[TUNZ003] Elementz Of Noize - Infinite Leap - First [4-Track EP Available To Download Now From Tunnel Noize Recordings!!!]

1/ In Aether.
2/ Dust Or Rust.
3/ Quasar.
4/ Someday We'll Make It Back.

Ever since Elementz Of Noize's conception way back in 1994 as production duo Alan Clark and John Maughan (on the Labello Blanco 'Dig The New Breed Volume One' EP jungle historians!). The name has always held a firm fixture throughout the long and varied history jungle and drum & bass. With appearances on many ground breaking labels throughout the yeas, including S.O.U.R., Emotiv Smokers Inc., Fuze Recordings and more recently, Lossless Music's Exkursions imprint  and self released label Tunnel Noize Recordings as Alan Clark carrying on the the moniker as a solo artist. November 30th saw Elementz Of Noize continue on with his continuing mission to deliver forward thinking drum & bass well into the present day with the release of the 'Infinite Leap - First' EP.

We are first greeted with 'In Aether' which lures the listener in with a series of chiming, synth flourishes before unveiling a rolling, live percussion sounding breakbeat paired with powerful 808 bass throbs and soaring pads. 'In Aether' seems to effortlessly weave together a luscious combination of 'live' and organic elements which are contrasted by digital samples in the latter half (the infamous "Compton" amen for example). Which in turn creates a devastatingly effective collision of rough and smooth elements that equally satisfy the mind and desire to move your feet. 

'Dust Or Rust' flips the script by layering  frenetic, skipping beats and gentle bass notes over a gorgeously warm, reversed synth pattern and evocative piano melody that balances on the knife-edge between nostalgic fondness and melancholia. The feelings of sentimentality are further enhanced by the use of washes of dusty, vinyl crackles. If you can imagine vintage Boards Of Canada set to a D&B tempo, then you wont be far off .

Up next, 'Quasar' follows a similar 'ambient electronica' path as it's predecessor whilst dialling down the tempo a few notches, with it's heady blend of tropical themes. Imagine fluttering synths, bird call effects, tribal, bass-drum thuds, luscious female vocal refrains. You could easily find 'Quasar' becoming the soundtrack to someone's a spiritual trip to some far off, exotic land. A perfect accompaniment for finding oneself.

With closing track, 'Someday We'll Make It Back' we are once again taken back to the realms of epic drum & bass, by the means of a powerfully emotive and epic, string driven intro geared to tug at your heartstrings. Elementz Of Noize then delivers a payload of rolling breakbeats on the drop, which adds a welcome touch of intensity before winding things to a close

If your appreciation for electronic music encompasses soothing I.D.M. mixed in with deep and atmospheric, drum & bass, then the 'Infinite Leap - First' EP will soon become essential listening for your audio sensibilities. Highly recommended!!!

The Elementz Of Noize 'Infinite Leap - First' EP is available to download now from the offical Elementz Of Noize Bandcamp store for £3 (or more if you wish to support the artist further!).

[BF327] LIQUID vs AK1200 - The Rave Revival Vol.1 [BROOKLYN FIRE RECORDS]

01. The Light
02. The Dark

Brooklyn Fire Records go ahead to their 400th release providing tons of energy and quality modern vibes for the dancefloor and your pleasure. Till then, there is a seriously remarkable collaboration right in here with two Rave dons, one's based in UK and the other in US.
Namely it's all about the very prolific over the last 2 years, Eamon Downes from Liquid and the almighty and one of the longest Drum & Bass runners, AK1200 from US.

Liquid, well known off the '92 chart topper "Sweet Harmony" has returned stronger than ever with a second personal album released last year, entitled "Energy Flows" as well as various stuff coming out on Kniteforce Records & Music Mondays.
Currently living in Rome but his blood is still pumping with the infamous UK rave revival spirit, thus allowed him making this fresh collaboration with OrlanDON AK1200, offering two fresh gems on a digital release called "The Rave Revival Vol.1".

