Earlier this spring I wrote about BUG EYES on the second installment of the “Synthesis” collaboration album that was masterminded by the mighty Digital. This week, the fourth and final installment of the mammoth album that is all collaborations between Digital and a who’s who of current drum and bass music is finally released. It is impossible for me to pick a favorite for this last part of the album, as all the tracks are solid, so I am going to go with “No Sleep” as I am up late writing this one out!
“No Sleep” is a proper jungle rinse out crafted by the minds of Digital, Nomine, and Theory. If you love the combination of classic jungle tear outs mixed with modern production and synths, then do not sleep on this one. It is an amen rinse out with a perfectly dubbed out vocal sample of “Babylon No Sleep Tonight” that leads into a haunting and reverbed out synth and bass line at the second drop that will be killing dance floors for a while to come.
