Luke Vibert Presents UK Garave Vol 1

Luke Vibert Presents UK Garave Vol 1


There’s no sound quite like the sound of Luke Vibert and we are very excited about his new LP ‘Luke Vibert Presents UK Garave Vol 1′ Get your ravin’ shoes on for this one!!!

Luke Vibert has featured on labels such as Planet Mu and Warp back in the 90’s and 00’s. His music production is legendary and so is his eclectic DJ sets.

For Luke Vibert Presents UK Garave Vol 1, we explore Luke’s ravin roots with the analogue thrills of Future Detroit style ‘The Future’, a track filled with Inner City style stabs that punctuate a twisted riff and Sheffield circa 1990 bleeps.

‘U Can’t Touch Dat’ offers a view into a genius mind, Disco loops merge with Techno synths and Jungle Tekno overtones at a house music tempo.

‘Back With Me’ is one of the purest odes to oldskool ‘ardcore. Plenty of off-kilter keys, rolling amens and pitched up female vox

‘Heard It All B4′ will bring joy to your heart, a riotous dance through 91/92′ with some 808 State esque warm melody backdrops, a classic crunchy amen break and more of that trippy Jungle Tekno styling.

‘Everybody’ makes it a hat trick for the ‘ardcore inspired sounds, loads of familiar vocal samples, more spacey House/Techno/Rave synth work and a break that screams oldskool

‘Feel The Melody’ runs Garage, Electro, Jungle & House through the hardware along with a giddily pleasing array of vocal refrains that will make 90s heads like this blogger lose their proverbial

Like LoFi/Deep House? Well you’ll love Luke’s sped up and snappy rejigging of the sound

How about ‘Clap Sing’? The Prodigy’s ‘Android’ meets a dreamy disco sample and crispy Techno drums, mmmmmmm!!!

‘Feel The Riddim’ gets hold of some chunky kicks from 90s US House music, speeds them up, throws in some reverse bubblin’ bass, jungle sirens/bloops, Nebula II ‘Seance’ pads and a bit of Soul II Soul, the results are mindblowing and a whole lotta fun!!!

‘Pump’ closes out  UK Garave Vol 1, leaving this writer gagging for more. More dreamy house sounds at a quickened tempo. Luke Vibert fuses the seemingly incompatible, he doesn’t just achieve this task, he makes it sound awesome!!!


Lee Total- LoFo Remixes

LoFo Chart Image

Lee Total’s ‘LoFo’ gets a shiny bleepy set of new remixes on Bad Habit Muzik

‘LoFo’ in original form received huge support from the likes of Slipmatt. Paying Tech House homage to a Sheffield warehouse bleep n’ bass classic, ‘LoFo’  fits nicely into an upfront House/Deep/Tech DJ set. Now with remixes from Sweet LA, Wainscott, Seizure, Dweller & StefanoB, expect a second wave of bleep fueled hysteria on the dancefloor!!!

Strange Rollers- The Sweet & Sour EP

Strange Rollers- The Sweet & Sour EP


Pre-Order From Beatport>>>

Due Date 15/5/17

Strange Rollers makes an emphatic return to Top Drawer Digital with ‘The Sweet & Sour EP’ Also making a return is Barry Blades, a new alias for the 601 member who really impresses with a stunning remix contribution to the EP

The title track-‘Set Me Free’ is an incredible blend of lush 90’s House music piano riffs, jagged rave/techno synth sweeps and 2 step Garage beats

‘Set Me Free’ is a smooth and seamless fusion of Techno, Bass Music and rushy pianos. Strange Rollers has made great tracks for decades but his game is exceptionally strong on this guaranteed repeat play banger!!!

As previously mentioned, Barry Blades, part of the 601 team embarks on a new musical venture with his remix of ‘Set Me Free’ and it will truly take you somewhere special. Euphoric oldskool rave meets chunky cut up breaks but this isn’t a good enough description of how good this is. Depending on your angle, you might like this writer, detect a strong sense of the early 90s sound of Sonz Of A Loop Da Loop Era or Krome & Time in a modern setting. However you chose to interpret, you will be blown away by this roller coaster of brilliance.


Bay B Kane – Future Destination Exit 6

Bay B Kane - Future Destination Exit 6 [Boomsha Recordings]

The true King of the Jungle music sound, Bay B Kane takes us to ‘Future Destination Exit 6′ on Boomsha Recordings.

