It feels like a super rare occurrence when Tech Itch drops a new studio mix, so when he does, you need to grab it with the swiftness. He’s a perfect example of how impressive the darker style of drum & bass can be. Over the years he’s honed his craft, taking the sweeping, emotional soundscapes he was crafting in the mid-1990s and giving them a more sinister edge – all while keeping the precision breakbeat work in tact. While not at the forefront of the dnb scene these days, he’s never stopped working, and this mix is proof of it. An hour of tunes that are either completed or almost completed and set for release on one of his imprints, this is a macabre journey into the depths of dnb excellence. Soak it up.
