Smoke Notes

This legendary compilation first appeared way back in 1996, the year Drum & Bass became exposed to an international market and ceased being strictly a London thing. Ram records had been there since the start, formed by DJ's Andy C, Ant Miles and Shimon as an outlet for their production, the label had then grown to become one of the scenes leading players, and Andy C is now easily the biggest DJ in Drum & Bass. 'The Speed Of Sound' still sounds great today, classics "Valley Of The Shadows", "Truly One" and "Deeper Levels" are some of the finest moments in the genre, tracks that signified a change in the attitude of worldwide clubbers, and music that bares the influence of techno, Playstation and cheap drugs - dance music to get lost in. Elsewhere the warped "Lunar Bass" and rolling "Cause N' Effect" standout, tracks that are easily better than most Drum & Bass from this era - forget the under produced "jump-up" of many producers of the day, this is accomplished Electronica, managing to be both thought provoking and funky - music for the mind and feet. A far better example of the scene in 1996 than most compilations from the time, 'The Speed Of Sound' is essential for those with an interest in Drum & Bass, especially for newcomers researching the genre, its also a damn good listen that will demand any fan's attention.
