EDITORS’ NOTES

Londoner Mark Wilkinson was in primary school when drum & bass enjoyed its cocksure ‘90s heyday, but he gives the genre an impressively authentic and slick rebooting on his debut album. The producer/DJ airlifts in some colossal EDM-style drops and detonates with utter confidence on a series of red-blooded bangers (the insidious “Heartbeat” and belting “Take You Higher”), but it’s the subtler, morning-after cuts that register strongest. The smoky and soulful “Afterglow”, in particular, promises a future untethered to any genre boundaries.
