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

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!!!

Alpha & Vytol go in with some firing ragga jungle on ‘Who Say’

Invisible Landscape’s ‘Dance No Mercy’ is a fresh unique sounding track with soulful hip hop esque vibes, a big booming reese bass nad crunching drums

DJR @ Boomtown Festival 2014
I had the privilege of rocking the Ballroom from 3.00 until 4am at the end of a glorious Saturday night lineup at this years Boomtown Fair. I had the closing set and so I took the opportunity to rock out harder and heavier than normal, less swing and more ghetto funk, soul & funk remixes, and drum & bass was the order of the day. Big shout out to Bass6 for incredible beatboxing & introduction and to Mike from Dutty Moonshine for serious crowd hype at the end. Much fun!

Asbo Records serve up their first in a series of remix EPs and the gold standard remains, these guys don’t mess about!!!! 4 firing remixes, first up we have the seriously bass heavy remix of Jinx’s ‘Who Goes There’ by Sterling Sound, then the script is flipped as Jinx takes on Sterling Sound’s ‘Ladies Ting’ whose slinky intro gives away for some roling vibes and reverberating bass in that timeless jungle fashion!!! Next up, another Sterling Sound reworking, this time of Habitat’s ‘Around The Clock’, classic jungle breaks, hip hop and ragga samples, this one takes it back to 95 with a beast of a tearout track!!!! We finish up with Habitat’s remix of Sterling Sound’s ‘No Doubt’ going for the 2 step vibes a la Roni Size back in the day, another winner from the Asbo camp!!!!
