There’s so much soul in DRS’ vocal. Back that up with Anile’s crisp beats and piano riffs… This tune is deep. Listen to the lyrics then rewind & listen again!
Mefjus, Camo & Krooked – Sientelo
THIS TUNE! Gives mus feelings of big festivals on sunny days. No idea what the lyrics mean, we just know this tune is a whole vibe!

Maybe a little bias adding a track from our label, but we signed it so clearly love it! Oversights liquid stylistics are ideally suited for sunny weather
Friction ft JP Cooper – Dancing (Dawn Wall Remix)
Close your eyes & let JP Coopers silky smooth voice take you somewhere else. Dawn Wall expertly roll out this remix of Frictions anthem
Wilkinson – Afterglow
We all know this one! Even your friends who aren’t into D&B know this, hence its addition to this summer selection of tracks
Marcus Intalex & ST Files – Universe
A classic from the Metalheadz label. Perhaps the oldest track on this list, but its so timeless it still sounds fresh
Matrix & Futurebound ft Max Marshall – Control
A classic from 2013! Pure hands in the air business. Time to pour another drink and apply a bit more sun screen!
Hybrid Minds – Touch
Who doesn’t love this track? An absolute anthem from Hybrid Minds… One for the whole gang to sing along to!
Alix Perez & Sabre – Solitary Native
Last track of our summer drum & bass selection. Sampling a classic 70’s funk riff this release on SGN Ltd from 2006 is the ideal way to round things off
