" Ole Dirty Drew, formally know as Dj Cueball is from Cleveland, Ohio. He began listening to jungle in 1994 and fell in love with the sounds of the labels No U Turn, Metalheadz, Suburban Bass, Quayside Recordings, and artists such as, Remarc, Bizzy B, Dj Ruffkutt, Photek, and, Dj Crystal.

As a Midwestern Junglist, he was really influenced by the dj's like, Phantom 45, Dieselboy, 3D, and Dj DB. In 1995 he was spinning jungle and by 96, he began playing weekly's in Kent, Akron, and Cleveland. In 97 he received his first residency in Athens, Ohio, playing weekly. Later that year, he hooked up with the Element Squad out of Cleveland and started playing all over the Midwest, in Detroit, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Grand Rapids. Being part of the Element Squad he played alongside some of the biggest Djs in the country. As the the music changed to Drum n Bass, he lost interest in the scene and walked away in 2001. In 2017 he began to play again and really got back into the roots of the sound ,strictly focusing on 93-95, style jungle. Drew is the Co-Founder of PPJ Recordings, an American Jungle label, pushing proper jungle to the masses. We have our first release coming out in March with the bad man Krave! 3 floor stomping bangers, representing the old sound. 002 Release is coming with 4 really, heavy bangers from Msymiakos.

1/ The Night Stalker.
2/ Exits Exist.

Coming in with some serial killa styles from the ghetto, Aseity puts on his black cap to drop two dark as night, industrial drum & bass cuts with the release of the 'The Night Stalker / Exits Exist' single on Wicked Jungle Records.

Stepping up to first base we have the menace dripping, dark drumfunk number, 'The Night Stalker', a track which expertly combines psycho-killer, movie dialogue over a razor-sharp, spliced breakbeat pattern and twisted bass riff, that perfectly captures the controlled chaos of mid-nineties tech-step labels like Position Chrome, and gives it a contemporary, 2019 update.

Partner-in-crime, 'Exits Exist' brings up the rear to deliver a a furry of intricate, stepping breaks set to ominous bass drones and mentasmic, stab swells which generate an overpowering miasma of oppression... just the way we like it!!!! This one's not for the lightweights out there!!! 

With this release, Wicked Jungle Records presents two uncompromising D&B tracks that will be guaranteed to become an essential addition to the collection of any lover of the darker side of drum & bass.

[WOC010] Conrad Subs - Back & Forth EP [Weapon Of Choice Recordings Digital Download Now Exclusively From Juno Download!!!]

1/ Back & Forth.
2/ Response.
3/ Double Time.
4/ Ultimate.

"Pssst... You looking for some dirty, upfront drum & bass to sauce up your set?" Breaks and bassline filth merchants, Weapon Of Choice Recordings presents four brand new, future floorfillers with the release of Conrad Subs' 'Back & Forth EP'.  

Things get off to a hard and heavy start with moody title track, 'Back & Forth', which drops a succession of relentless 2-step breaks over a pulsating bassline, female vocal repetitions and razor-sharp, mid-range synth stabs. All the ingredients to make a surefire D&B anthem in the making. 
'Response' up next lures the listener into a false sense of security with it's use of ethereal, sci-fi pads on the intro, before unleashing a devastatingly hypnotic, industrial, bass drone and kick-snare combo.

Kicking off the second half we have the sinister rap meets neurofunk number 'Double Time' which delivers a heady blend of menacing, subsonic snarls interwoven into a precision crafted drum pattern, with added amen inserts and choice vocal snippets. 
Leading the EP to a rousing finish, Conrad drops an absolute bomb with 'Ultimate', which eschews the previous darker tingle of it's predecessors to create a real, hip-hop flavoured, bassline roller that is guaranteed to get all ravers on the floor whenever it's dropped. 

Whether you're seeking some deep and dark tech-step or an unashamed, upfront drum & bass banger to rattle your bassbins, Conrad Subs has got all bases covered with his latest release!!!

The Breakbeatscientist's top pick of the bunch... the sleek and sinister 'Response'.

Conrad Subs' 'Back & Forth EP' is available to download exclusively from Juno Download now, before going on general release, so if you're looking for some fresh D&B fire for your sets, you better jump on this now!!!
