The year 2019 is slowly but surely coming to an end. It was a very strong and interesting year for drum & bass. A lot of good drum & bass was released, many albums, songs and EP. In this article, I have selected only the best, most popular and the best of what this year has given.
Enei – Widowed
Let’s start with this Enei’s bomb track. From his hometown of Russia, he produced one of the top experimental songs for me, which immediately turned me into a bassface monster.
UrbanDawn ft. Tyson Kelly – Come Together
First I heard this song in an some unkown mix with the clear conclusion that I just had to have it! However, I found that the track is only available as UrbanDawn’s unreleased bootleg (pirated / remix). But the parties were able to make a deal on copyright, for our happiness, because we can hear it as much as we like.
Dimension – Desire
The summer drum & bass anthem this year was undoubtedly Desire by Sub Focus & Dimension. Excellent energetic thing.
Anile – Constant Reminder ft. MC DRS
DRS is probably the best drum & bass vocalist right now. Together with Anile they have created a great mega emotional thing that will not leave anyone cool.
DLR, Ill Truth & Gusto – New Era
Essentially still a fresh song from the Sofa Sound Bristol kitchen. The combination of DLR, Ill Truth and MC Gusto created a funky experimental thing with an interesting synth.
Sub Focus – Solar System
Also, the highly energetic thing with the atmospheric intro collapsed the stage at all summer drum & bass festivals and can still be heard in clubs and halls.
Current Value – End Game
Current Value songs are unique, creative and energetic. This straight to disgusting thing that came out on Korsakov Compilations pt. 2 shows the master’s skill.
UK Apache with Shy FX – Original Nuttah 25 (Chase & Status Remix ft. Irah)
Chase & Status released their new album “RTRN II JUNGLE” inspired by 90’s jungle drum & bass this year. They even went to Jamaica to record the songs. Their trip also went to this remix to the absolute classic Original Nuttah 25.
Lenzman – Roseland
While listening to this song, I still have a strong memory of my trip two years ago in Sardinia, namely the Sun and Bass festival. This song reminds me perfectly.
LSB & DRS – Faded
LSB & MC DRS is a well known combo. Together we can listen to them in their Space Age mixes and now they have released the album The Blue Hour. From several of the jewels, there is a song called Faded, which was made with a clip.
In me these songs resonated most in 2019. In the comment you can write what you think I did not mention 🙂
