Calibre: a legend returns

Drum and Bass | Wednesday 22nd August 2018 | Annalisa

Calibre is one of the most prolific producers of jazzy drum and bass. When you think of that liquid sound, his name is the first that comes to mind, completely synonymous with that beautifully musical drum and bass we love. A producer wth a next level of insight into what makes a smooth groove, his catalogue of productions has an incomparable high level of quality. He has without doubt, been the master of some of the biggest drum and bass tunes of the last 20 years. His sound moves from drum & bass into dub, techno, house, jazz, soul and more with ease making him a top choice for re-mixes with a talent for bringing a new dynamic to any track, that often outshines the original.

His latest LP, Shelflife, is a collection of unreleased tracks and dubplates with plenty of magic from the producer. "Addict" and "Jaboc" will be familiar to Calibre fans and Bluesday featuring the late, Marcus Intalex holds a special place in the collection since the legend's passing. We'll look forward to hearing many of these at what feels like his spiritual home, Sun and Bass this September.

The release is available for download and to buy as a 7 track vinyl from Signature Recordings here
