Ahoy lads, The Rinse has returned for a very special 21st episode curated by the mighty Ben Hall and Simon James, AKA Delta Heavy (pictured).

It was five years ago that Delta Heavy debuted on iconic D&B label RAM Records with the smash hit Space Time, and in the proceeding months the duo quickly ascended the ranks of both D&B and dubstep–undeniably a rare feat.

Hitting both shores hard, American and British bass heads couldn’t get enough of tracks like Get By and Hold Me–both of which came with some of the most innovative visuals to ever hit the dance music scene (here and here, respectively).

Coming off of one of 2014’s biggest anthems in Reborn (debuted right here on LessThan3), the duo has returned with a new EP featuring the soaring, vocal title-track Ghost (below) and the funk-infused, double A-side workout, Tremors. Both tracks are available right here at the RAM Records shop in addition to two massive remixes by Zomboy and Infuze.

Without further ado, let’s hand it off to Delta Heavy and find out what new drum & bass the boys are rinsing.

Nero – Two Minds (Dimension Remix) [MTA]
Our friend Rob has been on a roll this year, and his sound palette is a good match for a D&B take on Nero’s original. The squelchy bassline is a nice take on the original and Alana’s vocals sit really nicely. Looking forward to playing this out.

Delta Heavy – Ghost (Zomboy Remix) [RAM]
Had to include something from our latest EP Ghost as we are really proud of it. Josh kept the tempo the same but flipped our original on its head in trademark fashion; the production on this is ridiculous and has gone down a storm online already.

Cyantific – No More Heroes [Viper]
Really solid roller from Jon Cyantific; a fairly minimal drop that still has good energy and weight and a nice way to switch vibes in a set.

Ivy Lab – Sunday Crunk (Mejfus Remix) [Critical Music]
One of the biggest D&B tracks of 2015, still gets one of the biggest reactions in our set. Has a very fresh, swaggering feel. Killer remix, and the mixdown is huge.

Kove feat. Moko – Hurts (Special Request Remix) [MTA]
Love Special Request, and his early ’90s rave revival sound works perfectly with Moko’s vocal and the 126bpm breakbeats. A real journey of a remix at over eight-minutes long; goosebumps when the signature Paul Woolford piano comes in half way through.
