[TCPL01] Tim Reaper & Coco Bryce - Tim & Coco's Pack Of Lies [12" Limited EP @ MYOR MASSIV]

01. Dreamscape (Pleasuredome)
02. Dreamscape (Thunderdome)
03. E Is For
04. E Is For (Sonar's Ghost Remix)

Breda meets London or UK meets Netherlands on the very fresh release by two prolific Junglists like Coco Bryce & Tim Reaper. If you follow the scene and missing these two golden names then something's going wrong. Two of the most productive, hard working and good guys within the scene, collab for the very first time to bring on a very attractive 12" landing like Oldschool inspired but keeping a Hardcore & Jungle identity.

'E Is For' is one of the biggest tunes of the year due to our preferences and 'Pack Of Lies' 12" EP (the name of this brand new release) won't lie to you at all. It's time to get the unexpected; advocates would rather say a quite different approach of Jungle.
All in all anything coming out from these two as well as Myor Massiv is a sure success, and a matter of time getting sold out due to the major support and upgrading over the years.
"Tim & Coco's Pack Of Lies" is out on on vinyl & digital format.

[KF85] Luna-C & Lowercase - Heavy Beats EP [12" EP out on KNITEFORCE RECORDS]

01. Bad Enough
02. Atomik
03. Dumpling Business 
04. Get Away

First ever Kniteforce 'Double L' EP or we'd rather say 'L2' or '2L' is available now and everyone around Kniteforce is extremely delighted about that.
First of all the head honcho of the KF movement, the man like Luna-C, secondly Lowercase as the second essential L and all the rest like fans and all involved inside this legendary 26 yr old label.
'Heavy Beats' is the name of the brand new 12" EP and it's an indisputably banging collaboration between Luna-C and Lowercase.
KF boss and KF Radio manager!

"Glyn Lowercase has dedication and enthusiasm in spades, and is both determined and humble. Its a good combination, and perfect for Kniteforce.

I first became aware of Glyn because he posted pics of his leg tattoos, which happen to be Kniteforce logos. So…thats dedication. More that I would ever ask for, and verging on the insane, sure, but still, you cant just scroll past someone who has put your record labels artwork into his skin. That person is dedicated and loves the label, so the least I could do was say “oi oi, nice one” and have a little chat. It turned out that he was only slightly mad, and he wasn’t full of himself, and he had a weekly radio show (this was before Kniteforce Radio). So I tuned in once, then again, until it became fairly regular, and I was pleasantly surprised to hear well mixed tunes, and an enthusiastic host who was obviously very into the music, and Kniteforce played its part in that as well."

In addition to Chris latest blog (read full of it here) the 'Heavy Beats' is a 4track slamming work of storming breakbeats, immense basslines and lush pianos all around blending 1991 with 1992 under modern flag. One way or another this release is a must to have mostly cos its one of the first collabs between Chris and Glyn, as we in the Strictly Nuskool expect more to come from them both.
Because they still feed their souls with Hardcore, and this turns to be larger day by day!!

[FDXBLKSR006] X-Nation - X-Nation EP [Foundation X 3-Track 12" Vinyl Available Now!!!]

A - Infinite Waters.
AA1 - 9 Digit Roots.
AA2 - Kiss My Neck.

The mighty Foundation X label has long been known for interweaving deep jungle dub aesthetics with cavernous basslines and heavyweight breakbeats, and it's latest 12" vinyl release, X-Nation's 'X-Nation EP' does not fail to deliver the goods on that front.

Dubwise, sound system vibes form the backbone of opening track 'Infinite Waters', which comes steeped in delayed FX, subsonic bass booms and filtered, rolling amen breaks accented with a smattering of trumpet blasts, evocative, reggae vocalisms and if I am right, a sneaky 'Star Trek' sound sample.

Paying homage to reggae icon Eek-A-Mouse's sing-song classic, 'Long Time Ago', '9 Digit Roots' hits you with rich tapestry of electrifying synth flourishes set to a skanking bassline and tearing Amen and Think break combo that'll get all heads nodding on the dancefloor.

Rounding off the selection we have 'Kiss My Neck' which delivers a potent blend of rapid-fire, layered 'Scottie' breaks, thundering 808 bass pulses and soulful Frankie Paul vocals combined with spine-tingling Richard D. James, arpeggiated synth riffs borrowed from a 1992, R&S classic.

The 'X-Nation EP' comes recommended to anyone who considers themselves a connoisseur of serious jungle with a focus on breakbeat manpulation and deep, bassline pressure. This one's strictly for the headz!!!

X-Nation's 'X-Nation EP' is available to buy for £9.99 (plus p&p) and is ready to ship now. So be quick before they fly out the door!!!

[INVSN018] Mayel - Apache Remixes [Available To Download Exclusively From Beatport Pro!!!]

1/ Apache (Alerstorm Remix).
2/ Apache (Maniatics Remix).

March's devastating 'Apache EP' by Mayel receives two storming makeovers from Spanish drum & bass Titans, Alerstorm and Maniatics for the brand new release from Invasion Recordings, the 'Apache Remixes' single.

