As the year draws to an end it’s generally a time of reflection, to assess all the good things that happened over the past year.
We’ve done our own look back on the past few months with the release of our compilation album ‘The Annual‘. It was really satisfying to see all the great music we released and got us fired up & raring to go for 2022!
As well as getting gassed by our own output we’ve also been reminiscing over all the festivals & events we attended over the summer. It was a welcome contrast to the lockdown summer of the year before. While things still weren’t 100% back to normal this year we had a good run of great raves this year.
We were lucky enough to attend a host of amazing D&B parties around the UK. Events such as MADE in Birmingham, Sequences & Westfest in the South West, the D&B events on Hastings Pier, The Prototypes Boat Party, Southbound Festival & Hospitality Weekend In The Woods in London, the latter of which recently won the ‘Best Festival‘ award.
We also skanked out on the dancefloor at Andy C’s return to the Wembley SSE Arena.
JunoDownload Best Of 2021
The team at JunoDownload have been looking back at all the amazing drum and bass music that got released over the past 12 months. The JunoDownload staff collected together the must-have releases of the year and published their ‘Best Drum & Bass Of 2021’ selections on their website.
Listed in no particular order, their selection is a who’s who of the 2021 drum and bass scene. The JunoDownload Best of 2021 list covers all styles & sub-genres of D&B.
Artists such as Amplify, DJ Hazard, Shy FX & Breakage, Bou, Voltage, Mozey, Upgrade, Levela and Ego Trippin all left their musical mark.
Some of the labels representing the best of 2021 include Break’s Symmetry Recordings, Spearhead, Born on Road, the mighty Playaz, Grid Recordings, Fatman D’s Biological Beats imprint, V Recordings & Alix Perez’ 1985 Music.
We were also pleased to see Harley D, one of our own label artists, getting an impressive 3 tracks listed with his releases on Serial Killaz, Grid & Timeless Audio.
It’s Not Over Yet
We still have a few more days left of 2021. Fingers crossed, we’ll be able to celebrate the end of the year in style, dancing to some of the tracks from the best Drum & Bass of 2021 selection, at one of the many New Years Eve events taking place around the country.
We have plenty lined up for the new year & beyond so be sure to check back here on a regular basis for all your drum & bass news.
