It’s that time of year again: we’ve looked back over 2017 and handpicked our favourite musical moments in drum & bass and dubstep and put them together into two massive albums.
Both loaded with exclusives and dynamically selected and mixed to represent the widest possible view of both genres, both albums tell a very specific tale.
UKF Dubstep 2017: Bringing back that classic melting pot bounce; there’s a particularly classic feel to this one. The genre has gone back to its roots to galvanise a new range of sounds, ideas, influences and styles, a refreshed energy and a new generation of young innovative talents all finding their own signature and sound… Something that’s sound that’s tangible with every single one of the 22 tracks on the album from Killsonik’s first original production in four years via exclusives from the likes of Axel Boy, Mark The Beast, Siskiyou and the mighty Gentlemens Club.
UKF Drum & Bass 2017: An all-out celebration of the groundswell of collaboration, cross-pollination, and boundary breaking that’s been a key theme to the year in D&B, this album is a dedication to the genre’s current state of health. For the first time in a long time the walls between the genre’s famous extensive list of subgenres have crumbled and artists have been felt free to fuse, experiment and mix-up any style they see fit. And this album is all about that fusion with exclusives from the likes of Memtrix, Hillsdom, Hybrid Minds and Flight.
2017 has been another vintage in both bass directions and these albums really capture the sound and spirit we’ve been feeling at clubs, festivals and our playlists this year. Out today, they’re available on all streaming sites and our own store where you’ll also find out brand new threads.
Launched last week for Black Friday, our entire clothing range has had a full remix in two series: the limited edition Vintage streetwear range and our Remastered collection of timeless classics. All completely refreshed, redesigned and remixed, the new ranges comprise of nine pieces altogether, are made with high end fabrics and new embroidery techniques. The t-shirts come with a tapered bottom while the hoodies and sweater have a velvety feeling inline, creating the cosiest threads we’ve created to date. We’re so pleased with these new selections, we’re giving 30 days money back guaranteed on all new items.
