Emerging from the shadows after a year in the lab, the legendary Mind Vortex return to center stage with the imminent release of their club-crushing single, “Shall We Begin” (due out January 25). With this first of four tracks on the way via Ram Records over the next few months, Mind Vortex have been stirring up a ruckus behind the scenes as heads like Zane Lowe, Mistajam, Grooverider, Bailey, Crissy Criss, DJ Hype, and the big boss himself, Andy C, have been caning these new cuts with a vengeance.
'Vault' is the biggest kick up the metaphorical backside drum & bass has ever had.
Konflict “Messiah” (Renegade Hardware, 2005)
“Quite possibly the most epic drum & bass tune in existence. Hearing this for the first time was a game changer for us and it still demolishes dancefloors to this day. Absolute classic.”
Pendulum “Vault” (31 Records, 2003)
“The biggest kick up the metaphorical backside drum & bass has ever had. The production, musicality, variation, and downright sickness meant that drum & bass—for us and the world—was never going to be the same again.”
Noisia “Block Control” (Moving Shadow, 2005)
“The first Noisia track that we heard and one that still makes you go ‘HOLY SHIT’ when it drops. It’s an animal of a tune, and a masterclass in bottom end!”
Ed Rush, Optical & Fierce “Alien Girl” (Prototype, 1998)
“I remember hearing this for the first time as a kid thinking, ‘This sounds like a huge motorbike engine revving up.’ What a monstrous LFO bassline! This evil beast still gets a reload now.”
Britney Spears “Oops!…I Did It Again” (Jive, 2000)
