In recent years there's been an exchange of ideas between the sibling styles of techno and D&B. This week we've spotlighted 14 tracks by artists (many of them former D&B producers and rehabilitated junglists) who've applied mid-late '90s D&B/Jungle structures, dynamics and production touches to the 125-135 bpm bracket with much success. Working under various pseudonyms, we find the likes of Velvit (dBridge) forging the hard-stepping techno of 'The Act' and Trevino (Marcus Intalex) joining the dots between Reese, Berghain and darker D&B rollige on 'Doldrums'. There's a noticeable seam of Bristol producers transposing the momentum and vibe of D&B and Jungle into house and techno tempo, too, just listen to Pev's mighty roller, 'Aztec Chant' or the moody Metalheadz vibes of Hodge's 'Resolve' for proof. And there's those relative outsiders such as Italian techno producer Alan Backdrop, whose minimal, roiling 'Honok' picks up from where D&B-fiends, Monolake and T++ left off, or the stepping dub B-line and Source Direct-like atmosphere of Lee Gamble's remix for former D&B type, Cosmin TRG, and South London Ordnance's clinical, streamlined rollige on 'Floating World'. In some respects it's a continuation of the Autonomic aesthetic; in others it's symptomatic of new producers attempting to toy with and loosen the strictures of house and techno. Either way, they've got us dancing.
