They say good things come in three's. Looking at the recent drum and bass LP releases I would say 'they' were about right.

Firstly from the always reliable Hospital Records stable (home of High Contrast, Logistics and many more) comes a debut ten years in the making from Danny Byrd. Titled Super Sized its full of his trademark liquid sound. It also contains a number of curve balls in including the electro tinged Weird Science (below) and the old skool jungle vibes of Shock Out

D-Bridge was once a member of the acclaimed but now defunct Bad Company. He has now branched off and has been producing for the past few years, releasing singles on various label including his own Exit Recordings. This week sees the release of his first long player, The Gemini Principal. Deep and dark in sections D-Bridge layers his sounds and adds touches of soul to creating atmospheric drum and bass. The haunting Creatures of Habit (below) is a perfect example of this sound.

Rounding out the releases is the lastest LP from the revered Irish producer Calibre. His latest double disc LP is titled Overflow. It retains all his influences of dub and regge and adds a number of new ones, notably a tougher sound on a number of tracks. Calibre also his own vocals for the first time and the gamble pays off adding a personal touch to his lyrics. Textured, warm drum and bass for the soul. Check the key driven Always Lovin You below.

Even if you dont feel that 178bpm vibe normally I would urge you too check this stuff out. Musically drum and bass is on fire at the moment.