Bay B Kane & JahKillin transport the riff from Russian Trance classic ‘Resurrection’ by PPK and place it in the perfect setting of a Future Jungle framework entitled ‘Don’t Ask Me Why’

‘Visions’ reminds how good a bluesy male vocal and mellow guitars and chords can sound to some 150BPM bombastic Jungle breakage

‘Clearly Obscured’ takes us on a timeless DnB voyage up and in between the clouds in the company of some BBK style boomin’ subs

‘Dimensions’ is the junglist soul of Future Destination Exit 6, sweet female vox and urban sounds sway over Future Jungle beats

But where this is a subtle soul there needs to be a bit of rage and that’s where ‘Overlock’ comes in. Fast, furious and assertive DnB that hits the spot hard.

From 1992 to 2017, a quarter of a century strong in the game and Bay B Kane maintains a sound that is strongly unique and instantly appealing. Another essential EP to add to that extensive back cat. Boomsha is now 5 years in the game and as a label, hasn’t missed a beat in terms of quality content. If you buy only one EP this week, make it this one and if you buy more than one EP, still ensure to get a copy of this!!!

THE WISE GUYS- Better That Sound E.P

THE WISE GUYS- Better That Sound E.P

Ooooh, some ‘Wise Guys’ huh? Making quality Jungle Tekno in 2017 on Kambo Records Huh? Why we oughta write a blog and tell you to pick up this (name your price) release from Bandcamp and add these four pure 93 style oldskool bangers to your collection, nyuk nyuk nyuk!!!!

VA- Chip Shop Vol 2

Chip Butty Records - Chip Shop Vol 2

Chip Butty Records present ‘Chip Shop Vol 2′, a mixed artist compilation of underground and upfront bass music with some of the scene’s biggest and brightest names on board

We start with Dr. Oscillator ‘Cocaine VIP’, a fast paced 4×4 bassline track with booming subs and sustained blasts of wall shaking wubs. Shaun Dean – Stop The Bullet VIP propels us on a happy collision course with the original Sheffield sound or the ‘Niche Sound’. Garage style vocals find room in the high-octane kicks and throbs of this Shaun Dean banger with the explosive properties of a Mentos trapped in a coke bottle.

Dr Cryptic – Murphy opens in scary Sci-Fi fashion with USS Enterprise bleeps and Starfleet communicator sounds before an ominous voice (Robocop) precedes a murky invasion of Tech/Neuro stabs and crackly kicks. Rowdy chipmunk vocals and Funky/Hard House style keys are how Sekt-87 – Bop The Bass begins just before this get seriously squelchy while staying super funky!!!

A bit of tongue in cheek fun it is then for Sammy Virji – Norton, a track that goes in via the oldskool garage route with a quirky vocal, at least for the first minute or so. After that, it flips into a hard as nails banger with striking stabs. Staying on that 2 step tip is Ussy – Rolls Royce, the chopped up girly vocals and stepping beats are soon met with a high-pitched bassline making for a nice contrast of classic soul and hardy hardware!!!

It appears the jungle came alive and took Deadbeat UK who returned with ‘Luv’, jungle sirens and atmospheric chords meet roaring lions in musical form for the oldskool meets nuskool stomper-watch out for some more R&B diva vocals making an appearance towards the middle!!! Its time to get griiimeyyyy for Little Mesters & Fiyahman –  Bun Dem, time to crank up the tempo, strap on the sinister strings and go heavy with the duelling bass!!!

Next up, the badman don dada Rico Tubbs shows us why he is the boss!!! Ravey pianos and a skanker of a lead riff, that’s a ‘Warning’ that must be heeded!!! We stay on full steam with Liam B – Law Breaker, a ragga style ravin’ rocket!!!

The familiar sounds of the horns made famous by Tim Taylor back in 92 act as the battle call that opens AudioGutter – Yakisoba, perhaps the raviest track on this comp after Rico Tubbs with Korg Pianos and hectic beats with drumrolls aplenty. And we see things out with the comedic samples and grungey synths of Judge Chucky – Customer Service (Klassic Remix), a tune that rather like the angry phone call recipient featured within should not be messed with!!!

Chip Shop Vol 2 needs to be on your menu, it’s the vital fix for your taste for bass!!!


Alan Cross- Back In The Day

Alan Cross - Back In The Day {Census Sound]

Back in the days when I was young I’m not a kid anymore
But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again

Those were the words of a rapper named Ahmad back in 94′ but this is Alan Cross taking us ‘Back In The Day’ to a different sound, not Hip Hop but definitely House music with that original vibe and sound making you wish you were a young un’ all over again!!!

