An eagerly anticipated debut album, Inside the Machine, released in the winter of the same year, continued with that theme, though it also demonstrated an ambition which was to later set them far apart from their contemporaries; the fusion of strings with growling bass rises which defined "Colonies" was an enjoyable demonstration of how the dancefloor could be made more interesting.
With their debut selling in excess of 30, copies practically unheard of within the movement , the crew made a slight, yet still surprising, change of direction — with their music sounding less like their Virus contemporaries than the soundtrack to some late-night, futuristic drama. Having altered their name to BCCB a two-planed mirror image of BC in after unwanted attention from the hard rock act of the same name, the quartet unleashed their second album, Digital Nation.
Though the two-step percussive and razor-wire basslines were still very much in evidence, the sound was dominated by a bastardized techno-synth dynamic. From the opening title track to the closing whispers of "Navajo," John Carpenter-esque synth lines presided over a landscape of jittery beats and speed-freak melodics. As the drum'n'bass dancefloor languished throughout , the ever-ambitious BC released an album Book of the Bad mixing roughneck accessibility with more tangible elements.

J Duarte has little knowledge of what he is talking about. At the time when this was originally released [minus the remixed tracks] just about every song on here was just beaten to death by DJS far and wide. Nitrous, Silicon Dawn, Oxygen, to say anything less than these tunes were produced with the utmost quality and skill would be a flat out fallacy.
This could be locked in a time capsule to show how DNB thrived in the early 's. This LP had more punch, tightest programming and the best flow of any other LP from the guys before they split. It is more than worth it. See all reviews. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.

Annotation Bad Company is releasing their new material under the name Bad Company UK probably due to avoid mix up with the rock group Bad Company , so please do not merge these two artists, even though they had the same name on older releases.
Auf die Spitze treibt es der Track "Nitrous". Mehr Hardcore geht nicht. Zum Schluss gibt es noch einen finsteren, paranoiden Downbeattrack der nett gruseligen Art. Translate review to English. Diese CD hat mir damals wirklich in den Drum and Bass eintauchen lassen. Ich habe mich immer wieder verloren zwischen den schnellen Rhythmen kombiniert mit Psychedelischen, Hypnotisierenden Sounds und Melodien.
Ich liebe dieses Album und spiele heute noch Tracks davon wenn ich mal auflege - leider gibts die nur mehr sehr sehr selten am Markt :. Wer auf soliden Dn'B steht, kommt voll auf seine Kosten! Das hier geht aber eher in die Richtung gediegener Durchschnitts Dn'B mit sehr spartanischen finsteren Untermalungen hier und da.
