Celebrating 20 years in the game, Drum&BassArena, the genres most respected authority, returns this Spring with the 2016 edition of their best-selling album series.



Synonymous with consistent high-quality and meticulous curation, the Drum&BassArena annual is one of the most anticipated releases on the calendar; and the 2016 edition is no different.

Boasting 60 tracks across 3 CD’s with 11 exclusives, Drum&BassArena 2016 serves as a uniting force between all styles of the genre as it explores and celebrates talent from every corner.

Representing players old and new, this album will take you on a sometimes gritty, sometimes mesmerizing – but most likely a combination of both – sonic journey that exemplifies the breadth and depth of D&B in its current state.

The phenomenal tracklist that features household names such as Rudimental, Sigma, Noisia, Friction, Calyx & Teebee and more underground scene favourites including Rockwell, Ivy Lab, Rido & Counterstrike and Dimension, alongside newcomers Cartoon, Dawn Wall, Ownglow and Ed:It proves that there is no other collection more representative of the genre than this one.

11 diverse but equally mind blowing exclusives on 1 album from the likes of Noisia and Phace, Kove, Technimatic, Bladerunner and The Upbeats demonstrates the complete and utter trust that not just the community of fans has but the DJ/producer community at large have for this essential and timeless brand in selecting and representing only the best of the scene each year.

Representing an unparalleled diversity of talent, Drum&BassArena 2016 is the biggest album of the series yet.

Drum&BassArena 2016 is out March 11, 2016
