Bristol continues to reign supreme in the never-ending supply of heavyweight beats that seem to bubble up from this small corner of the UK. Take the latest output from the up-and-coming Phaction, who dives deep in his four-track exploration of all that drum and bass has to offer.

Hitting somewhere between the heart and the mind, the aptly titled Hard Truth EP due to surface on Metalheadz takes the very best that the genre has to offer and twists it up in a tension-filled churn of dark and light. Perfect for the dark and heady winter vibes outside, Phaction’s “Without You” serves as the perfect soundtrack for the dancefloor and liquid-loving head-nodders alike.