Looming over the horizon first we have the 'Apache (Alerstorm Remix)', a deep and deadly slice of razor-sharp, sc-fi style neurofunk, backed by crisp, 2-step breaks and pumping bass pulses. Conjuring up images of some kind of sleek, yet lethal Japanime mecha laying down laser-fire over a war-torn, future battlefield.

Coming in for reinforcement, Maniatics delivers his industrial, tech-step reinterpretation of 'Apache', which immediately hits you full-on with a punishing series of ten-ton breaks before blindsiding you with a monstrous, twisting mid-range synth riff that'll get your neck-hairs standing to attention.

If you consider yourself as a purveyor of dark and heavy neuro D&B, then you need the 'Apache Remixes' in your collection!!!

Mayel's 'Apache Remixes' single is available to download now as a Beatport Pro Exclusive before going on general release. So get on it quick before everyone else does!!!

[PARA003] Total Dark - Tenement Yard Jungle / Jamaica [Parallax Recordings 12" Vinyl Pre-Orders Available Now!!!]

A1 - Tenement Yard Jungle.
A2 - Tenement Yard Jungle VIP.
AA1 - Jamaica.
AA2 - Jamaica VIP.

After Parallax Recordings' previous venture into rare 1992-1993 breakbeat hardcore with the excellent 'The Best Of Invention' double vinyl release, the label returns with even more oldskool gems, this time delving deep into the jungle vaults of 1994. Previously released on the legendary reggae label, Jet Star Records, and including two previously unreleased V.I.P. mixes. The Total Dark 'Tenement Yard Jungle / Jamaica' EP is going to be an insta-buy for any self-respecting junglist's vinyl collection.

First up we have 'Tenement Yard Jungle', a reggae tinged slice of tear-out jungle flavoured with rapidfire amen breaks and skanking bassline, paired with  the opening lines of Jacob Millar's reggae classic and silky smooth, soulful female R&B vocals lifted from Total and Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Can't You See'. The 'VIP Mix' offers up a more rolling take on the original version to provide an alternative for all the selectors out there.

On the flipside 'Jamaica' provides us with an insane sample-fest of rolling, DJ Dextrous style amens, booming 'Sleng Teng' bass, 70's disco grooves and a plethora of Capleton, Buju Banton and 'Scarface' movie samples to add to the chaos. The 'Jamaica VIP Mix', comes in just as hectic as it's dancehall ragga infused forefather.

If you are looking for beautifully crafted, atmospheric rollers then you will be sorely disappointed with this release, however if your junglistic tastes veer towards the more bedroom produced, rugged and raw and sample heavy ragga belters from the Golden Era of jungle, then 'Tenement Yard Jungle / Jamaica' will be absolutely essential!!! 

The Total Dark 'Tenement Yard Jungle / Jamaica' EP is available to pre-order from Parallax Recordings for €14.99 (plus P&P) and is expected to ship in approximately 12 weeks. So be quick and reserve yourself a piece of jungle history!!!

[POW 006] Spaced - Deeper (Remastered) [RARE 1992 HARDCORE!!! Double Pack 12" Vinyl & Singles Available To Purchase Now!!!]

A - Deeper (Hardcore Remix Dub).
B - Deeper (Hardcore Remix).
C - Deeper (Mix 1).
D1 - Deeper (Mix 2).
D2 - Deeper (Mix 3).

The Peace On Wax label make their welcome return, and this time they take us back to the glory days of rave with a stellar selection of sought after 1992 breakbeat hardcore cuts with the Spaced 'Deeper' collection. Featuring all five mixes of the rare-as-hen's-teeth Incite Records, and white label anthem, lovingly remastered and pressed as a limited edition, double vinyl pack or as individual 12"s. This one is going to be a must for any collector of those elusive oldskool gems!!!

Kicking off with the thundering 'Deeper (Hardcore Remix Dub)', a heady fusion of hard-hitting 'Energizer 1' breaks and buzzing bassline for the headstrong ravers out there blended in with euphoric, uplifting pianos and ecstatic female vocals. The A-Side sets the tone of what's to come and easily underlines itself as being a pure dancefloor anthem. 
On the flip we are presented with the' Hardcore Remix)', which injects a dose of electrifying mentasm stabbage into the mix to add that extra layer of rave mania.

The second 'Deeper' plate offers the listener a trio of 120-130 bpm versions, that fit in perfectly with Euro-house or 1991 hardcore sets, albeit without eschewing those rave breaks. 'Mix 1' combines a thundering 'Music Takes You' breakbeat with a pounding Euro-hardcore, techno riff while 'Mix 2' expands on the previous theme, dropping a massive bleep melody into the mix. Lastly we have 'Mix 3' which brings the collection to a melodic close with it's more house 'n' breaks theme, adding lush pads to create a more "radio friendly" vibe, whilst still remaining underground.

To sum up, the Peace On Wax camp have once more come up trumps by unearthing the most under-the-radar, rave classics and lovingly restored them for future generations to enjoy. If you love your 1992 tune hard and heavy but with a huge helping of euphoria, then you need this in your collection!!!    

The Spaced 'Deeper' double vinyl collection is available exclusively from the official Peace On Wax webstore for £20 (plus p&p), and also as single 12"s at £10 (plus p&p) for those who are looking for individual tracks. But be quick, as only 101 copies of the double-pack are left!!!
