The 27th of March sees round three for Med School at The Colombian (Corsica Studios), this time joined by very special guest Klute, ready to deliver a tasty Commercial Suicide serving.

At the mere age of fifteen, Tom Withers saw his debut release with alter-ego 80’s punk band The Stupids.

The band also features two Med School favourites; Detail and Hidden Element, who have both previously featured in the label’s renowned ‘New Blood’ compilations.

So, to celebrate the fact it’s Friday, we’ve invited him to explore the darker side of his musical palette and run us through some of his favourite dark drum & bass bangers…

If I’m honest I’ve always done that last bit, but I also used get all sweaty down the front, brocking out harder than Ross Kemp in a war zone. So ahead of Med School at the Colombian on 27th March, I thought I’d put together a list of 20 bangers that still bring out my inner raver. If I get a bit giddy on the night, I may even try and slip one into my set…
