The Burner Brothers Make It Hot On Their 'Altered States' Promo Mix

While many might only know of my stateside drum & bass love due to my dubplate digest (RIP) days, or my time spent with Dogs On Acid, it's a bit deeper that. I've known cats like DJ WAlly (b.k.a. Pish Posh) and DJ Seen since the late '90s, mobbing in AOL chatrooms. While I was younger and not hitting the NYC dnb scene, I'd hear about them doing their thing at Konkrete Jungle and Direct Drive, and was on board when they got the keys to Rawkus' Rawkuts drum & bass sister imprint.

As the years have gone on, Seen and CT have taken The Burner Brothers mantle to new heights, with the last year or so garnering releases on established UK imprints like Formation and Technique (as well as curating their own label, Patrol The Skies). It's about time; it took a bit for non-UK acts to get the stamps of approval, and now we have drum & bass legend L Double ramping up the release of Altered States, a forthcoming compilation featuring nothing but drum & bass souljahs born right in the U.S. of A. Featuring the aforementioned Pish Posh, The Burner Brothers, Space Journey, Liminal & Bengal, and more, this release finds L Double doing what he does best: using Flex as a way to, as he says it, showcase "musical talent from around the world to the world."

To get folks ready for the release, the Brothers stepped up for a massive, 53+ minute promo mix. There's no tracklist, but we imagine a number of cuts from Altered States made it. If you like what you hear, be sure to cop Altered States (which includes an exclusive mix from AK1200) when it drops on November 18.
