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]”

You can buy this LP from Bandcamp or download and stream from the Soundcloud playlist below.

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.

Time Travel-Moving Points LP (Jungle)

Time Travel-Moving Points LP (Jungle)

 

Melbourne Jungle DJ & producer Time Travel debuts on Ruff Guidance with a full LP of those finely crafted beats that made him a stalwart to labels such as Boomsha Recordings and his own Rising Lantern imprint. A pioneer of the slower paced 140-150BPM Future Jungle sound and a master of spatial multi layered deep bass n breaks, Time Travel invites you on an expedition into his very own skilfully crafted Jungle…

Firstly we enter Time Travels’ Jungle by means of the intro track ‘Control’ full of rich late night/early morning moods and melody. Following the intro is ‘Demonstrated Force’ full of tribal drums, filtered amen breaks and a pounding forceful sound. ‘The System’ takes us deep into the darkest realms of this Jungle with 90’s Techstep like eerie chords, metallic beats and angry buzzing 808s.

Tracks like ‘Levitate’ & ‘Man And Machine’ keep with the intricate darkness and scientific breakology. We get an interlude of sorts with the dubby off kilter ‘Enter Dub’ before some stripped to the bone bass heavy atmospheric intensity in ‘Lost In Space’

The last 3 tracks on the LP ‘Balance’, ‘Break In The Rain’ and ‘Absent Two’ channel some of the mid 90s Moving Shadow era mystical magic, it’s all about the haunting sweeps of ethereal sound floating around the edges of low end sub thump and slickly constructed breakbeats.

‘Moving Points ‘ offers a glimpse into the mind of a true junglist, someone who understands the very essence of the sound. Time Travel has put together some of his best work here. All that’s left to do is press play, indulge your ears and marvel at his sound!!!

Time Travel ‘Moving Points LP’ will be available to purchase and download from 19/08/16

Jungle Drone – Encodings EP (Jungle)

Jungle Drone - Encodings EP (Jungle)

Prepare to be fully immersed into a world of dark trippy late night Jungle. Australian junglist producer par excellence Jungle Drone shares the first of a series of EPs for Boomsha Recordings and he starts with a Tiger’s roar of a  3 track release!!

‘Shuffle Crew’ appears in two versions, the original and alternative version both featuring a prominent jagged riff that floats over a sea of disturbed ambience, rolling beats and techstep esque subs.

‘Vanilla Plate’ sounds like David Lynch making Jungle/DnB with dreamy off kilter beach music style guitar riffs pitched against classic amen breakology.

‘Branch Point’ is the one for the Future Jungle crew and for those in the know will be instantly recognisable as the signature sound of Jungle Drone under his Mshcode alias.

Deep, dubby and trippy, there’s no sound quite like the sound of Jungle Drone and this is a great EP,go get it!!!
