[VMRDT042] Inphekt & Dr V - Tantibus EP [Available From All Viral-Mental Records Digital Stockists Now!!!]

1/ Inphekt - Panic.
2/ Inphekt - Talk To Walls (Part 1).
3/ Inphekt - Ancherontia.
4/ Inphekt & Dr V - Night Owl.
5/ Inphekt & Dr V - Black Mass.
6/ Inphekt - Method Of Violence.
7/ Inphekt - Haures.

Things are getting deep, dark and dystopian over at Viral-Mental Records, with the release of the brand new 7-track epic from Inphekt and Dr V, the 'Tantibus EP'.

From the oppressive, industrial tones of opening track 'Panic' to the frantically paced, amen backed closing piece 'Haures'. The 'Tantibus EP' draws parallels to the classic late '90's breed of sci-fi themed, futuristic drum & bass pioneered by the likes of Ram Trilogy, Bad Company,  and Ed Rush & Optical whilst adding a a touch of modern griminess to the proceedings.

The relentless 2-step break driven 'Talk To Walls (Part 1)' introduces a blend of discordant sounds and deep and menacing atmospherics coupled with mutating bass growls, as does it's equally sinister successor, 'Ancherontia'. For 'Night Owl' and 'Black Mass', Iphekt teams up with Dr V to deliver two clinical steppers which conjure up images of cybernetic armies on the march. The deeply ominous bass drones and pads of 'Method Of Violence' sets the dark-step ambiance perfectly by combining those elements with intricately programmed and metallic percussion to create a solid piece of heavyweight sound business.

To conclude, Inphekt inconjunction with Dr V provide the perfect selection of tracks to soundtrack the darkest of Drum & Bass sets. Guaranteed to scare off any Pop D&B fans 100%!!!

The Inphekt & Dr V 'Tantibus EP' is available to purchase now from the following Viral-Mental Records digital stockists...

1/ DJ Hybrid - Dubplate Sound.
2/ DJ Monk - Gotta Rock.
3/ DJ J.T.M - Squeeze.

The legendary jungle veteran, DJ Monk presents the Strictly NuSkool Blog with an exclusive promo of the forthcoming KLP Records release, 'The Sound System Culture EP'. Featuring a trio of heavyweight, junglist anthems from DJ Hybrid, DJ J.T.M and KLP head honcho, the DJ Monk himself.

The 'Sound System Culture EP' opens in a stepping fashion with DJ Hybrid, who brings out the 'Dubplate Sound' with reggae trumpet flares accompanying Reese bass drones, militant 2-step breaks,  and a ragga vocal that will soon become the next junglist 'call to arms' shout out!

DJ Monk then follows up next with 'Gotta' Rock', which fuses together menacing bass growls over a hypnotically moody bassline, all set to a massive rolling breakbeat. 'Gotta Rock' is further accentuated by hip-hop samplage and ragga chatting ordering the listener to 'rock', 'twist' and 'listen to 'dis', as if they would need any encouragement to! 

The DJ J.T.M rounds off this jungle triptych with a head-nodding, reggae vibed number entitled 'Squeeze', packed full of rude-boy bass, air horns, solid breaks and inspirational speech from the legendary reggae/dancehall ambassador, David Rodigan. 

The 'Sound System Culture EP' will be available from all KLP Records digital stockists from 23/05/15. Be sure to follow the links provided below to keep up to date with previous and future DJ Monk/KLP releases...

[DA004] Hornchurch Hardcore - Hornchurch Hardcore Vol 1 [4-Track "12 Vinyl + Digital EP - Available Now From Dark Age Recordings!!!]

A1 - Crossworlds.
A2 - Crystal Skies.
AA1 - Immortal.
AA2 - Supernatural.

Dark Age Recordings go back to the future-past of late 1993-1994, when the jungle and hardcore scenes where in their last throws of separation before evolving into two vastly opposing forces in their own rights. With the 'Hornchurch Hardcore Vol 1' EP we are presented with four authentically vintage sounding recreations of that 'Golden Era' in the history of Hardcore, Jungle and Drum & Bass.

'Crossworlds' opens up the EP with a fusion of evocative, descending pads and female sighs which are then coupled with an energising synth melody, before unleashing a barrage of fierce and heavyweight amen breaks and booming bass thumps. 'Crystal Skies' follows suit with it's fusion of gorgeously uplifting atmospherics, classic female vocal melodies and a percussive build up from stepping 'Seseme Street' breaks to intense, rolling amens. 'Crystal Skies' brings forth memories of classic Nookie/Cloud 9 from years, gone by whilst maintaining it's own identity.

On the flipside things begin to get a little darker! 'Immortal' ventures deep into atmospheric, jungle-tekno territory by utilising vintage breakbeats and setting them to an energising techno-synth melody and moody pads.The 'Hornchurch Hardcore Vol 1' EP is bookended by the equally sinister 'Supernatural', which expertly employs darkcore percussive effects alongside razor-sharp, mentasm screeches, mammoth bass throbs and paranormal documentary snippets.

If the early works of Photek, DJ Rap & Voyager, Nookie/Cloud 9 and DJ Crystl are your bag, then I'd be very surprised if you failed to find anything which does not get your heart beating in this EP. An essential release!!!

The 'Hornchurch Hardcore Vol 1' EP is available to purchase now from the Dark Age Recordings Bandcamp page in both digital and limited 12" vinyl formats (both priced at £6, with additional postage and packaging for the 12" vinyl). So be quick to pick up a copy as the vinyl is already selling fast!!!
