From Vol 1 we get the rolling bass of ‘Cupid VIP’, the dark gangsta rap style ‘Deja Vu’, ‘Forcefield VIP’ with its bleepy timeless jungle vibes, ‘Get It’ uses chopped up vocal samples in a Hip Hop style and adds in booming sub bass and tight rhythms, ‘Serious’ is a trip to the darkside, dark rumbling subs, scary pads and vox, its all there, ‘The Death Star’ sounds very 92/93 along the lines of ‘Hello Darkness’ and is one of my favourite tracks on this compilation and Vol 1 closes with ‘Wickedest Man Alive’ which opens with a slow building half time intro before switching into some classic Bay Bkane, listen to clips and buy here: http://www.junodownload.com/products/bay-b-unreleased-jungle-gems-vol-1/2574616-02/
