Well played to BBC 6 Music for getting this Lone remix of Illum Sphere's 'Embryonic' onto their daytime playlist. Very well played indeed. Luscious ambient feel over what was already a great tune. If you missed it, Illum Sphere's new album is now available on Spotify.

Biiiiiiig bass lines and 90s happy hardcore throwback vocals from rising DnB star Dimension. Now there are times in a man's life when he make questionable life decisions. Last weekend, and when faced with Sophie's choice between supporting friends and family at a wedding, and Global Gathering, you can probably guess that I'm now massively regretting missing Dimension et al.
This is some real dinner table drum and bass, as I like to call it. Unobtrusive but punchy bass lines, relaxed soulful vocals, your Mum might even quite like it. And why not. She's got good taste. Chilling with a glass of Pinot, bopping away. Yeah? Oh and the Soundcloud clip cuts out around 3 mins so go buy it.
Check out some sweet visuals from visual artist 5DN for Nocturnal's progressive DnB track 'Falling Down'. Catch Nocturnal on Twitter - @Nocturnal_DNB and 5DN - @nickunlimited. Also in other DnB news, stay tuned for an event preview for Planet V's next night at Cable where we'll be giving away VIP passes to see liquid DnB legends like Total Science, Utah Jazz, and more.
This is a luscious little mix from one of 2012's shining stars, Justin Martin. Apparently something of a journey back to some of his more formative years as well. Some clever switches in and out of tracks and genres, liquid, harder dnb and jungle, a little dabble of Adam F! And finishing on a real trip down memory lane with Seba & Lotek's 'So Long' from almost 20 years ago. Dreamy. Best thing about 2013 so far. Whatever next, children?
As his new release, the 'Never Enough' EP appears on Audioporn, here's my favourite from the last High Maintenance release on Mainframe Recordings. I can't fault it to be honest. There is literally nothing wrong with this record. Go on, argue against that. Try me.
Caught this track for the first time at Global this year when N3gus dropped it and was super annoyed when Shazam couldn't tag it. So cheers to the man N3gus himself for the link on Twitter because now i knows what it is doesn't i! The original track is solid, but sometimes a little DnB mix can bring something different, and vice versa - I think a lot of the time DnB vocals can be a bit empty and a bit of an afterthought, so this works just delightfully.
2 days to go so whet your whistle with this tasty little Spotify mix journeying through house, dubstep and DnB.
I thought to myself - don't post this you've posted too much dnb recently - then i thought - SHUT UP MATE - and did it anyway. Well I am doing it now, technically. Unless you're actually reading this at which point it this, and that, are both in the past. Either way. Let this be in your future.
A friend introduced Alphabet Pony to me a while ago and I instantly fell in love with the tune she played me - Atoms. Easy Target is a welcome step into dnb though and it sounds something along the lines of a boat full of squirrels tumbling over and over each other as they slide gently down a waterfall.
