Don't you just love it when two dope things link up and make even more dope shit? That's kind of what happened with Calyx and TeeBee. As solo artists, they were merking the drum & bass scene with their own singular ideas, roaming in the same circles but providing their own unique twists to the growing scene. Their friendship turned into a production partnership, and in 2004 they started unleashing their fire material to the masses, to critical acclaim. We imagine many of you remember the dust that was kicked up over their All Or Nothing album on Ram in 2012, which was one of the top LPs of that year. On July 21, Fabric released Calyx & TeeBee's FabricLive contribution, a 34-track trek through the drum & bass scene. Of course they threw in a number of their own originals and remixes, but you get a great idea about what's made them tick. For this week's Five Tracks, they put together a special selection of tunes for us:
As a theme, we've gone with five influential and historic dnb tracks that captured our imaginations whilst inspiring our own musical direction. Three of these tracks can be heard on our FabricLive76 mix.
