And so the bearded one returns for another round up of bass bangers to rattle out the remaining teeth you possess!!!!!
We begin with 2 new EPs on Stay On Target from Darkhalf & Stormski, ‘Music Of Life’ featuring The Demon Boyz & Daddy Freddy has been a mainstay of this writer’s radio shows for months and I can’t sing its praises enough, Darkhalf’s deep Detroit influenced take on the 140 sound fits perfectly with the Brit Hop vocals and really should be in the DJ box of any truly good Future Jungle DJ, its that good, believe me
On the Jungle/DnB tip, Stormski also teams up with Daddy Freddy & The Demon Boyz for 2 94 style rollers, big sirens, chopped up breaks, ragga sensibilities and bundles of energy, Stormski once again combines his amazing DJ abilities with great production and knowledge of what rocks a crowd, firing!!!!
Exit Point debuts on the mighty Kode 5 with a punchy slice 0f 140 Jungle, almost with a hint of Jump Up DnB/Ragga Jungle, kicks off with a lively opener and indeed rocks ya soul!!!!
Duckem & Cryogenics have a new release on Audio Theory, a 2 tracker of finely crafted DnB, ‘Nightshades’ takes it back to the mid/late 90s with a smooth Metalheadz inspired roller while ‘Unforgiven’ goes for the late night melodic approach, loaded with sweeping pads, nicely filtered breaks and heavy 808s lurking in the mix, essential DnB
Digital’s ‘Figjam EP’ is out now on both vinyl & digital format via Horizons Music, the title track is just mind blowingly good, a ‘Shadow Boxing’ for 2014, dark brutal stabs over a clicking and whirling amen break, ‘Waiting’ is futuristic funk taken to the next level & ‘Therapy’ is dubbed out brilliance
Lifestyle Recordings continue a fine 2014 with a first class EP from Jazzatron, 4 tracks that take in elements of the old and new in DnB, a fusion of sound that deserves to be called unique and progressive and projects a range of emotions, Jazzatron is another producer at the top of their game which is amply demonstrated here:
Now time for a few free downloads, starting with an amzing hybrid trap tune from Lumberjvck with some seriously twisted bass
Animal Music are on fine form with their free remix of The Killers ‘Mr Brightside’ half step DnB style
Ekstra Records continue with quality output with this excellent chill trap banger by On The Low
Lenkemz reworks Nativ-Shifty into a rabble rousing juke jungle track
This previously unreleased track by Von D is an incredible dubstep/breakbeat crossover with shades of techno and jungle
And for the real hardcore ravers, Pursuit takes it back to the old skool with ‘Pull Up’
Salarayman’s remix of Adam F’s ‘The Original Junglesound’ is just a beast of a tune, dance round like a looney material, just so infectious!!!
2Brainz deliver another masterpiece of classic amentalism in the shape of ‘Jungle Dreams’
Kinetic Eon serves up some deep, dark and mystical jazz infused vibes with ‘Sub Lounge’
6Blocc gives another classic the low down bass assault treatment, this time its La Roux ‘In For The Kill’
DJ Ziyad gives a heavy re working of one of the most popular old skool anthems ever and with a nice subtle touch, adds in a little more of that CeCe Rogers vocal and the pianos from ‘Someday’
Chump Change law down the 95 vibes in this dreamy slice of footwork, another one of Dred Collective’s great Thursday giveaway tracks
Strange Rollers celebrate 25000 downloads on soundcloud with a 3 track EP covering Future garage, Bass & 140 Jungle
And Tony Rocky Horror has a free 4 track EP of deep rolling 140 bass out via the Fat Kid On Fire soundcloud page thats just so good, it would be criminal not to feature it here
