The year 2010 is about to slip away from us and into history. I recently took the opportunity to play some of the year's best drum & bass music on my final Futurhythm episode for the year (broadcast date, December 29th), which has become somewhat of a tradition for the show year after year. Being that it is also the end of a decade, I decided to see just how things have come along since the last decade rolled over and into the next. The show started off with some classics from 1999/2000/2001. Then at the halfway mark, we took a look at some key releases from the year 2010. These are by no means definitive lists or picks, but rather a mix of some of the best in my opinion. Here's how it went down:
