Sumer is here!!!!! Well, the clocks have gone forward anyway so what better time to curate a selection of Bass, 140 & DnB Bangers?
Kode 5 drop another huge on a King Kong kinda scale release with Prime Attack’s ‘The Feeling’, a little history on Prime Attack is appropriate here, if ‘where were you in 92′ applies to you (see what I did there?) then you may recall ‘How Many Ravers’ by Prime Attack
This writer remembers it from a compilation ‘Red Hot & White Labels Vol 2′ featuring a nice picture of a troll on the front, a compilation I bought at the tender age of 13yrs old……
So whats the connection you may ask? ‘The Feeling’ was the B Side to ‘How Many Ravers’ and can be found on the current release along with a brand new remix bringing it up to date for 2014, its worth having for both though as that 92 original will have tingles running down your spine even if you weren’t around back then!!!!
And now on to some dreamy string laden footwork jungle by the aptly named Beach Club on Dred Collective, pick up this lush string laden amen tastic EP for a quid from their bandcamp….
On the bass tip, Son Of Kick has a new release due out on the 28th April, 2014 on Midification Records, a truly different production which starts by slowly winding up the tempo of a nice grimey beat featuring Lady Leshurr’s bars and a nice Jazzy/Soulful drop completely off kilter with a sweet chorus from Paigey Cakey, has to be heard to be believed, all conventions are thrown off and it works so well, genre defining forward thinking bass music at its very finest
You can pre order ‘Hours’ by Son Of Kick Ft Lady Leshurr & Paigy Cakey from iTunes
One half of Shed Edz, James Breakthru has put together a remix of rave classic ‘Narra Mine’ b Genaside II in a 140/electro breaks crossover stylee which this writer is feeling, a great uptempo remix with plenty of squelchy bass…
Strange Rollers take it back to 1994 with a rinse out jungle reworking of Buju Banton’s ‘Operation Ardent’ for the brock out crew, horns and lighters at the ready!!!!
To round things up, we welcome back seminal 90′s imprint, Impact Records, founded by DJ Seduction, home to many a much loved rave anthem, 2 of which are brought up to date for 2014 by Stormski & DJ Nicky Allen….
