2018 is almost upon us, DJ SS is planning one of the biggest releases his label has ever put together in its 27 year history and it starts right here with this incredible roof-raiser from the one and only Drumsound & Bassline Smith. A fittingly powerful track for such a high profile project, trust us – no one is ready for this. You’re not ready. We’re not ready. The World Ain’t Ready…
Drum & bass titans Drumsound & Bassline Smith first appeared on SS’s Formation in 2001 with the still-savage double-A ‘Lazor Razor / Kilo’. Delivered just as their collaborative project was beginning to truly take shape, it caught a scorching moment in time for the artists, the labels and the rampant dark tech rolling sound at the time. It also led to a follow-up release on the label’s 100th release with the equally timeless ‘‘Fallin’’ several years later.
Back to the future with full circle fire: Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s chiselled riff-hyped anthem ‘World Ain’t Ready’ is the perfect launch track for the ‘Formation 200’ album. A monolithic document featuring some of the most exciting innovators in the game old and new, ‘Formation 200’ is a celebration of everything the label has achieved in its near-30 year history. The longest running label in drum & bass, Formation and its various side labels have played a role in early careers of many massively influential acts: DJ Hazard, Commix, Nero, The Prototypes, G Dub, John B, Matrix, Twisted Individual, Distorted Minds, the list goes on and on.
200 releases deep, still firing from all cannons and super-charged with energy and innovation for the next generation, Formation Records is true pillar of the scene and remains so to this day. Full details on the ‘Formation 200’ album will land next week. In the meantime, enjoy this on-point lead early taster from one of most consistent names in the game. We ain’t ready!
