine is another one of the no body producers I love to stumble upon. What caught my eye about this track was not just that it is a great Drum & Bass tune, but his creativity to blend in a bit of Trance as well. Those of you trying to get on FNT, creativity is a major thing I look for. Do your own thing.
