Drum n bass veteran gives it up for the new era.
Following on from dBridge and Kid Drama reviving their Autonomic sound and Goldie giving Om Unit space on the Metalheadz label, another drum n bass veteran has been seeking inspiration in the new generation of producers.
Doc Scott, founder of 31 Recordings and the man behind legendary tracks like ‘Shadow Boxing’ and ‘Here Comes The Drumz’, started using the Future Beats name for a series of mixes a few years back. The mixes focused on showcasing new talent in the world of drum n bass, and this has now been taken to its logical conclusion with a compilation on the 31 Recordings label.
Future Beats: The Album includes 24 new tracks from producers both within and on the edges of the scene. Alongside established names such as Calibre, Digital, Marcus Intalex, Loxy and Klute, known for their own innovations for the past decade and more, the compilation highlights newcomers and fringe innovators such as Thing, The House of Black Lanterns, Moresounds, Ital Tek, Sinistarr, Skeptical and J:Kenzo.
The release comes as a vinyl boxset, limited to 200 copies and pressed on 6 x 12″ vinyl. The vinyl includes digital copies, and will never be repressed.
You can stream snippets of the entire compilation below as well as check the tracklist. Vinyl pre-orders are up on 31 Records’ shop.