‘Back In The Day’ centres around a big uplifting piano lead with some vocals to pump you up in 90s oldskool fashion, that with bouncing funky bass and rolling percussion and some cool reverse pattern sections is surely all you need to lose it late into the night!!!

If breaks is yo’ bad then kWeRK’s remix of ‘Back In The Day’ is spring loaded with jumpin’ breakbeats and handclaps with a filtered disco feel that gets infiltrated with some shaggy UK bass!!!

Huff’s Funky House remix says ‘white isle’ in big bold letters, its electrifying and energetic to the max. Close your eyes while listening and you can see people dancing on the sand its so good!!!

Kniteforce Records – The Remix’s 11 & 12


KF68 – The Remixes Part 11 Limited Edition 12″ Vinyl

Original oldskool imprint Kniteforce continues its series of fresh and exclusive new releases with two new LTD edition vinyl releases featuring new remixes of label classics from an array of bright new talent and some true oldskool originals. We start with KF68 – The Remixes Part 11

2 Croozin’-Code Red (Fat Controller Remix) 

The DJ/producer behind one of the greatest oldskool anthems ever (In Complete Darkness) remixes ‘Code Red’ keeping things close to the original while adding in aspects of current DnB and Jungle production. The all important piano shines even more on this classy update with plenty of crunching Ray Keith style amen breaks

Alk E D-Shining Bright (JePh Remix)

JePH fuels up the steam engine for a frantic and lively underground Ragga Jungle remix of ‘Shining Bright’ Amazing drum programming really carries this remix along nicely as do the variety of cool samples from the horns to the spinbacks and potent shots of room filling bass.

DJ Poosie-It’s Gonna Be (Justin Time Remix)

The artist behind stone cold yesteryear rave gems like ‘Sweet In Pocket’ remixes DJ Poosie ‘It’s Gonna Be Alright’ in the Hardcore style that was once a staple of the Netherlands and the North of England plus the whole of Scotland. Hard bouncy kicks (bit like Bouncy techno) and Elstak influenced pads, some amazing piano playing and House/R&B vocals, the seemingly unlikely combination that in actual fact works incredibly well. This is the sound of all night raves like Vibealite personified.

DJ Force & The Evolution-High On Life (Saiyan & Cru-l-t Remix)

Saiyan & Cru-l-t rework ‘High On Life’ into a 96′ Happy Hardcore stomper with nice Euro keys, classic kicks and cut up amens sounding rather like Force & Styles circa 96. We get some additional vocals that remind us of the nod to a well-known Scottish rave act in ‘High On Life’ and a cool midsection with fun key changes. This writer used to love Happy Hardcore and this remix reminds him why he did.



KF69 – The Remixes Part 12 Limited Edition 12″ Vinyl

Part 11 was pretty darn special huh? Well, brace yourself for KF69 – The Remixes Part 12

DJ Luna C-Free As The Sky (Hyper On Experience Remix)

You read that right, none other than Hyper On Experience on the remix of this Luna C tune and that is something to get seriously hyped about. In essence, this is a continuation of the original pioneering HOE sound from back in 1992 in the purest form. Once upon a time guys like these made sounds like this on difficult to use hardware, no DAWs like the ones available today. That Henry Rollins bloke ought to sit in the studio and watch these guys go then see if he wants to rant about pushing buttons. Forgive my gushing but I am so immensely happy to hear these guys make music again especially when its as good as this!!!!

Cru L T-Snow In Summer (Alex Jungle Remix)

Right, ahem, so Alex Jungle remixes  Snow In Summer in breakcore meets 93 hardcore fashion and it’s just something else!!!! How about those busy Belgian stabs, dominator/mentasm riffs, little splashes of 8 bit/chiptune and dreamy 70s pop music vocals and quirky samples? Perfect mayhem!!!

Richie Whizz-Song Of Angels (Shadowplay Remix) 

Shadowplay complete Part 12 with a remix of Song Of Angels that screams Kniteforce from every kick, every synth and every second. Having a bad day?, put this on, it won’t fail to lift you up again. You’ve got to know something to love it and if you know Kniteforce whether a newbie or a 40 something who experienced it all in real time, this remix embodies everything about the label, its style and ethos. Manic fun!!!! Sit down Richie!!!
