[TDDR056] SwankOut - Get Dark EP [Available To Download Now From All Top Drawer Digital Stockists!!!]



1/ Feelin' Ghetto.
2/ Get Moody.
3/ Listen Bass.
4/ Mobeus.
5/ Ultimate Bad Boy.

Taking a departure from the usual jungle and drum & bass that I tend to review, it's time for some soulful, bassline house and low down and dirty breaks from Top Drawer Digital's SwankOut, who presents his brand new five track strong 'Get Dark EP.

Opening to the smooth introduction of 'Feelin' Ghetto', which drops a series of sophisticated synth stabs and pounding four-to-the-floor house beats, before laying down massive, rubber-band bass throbs and euphoric, high-pitched diva vocals. 
Things get a little bit more serious on the dark breaks and bass driven 'Get Moody', where intricately programmed  breakbeats do battle with a low, growling bassline and a scattering of female, countdown vocals.

The oldskool themed 'Listen Bass' kicks off with a scattering of classic rave vocal samples and a combination of rugged, 125bpm 'Think' breaks overlaid with steady kickdrum thumps to create a prefect fusion of classic and modern styles. We are next taken deep into the darkside, with 'Mobeus', where menacing, sci-fi atmospherics and moody bass pulses are met with tension filled, heart-monitor bleeps and crisp, shuffling breaks.

The EP draws to a close with an all-out, homage to the glory dayz of oldskool hardcore on the MC Mad P sampling 'Ultimate Bad Boy', with it's heady combination of rolling, drum-breaks, uplifting stab melodies and intense, dark bassline. 
The 'Get Dark EP' sees SwankOut draw inspiration from electronic music's rich and varied past and expertly craft those elements into a potent fusion of breakbeat-house bombs. Get on these pronto!!!

[ARR088] Chax - Lock Up EP [Available Now From All Good Allowance Records Digital Stockists!!!]


1/ Lock Up.
2/ Scary Tales.
3/ Quantum.

Looking for some hard-hitting, upfront drum & bass to get your heart thumping and feet stomping? Then look no further than Allowance Records brand new three track 'Lock Up EP' featuring the return of France's premier supplier of top quality neurofunk, Chax.

Opening track 'Lock Up' sets the tone of things to come with a series of ominous drones and dark atmospherics, perfectly building up the tension until a relentlessly heavyweight, 2-step break pattern kicks in accompanied by a bass-heavy twisting, synth pattern. 
The darkness continues on with the horror flick, dialogue sampling, 'Scary Tales' which delivers an intense, stepping breakbeat pattern layered with chiming hi-hats and overlaid by a constantly warping, acid bassline riff that'll get your neck hairs standing.
'Quantum' rounds off the EP perfectly, but does not let up the momentum one bit with it's combination of solid, rolling breaks, menacingly, warped bass growls and dischordant industrial sound effects. 

There are plenty of dystopian, sci-fi vibes to be found making all three tracks an essential addition to any set worthy of the Neurofunk title. So if you like your tunes dark and gnarly, then you need this in your collection!!!

The Chax 'Lock Up EP' is available to purchase now from the following Allowance Records digital download stockists and streaming sites...

[DOPE33] Bizzy B - 1999 Dub / The Power Of The Darkside [Limited Edition Brain Records 12" Vinyl Available To Buy Now!!!]


A-Side - 1999 Dub.
B - Side - The Power Of The Darkside.

For anyone with even a passing interest in the history of hardcore and jungle, the name Bizzy B, aka Brian Johnson is synonymous with frantic drum programming, fiercely chopped amen breaks and intensely dark atmospherics. With releases on a vast array of high profile labels such as Labello Blanco, Planet Mu, Reinforced, Suburban Base and White House Records and a musical carreer spanning the birth of hardcore, jungle and drum & bass right up to the present day, Bizzy B has been a pivitol force in the evolution breakbeat choppage.
After a several years of delivering a series of under the radar, white label vinyl singles and digital dubs, Bizzy B has chosen to resurrect his legendary Brain Records label with the release of the brand new '1999 Dub / The Power Of The Darkside' 12" single.

