Breeze Block has hooked up with fellow producer/musician Skyro to craft “Too Late”. A melancholic guitar slowly slips along with a melodic piano part subtly building and then boom in it comes. A big sidechained hook, unrelenting beats, pianos and a simple female vocal hook give Too Late’s menacing drive a lighter faster edge, whilst slyly impassioning the listener. Deceptively addictive drum and bass from Breeze Block and Skyro.
On the flipside “In Good Time” is a quality Drum and bass dance floor roller with a haunting vocal which repeats the mantra of ‘wasting time’, experiencing this roller is anything but that. With a ghostly off-beat synth stab, lush Drum and Bass soundscapes, a tumbling melody and perfectly placed bass lines, plus some interesting background instrumentals whilst maintaining a fast pace. In Good Time is sure to keep everyone moving no matter what.

XYRecords Drum and Bass artist Bipolar has two new drum and bass releases, in June and July 2011.
Some may call is minimal other may call it deep. Bipolar’s follow up release, The Deal, strives to cement the boys’ unique sound and approach to Drum and Bass production. Incorporating live guitars and clarinet, “The Deal”, sits midway between traditional liquid and minimal Drum and Bass creating deep vibey textures whilst still maintaining the tempo and attitude that die-hard listeners of the genre have known to love.
The flipside of the single, Funkia, is darker kind of tune. Rolling and deep, Funkia strives to pick up where Bipolars previous release, Exige, left off. The hypnotising grooves, rolling bass, and eastern vocals create a darker sonic landscape. Dont let this dissuade you though as the tune is more that capable of filling the dance floor.

What is Drum and Bass?
Drum and Bass (commonly abbreviated to D&B or DnB) is a type of electronic dance music which emerged in the mid 1990s. The genre is characterized by fast breakbeats (typically between 160–190 bpm, occasional variation is noted in older compositions), with heavy bass, sub-bass lines, and occasional infra-bass lines. Drum and bass began as an offshoot of the United Kingdom rave scene of the very early 1990s. Over the first decade of its existence, the incorporation of elements from various musical genres lent to many permutations in its overall style.
Well known Drum and Bass artists include Adam F, Goldie, London Elektricity, High Contrast, LTJ Bukem, D.Kay, DJ Fresh, DJ Dara, DJ Zinc, Shy FX, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, DJ Hazard, DJ Hype, Photek, Loxy, Sub Focus, Future Prophecies, Roni Size, Chase & Status, Ed Rush & Optical, DJ Ink, Andy C, Congo Natty, E-Z Rollers, J Majik, Source Direct, Erb N Dub, Dillinja, Danny Byrd, Concord Dawn, Brookes Brothers, Logistics, Matrix & Futurebound, Nu Tone, Sun King, Cyantific, Plug, TC, and Dirtyphonics.
