You will find the good ol Amen break and the normal liquid with vocals like silk.A great highlight to releases like this is the chance for discovery. Out of all the artist in the world of DnB these are the ones that have stuck to their dream and worked every day to get past the stage of finding a label, which is no easy feat. Not just any label either, but it is MED SCHOOL!Many of these tracks are on the chill side creating a relaxing atmosphere of guitars, voice, drums and sub bass. Such as Magnetism, Weather Change, Peace, and Far Away. In these and others you are invited to sit back relax, close your eyes and enter the world of audio in a way you may have not done before.Hard tracks are present as well such as Waterbombs and Hardware. Here you will find resampled, distorted, angry growling basses that speak in a rhythmic way. Techstep, neruofunk, and more are of course in the barrage of sound! Through the Night, Magic Flute, and Everything are all great examples. Take a step into the future, or past (its your choice) as you hear the sounds of minimalist machinery and technological advance.Congrats to the artists and their creations!
