Christmas has finally come…..
When I heard Doc Scott was putting together a full album called “Future Beats” with 24 tracks from some of the most interesting movers in the scene, it immediately raised the hairs on the back of my neck with excitement. Then hearing the previews on the 31 Recordings Soundcloud account only confirmed this. With a release date of 15th December I immediately pre-ordered the vinyl box set. I rarely order vinyl these days and having anything sent to Spain always carries a risk of it disappearing into a black hole, taking a year to arrive or arriving folded into 4 parts…. and when it finally landed on my door step, all my Christmas’ came at once….
With a limited run of 200 copies and a promise “never to be repressed”, having the vinyl box set feels like I’m holding a piece of history in my hands.
The contributions from each artist on this album present a new realm of progression in the DnB sound, as well as the quality & variety found with in the broad spectrum of “Drum & Bass”.
Each track is unique, expressive and true the vibe & spirit of Drum & Bass, past, present and future.
Doc Scott’s vision with this album has given the world proof that the Drum & Bass scene is very much alive, and in my opinion, currently the most diversely expressive & creative genre of music in the electronic world of sound.
I stand by this strongly;
Future Beats is the most significant release of the year, if not the decade!
