Mayhem & Logam – Orion [Free Download]

8 12 2013

Mayhem & Logam give us a taster of forthcoming D&B releases with Orion, a tidy mix of crisp drums, stark synth stabs and crunchy bass. This one is more about groove than a huge drop, but the attention to detail in the breaks and synth work is impressive. Check it out and grab yourself a free download below.





In The Mix…Nickbee

28 04 2013

Nickbee steps up to provide a special edition of the regular NeurofunkGrid Talents mix series, serving up just shy of an hour’s worth of beats including tunes from Noisia, The Upbeats, Phace and Mayhem. The mix is packed full of dubs too, so expect the unexpected, and expect it dark and heavy.





Gridlok – American Dream [Project 51]

20 03 2013

While drum & bass is well known for it’s dark side, it’s still unusual to hear of tracks inspired by real-life tragedy. Gridlok‘s latest release for his own Project 51 imprint came about via a rooftop suicide heard from his studio; doesn’t get much darker than that.

Gridlok’s original delivers a melancholy roller which is well worthy of your attention, but the remixes are even better, with the best coming from Sinistarr who delivers a chopped up jungle-esque edit, SPKTRM who brings out the industrial half-step darkness and Mesck who drops the tempo for a warped, gritty dubstep refix. You can even pick up the SPKTRM remix as a free download.

Check out the previews below and grab the release from your favourite digital outlet.
