Anthems Drum & Bass

Released 09 February 2015

Anthems is Ministry of Sound’s most successful series, that has so far been a glaring omission, so for this edition we're taking on Drum & Bass

This exclusive compilation draws together, for the first time, the key anthems, producers and artists that helped the music evolve from the streets of Britain’s inner cities into a worldwide scene that, today, still hasn’t stopped moving forward.

We kick off the epic anthology with one of the biggest D&B tracks of all time from Goldie with the iconic "Inner City Life" before we also move into arguably the genres biggest timeless classics; "Circles" by Adam F and Roni Size’s "Brown Paper Bag" all feature before we take things up a notch with the true roots of Drum & Bass with a selection of authentic jungle from the likes of Ray Keith, The Ganja Kru, Origins Unknown, Micky Finn & Aphrodite, DJ SS and of course "Incredible" by M-Beat Feat. General Levy.

The second mix encompasses an eclectic selection of the genre’s street music that resonated its way into the mainstream featuring well known hit anthems such as "Shake Your Body’" from Shy FX, "LK" From DJ Marky and the infectious "Barcelona" from D.Kay & Epsilon, before true rollers including the likes of Dilinja, Pendulum, Ram Trilogy and E-Z Rollers.

Finally it’s time to bring the genre up-to-date with a selection of jaw-dropping modern-day masterpieces that have smashed their way into today’s charts and clubbing culture; this mix includes all of the new generation of talent featuring Chase & Status, High Contrast, Sub Focus, Wilkinson, Sigma and DJ Fresh who have all taken the Drum & Bass sound back into mainstream youth culture.

So get ready to roll the beats, this is Anthems Drum & Bass from Ministry of Sound.
