27/01/2021: “No Destiny” by Break

Released in 2005 on Commercial Suicide records, this stomping Neurofunk track begins with a eerie, atmospheric arrangement of samples to raise the tension, with flowing drum pattern on top.

When the bassline kicks in at around 1 and a half minutes, it takes you by surprise with its understated ferocity.

A further minute in, the song surprises you again with a light touch of melodic samples and tribal drums. Even the bass pattern switches up in celebration.

As with many great Drum & Bass songs, this track is about build up and release, atmosphere and energy. It might not be Mozart, but it’s a belter!
