DC Breaks Take Us To DnB Heaven With Their Top 10 Tracks
The duo give our ears a bashing, choosing tracks from Noisia, Culture Shock and more...
Eyeing a position next to Sigma as the next big names in mainstream DnB, DC Breaks are back with a brand new single - but you know that already because we premiered 'Breathe' Ft. Dave Gibson earlier this year.
The duo have had an 2015, selling-out shows across the UK and casually grabbing headline festival slots on Glastonbury's Arcadia stage and a packed out tent at Bestival, and if this playlist is anything to go by, we're first in line for their shows next summer!
Featuring monstrous tracks from Noisia, Culture Shock and more, take a step into the rowdy world of DC Breaks and their Top 10 tracks right now...
Dimension - 'Panzer'
"It's easy to hear some of the influences behind Dimension's sound but nevertheless this is a very good modern DnB dance floor banger that has been going down well in the clubs."
Drumsound & Bassline Smith - 'The Truth'
"A large slab of big funky bassline action from the guys - a simple but effective groove that works really well."
DC Breaks - 'Breathe' (Adam F Remix)
"Adam was one of the inspiring producers that got us both into DnB in the 90s so to have him remix our latest single was really big for us - he certainly didn't disappoint putting a wicked old skool spin on 'Breathe'."
Calibre & High Contrast - 'Mr Majestic'
"One from the DnB vaults - an absolute classic tune this. Calibre's produced an awful lot of tunes over the years but this is by far my favourite. Again one of the big early influencers for us back in the day and still going strong!"
Break & Xtrah - 'Regulate'
"A proper stepper with an awesome groove (as always from Break!) matched with some sick synth production. Lots of lovely production and edits and sits in the mix perfectly too."
Culture Shock - 'Steam Machine'
"Culture Shock releases don’t come along that frequently, but when they do you can be sure they will be something special and this latest instalment is no different. Brilliant production skills and his trademark sound have been woven into a funky stomper for the dance floor with a ton of nice touches and cool ‘Rammy’ sounds. Straight in the bag."
DRS Ft. LSB & Tyler Daley - 'The View'
"Drum and Bass and ‘songs’ don’t always sit that well together but this is a triumph. Blending the soulful lyrics of Tyler Daley with DRS’ signature voice over crisp rolling breaks this is a slice of DnB gold. Best DnB track of 2015?"
Noisia & The Upbeats - 'Dead Limit'
"Masters of dark Drum and Bass, Noisia raised the bar again this when they collaborated with our buddies The Upbeats on this super sick dance-floor smasher. It’s the tune I heard out in clubs the most in the second half of this year. The mix down is ridiculous, the drop is simple and yet ultra powerful. I remember dropping it at Boomtown for the first time this year and people literally lost their sh*t!"
LTJ Bukem - 'Music'
"I was about 10 when this first came out. I remember I first heard it when my sister’s friend brought a tape round to our house. I’d never heard anything like it. I nicked the tape and spent the next few months listening to the whole Logical Progression album on repeat. I could have picked any one of the many great tunes on it but for some reason the haunting yet uplifting vibe on this always gets me. Great music can transport you to a place instantly and this track always does that!"
Aim Ft. QNC - 'The Force'
"I first discovered Aim through another track on Tony Hawk’s Proskater on the Playstation back in the day. The whole album Cold Water Music is phenomenal and this track is super smooth, perfect chilling hip hop that you just melt away listening to. I defy you to listen to it and not nod your head! Why doesn’t anyone make tunes like this anymore?!"
'Breathe' is out now.
