What a beautiful day it is to receive a full-length album from drum and bass legends Matrix & Futurebound. Believe it or not, this is the first full-length offering from the duo since 2007’s Universal Truth, and it lives up to the hype. Mystery Machine features 17 tracks from the duo, exploring the vast spectrum of drum and bass in its purest form.
The leading single, “Believe,” is a worthy opener to the record — it’s a little too easy to shake off whatever negative energy’s on your soul when you listen to this upbeat tune. The energy is alive throughout the record, with high peaks including “Spellbound” and their remix of V. Bozeman’s “Happy Alone.” It’s pretty incredible these guys are capable of making modern drum and bass sound just as nostalgic as it did when we first discovered it.