BigRiddim Recordings head honcho, AK1200 skips a little bit of his D&B roots and delivers something very nostalgic ('The Dark') & uplifting ('The Light') alongside Liquid on two Rave Breaks similar tunes that differ only to the emotions they can give you while listening to them.

"The Rave Revival Vol.1" is out now. A DJ friendly weapon of a good set, a highly recommended release for your digital collection, moreover when being fan of those two iconic heads & this great label run by Tommie Sunshine.





[OMN152] Earthworm Jim + Spongebob Squarewave - Moonshine E.P. [OFF ME NUT]

01. The Condition
02. Run Away
03. So Hard
04. Nothin Can't Stop Us
05. Somebody

Sheffield's manic act of Spongebob Squarewave returns to his Off Me Nut base to deliver an extreme collaboration with Earthworm Jim and a super work of 5 stomping stormers all packed digitally & entiled "Moonshine E.P.". It's a modern approach of Happy Hardcore mixed up with bassline mode with wisse sick sampling and a banging result in full effect!
Highly recommended for all the rave up crew. Hands up to the "Moonshine E.P." and to Off Me Nut party crew. An ideal 5track weapon for every DJ who want to get it over 170 bpm of sweat!



[DCLS002] DJ Style 90.6 - Dark Power / Trans-Elevation [12" Vinyl Single Available To Download Now From Hardcore Vinylist Records!!!]

A - Dark Power.
B - Trans-Elevation.

Following through after the success of the 'Alirght / Satisfied' 12", DJ Style 90.6 and Hardcore Vinylist Records makes a welcome return and brings with him yet another vinyl exclusive slice of contemporary junglism, with the 'Dark Power / Trans-Elevation' single ready to set your SL1210's on fire.

The collection kicks off with the deep, dark and atmospheric 'Dark Power', which deftly combines luscious pads with thundering bass pulses, rolling Amens and Soul Pride breaks and ominous movie dialogue snippets which sets a perfect tone of unease before destroying the listener with a devastating, stab fuelled drop.

On the flipside we are presented with an adrenaline soaked piece of jungle-tekno with 'Trans-Elevation', a potent blend of relentless kick-drums layered over crisp breaks and an uplifting synth riff, flavoured with swirling mentasms and ragga sound-clash vocals which perfectly captures that pivotal point when jungle, techno and hardcore merged together late 1993-1994. 

Whether your rave flavours veer towards the dark or lighter side of hadcore, the 'Dark Power / Trans-Elevation' single has all bases covered. This one is  recommended for all fans of Dark Horse Records, Tango, Pascal & Sponge and Unatural Light!!!

The DJ Style 90.6, 'Dark Power / Trans-Elevation' 12" vinyl single is available to purchase now for £9.99 (plus P&P) from the official Hardcore Vinylist Records Bandcamp store, and is vinyl only. So if you wish to own a copy you better move fast as limited copies are available!!!

[4TCR-EP02] Beeno, Stammers, Thibor - 3 Peas In A Pod [4-Track EP Available To Download Now From 4 The Core Recordings!!!]

1/ Beeno - Trip Dem.
2/ Beeno - The Ghostbuster.
3/ Beeno & Khyzer Zuke (Stammers) - In Heaven.
4/ Beeno & Thibor - Thanks.

Hot off the heels of the slammin' DJ Revive EP, 4 The Core Recordings are back with another quartet of breakbeat hardcore belters to set the rave alight, with the release of the '3 Peas In A Pod EP' from Kniteforce Radio regular DJ Beeno, alongside fellow K.F.R. cohorts Khyzer Zuke (aka Stammers) and Thibor

The man like Beeno opens up the collection with the tearing 'Trip Dem', a contemporary update on that 1992 breakbeat hardcore template which combines 180 mph, D&B amens with hardcore sampleadelica with nuff pilfering from the likes of classic house diva vocals right through to Ennio Morricone's iconic 'Chi Mai' melody.

Beeno follows up with a madcap, four-to-the-floor hardcore mashup of classic '80's paranormal comedy movie clips and uplifting, Jackie Wilson samples with... 'The Ghostbuster', which comes jam-packed with contrasting happy and dark jungle-tekno elements to catch out the unwary raver.

