Rise Up 013 comes courtesy of Ivy Lab - the trio of producers known individually as Sabre, Stray and Halogenix signed to the mighty Critical Music imprint.
This mix proves one thing - Drum & Bass is back, ready to stamp its authority on the UK underground again after retreating to the shadows to let the house-music wave roll on by.
We've watched with interest over recent months as the rest of the dance music press have slowly realised that some of the most creative, interesting and progressive electronic music production out there is happening at 170 beats per minute, or increasingly, the half-time tempo of 85bpm.
This mix proves that bold statement true, making for one of the finest mixes we've yet hosted; flaunting the new half-time sonics and rhythms of the genre to rudely demonstrate their increasing interplay with hip-hop and dancehall templates.
We always hype our mixes up, but this time, we really mean it. Click play now, for a glimpse of what's about to come...
