Patrol The Skies Keeps the Stateside Alive With 'Them Vibes, Vol. 1'

If you know me and my love of drum & bass, you also know that I've always represented for the dnb scene here in the States. It didn't originate here, but I've always felt like the producers, labels, and scenes over here have been dealt a bad hand, at times in the grand scheme of things. The Patrol The Skies camp has been showcasing what's good over here, as have producers like Pish Posh, and it's dope to see that they've come together for a new compilations series, Them Vibes, to properly display what the United States are doing, drum & bass-wise.

At 16-tracks, this release spans the sounds of the scene. Pish Posh steps up for a few choice selections— "Set Apart," with DFly, is a rough, in-your-face banger, while "Every Way" is a bit more uplifting and anthemic. The critically-acclaimed Random Movement brings the soulful liquid vibes on his rework of Noisefloor's "My Heart," and this guy MK2 also has some floor-thumping soul cuts on the release as well. Also featured are Voorheez, Echo Brown ("Tunnel Vision" packs all of the bass), and more. You can check out snippets of the entire release below, dive into Pish Posh's promo mix up above, and cop the entire project via Beatport or Juno.
