When artists with the pedigree of Drumsound & Bassline Smith drop an album, it's big news. With roots stretching back to the absolute foundations of rave music, this production team has legendary status. And this album proves why. With the first assured, slick bass tones and the eponymous vocal in the intro of Come With Me, we're delivered straight into the big room sound that has set parties alight across the world. As the tune builds and drops, though, it becomes something different. As soul, filth, and production flourishes combine, we're being shown the blueprint for the rest of the album. You see, there are hints at a junglist past in tunes like Warrier, Ouija, and the Brinsley Forde-lace Beautiful Danger, but combined with the huge sound that the DBS studio is capable of creating. And then there are the nods to Drumsound & Bassline Smith's history in the reconfigured versions of Odyssey and Outlaw Renegade. These tunes, originally released a decade apart, both share the distinction of crossing sub-genre boundaries, and are as likely to be heard in a jump-up party as on a festival main stage. The inclusion of them here provides a marker of just how representative of the whole DnB scene these producers really are. But, of course, this overview barely scratches the surface. There's the cinematic majesty of the collaboration with Prolix, Welcome to the Machine. There's the gangsta funk of Roadblock, and the skank-out call-and-response of Technique Badboy. There's the skippy syncopation of Control. So, this, their third LP, is like a gallery exhibit of the many facets of Drumsound & Bassline Smith. Their past, their present, and maybe their future, is laid out in intricate detail and with the sheen of sheer production class which marks them out from the crowd. Every tune on this album tells a chapter of their story while simultaneously being a straight-up banger. There aren't many producers who could pull that off, but this is Drumsound & Bassline Smith were talking about here. So, of course they can.
