Feel Good Music.

If you have ever been a fan of the sunnier side of drum & bass then you'll no doubt recognise the name Young Ax. Germany's funkiest export has been turning out feel good music that's packed with fresh feeling and inimitable musicality for over a decade.

Working alongside Santorin, the label he's released the majority of his music on, Young Ax launched his own imprint as an outlet for his personal favourite tracks. And for Sugaphonic's third release Young Ax has enlisted the help of one of the D&B scene's most loved veterans, Calibre.

Taking Young Ax's 2005 classic 'Midnight Sun' and wrapping it in his own production style, Calibre has created something that every D&B fan will want in their collection. Rolling breakbeats and effortless musicality are blended up with an infectious bassline and all those classic Calibre trademarks that we love so much.

Backing that up Young Ax offers 'Rave Zeit' - a cunning concoction of enveloping synths and old skool jungle breaks that oozes with fresh ideas. As the musical pressure builds and pulls you in, it's not long before Young Ax unleashes the tension and the drop washes over you with perfect bassline pressure.

Finally Young Ax offers up a Funkmischung of 'Midnight Sun' with refreshing downtempo results. If Alex Zwingenberger had been born a decade or two earlier this could have been the backing track to a Stevie Wonder classic. An incredible addition to an already stunning package.

Mixmag: Sweeping those winter chills away once and for all in a sunburst of forthright snares, booming jazzy bass-tones and ultra-sultry guitar licks, it's that man Calibre and his trademark brand of celestial liquid funk. Frankly it's refreshing to hear a distinctly anti-minimal break arrangement: an unashamed fluttering of hummingbird snares that flood the soundscape, powering and defining the summery mood of the track. All those who remember German funkster Young Ax's sublime 'Listen Up' on Critical some years back will delight at the sight of Calibre climbing aboard. Check the flip for Young Ax's genius take on feel-good ravey melodic jungle too – 'Rave Zeit'. Magic. 8/10
