1026209_10201627077977548_974497608_o

 

Its round up time again and we have some great tracks to showcase here, Addictive Behaviour have a new EP out from L 33 & Detail, the aptly named ‘Godzilla’ by Detail really is a beast of a track, energetic and furious Neurofunk that rips through the cranium with a marauding bassline that sems to represent the movie monster the track is named after!!!! L 33′s ‘Bring Down’ is dark and deep with nice bleepy pads and Hip Hop style vox, 2 tracks to get the crowd going ape!!!!

Virus Syndicate’s new EP features colaborations with various artists including a great half step DnB colab with Maztek, everything from Grime to Trap through to DnB with trademark hard hitting bars from Virus Syndicate

In the run up to a great forthcoming LP of stunning colabs, we get the 2nd in the series of MC Fats Collective EPs ‘We Gotcha Vol 2′, sheer quality is an understatement, its clear the artists involved have pulled out all the stops for an exceptionally good remix package, just wait until you hear the album!!!! Kudos to Mackadena, S.P.Y, A Sides & TC for a set of tracks featuring the vocal talents of the legendary Jungle/DnB MC that will simply blow your mind!!!

Classic 90s Jungle/DnB Joker Records is having its back cat remastered and made available for digital download for the first time ever  courtesy of Asbo Audio, the label was set up by bona fide legends Bizzy B & Pugwash to put out big dancefloor anthems and that they did, there are countless gems from this label all of which you can now buy via the Asbo website, theres some free downloads too like this one below, follow the link to download and check out the growing re issued back cat whilst you’re there

The prolific hardcore breaks don, Paul Cronin has just dropped this fresh freebie, pure old skool vibes to get you rockin!!!!

He also has a brand new EP out too, 4 tracks of full on ‘ardcore mayhem proving once again you can’t keep this sound down, hardcore will never die!!!

Slowing things down a bit, we have Taiki Nulight’s bass reworking of the hugely popular Major Lazer tune, plenty of chopped up breaks on this badboy, pretty damn sick!!!!

Darkhalf lays down some deep, mellow 140 beats to soothe your mind, a great taster for his forthcoming EPs on Music Of Life & Stay On Target Records, this is going to go down really well among the 140 Jungle heads and rightly so, this writer hasn’t stopped listening to it since he first heard it!!!!

Bay B Kane’s classic ‘Code K’ LP is getting a reissue soon and in preparation, we get the great 2012 VIP of 92 dark jungle classic ‘Hello Darkness’ for free download, rolling breaks like only Bay B Kane does!!!

From a legend to a talented new producer known as Alex Breako from Greece, ‘Deep Love Pt 2′ is out now on Kode 5 Recordings and is a modern classic in this writer’s opinion, fantastic break edits, a classic 94 Formation/Bassment Recs feel, sweet soaring pads that give away for darker stabs midway building back into a perfect crescendo, this will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, its that good!!!

And to finish this round up, a great freebie from The Monaco Cruisers that kicks off with lovely layered breaks before kicking into some nice melodic piano and a dreamy drop with vocals from Just Jack, very mid 90s feel to this one, a must have tune!!!!

 

 

 

Bass, 140 & DnB Round Up 11.4.14

1026209_10201627077977548_974497608_o

 

Brace yourselves for a BIG round up of tunage!!!!, From Canada, we have Pinto with a new EP of Chicago/Detroit influenced DnB beats, a great blend of modern bass sounds, title track ‘One Vibe’ is a buzzing energetic track with lazer like bass while ‘East Row’ is a slick slice of half step DnB, go get this!!!!

Next up, we have a new release on the legendary Renegade Hardware imprint from Chroma, 2 grizzling beasties known as ‘Territories’ & ‘Brain Strain’, these Geordie lads know how to make some pretty menacing DnB, hints of Dom & Roland can be heard, the production is ultra slick too, this is pretty damn BIG!!!

Boomsha Recording’s latest release sees the return of Visible Sound with some finely crafted 140/Future Jungle beats, weighing in with a whopping 6 tracks that vary from lush deep jungle riddims to some dark bass heavy tearout, this writer can’t get enough of just how good this is

Radio 1 don Crissy cris has a thundering 2 tracker out on Technique Recordings ‘The Trinity EP’, 2 absolutely slamming DnB toons with a filthy dubstep remix to boot from alter ego, Dead Exit, favourite for this writer is the epic ‘Rinsin’ Selection’ BOOOOM!!!!

https://technique.databeats.com/download/tech102

For the next release on Sub Slayers, something pretty special from King Yoof Ft Rony Blue & Mr Williamz, this is an absolute anthem, 140/Future Jungle at its very finest, King Yoof’s next level production, Rony Blue’s sweet vocals which remind me of Lindy Layton (remember her?), some sick toasting from Mr Williamz, this is as good as it gets, the boys at Slayers have thrown down the gauntlet and set a mighty challenge, this writer is completely genuinely enamored by this classy piece of music, hear it for yourself, don’t take my word for it, you’ll hear just how good it is for yourself and you wil be reaching for your wallet, trust me!!!!

Along with the original, we also get a great package of remixes from House to DnB to Dancehall Reggae from Oscar Luweez, Capitol 1212, Toronto Is Broken, Gold Dubs & King Yoof himself, all first class but the original is just the one!!!!

One of the original and earliest artists to feature on Sub Slayers, the Schema boys are back and along with them, quite a few other label stalwarts plus the addition of the awesome Atomic Drop!!! ‘Fumin’ featuring the vocals of Chesire Cat is a sleek fusion of trap/midtempo bass style sounds with half step DnB, things get epic for Toronto Is Broken’s remix who ups the ante for some firing DnB, Gella up next, another artist to have featured very early on  Slayers’ back cat delivers some steppin’ NuJungle vibes, Jinx In Dub goes in with a roots reggae junglistic relick and to complete a very fine package, Atomic Drop makes their debut here with a beast of a remix that proves unequivocally that theres plenty of life left in dubstep, phat beats and old skool rave sounds abound, my personal fave of all the mixes too, a seriously strong release from the label that never fails to deliver…
