Halflight Spins a Mix to Show Us the Sound of Bristol


Bristol-based drum and bass artist Halflight is putting his unique style on full display with the latest mix in the This Is Home series.

If you’re someone who loves drum and bass and is on the hunt for some fresh artists to follow, Halflight is one who should be on your list. Based out of Bristol, he’s been churning out some serious stunners over the past few years after branching out from his previous project Cutline and embarking on a solo career.

A frequent face on Viper Recordings with tunes like “Call Back,” “Lean,” and “The Bodysnatcher,” Halflight has continued to impress with his recent releases that have found their way onto Rampage Recordings and Device. In fact, he left a lasting impact with both the original and VIP versions of “All I Need” earlier this year as he swept us up into a state of drum and bass bliss.

Now, as he rides the wave of 2021 in style as he carves out more space in the scene, Halflight has spun up a mix for the This Is Home series to showcase some of his own tunes but others that inspire him as well. Filled to the brim with tracks like S.P.Y’s “Dub Safari,” Bad Company’s “Planet Dust,” Roni Size & DJ Die’s “Music Box,” Krust’s “Set Speed,” and countless others, it’s an absolute ride that will energize anyone’s day.

Bristol is a melting pot of different cultures and people, that thrives on its inclusivity of everyone and everything. As the birthplace of such legendary Drum & Bass artists as Roni Size Reprezent, Kosheen and Break and nights like Intrigue, Collective, and The Blast, there’s a reason Bristol and Drum & Bass have been synonymous with each other for over 25 years.


Listen to this fantastic mix from Halflight to dive into his drum and bass style, download or stream “All I Need” on your favorite platform, and stay tuned for more from this rising star!
