It's official....

Danny Tenaglia has mixed Balance 25.

Tenaglia re-edited most of the tracks—there are 36 of them—that appear on the two-disc mix. "I could've never predicted this but I do feel that techno is most definitely better than ever—that's mainly because the tempo has finally gotten below 130 BPM," he says. "This made techno more soulful, more swingin', more bouncy and made you feel it like you never could've felt it at near 140 BPM."

Tough house and techno cuts feature on both discs. Ø [Phase], Nicole Moudaber and Dadub are on disco one, while Regis, Dax J, 2 AM/FM and Brian Sanhaji feature on disc two. Balance 25 will come out in Australia on September 5th, the UK, Europe and Asia on September 15th and the US on September 16th.

For more insight into Tenaglia's storied career, listen back to his RA Exchange from 2013.

John, I agree with you there's a lot of a lot of negativity... But for the sake of everybody who likes a bit of sport and contributes a few bad apples shouldn't spoil the fun for the rest of us.  The solution would be to simply ban those people.  I was active on the GU board for many years, when that closed I came here and it enjoyed posting here occasionally.  If you close this board then where do we go?  There has to be a solution, but I don't think shutting the board down is the solution...

Didn't Grayarea do an ambient RMX? - or was it another artist?  Any info on that sublime ambient RMX?

Cats rule.  I love their "fuck off, don't bother me" mentality.  Very intuitive animals - everyone should have one...and depending on what kind you get - never a shortage of personality - especially Siamese.

Nothing more than Putin igniting old cold-war rivalries & flipping a big middle finger at the west...a pathetic attempt at regional domination and a clear sign of a failing economy trying to maintain national pride and relevance.

Robert Babicz is a mint choice.

After several listens, I think this mix requires a special mood and setting....some great tunes, but some awkward transitions as well...but I think he intended that way...it's good and a definite grower.  Not his best mix by any stretch, but it's quite different and a lot of the tracks have a complexity about them that's easy to miss on the first few listens.

This is fucking terrific.

If you even remotely like 'The Bukem Style' of d'n'b (old and new) then you should get this.

Great album.

Agreed.  This exceeds my expectations.  Phenomenal work.

Can't wait!

You're listening to it on MP3. So what rotation would that be? Your finger up your arsehole, perhaps?

That your sister's job...she sucks at it though...so we settled for her brown star instead - tight lil puckered rosebud that one....

Agreed.  Saw him at Burning Man a few years ago & it was a fantastic set.  Digging his sound as of late & his Anjunadeep mix has been on frequent rotation.

The set with the pink panther remix in it? Lol. Do me a favour. You must have been necking the sparkle biscuits like Presto at the end of day Greggs sarnie sell off

Erm...what's a sparkle biscuit & Greggs Sarnie sell-off?

Thought his Anjunadeep mix and the album Trails We Blaze were both excellent.  A welcome diversion from the recent monotony.

Saw Howells at Avalon some years ago - spot on, if a bit banging...then Sasha showed up & they tore the place up - that was a good night.

Looking forward to this...Howells has never disappointed me with his mix comps...


Had a re-listen to his Renaissiance Mix collection , which I had completely forgotten about. Still sounds good, nice and deep.

From his pre-stoicism era - got this on as I type - one of my favourites from that time...

Great mix for sure - both volumes are boss.  His Ren mix is ace & I always come back to his 24:7 mix as well as GU Miami...the dude spends time in the trenches to be sure with his track selection & programming....

Never been too keen on the d&b stuff BMT do but there's some chillout mixes on their website which are spectacularly good.

This is also an impeccable tune,too.....

That's a gem for sure.

Blu Mar Ten will release Famous Lost Words on November 18th.

The group have been in the drum & bass game for a long time, starting in 1995 as a duo and then expanding to a three-piece in 2004. Famous Lost Words is the UK trio's fifth album and first since 2011's Love is The Devil, which we said proved "that a dance outfit who've been around for almost twenty years can still make music that stands up to the fiercest wave of newcomers" in our review of the record.

At 13 tracks and 71 minutes, Famous Lost Words is a bit shorter than usual for the band, but a healthy helping nonetheless. The press release describes it as "pure and unapologetic drum & bass," and it will come out on their own Blu Mar Ten Music label. There are a few vocal tracks, with Robert Manos and Agné Genyté appearing on four songs, plus a collaboration with Blu Mar Ten signee Seba.

You can listen to a preview of the first single, "Somewhere" backed with "Half The Sky," here.

Tracklist
01. Somewhere feat. Agné Genyté
02. Hunter feat. Seba
03. Big Shots
04. Famous Lost Words
05. Thin Air feat. Robert Manos & Yosebu