'In Heaven' sees Beeno join forces with Khyzer Zuke for a thundering slice of 1992-style breakbeat mentalism, complete with chunky beats, booming bass notes and a plethora of exhilarating stabs and rave riffs, as well as expertly implemented borrowings from vintage child safety ads and 'Everything Is Fine' vox from 'Dr Adamski's Muscal Pharmacy' LP.

Rounding up the collection we have Beeno & Thibor's 'Thanks', which takes us on a fill-on hardcore/('90's) jump-up jungle assault, where rolling amens do battle with thundering kickdrums, monstrous bass 'whoomps', ragga chatter and Dido (!?). Which despite sounding nigh on impossible to gel together effectively, it works a treat!

The 4 The Core Recording camp comes up with yet another inspired selection of genre-defying tracks from breakbeat hardcore's up and coming elite. If you seek the very best in boundary pushing hardcore, then you need this in your collection!!! 

The Beeno, Stammers, Thibor '3 Peas In A Pod' EP is available to purchase now from the official 4 The Core Recordings Bandcamp page for £6 in high quality digital format (320 MP3, WAV, FLAC, etc).

[SFR007] Redshift & DJ Problem Child - Stepping Stones / Hegemon [Limited Edition 12" Vinyl & Digital Pre-Orders Available Now!!!]

A - Stepping Stones (featuring Man Parris).
B - Hegemon.

Silent Force Recordings welcomes Redshift and Problem Child to the fold with the release of the 'Stepping Stones / Hegemon', 12" vinyl and digital single. Ushering in a new era of dark mid-nineties themed, tech-step drum & bass. It's time to batten down the hatches, as we prepare for a full-on audio assault...

We are first introduced to the moody, sci-fi futurism of 'Stepping Stones' which drops crisp, 2-step breaks over thunderous bass notes, ominous industrial drones and subsonic rave stabs, complimented by legendary MC, Man Parris on vocal duties. 'Stepping Stones' instantly brings to mind the very essence of those infamous Blue Note Sessions by delivering no-nonsense, headstrong drum & bass.

Flipping things over we are once more plunged into the darkness with the pitch black  'Hegemon', a track which unleashes desolate atmospheric tones set to a punishing, layered amen break, rib-cage shaking, 808 bass booms and eerie movie dialogue snippets. If your D&B appreciation falls within the realms of Renegade Hardware/Dylan/Droppin' Science/Twisted Anger, circa 1996, then 'Hegemon' will tick all your boxes.

With this heavyweight slab of wax, Redshift & Problem Child present an essential selection of tech-step cuts for  anyone who considers themselves a lover of headstrong, drum & bass. 

The Redshift & DJ Problem Child 'Stepping Stones / Hegemon' 12" vinyl is available to pre-rder now from the Silent Force Recordings Bandcamp page for £9.99 plus postage & packaging.

We are first presented with the exquisite 'Morning Drums (Dubplate Mix)', a lush piece of atmospheric jungle which was only ever made available on dubplate to a very select number of DJ's back in the day, and delivers frenetic drum-programming layered over luscious pads.
Up next we have 'Ohh Oh', also from D.J. Wax's unreleased D.A.T. collection, a string driven slice of uplifting jungle comprised of rolling breaks, booming, descending bass patterns and ecstatic female vocals to get all hands in the air.

The flipside offers up an undisputed and remastered oldskool anthem in the form of the 'Moments So Dark (Remix)', which was played out by many a rave heavyweight back in the day. Adding even more elements from the Art Of Noise classic to create an intoxicating, rush inducing, hardcore jungle classic. 
Rounding off the collection we have 'PD-21', which also appears courtesy from D.J. Wax's very own personal dubplate archives, and features soaring strings layered over thundering breaks and a bouncing, 808 bassline.

With the D.J. Wax 'Spandangle Selection Volume 5' 12" vinyl, the label has once more excelled itself in unearthing and remastering some lost jungle gems, so make sure you grab yourself a piece of rare and unreleased jungle history before they disappear!
