This summer the world is dancing to a rampant red blooded rhythm… From Rio to Rome, our soundtrack is fuelled by hip-snaking sambas, the rump-shaking rhumbas and body-blasting bossas. Rhythms that instantly grab you and hurl you into a carnivalian frenzy, there’s no better celebration of this sound than Beta Recordings’ ‘Carnival Drum & Bass’.

Latin music and bright, sprightly drum & bass fit each other like two partners in a steamy salsa dance. Just as it has in football, Brazil has become one of the D&B game’s largest creative exporters outside of the UK. Like all fiery relationships, this hot Latin influence has gone both ways with some of the genre’s leading UK exponents exploring the Latin quarters’ roots with the same mi gusta gusto.

Senor Juan B is one of the first pioneering UK exponents to nail these explorations. The playful patrão at Chihuahua Recordings, Juan is the alter-ago of Beta bossman John B. A chance for the agenda-setting artist don his Copacabana budgie smugglers and flex his funkiest of muscles, Juan has been dealing strictly in carnal carnival sonics for over 15 years…

Shimmering guitars, punctuated pianos, dramatic horns, enormous rhythms that capture you physically and mentally, his mischievous remit of red hot emotion and sun-kissed soul has now been fully remastered and updated, featuring cuts from fellow artists Grag Packer, Blu Mar Ten and Nu:Tone PLUS two brand new tracks exclusive to this album.

‘Take Me To La Cinta’ was written by John during a darker period in his usually colourful life. Recovering from an operation, he missed his annual pilgrimage to his spiritual home, Sardinia’s legendary Sun & Bass festival. Flipping the negative for something truly positive, his convalescing session has led to a timeless roller that slaps with double-bass badness and shakes with piano-primed sentiment.

The other brand new track, ‘A Man Is Just A Man’, sees John teaming up with one of dance music’s most distinctive vocalists… Darrison. His golden harmonies coating the lolloping piano samba like a snug bikini, what begins as a touching, soulful serenade quickly switches to a classic D&B jam with one of the cheekiest basslines you’ll find all year. A reminder of the genre’s original melting-pot mentality; you will not find a better example of how solid, trusting and ultimately complementary Latin music and drum & bass are.

Where the slinkiest of writhes and the most infectious of percussive dynamics meet with true fire, each of these 22 sizzling swing-joints is capable of raising a sultry smile and razing a hot dancefloor at 20 sultry paces. 2014′s world-unifying Carnival has only just begun… And this is your soundtrack!

Having secured Album of the Month from Mixmag and Album of the Week from The Independent for his recent long player ‘Light Speed’ John B’s musical prowess continues to grow far beyond his drum & bass roots. With an outlook that’s embracing of fresh influences while always bearing the hallmarks of a very unique sound, John B is still one of the most exciting artists to arise from the D&B revolution of the ‘90s and continues to push the boundaries with every release.

On this, his latest single, John B delivers a stunning take on the ‘Trance & Bass’ sound that he made so popular. Teaming up with Kirsty Hawkshaw who lends her bright and breezy vocals to John’s sublime backing track, this is simply great electronic music that fans of great melodies and beautiful songs will love. Clocking in at 174bpm, most D&B is beyond the comprehension of many listeners, but ‘Connected’ stands up as both a driving piece of fast breakbeat trance music and a warming reminder that musical genres are for trainspotters, not for music fans.

Next up McMash Clan take a break from releasing on Flux Pavilion & Doctor P’s Circus Records to rework ‘Connected’ with some all-important dance floor filth. If you’re someone who prefers their bass music served with a wall of sub-bass weight and some face-pounding, unrelenting beats then this whacking great chunk of drumstep-to-D&B will surely satiate your every desire. Matching the beauty of John B’s original with the beast of McMash Clan’s sonic assaults, this is the perfect way to assure shear dance floor devastation whenever you drop it.

With this release John B once again shows us exactly why he’s regarded as a legend in the dance music world. His glittering career filled with triumphs and overflowing with fresh ideas just got even more impressive.
