Bad Company UK Premieres First Official Return Single, "Nomad"

Back in February, Fresh, dBridge, Maldini and Vegas reunited as Bad Company UK, a foursome that took the drum & bass world by storm with their bangers like "The Nine," "4 Days," "Planet Dust," and many more. They announced that reunion with "Equilibrium," a freebie that took heads back to the source. It was announced in late September that the newly realigned BCUK had signed to Ram Records, and with that came a remix of The Prodigy that left a bad taste (no pun intended) in the mouths of long time BCUK fans.

Then, MistaJam announced that he'd be premiering their first full solo track since signing to Ram, "Nomad," on his show last night. The verdict? It's cool. It's definitely very "Ram," in the sense that it's got that punch and bounce that Andy C loves for his sets. It has a guitar riff that I'm personally not vibing with, and one of those earworm melodies that gets my goat. The breakdown in the middle? That's where it's at for me.

Ultimately, "Nomad" will get the rinse. It's got an epic feel to it, and I can imagine dnb DJs now through NYE will be playing this at the beginning of their sets (or somewhere in the middle, for the feels), and will probably do well. It seems like heads on forums like DOA are split; I'm wondering if there's a VIP that emphasizes less on the guitar and more on the gnarled bass that will do me in.

Stream "Nomad" down below, and if you're digging, it's out on November 18 via Ram, so save up.
