The obvious highlight here is all the tracks from Om Unit's label Cosmic Bridge - Spirit On, Angry Buzz, Tibetan Metastate, Free Flight, Fuzzd An Soup, Make Believe, Ryoan-Ji, and Ting N Tings. The mixture of 80 BPM dubstep, drum & bass, and footwork promoted by Cosmic Bridge is really exciting to me - a fresh take on a lot of sounds I love.
The two new drum & bass tunes at the end are also worth noting. Coco Bryce's 多幸感 (Euphoria?) is beautifully programmed. Reminds me of Photek's Ni-Ten-Ichi-Ryu. And Sully's Flock EP is breathtaking, the best new drum & bass I've heard in years. (Well, new-to-me, anyway. The release itself is three years old.)
This show was thrown together in a few hours while exhausted. Given that, it turned out better than I expected. The tracks are good; I hope I didn't spoil them with my inelegant mashing.
