Three More Flavours

Goldie - Life And Death (2013)

Same as last time: three tunes with different takes, kicking off with this free download put out last year by Metalheadz mainstays Commix. It's been stuck at the bottom of my payer since it's originally a .wav which is why it's taken me so long to post it, still check it out 'cos it's a loveley cut of liquid drum & bass.

Moving back along the timeline we got some drum & bass from it's heyday around the turn of the millennium from legendary label Moving Shadow. I remember hearing this one on the 99p 01.1 compilation I picked up form a HMV back then and the tune is still just as good. It's a little slower, a little more menacing than your usual affair and I love it, its a vibe you don't really get with the modern drum & bass scene (or at least the modern liquid funk).

Rounding it off with another freebie from a few years back from Stenchman's partner in grime Suspect. Can't say I follow him much outside of his stuff on these compilations, but this tunes been a firm favorite for about 3 years now. Much more on the chill side of the spectrum, the bass isn't going to rattle your desk too much and those little flourishes throughout are just fantastic.
