Matrix & Futurebound - Family Feat. Robert Owens (Nu Tone & Logistics Remix)

It randomly dawned on me today that I haven't posted any drum & bass for a while. What better way to begin the track posts again eh. From Factory Records to this, ha. I'm far from up to date on whats going on within the 'scene' at the moment or on any of the big tunes either. The below Matrix & Futurebound track being the last current thing I have. What tracks do I need to check out, taking into account the more soulful/musical style of d&b I personally prefer? Any recommendations or even links would be much appreciated. Merci beaucoup.

VA - Palatine: The Factory Story 1979-1990

To cut a long story short, after hearing the below track again recently and being blown away at how good it still sounds, I ended up delving into my collection and re-discovering this superb compilation. Half way through uploading the first disc I did a quick search and lo & behold, someone else has already posted it which saves me a lot of time & energy. Lazy shit I hear you say. You'd be right. Apologies to the author of the blog I'm linking to but I'm sure he/she won't mind. This is a brilliant retrospective of one of the greatest record labels of all time. For the very few who may never have come across or heard of Factory Records before, check the info link.
