2015 was an amazing year for American Drum and Bass, there was a slew of releases from all kinds of new and old producers on labels based in the USA and abroad, the vibes were thick, the styles were diverse and most sub-genres of D&B were represented.
Here are the tunes that we played most last year from our fellow American producer friends! Keep up the good work!
Consouls – Dreamer Ft. Daniel Hunter Jones – Patrol The Skies Music
The minute the Consouls submitted this record to us, we had chills because we knew we had something special for the label, this song did extremely well for us and Consouls. It was featured on drumNbass.net where it received over 10k plays, it was also featured on Nocturnal Wonderland (September) and actual EDC videos as well. It also broke the top ten releases on Beatport when it dropped! Be on the lookout for remixes of Dreamer coming this year! This is a must have for any dance floor Dj’s out there!
Pish Posh – Frogman – Abducted Ltd
Pish Posh was on fire in 2015, with release after release in labels like Formation, Schedule One and Abducted ltd. This is one of his heavier tunes but one of our favorite ones he put out this year. We look forward to more releases from Pish Posh this 2016! I see big things for one of America’s best producers. Watch this space as we have him slated for a few singles and collabs on our label this year!
Grum – Straight To Your Heart (Legion & Logam) – Zero Three
This one speaks for itself, we remember receiving this with the usual warnings, “keep it locked”, “No DJ mixes” etc… So we played it live at Webster Hall and it went right the fuck off…a lot of fans asked if our set was recorded so we went in the studio and basically re did the mix in the studio, without thinking about the fact that we had broken the rules! When it was time to give the mix out and as we were putting together the track list we realized this bad boy tune was in there… lucky for us the boys were ok with it but to be safe we left it out of the track list figured lets not get in trouble! We then pretty much played it at every single event we dj’ed at for the rest of the year. When it finally dropped we knew it would make a lot of noise for Legion & Logam and we are glad we were right! This is remix definitely a classic.
Kronology – Untouchable – Technique Recordings
Kronology are our favorite American producers at the moment, these guys have hit the mark with every single release they had in 2015 since they signed to Technique recordings! We just got some dubs of their future releases and all we can say is WOW! Look out for more dancefloor bangers from these boys in 2016!
The Burner Brothers – All Of The Feels – Nemesis Recordings
This is one of our favorite Burner Brothers tunes, we went straight for the festival vibes on this one and it was also our first release on UK label which was a huge stepping stone for us considering long we have been in the game, these kind of accomplishments give us the energy to continue pushing ourselves as Dj’s and producers. Expect a lot more tunes from us in 2016 as we have a lot of big tunes on deck! 2016 is poised to be the busiest year for us release wise in the 17+ years we have been together as a group!
