Tuned In Two



Total Science
presents the follow up the now classic seminal compilation album that encapsulated their vision of d&b way back in 2001. ‘Tuned In’ included the cream of the crop & the bright new stars of that era & now after over 10 years they’ve decided the time is right to do it again, piecing together a selection of their favourite artists including some newcomers. These tracks define the CIA sound, label and their definition of d&b as they feel it now & for years to come.

“Trends and fashions come and go within all the dance music genres but even after all this time there is still an underlying straight up timeless Drum & Bass sound & quality we feel & can’t be ignored which needs to be pushed forward and presented as a collection”

‘Tuned In’
featured the best of old skool new skool & unheard artists & thats the theory behind this album too, Calibre & Spirit even appeared on the first incarnation. ‘Tuned In 2’ features once again the cream of the crop & bright new stars of the future , Are you Tuned In ?

Chimpo – MadmanExtravaganza

Badman selector and all round soundboy killer Chimpo gets back in the studio for this serious promo mix alongside mic-man Fox. Dubs, dubs and more dubs with the odd remix and exclusive cut make you realise why this man takes the dancefloor apart. Good luck in sourcing the beats, its best to sit back and get carried by this audio treat. Shouts to Fox for the mic duties.

District – Haymaker/ 3.5 Grams [CHST013]

Newly released on the mighty Chestplate label, Districts latest cut is a monster 12″. Deep bass and a weighty groove make this debut release a must-get. With the creepy and twisted metal sounds of Haymaker on one side and 3.5 Grams on the flip offering a more sparse and darker vibe this is probably my favourite 12″ of the last few months. Big things to come in future from District I’m sure if this is any kind of a taster. Bag it.
