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

Subdata – Measure/Native [Boomsha Recordings]

3892-420216_600

 

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!!!

Strictly NuSkool Blog’s Glowkid At Old Skool Festival 2016 (Interview)

gk_1

 

Our good friend Glowkid DJ’ed at This year’s Old Skool Festival in Lodz, Poland. You can read the interview where he talks about the event and some of his favourite tunes and artist right now over at Strictly NuSkool Blog.

A few highlights from the interview:

Favourite Event:

Definitely that was Old Skool Festival 2016. None of us can ever forget our first gig or any other big gig that you are involved with in the past, but I’d say without any second thought that Old Skool Festival is my biggest gig and booking at the moment till the next bigger thing of course!

Favourite Oldskool Artists:

Hard to say but I’d pick without any particular order, Luna-C (crazy ideas, innovative stylee), Altern-8 (apart from the EPs & remixes they were kinda Sex Pistols in the scene. One and only official album release but their “Full on Mask Hysteria” is still a Bible to us all and showed the way to the others) and finally Moby (nothing can beat his 1990 – mid 90’s oldskool techno stuff. Genius of an artist by all means!)

Favourite Oldskool Tunes:

“Rachel Wallace – Tell Me Why”
“Jimmy J & Cru-L-T – Six Days On The Run”
“Westbam – Celebration Generation”

Current Favourite Hardcore/NuSkool Breaks Tracks:

“Paul Cronin – Kim K‘ Boobs Out [RAVESKOOL]”

“DJCRIP – Rock Me Steady”

“Insane & Mind – Open Up Your Heart [HOH]”

Inspector Sands- Can’t Stop Album (Breakbeat Hardcore)

Inspector Sands Cant Stop LP

Inspector Sands reports to the operation room for a massive full LP of UK/Breakbeat Hardcore that puts the entire Hardcore scene on notice. In short, you need this album!

Starting with the euphoric piano rush of ‘Motivader’ that takes in some lively guitar riffs we continue to the epic Jungle influenced ‘Superfly’, a track with a HUGE  hook which switches midway into stomping 4×4 kicks before some big ravey riffs and euphoric piano towards the end.

‘Feel The Heat’ rekindles the 90’s hardcore sound with some added house music elements. ‘What A Rush’ continues the theme of spine-tingling pianos with some phat n chunky breaks and a rip-roaring bassline.

‘Can’t Stop’ is a unique blend of 90’s 4 Beat Hardcore style riffs with the ‘firestarter’ break and Si Genaro’s Bowie esque vocals. ‘I Call Your Name’ takes us back to the days of Billy Bunter & JDS with rolling breakbeats and some great vocals supplied by Charley.

‘Rippin’ Up Showz’ is a tough 92 influenced banger that pays homage to the likes of Seduction & Sy & Unknown. ‘Lay My Beatz’ brings together the oldskool jungle sound with today’s breakbeat hardcore style and sounds awesomely fun.

Chris Ross, Luna C & Fracus & Darwin all contribute quality remixes to the album. Also featured is my favourite track on the album ‘Dance 2016′, a glorious ode to the year of 1992. For more goosebumps check out another bonus LP track ‘Did I Dream’, a modern take on ‘Temple Of Dreams’ but so much more. We finish this wonderful album with exclusive bonus track ‘Hard Daze’ which also evokes the very best of what we lovingly refer to as ‘oldskool’.

If you love rushy uplifting Breakbeat Hardcore and appreciate outstanding musical production then be sure to grab either a CD or digital copy of this excellent LP.
