Stanley Stevenson Byrne, aka Stan SB, is a teenage UK bassman that I hadn’t heard of until this morning when I stumbled upon this track, “Hunger.” In the track he keeps a balance of slow, emotive strings and swift, detailed drums reminiscent of Aphex Twin‘s “Flim.” Whether you’re just waking up or going to sleep, this tune should fit into a playlist for any time of day. Have a listen after the jump.
Drum and Bass
I realized it had been a while since I went on a hunt for some new liquid drum and bass, so I decided to do some digging and this is what I came up with. The UK native, Feint, produces awesome tracks that are fit for those who are keen on melodies, and this tune, “Laurence,” is a great example of that. He uses strings, piano, and more to keep things emotional and uplifting. Go on after the jump to hear what it’s all about.
There’s nothing quite like some beautiful liquid drum and bass to put your soul at ease. Hybrid Minds have produced a great, thought-provoking tune that is perfect for this day of rest. What makes it even better is that they are providing us with it for free on their Facebook. Prepare for a few minutes of bliss and listen to the tune after the jump.

AKS (Addicted Kru Sound) is a six headed live dubstep/drum & bass band hailing from Belgium. My first exposure to AKS came nearly two years ago, when Laidback Luke seemingly rewired the collective brain of Los Angeles by dropping their Steed Lord remix on the typically Progressive House leaning Main Stage inside the Coliseum at Electric Daisy Carnival 2010.
Keep an eye out for AKS and their special take on bass music and unique live show as they continue to move forward! Read on after the jump to find out more about the group and their upcoming EP, out May 21st.
