Are you looking for some of the freshest, most adrenaline pumping drum & bass to get your heart racing and your skank on? Then look no further than the latest mammoth collection of upfront D&B and nuskool jungle anthems from Physmatics Music, who unleash their massive 16 track 'Best Of The Bass Volume II' compilation on all dancefloors to devastating effect.
Sust kickstarts the proceedings with 'Devotion', a dub-flavoured, high-octane slice of D&B perfectly accented with an emotive piano melody and stepping breaks. We are then introduced to the sleek and stealthy 'Going In' by Xeropoint. A moody, sci-fi tech-step number which instantly evokes a classic early noughties Bad Company UK vibe.
Precise takes us on a growling, synth/bass journey with 'Inception', which expertly fuses together a succession of menacing buzz-saw riffs and razor-sharp 2-step beats before we see Gold Dubs & Papa Gee flip the script with their anthemic, feelgood, vocal jungle track, 'Lighters Up', provide some serious bubbling, bassline business to the mix.
The darkness descends with Cynical Gene's homage to the iconic, minimal tech-step sound with '99-00s', a sinister and cinematic slice of dark drum & bass which effortlessly delivers an expertly crafted balance of tension and release. Up next, Dapz carries on the pitch black theme with his heavyweight reworking of Bangta Rights' pitch black, MC vocal led neurofunk beast, 'The Architects Prophecy'.
The pace eases back to a more chilled riddim for Josephs Perceptions' 'Heaven Sent', which receives a sublime relick from the inimitable jungle Don, Nicky Blackmarket and partner in crime, Voltage. Future Shock drops his epic tribal D&B fusion with 'Ancient City', which fuses futuristic soundscapes overlaid with rolling breaks and Shamanistic chants.
Section's 'All Said And Done' opens up the albums second half with it's combination of rock-solid, neuro beats and twisted bassline, set to a series of ethereal, spine-tingling pads, before Subsense & Quadra's hard-edged yet liquid funk tinged 'Don't Stop' delivers some respite from all of the moodiness.
Original junglist, Gappa G steps into the arena alongside Tobias to bring to you some sci-fi soul with the brooding 'Dysomnia', which combines adrenalising amen breaks and deep bass throbs with ominous atmospherics. NYC based producer AnnGree see's her lush 'Give You Love To Me' receive a tearing, amen led, VIP jungle remix from the mighty Dapz that'll set the dancefloors alight.
Future Shock returns once more with yet another monstrous, neurofunk number with the first 'Album Exclusive' track, 'Turn Off The TV', which comes across like an audio equivalent of some kind of towering, Mecha-Godzilla beast. Xeropoint brings forth some more darkside bliss with 'Future Dub Bizniz', a hyper-kinetic fusion of Burial-esque dubscapes set to a relentless 2-step beat.
Sust makes another appearance with 'Remember The Good Times', and brings with him the vocal talents of songstress Clair M to deliver a fast-paced, piano laced before the album is brought to a conclusion by I-Dren's ominous, jungle stepper, 'Side Step', a subsonic bass driven peppered with scuttling breaks and precision crafted, twisted synth notes that'll set your teeth on edge.
The 'Best Of The Bass Volume II' album presents an exemplary selection of drum & bass styles, from rough and rugged jungle, to dark and twisted neurofunk and silky smooth liquid. If you love all styles of D&B then look no further than this massive LP!!!
The Breakbeatscientist's top pick of the album is Section's hauntingly atmospheric 'All Said & Done'.
