Last year, Spearhead label boss BCee released Come & Join Us, a vibrant full-length exploration that saw the producer working with a string of like-minded vocalists, musicians and studio buffs. Thanks For Joining Us sees that material get a working over from a veritable who's who of drum & bass talent. Break kicks things off with a hazy, dreamy and melodious interpretation of "Morning Star", while Ulterior Motive skillfully blend classic jungle rhythms, and rubbery electric bass flashes on their rendition of "Firebox". Elsewhere, Bachelors of Science turn "I Believe" into a jazz-flecked, soulful D&B anthem, and Calibre puts a rocket under the dub-flecked warmth of "Typical Description". Arguably best of all, though, is Klute's superb liquid jungle re-boot of "Come & Join Us".
