Simply put, ‘Never Been’ is baaaaaad man business. A lean, stripped back percussive intro leads us to a breakdown where Fox greets us with the sickest of vocal hooks that you’ll be trying to decipher until the end. When the tribal half-time break drops it’s time to bounce as the undulating b-line rolls heavy throughout with Dub Phizix teasing with awesome drum edits and Amen shakedowns. Riddim!
Absolutely essential for anyone who plays D&B. – MistaJam
Cinematic soundscapes and a solid beats combine on ‘Codec’, a more bass-led slab of equally dance floor drum & bass that retains the Dub Phizix air of originality with an experimental break the kicks like a mule. Another winner without doubt from a very exciting splinter cell coming out of the north of the UK right now.
