We can always count on Dropping Gems to hook it up with forward-thinking producers and spacious, intellectually-chilled tracks. Gem Drops Two follows up on the trend with the same headspace 808’s and a brand-new set of producers.
Some of the tracks start with a jolt of broken-beat energy right from the start, but more of them take their time to build up into a groove. There really isn’t a single song on the release we don’t like, but in case you need this much convincing to download this amazing collection, here are a few of our favorites.

From the Dropping Gems website:
As with our last compilation, our basic mission here has been to cull together the “best of” from the diverse range of styles, scenes, head-spaces and localities that catch our ear. We’re happy to call that mission a success, one that we hope to share with fans of the first Gem Drops and newcomers alike.
