    While the world is still reeling from Metalheadz boss Goldie’s incredible Fabriclive compilation CD, his world-renowned record label continues to unleash the finest drum & bass from some of the best artists the scene has to offer.

    Every drum & bass fan knows the names of these two producers by now. Mikal’s inclusion on Metalheadz ‘Genesis EP vol. 2 & 3 has cemented his position as one of the hottest producers around. Whilst Break’s production credits stretch around the D&B block and down the street, having worked with the biggest and best in the scene for nearly a decade.

    Here we see these two impeccable producers get together for the latest single on Goldie’s irrepressible imprint. As you’d expect, the standard of production and musicality is impossibly high and there’s no doubt that fans of the label will count this amongst the very best in its catalogue.

    First up, Mikal goes solo with the euphorically tinged ‘Lifts Me Up’. Employing soaring vocals and rising house-inspired stabs, he offers a stunning take on dance floor friendly D&B, that doesn’t feel empty or forced. Instead you’re given an effortless ride into 170bpm+ territory that’s wrapped in an unbelievable groove and topped off with rolling breaks and a bassline that’s sure to worry any bassbin it’s played on. This is how to make dance floor music with soul.

    Backing that up, Mikal teams up with D&B veteran, Break, to drop the incredible ‘Just A Game.’ A chilling intro gradually builds into a classic Headz’ style drop infused with tension and gut-wrenching bass notes. This one is smooth and understated, but no less powerful in a club. As Mikal & Break combine the best elements of both their styles, it will surely leave listeners begging for more collaborations from these two artists in the future.
