Product Description


As one of the early supporters of drum & bass in America, Brit ex-pat DJ-producer DB has long promoted stateside D&B. His newest mix CD, The Higher Education Drum 'N' Bass Session, continues this tradition with tracks from up and coming U.S. producers standing shoulder to shoulder with established U.K. artists. Opening with Kazimir's "Memories," a dreamy sci-fi tale featuring Carol C, DB carves a moody pathway with rough, abstract breaks from L.A.'s Pieter K, noisy anarchy from San Francisco's Phunckateck crew, and remixes of U.S. tracks from Konflict, Rob Playford, and Dom & Roland. Though DB's mixing is sometimes inconsistent, his track selection is a refreshing change of pace from the usual drone and bass that populates many dance floors. --Tricia Romano

4.0 out of 5 stars This ain't no Shades of Technology Jan. 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've long been a fan of DB's "Shades of Technology." In fact I even bought a copy to replace my burned copy. I decided to check out this one as well, and well, I have mixed feelings. There are some really cool tracks, like the first one, but it seems like this cd slips into a "deiselboyesque" style for the majority. Maybe DB is trying to win back the "hardcore d'n'b fans" with this album, which is chock full of super hype d'n'b (which isn't quite my fav) that's kind of repetitive. This is QUITE a departure from the "ambient jungle" and even the harder tracks that I loved in Shades of Technology. To be honest I'm really starting to like these more hype tracks. They're definetely growing on me... which is why I increased the rating. Just don't expect shades of tech. when you buy this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars good cd; with many solid grooves Oct. 21 2001
Format:Audio CD
if you're like me, than you don't like too much vocalization when a dj is laying down a good beat. there's a few tracks on this cd (1, 16, and 18) that i have to skip, but the rest is pretty awesome maximalist d'n'b. if there was no chick singing on 3 of the tracks, i would have given this a five-star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars listening to it now for first time... March 29 2001
Format:Audio CD
DJ DB is my personal drum 'n' bass savior. I enjoy his mixes more than any other d'n'b I have encountered, and I own From Here to There, Logical Progression, System Upgrade, Aphrodite and others, not to mention my mp3 collection. His sound is a great balance between the aggresivity of Dieselboy and the melodic nature of, maybe, LTJ Bukem. Listening to this new album right now, I simply don't see the problem regarding his mixing skills, they seem top rate, although it is readily apparent that he has a different style than Dieselboy or Dara. But let the man have his steez, he's awesome in his own right

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't sit still to this CD! Aug. 30 2000
Format:Audio CD
As a longtime fan of drum and bass, I usually find mix CD's to be disappointing and a waste of money. However, they seem to be getting better, especially with DJ Dara's "From Here to There" , Dieselboy's "System Upgrade", and now, DJ DB's "Higher Education...." Quite simply, it is impossible to stand still and listen to this CD. It just plain inspires one to break it down and shake one's a**. The CD starts out mellow with Kazimir's "Memories", but then kicks in a faster bass line on the second track "Pendulum". From then on, DB journeys through very fast rolling bass, breakbeats, and some very nice tech-step beats towards the end of the CD, such as with "The Message" and "116.7". The CD ends on the mellow note it started with, including a remix of "Memories", giving the listener a chance to settle down after the previous few tracks. For new fans of drum and bass, this CD will give you a nice sample of several different styles in the genre, allowing you to choose which ones you like the most. For longtime fans of the genre, it is a fantastic addition to your collection.
