It’s been an amazing ride as we watched Current Value grow throughout the years. His sound design is masterful and a testament to his name. He surely represents the current value of drum & bass production. His Deadly Toys LP on Noisia’sInvisible contains a plethora of massiveness. While mixing noise, bass, synthesized drums and mastering techniques only he can be familiar with CV brings you through a whirlwind of sound. This LP is surely one of the best out there and will be a classic to listen to 20 yrs from now. Get the album here!

The endless pursuit of perfection has driven many men to suffering, the search for an exquisite truth perhaps beyond manifestation. How many minds have twisted and turned on themselves through the pursuit of the elusive purity of their art? A journey that sees true corporeal professionals work with an intensity ferocious and swift enough to resuscitate and bring back mortals from the brink of the endless never, back into the world of the living. He had been one such professional, admired and doted upon by the colleagues who perpetually surrounded him, watching him move and hoping to glimpse his true connection with life and death… but that past was but a blink in his memory and there was no space in his bitter present to touch the repellent flame of the ego he once knew. His true work lay ahead, he had furthered himself beyond such irrelevant truths and opened a world of endless, pure possibility to explore his darkly beautiful, mortal art. His subjects were the dead, puppets of flesh held together through his quick work, re-introduced to the harshness of life in better fitting forms for this ill world, returned to this reality through his skill alone… the power of the REANIMATOR.
MINDSCAPE brings his unique and fierce take on d&b back to his home label with REANIMATOR CHAPTER ONE on EATBRAIN, the first part of a series of 3 EPs, that culminate in the REANIMATOR LP. As one of the imprint’s most recognisable figureheads, Mindscape deftly demonstrates why that’s the case with the 4 tracks within delivering distinct and succinctly powerful ideas to the table. MANBEARPIG carries a swagger dripping with pure and deliberately paced attitude, whilst SHUT DOWN (feat. COPPA) rides on a fast-moving bassline and percussive flurry. FIEND OR FOE executes an effective low-key roller laced with a sinister and restrained edge and DEEP VOID carries the menace of HIJAK’s vocal with exceptional effectiveness.
Carrying a keen awareness of the current motions in the drum & bass genre, and delivering 4 tracks that stay firmly ahead of the curve – MINDSCAPE delivers the premiere neurofunk for EATBRAIN with the REANIMATOR.
I’m a Mefjus and Phace fan through and through. Phace’s highly techno influenced Drum & Bass is amazing. His work from the last two years has been effective in cementing a style only known to come from Neosignal. This release has been out since September but we felt it needed to be revisiting. honestly at first listen, I wasn’t blown away from this release as a whole. While the engineering of each track is masterful, it didn’t touch my soul like some other releases from these talented artist. So it sat on the back burner of my sets until re-listening today. And today, this release is amazing. While it may not be their most creative material. The quality of the tracks put forth are amazing. The free download of Mothership VIP is tastily given. My favorite from this release has to be “Make a Decision.” Check out these bad men as they come together to generate quality Drum & Bass.
The Wastemen EP with Phace is out now! Get it from Neosignal Recordings [digital & limited vinyl]: fanlink.to/Wastemen

United Kingdom is the home of our Drum & Bass soul and they stay true to the sound and the journey in it’s progression. UK native, Kove, is consistent with this feeling in the his latest release. ‘In From the Cold’ EP is a testament to real UK D&B. Kove demonstrate a talent true to only the best producers in the scene. “Ain’t No Love” is a track that can be in any feature film, listened to on the radio, and enjoyed world wide by everyone! This track transcends time with his old school jungle drums, reese bass-line, and beautiful synths. This track connects 2002 and 2050. So odd the hook is “There ain’t no love here anymore” when all I hear from the music is love and passion. Get it 11/24!
The 4 track EP (not including a radio version of Ain’t No Love) has our favorite track on there. A simple bass-line, simple drums, and simple structure than for some reason or other, makes you feel so complex. This song ascends you to another plane of existence. It allows you to look onto the world below and reminds you are more than just human. ‘Valkyrie’ is our pick for this release! Jeez, Kove… You’re a badmon! Get your copy of Kove ‘In From The Cold’ EP on Drum&BassArena, NOW!
Italy has certainly been a place to expect a good trail of Drum & Bass with artists such as Maztek and Akrom. Along with amazing food, Italy has spawned yet another beast. Merikan has been making the rounds on labels like Black Sun Empire’s Blackout Music. His style is what neurofunk aficionados love. Methlab Agency has put out ‘Untameable’ backed by ‘Counter-Insurgency.’ Both tracks are amazing and the title track is such a banger! It’s remeniscent of older State Of Mind music with a hypeness that cannot be tamed. This guy is the future of Neurofunk and I’m proud to be a fan!
Magnetude continues to run through the competition!
Oh my goodness. Eatbrain is slcertainly one of the most respectable labels out there. The curators have the best taste in the neurofunk sound. They just had some slammers released and while we feel they are releasing too much at times, they are blowing us away with every release. With that said, this release is straight fire!
Magnetude rocked a fantastic release with Lifted Music and that track “Now Run” hyped me up so much! Now, with Eatbrain, Magnetude releases what I feel is Eatbrains best release to date. All tracks are hype but our favorites are Press Play and Banshee. Take a listen below and make sure you buy to support this monsterous duo!
