If you want to bank the future of the drum & bass scene on the shoulders of a few, you want to consider Villem as one of those pillars. He's been heralded by Dub Phizix as one of the best new talents in drum & bass, a fact that's been solidified with releases on Hospital's Med School imprint, Symmetry, Ingredients, and Utopia Music, which is run by Villem's partner in Mute, Mako. Villem's 2012 was slick, and his 2013 is looking much brighter. He breathes life into the deeper side of drum & bass while maintaining a knack for neck snapping beats.

For his addition to our Five Tracks series, Villem gave us a clear picture of his influences, with everyone from Aphex Twin to 4Hero making an appearance. We love when you can truly see how each of these tunes has played a part in an artist's growth. Here are Villem's Five Tracks.
