Label: Allowance Records
These six tracks were released on Allowance Records as part of a compilation called “DRUM ‘N’ BASS IN YOUR FACE VOL 1”. As the name of the compilation suggests, there’s plenty of big hitting Drum & Bass tracks in the compilation and six of mine were kindly released additionally to the other EPs I released on the label.

I did a spot of travelling in 2015 (would do it again for sure) and one of the last places I visited in Canada was Meadows in the Sky Parkway. At this point in my adventure, I had been travelling through USA & Canada for nearly 50 days and I was getting that feeling of “I’m going to miss this” (as I’m sure everyone does when they are coming to the end of a holiday)! If you have worked out how the name of the song came about, give yourself a pat on the back! I rather cleverly just swapped some words around from “Meadows in the Sky Parkway” and made a new word up in the process (Skyway?!) to end up with the track name – Skyway Meadows. Deep liquid vibes on this one.
Exit Point – The DJ (Nicky Havey remix)
I decided to push the boat out a little bit with this one as it’s a little bit rawer compared to my usual stuff. A big sub bassline with raw drum beat patterns and sampling from the original track is not for the faint hearted!
I really was annoyed with the way I was treated in a previous job I had and this rather “angry” (but catchy I’ve been told) track came as a result. I’ll also write about this one in a blog as there’s a lot more to it than “just another track” as is always the case with me 😉
A very deep liquid track from me as I reflect on the journey of discovery I made when travelling back in 2015.
This is one of the most “trance” heavy drum and bass tracks I’ve made, which reflects the mood I was in when I wrote it. Very uncertain about what the future had for me (as we all are) at the time of writing it but sit back and enjoy listening in to this one as I transport you to a world of Trance & Bass!
The future will of course always be a mystery and it really should be enjoyed. Mystery represents a final willingness to look forward to the future as the vibe returns to a more upbeat one.
