Something a little different: Lost City ft. Moia Bri - Dangerous (JNGL VIP)

Do you remember the stateside dubstep producer Noah D? It’s been about 10 years since he really did his thing at that tempo, and as of late he’s been working on the Lost City project with No Thing, doing damage with their particular brand of dnb, which they christened JNGL. This particular JNGL VIP adds a sinister edge to the bright and bombastic “Dangerous,” which is led by an enticing vocal performance from Moia Bri. That’s actually what caught me; her vocals riding the chunkier side of that bass is what did me in. It’s an unexpected number, one that feels as close to the islands as it does to the stompers in the middle of the rave. We play tunes like this LOUD, with eyes closed. If you want your hands to remain in the air, so be it.

All mixed up: Noisia Invites

Last week, Noisia finished their run with the appropriately titled Closer; what better way to put your final statement on your time as one of the greatest drum & bass outfits than a pulsating hour of drum & bass, live in front of an eager crowd. Shit gets emotional from the onset, featuring the crew tearing through their catalog, drawing for everything from their well-received Skrillex collaboration “Supersonic” (amongst a plethora of collaborations) to later, where they run through a medley of their original tunes that immediately dive into monstrous remixes of said tunes. (Skeptical’s “Diplodocus” remix is a grower, trust.) The full video dropped earlier this week, and is a must-see for anyone who: (a) loves drum & bass, (b) loves Noisia, (c) is stuck at home and can’t get out to the club, (d) has NEVER been to a drum & bass massive before, or (e) all of the above! So long, Noisia, and thanks for all the beats!

Random 2004 Banger: Accident & Emergency feat. Gamebwoy - Flyest Gangster

Because I listen to a lot of drum & bass, tunes like this may stand out more to me than others. I remember Bailey playing it on BBC Radio 1Xtra back in 2004, and having to chase the tune down. I didn’t know Bassbin had a sublabel, Looney Toonz, that would drop lowkey bangers like “Flyest Gangster.” Produced by a couple of Bassbin DJs going by the name Accident & Emergency, it felt like one of those jungle bootlegs I’d hear back in like ‘96 on college radio stations. At the time, Bailey was playing a lot of Bassbin material, which was more on the Breakbeat Science side of things. Looney Toonz went for the more upfront jungle style. Essentially, I just remember that this has a quick bassline switch that will forever be my shit. The aforementioned JNGL VIP of “Dangerous” is what made me remember this bit. And now this hook will be stuck in my head for the rest of the day.
