Anyone with a decent record collection from the early 90s will treasure a fair few releases from the producers on this line up. The likes of 4Hero, Foul Play, 2 Bad Mice and Nookie don’t really need any hype to those familiar with the beginnings of drum n’ bass and jungle. Each of them can boast an incredibly impressive back catalogue of influential and often game-changing tracks that were played and played again by the likes of Fabio, Grooverider, Randall, Doc Scott, Jumpin’ Jack Frost, Ray Keith, and all of the original DJs who led the scene back in the day. Still to this day, those of us who were there will tell you that the vibe of that era can’t be beaten… and that’s a fact largely due to the innovation of these producers. Often working on studio set-ups that would confound and totally frustrate a modern producer, the sheer number of hours they put into completing each track made the whole effort a labour of love, which is very evident in the tunes themselves. The mastery and precision of these guys’ breakbeat manipulation remains, in many ways, unsurpassed to this day.

This is a bit of a special line-up. And it’s truly a very rare chance to hear these guys together on the same bill. Don’t miss it.

 

Our resident old skool/hardcore nutter Tariq, caught up with Si from 2 Bad Mice to delve a little deeper…

How did you guys get into raving and the scene in general?

I basically got into it through Sean – I was a Hip Hop kid and he introduced me to a whole different sound….

And when did you start producing?

It was 91-92

Who were your early influences when it came to production?

Joey Beltram, Break the Limits, Frank de Wulf, Shut Up and Dance, Blapps Posse to name a few…

Tell us a bit about the iconic ‘Bombscare’ track, how did it come together?

Bombscare is Seans baby and it was masterminded by him. If you break it down to the raw components though – it is a very simple and effective track….Try doing it. I think that there is about 10 samples in it if that.

How did you meet Rob Playford and what led to you getting signed to Moving Shadow?

Rob lived in the same village as me and we knew his girlfriend. We hassled her to hassle Rob to let us in the studio and the rest is history.

Of all the events you have played at down the years doing P.As and DJ sets, is there a favourite moment and can you tell us a bit about it?

Too many to mention but playing Glasto 2013 is my moment. Loved it. Recently Sean and Paul did Dourfest and that was pretty amazing.

We’d love to hear your take on the debate about what the greatest year of the rave scene was?

For us 1992.

Moving forward to the present, what do you think of the ‘NuSkool’ scene I.e 140/Future Jungle, Hardcore/Rave Breaks etc. Any artists and labels you rate in the present era?

I follow it and love it. So many decent producers out there like Radiokillaz, Pressa, Breakz, Vinyl Junkie and the Sub Slayers mob…

Can you tell us 3 tunes that are currently a mainstay of your sets?

Wow!! Difficult one. Rocking down the House remix, Johnny Osborne – In your Eyes and anything by Radiokillaz!!

Now, you’re going to be DJ’ing at ‘Stepback Sessions’ @Jamm, Brixton on the 1st August, along with a whole load of old skool legends, that’s going to be a pretty special night, what can we expect from 2 Bad Mice on the night?

Mainly heavy drinking from one member – the other is the designated driver and the more sensible one (me)

Lastly, any shout outs?

So many – everyone knows they mean the world to me and have contributed so much to the 2BM tale. Special mention to Randall who was such a massive influence and friend to me back in the day. So glad he has asked us to play…..

So massive big ups to Si for answering our Q’s. Make sure you’re heading down to Jamm for this one, it’s gonna be massive!

B-Roll’s Bassbins #2

Morning breakers!  Couple of belting releases for you this week, and in a new addition to this column – I flick back through my breaks vinyl to highlight a tune from what I consider to be the golden age of breaks.  Not to take anything away from the releases these days, but I seem to hear a lot of older mixes cropping up again online, and the tunes still do the business.  Nothing wrong with looking back and reflecting how we got to where we are today!

B-Roll's Bassbins #2
Gotta be careful about not putting too much Finger Lickin records stuff in here, but it’s hard.  Looking at my collection, I have loads and loads of their records, white labels too.  Part of what makes these records so awesome for me is the great artwork by Jem Panufnik.  Serious talent.  If I had my way, my flat would have every one of his covers framed up on the walls.  Not sure what Mrs. B-Roll would think about that!  Both tracks are absolute corkers, Foxy Moron is a serious acid-tinged banger, but you they both still hold up real well.

Buy it here.

While we are on the subject of Jem Panufnik, here is his tasty release from his musical alter-ego – Jem Stone.  Its a tip top, Hip Hop /Ghetto Funk extravaganza with a slick vocal from Mouthmaster Murph & MC Goldseal. Definitely one for the funked up party floors. With remixes by the one and only GF master Featurecast , you need this in your box.  Digital exclusive, available from Juno here.

Grab the accompanying freebie HERE.

 

Morlack – Loose Booty

French funk blaster Morlack brings a 14-track album of Nu/Ghetto/Glitch and swing style funk.  Nice mix of styles and vocals, an album you could actually listen to, not just for the dancefloors!

Buy it from Juno here.

Janette Slack & Some DJ Feat. Tuhin Chisti – Kut Me Sum

Renowned breaks DJ Janette Slack recently upped sticks and shifted to the other side of the world.  London’s loss is Hong Kong’s gain though, and here we have her first EP release from that side of the pond.  Solid package here.  Original track is a nice rising breaker, but there are some super remixes too.  Funkanomics turn in a trap-esque re-work, while B-Side brings it to the Ghetto Funk side of things.  The Chamber version though, is the one that sent shivers down my spine.  Deep rolling bassline, total winner.

Lots to like here, can’t wait for the next release!  Buy now from Juno.

The latest signing on the awesome Jalapeno Records is the laidback funk & soul sounds of The Ephemerals. With an all star line-up featuring former members of Keke Mokoro, Gene Dudley Group, Dakhla, Kalakuta Millionaires, Marvelous & Bombs, the band seriously know their stuff!

Lead singer Wolfgang Valbrun only began singing publicly three years ago but has risen sharply to become an in demand artist. The musicians in the band are all funk educated to the highest degree too, including blog regular Jimi Needles on the skins! The band are to release their debut LP Sept 1st 2014 via Jalapeno. Expect big things from the Ephemerals.

We have the slick Featurecast remix to premiere for you today. Mr ‘Cast takes things off the burner a touch from his most recent Ghetto Funk productions. Here he turns out a smooth as silk, jazzy hip hop interpretation which is one of those tracks you just cant help but nod your head to (or shake your ass, you know what I mean?). If you’re a fan of Featurecast or a fan of solid hip hop/funk music, you NEED this in your collection.

Also available is the Smoove remix which pumps up the funk to 10!
