A big, boomin’ Bassrub from stateside breaker Curtis B. Taking the original from Ruen & Mister Gray, he layers with trademark speaker busting beats for a perfect breaks & bass cut.

You can always expect fine output from Top Drawer Digital, Ben Venom is a producer who has featured on the label before with great tunes like ‘Hold Tight’ and ‘I’m A Shadow’ and his new EP keeps up with his slick production and penchant for turning out euphoric and thoroughly banging tracks!!!
‘Alchemist’ opens with a trance like intro and old skool rave stabs building up the tension before exploding into some filthy bass and breaks
‘Sky Mission’ also opens with a epic intro and tough 2 steppy breaks, the pads and melodies sit in that space between old skool rave, trance and house, uplifting and energetic while ragga style vox slip and slide in and out of the mix, all in all 2 excellent tracks from the mighty Top Drawer Digital!!!
What with Burning Man nearly washed out this week, thought it prudent to have a quick peep at a couple of stonking mixes from a recent festival that went, by all accounts, less wet than the Burn – Shambala. Download ‘em these are keepers!
Stickbuds – Fractal Forest Mix 2014
Seems like the Fractal Forest is is haven for all things bass and breaky. A.Skillz, Featurecast, JFB, Beardyman and many more graced the decks this year with their noise. Great mixes have been coming out of here for years, and this year Shambala 10-year veteran Stickybuds dropped this great set this year. The genres here go from Ghetto Funk, Glitch and Breaks, to Drum and Bass via a sprig of Moombah and loads of custom edits and acapellas. Very very good. Once again Stickybuds brings the goods, looking forward to whats next for this Canadian DJ.

Neon Steve – Fractal Forest Mix 2014
From Canadian Neon Steve, this mix starts a bit more on the chilled disco vibe, but winds it way through loads of genres over the 90 minutes. According to Soundcloud genre descriptors, this mix includes: “Dry hump, Wet Hump, Cedar Stump Fist Pump, and Rinsed Out Rave Hump”. Have a listen and spot them there genres on top of some good breaks, hip hop and other bits.

Skewiff – Ghetto Latin & Broken Ballroom Remixed
Skeewiff bringing something new and different to the table here I reckon. Does what it says on the tin quite nicely, with each remixer bringing a different flavour of latin vibe on each cut. Hong Kong Ping Pong for the ghetto funk sound, Swingrowers on the D n B side are particular highlights.
This much awesome must be a hard act to keep up but Midlands imprint Born On Road keep bringing it every time, their latest release is a on point slice of choice ragga jungle, big on the energy and uplifting vibes and complimented by Eva Lazarus’ vocals full of dancehall swagger, remixes come from Marvelous Cain & Dope Ammo plus a full on dancehall reggae mix from Mr Benn

After a lengthy hiatus, the South coast’s finest purveyors of liquid/funky DnB return with 4 groovy cuts!!! None more groovy than the flanged disco attack of Prime Attack’s ‘Hold Tight’ which cleverly combines the disco vibes with a oldskool/rave edge through cleverly picked vocal samples, Youngen’s ‘Solitude’ is the DnB soundtrack to a slow sunrise on a sleepy day, warm and relaxing with nice subtle stabs and bleeps, Dan Guidance’s ‘The Messenger; is positively drenched in soul, funk and jazz combined and to round things up Subver5ion’s ‘Out Of Reach’ is a cinematic/ambient thing of brilliance, an absolute must have EP from Liquid Boppers
Killer slice of broken, garagey, housey filth from Cause N Affect vs Preditah. This is an essential part of your weekend selection!
The second in the series of ‘Jungle Rollers’ on Sappo’s Advisory Recs features 4 tracks of quality DnB, 2 tracks by Sappo, the blistering bass of Liam Neeson sampling ‘Taken VIP’ and NU Elementz’ remix of ‘Bristol Beat’ , a nice blend of nice Jazzy sounds and filthy futuristic bass!!!
