[WJS 002] Fathom - Mindkiller / Quest [Available To Download From All Good Wicked Jungle Records Stockists 19/01/16]


1/ Mindkiller.
2/ Quest.

After the success recent of debut album 'Wicked Jungle Vol 1', the Wicked Jungle Records crew are back again with their latest release from Fathom who delivers two menacingly dark drum & bass tracks with the forthcoming 'Mindkiller / Quest' single.

From the opening bars of 'Mindkiller' it becomes clear that Fathom is destined to bring you a 2016 update of the classic strand of late nineties, pitch black techstep D&B with it's fusion of ominous synth notes, and 2-step breaks on the intro which soon mutates into a heavyweight rolling amen break assault complete with massive twisting Reese bassline. 
'Quest' treads a similar dark path as it's companion piece with it's fusion of ominous, sweeping synths and martial arts movie samples meshed with monolithic bass throbs, brain searing stabs and frantically layered breaks. 

If you have a love for the No U-Turn, Metalheadz, Renegade Hardware style of dark drum & bass prevalent from late '95-'97, then Fathom is guaranteed to deliver that gritty and grimey, Dystopian sci-fi sound. 

Fathom's 'Mindkiller / Quest' single will available to download and stream from all good digital download stores and streaming sites from 19/01/16.

[SNBEP017] Strictly Nuskool Blog pres. TEKSTEPPA ''Dreams of the Future EP''



First Strictly Nuskool Blog release for 2016 is out now featuring a new addition to SNB team, the man like TEKSTEPPA (a.k.a. Matt Wilkins) from UK.

'The Dreams of the Future EP' is a 4track personal expression of him including storming Jungle & Breakbeat vibes all around!
This release is available on free download and hopefully you'll dig it loud & proud as Teksteppa nails it like proper!

Here are some following words from Teksteppa about his personal release:

" The Dreams of the Future E.P.  is basically me paying my respects to the sounds of yesteryear. Being a listener/raver of old skool hardcore and jungle since around 1992, I wanted to recreate the vibes of those days and bring back the flavas.

At the time of producing the E.P. I was listening to alot of Jungle from around the 93-95 era and got heavily influcened by the deep subs and choppy amen breaks! I then stumbled across the classic jungle techno type track: ''Neuromancer - Pennywise'' on Symphony Sounds recordings, which inspired the title track. If it wasnt for those headonistic hazy days of rave I probably would'nt be producing / DJing alot of the stuff I do now, so it means alot to me personally.

The main aim of this E.P. was to produce some tracks which also sounded like they we're made on old equipment so lots of thought went into the processing of the beats/sounds and I tried to get it all sounding as analog as possible in a completely digital realm. I hope you all enjoy this E.P. and if it makes you think of those old skool days then thats cool, and if it makes you dance, then hey I take my hat of to you! "

[Good News Boppers] Beat Rapist - Regrind [Qrates 10" Vinyl Crowd-Funder Pre-Orders Available Now!!!]



A - Lost In Jungle (Regrind Mix).
B - Top Buzz (Regrind Mix).

The highly esteemed nuskool jungle label, Good News Boppers is back again after a short absence, and for their return they have something special lined up to welcome in 2016 with the introduction of it's very first venture into vinyl territory. And what better way to start off the label's debut vinyl release than to feature the very first ever Good News Boppers signing, the king of dark junglism himself, the Beat Rapist.

The 'Regrind' single features two classic Beat Rapist tracks from 2013's 'Dark Side EP' given a 2016, extended revamp and will lovingly pressed onto 10", dubplate style vinyl complete with full artwork sleeve. 

The menacingly tearing 'Lost In Jungle (Regrind Mix)' kicks off the 'Regrind' single with a huge nod towards mid-nineties, classical jungle style with it's fusion of intricately chopped and layered breakbeats, instantly recognisable hardcore/jungle ragga vocals and the use of an oppressively dark and all enveloping Reese bass.

On the flipside, we are dragged into the depths of an oldskool jungle rave, for an all out, amen break assault with the equally dark and moody 'Top Buzz (Regrind Mix)'. Featuring crowd cheers, vinyl spinbacks, air horns and MC shout-outs of "I wanna hear some really fuckin' loud noise!!!!", as the backdrop to a barrage of heavyweight drumwork and monstrous bass growls.

As with musical works by the Beat Rapist, the 'Regrind' single should come with a health warning stating, 'Not For The Faint Hearted'!!!

The limited to 100 copies only, Beat Rapist 'Regrind' 10" vinyl single is available to pre-order now for £10 (plus postage and packaging) via the Qrates crowd funding websiteThis release will only go ahead if all 100 copies are sold, so be sure to get your orders in now as copies are going to go fast!!! 

The release has also been mastered by veteran jungle producer and disc jockey, DJ Sappo of Advisory Studios fame, so top notch sound quality will be guaranteed.

Msymiakos - Jungle Warriors EP


Look what just swung in from the grapevine, 'any jungle in guy?' this is the Tarzan and Jane of jungle my friends!. Ok Human Traffic quotes aside, we have Msymiakos with his brand new EP 'Jungle Warriors' and as soon as you hear the first track you are transported into the world of ragga jungle at its best. Jungle Warriors the first track on the EP is the clincher and what grabs the listener straight in with its Jamaican rudeboi ya dun no riddims. The thing that jumps out at me is also the chunky breakbeats that chug along and give the already building vibe an extra edge and raw feeling, a tune well suited to the 1994 sound and wouldn't sound out of place if played in selected year set.

We move onto the last tune 'Guru Meditation' a calmer sound to the first track with a nice swirling pad to kick it off. Once again the tell tale jungle breakbeats kick in to give off that junglist vibe and sound, coupled with all this you will find more Jamaican ragga sounds which tie in together nicely with the overall flow of the track.

All in all you have a rough, raw and down right nasty set of tunes ready to be played out on big systems around the globe or just in your bedroom on a sunny day uplifting those senses and bringing a smile across your face, also perfect for them long and boring commutes into work. If your a junglist you will truly appreciate the sounds on this EP, if you are dipping your toe in for the first time with this style of music then I'd say this really is the best way to start off your listening habits and move in the direction of jungle music.

Give this a go! highly recommended, check out the links just below to see where you can purchase this stunning EP and follow Msymiakos on his music profiles.
