While AC MC may be a new name to many in the world of DNB, he certainly is not an unfamiliar face in hip-hop. Having toured all over Europe and Asia with his music showcased on MTV and Singapore’s Channel U, AC MC has returned back to his drum & bass roots and is now a resident on Rough Tempo Radio with Jayline. We linked up with AC MC as he’s preparing for his next big show at Bass World in Albourne, about an hour and a half south of London, and got his Top 10 DNB / Jump Up Tracks of All Time.
Warhead – Krust
Simple but devastating bassline roller.

Immense build-up on the intro and nice varying synth melody when it drops.
The One – Mampi Swift
Tidal Wave – Dominator & Turno
A modern day classic, with melodic intro going into a powerful stabbing bass.

This classic still makes people go mad in the rave with its catchy vocal,big bass and rolling beats.

The deceptively mellow intro turns into all out mayhem when the bass line drops!
