UKF proudly presents their 6th yearly compilation, UKF Drum & Bass 2016, boasting 23 essential tracks from household artists such as drum & bass dons Dimension, Fred V&Grafix, Brookes Brothers, Friction, The Prototypes and Spor, as well as rising UK artists like Dawn Wall or 1991 – a selection that showcases this year’s most timeless releases, specially curated by the bass music authority.
The CD features 4 diverse and equally beautiful exclusive tracks from both established and rising artists, including a remix of Jome’s Cinnamon courtesy of liquid d&b duo Hybrid Minds, as well as a VIP edit of Technimatic’s timeless Night Vision, lifted from their debut 2014 album on Shogun Audio.
Representing a different, more energetic side to the genre, upcoming producer Dan Dakota—hailing from Calgary—has provided a gritty yet uplifting original, Glow, which finally sees its official release after getting an impressive amount of DJ support and being included in Fred V & Grafix’s Essential Mix. GLXY completes the series with another soulful anthem, In Space It Never Rains, emphasized by the sophisticated voice of London singer Louisa Bass.
Spearheaded by curator and entrepreneur Luke Hood, UKF has successfully built a steady empire since its creation in 2009, rising from unknown quantity to one of the most prominent names in the industry. Representing the broad diversity of talent that makes the drum & bass scene as strong as ever, this compilation is another key addition to the legendary tastemaker’s collection.
