Ministry Of Sound's Anthems: Drum & Bass

Drum & Bass is the latest Ministry of Sound release in their most popular series to date – Anthems.


While there is a bassbin full of D n B compilations already flooding the market, this isn’t a bad place to start for a newcomer wanting to learn more about the genre or a fan of drum & bass wanting a 3 CD mix covering genre defining classic cuts, an eclectic spread of more mainstream tunes, and a selection of contemporary artists currently breathing new life and scope into the genre.


This anthology includes classics such as the Jungle-tastic ‘Inner CityGoldie, ‘Super Sharp Shooter’ by The Ganja Kru, ‘Valley Of The Shadows’ by Origins Unknown, ‘Bad Ass’ by Micky Finn & Aphrodite, alongside the best of the 1990s Jazz n Bass Circles’ from Adam F, ‘Pulp Fiction’ by Alex Reece and the ground-breaking ‘Brown Paper Bag’ by Roni Size & Reprazent.


This crowd pleasing album doesn’t stop there, disc two presents us with eclectic selection of the genre’s street music that resonated its way into the mainstream; igniting us all with memories of hit anthems such as ‘Shake Your Body’ from Shy FX, ‘LK’ Marky and the infectious ‘Barcelona’ from D.Kay & Epsilon, before we move into rollers including the likes of Dilinja, Pendulum, Ram Trilogy and E-Z Rollers.


Evidence that Drum & Bass has gone full circle is prevalent on disc 3; a new generation of talent has emerged with tracks from artists like Chase & Status, Sub Focus, Wilkinson and DJ Fresh who have taken the Drum & Bass sound back to the mainstream.  These artists are a force not to be reckoned with, not only do they dominate the UK chart each week, take over our radio waves and headline the biggest music festivals around the world, they also have a strong presence in Ibiza, an island that is dominated by House and Techno music – Drum & Bass is back and it’s bigger than ever!
