Lucas- Say Goodnight, Close Your eyes, Think Of Tomorrow



Buy On Beatport

3 brand new tracks by Lucas on Top Drawer Digital. ‘Say Goodnight’ is a firey dark number drawing influence from the J-Tek sound of 2009 to a house tempo. ‘Close Your Eye’ treads a delicate line between darkness and light and has a warm psychedelic feel enhanced by the spoken sample. ‘Think Of Tomorrow’ closes the EP in a more experimental freeform way, a deep melody heavy track with haunting pianos and rolling breaks. A welcome return from Lucas

Subessence – Futures Past [Unified Audio]


Buy This Album Here

Its been a while since Subessence’s last LP but all good things are worth the wait. This new LP for Unified Audio comprises mainly of DnB tracks but not your average DnB. ‘Futures Past’ totally breaks the mould incorporating mellow guitars, gentle wistful pianos, sweet saxophones, gorgeous female vocals and thought provoking spoken word samples.

Subessence inspire the mind with an array of sonic landscapes and tapestries that evoke far far away sun-soaked lands of relaxation. An album of real class

Dragonfly 001 [Stay On Target]

Ravers will know Dragon Fly for the infamous ‘Visions Of Rage’ tracked caned by all the top DJs back in the day.  But here is a couple of much rarer Jungle/Jungle Tekno tracks remastered by the dedicated Stay On Target team.

Marshall Jefferson- Lock The Doors (Midnight City, Mr. Gonzo Remixes)

Fringe- You Got Me/Speakers On The Window Ledge

While many of today’s NuSkool Hardcore/Jungle artists are prolific and there’s nothing wrong with that. Fringe clearly favours quality over quantity. Authenticness right down to the finest touches. His first release on 36 Hertz is a lesson in how to produce pure Jungle Tekno like its 1992 all over again. ‘You Got Me’ and ‘Speakers On The Window Ledge’ (below) get it right down to the drum programming, the samples, everything basically. Best NuSkool tracks of 2016 hands down.


The Carry Nation- Breakwater

Gonna shout out the excellent 8dpromo service for bringing my attention to this awesome independent/underground label Get Up Recordings. Following in the footsteps of Local Group & W. Jeremy, The Carry Nation put together an amazing hybrid of house, techno and breaks that has to be heard!!!

Rhythm 4 Reason – Make Some Noise For The DJs



Buy Here

As 2016 draws to a close, Rhythm 4 Reason throw a contender for the best track of the year into the hat.

Love House music? Also love oldskool hardcore circa 1992? Messrs Wayne Dudley & Phil Maher clearly do too. The difference is while the likes of you and I endlessly debate on social media over which 92 tunes has most merit, these two went and made a brand new tune with all the best bits of the original oldskool sound. Rushy pianos, call to action MC vox, uplifitng synths and on the ‘Sound Of The 92′ Cru’ mix…breaks, yes breaks!!!

And if you’re more of the 4×4 persuasion (and why not after all?) then the ‘2 Kool For The Newskool’ Mix retains all that oldskool flava in a massive Tech House package.  ‘Make Some Noise For The DJs’ is out now on Ulybug. as far as this writer is concerned it’s one of several Rhythm 4 Reason tunes that stand up as this years biggest and best.

Subdata – Measure/Native [Boomsha Recordings]



Buy The EP Here

Subdata makes breathtaking Jungle & DnB for labels such as Nottingham based Omni Music and now with his first release for Boomsha….

The tempo is lowered to suit the established and distinct style of Boomsha, home to many of the Jungle scene’s very best. The style, however on both tracks is deep, thoughtful and there’s certainly no slacking in the bassline department!!!

It’s easy to pick up on the faithfulness and love for Jungle/DnB over the decades in these two fine examples of contrasting ambience and darkness set to true junglist breakbeats chopped up in true junglist fashion. Subdata makes a classy contribution to one of the most admirable release catalogues in the modern DnB/Breaks/Jungle pool of imprints. Nothing less than a 10/10, definitely much more!!!
