[SSV5] D.J. Wax - Spandangle Selection Volume 5 [4-Track Rare & Unreleased Jungle 12" Vinyl EP Available To Purchase Now!!!]

A1 - Morning Drums (Dubplate Mix).
A2 - Ohh Oh.
B1 - Moments So Dark (Remix).
B2 - PD-21.

After the resounding success of the previous Bay B Kane release, Spandangle Selection are back once more with yet another collection of rare and unreleased oldskool hardcore and jungle gems on vinyl only. This time featuring four rare and unreleased tracks from D.J. Wax, who earned a place in jungle history with 1993's legendary 'Moments So Dark'.

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!

The D.J. Wax 'Spandangle Selection Volume 5' EP is available to purchase now from the official Spandangle Selection webstore for £9.99 plus postage & packaging.

[INVSN019] Grinder - Fake Fear EP [Available Now From All Good Invasion Recordings Digital Stockists!!!]

1/ Fake Fear.
2/ Lost Echo.
3/ Blur.
4/ Silence.

Invasion Recordings return to spread their trademark, pitch black neurofunk sound with the release of 'The Fake Fear EP' by St. Petersburg based D&B producer Grinder

We are first launched into the darkness with title track. 'Fake Fear', which layers atmospheric horror/sc-fi samples over thundering 2-step breaks and rasping bass heavy growl. The tension is further increased by scuttling, sound FX which emulate the aural sensation of cybernetic spiders crawling up your spine.

The tech-step onslaught continues with the darkly atmospheric 'Lost Echo', which expertly combines ominous, atmospheric pads set to a steppin' drum pattern and a deep, cavernous bassline that's guaranteed to get your subs rattling.

Opening up the second half we have the unnervingly sinister 'Blur', a track which instantly evokes a sense of dread by layering industrial synth riffs over a relentless drumbeat, locking the listener into punishing, yet perversely irresistible groove. 

Drawing the quartet to a perfect close, 'Silence' rewinds us back to the late nineties, when the likes of of RAM Records, Renegade Hardware and Virus Recordings ruled the airwaves with monstrous bass pulses locked in eternal conflict with twisted, technoid mid-range riffs. 

If you consider yourself a serious neurofunk connoisseur, then the 'Fake Fear EP' will be a must to have in your collection!!!

Grinder's 'Fake Fear EP' is available to download now from the official Invasion Recordings Bandcamp store...

...And from all good digital stockists and streaming sites...