The previously unreleased '1999 Dub', straight from deep within the Brain Records D.A.T. archives kicks off the release in a vintage, mid-nineties ragga-jungle style. Combining frantic 'Scottie'/amen break edits with immense, 808 bass booms accompanied by a liberal smattering of ragga-soundclash chatter, '1999 Dub' proves that those classic junglist sounds are just as relevant, and devastating two-decades on from it's inception.
On the flipside we are introduced to the neo-darkcore-jungle sounds of 'The Power Of The Darkside', which drops a fierce barrage of heavyweight, chopped amenss and thundering subsonic bass throbs interlaced with a brain-searing, twisted vibrato-synth line and iconic sci-fi movie quotes. 'The Power Of The Darkside' expertly takes that classic pitch black '93/'94 hardcore-jungle formula and delivers a 2016 twist that's destined to do damage on all 'headstrong', D&B dancefloors.

As the first in a series of forthcoming Brain Records vinyl releases containing oldskool, unreleased archive material, the '1999 Dub / The Power Of The Darkside' single is a perfect taster of what is to come and an essential purchase for all oldskool and nuskool jungle, vinyl collectors!!!

Bizzy B's '1999 Dub / The Power Of The Darkside' limited edition 12" single is available to purchase now for £8.99 (plus postage & packaging) from the Sampleoidz webstore, so get on these quick as they are sure to sell out soon!!!

LLTA030 - Breakforce One - Virgin By Design [LONG LIVE THE ANIMALS]


UK's underground and established hard hitting crew and label of LLTA, returns with a smashing release presenting a personal new work from a great member of Breakcore youth, German sensation and P.A. insanity, the man like BREAKFORCE ONE.
This producer is only 20 years old and definetely skillfull, must to hear and very promising getting musically infected by the age of 6 when he started playing drums!

Coming back from a sick and huge festival like Balter, run some weeks ago over UK, Rene (his real name) enjoyed it quite a lot and spit an incredible live set proving how evolved is getting day by day...


'VIRGIN BY DESIGN' is the title of his new work, surfaced to us today and offers two different tunes from him, since he decided to calm himself (maybe a lot..) this time.
The first and self-titled track is a remix of his very own 'Virgin my Choice' (released 2 years ago on Hormonal Vibrationz) and is a 130bpm Oldskool piano breakbeat work, while the second tune called 'The Edge' is a 180bpm ravecore/breakcore madness and oldskool rushing!

BOOM!

[JIGSOREDIGI005] Apzolut - Swelling Horizon [JIGSORE SOUND]



Bristol based underground soundsystem/label like JIGSORE SOUND presents a new signed producer joining its fam and hailing from the respected Dutch community of producers.
It's all about APZOLUT.

For those who don't know anything about Rafa (his real name), he has officially started as a drummer in a grindnoizecore band called 'Extreme Assault as drummer and regarding his music skills and preferences, is totally into the hardest sounds like 
Breakcore/Jungle/Gabba sounds and already signed in various underground labels like KetaCore, Orange Socks, Encounters Records, Lomechanik, Breakcore.NL, Murder Channel, Breacore Gives Me Wood, and Bludclot Recordings.

'SWELLING HORIZON' is the name of his new personal release, which is as good as his latest 'Fierce Dynamite', but this time offering more clearly Hardcore Jungle vibes than his wild aggression of Breakcore biz in his past work in Encounters Records.
I personally dig mostly as my fav beast the 'To The End' tune, wher Rafa is offering a proper oldskool hardcore darkness. All four tracks are perfectly fit on this great hardcore jungle release in overall.

[CRTNPR 012] Return:II & Champa B - The Avenue / Love Me [Limited Edition 12" Vinyl Available To Purchase From Criterion Records Now!!!]


A - Return II - The Avenue.
AA - Champa B - Love Me.

For the Criterion Records 12th release we welcome the return of Champa B after the success of his previous 'Reform / Past & Present' single, alongside label newcomer, the immensely talented Return:II to present two essential slices of drum & bass on wax with the release of 'The Avenue / Love Me' 12".

We are first introduced to the darkly atmospheric sounds of Return:II's 'The Avenue', which combines ominous drones and subsonic bass pluses and overlays them with a series of intricately sliced, diced and manipulated amen breaks. Return:II expertly creates a sense of tension and portentous danger with 'The Avenue' that reels in the listener and does not let go. 

With 'Love Me', Champa B takes back to a time when lush, soaring pads joined in perfect harmony with frantic, rolling amen breaks, dreamlike aquatic effects and spine-tingling female vocal whispers to create the perfect fusion of both tribal and spiritual elements.

As with all releases prior, Return:II and Champa B carries on the  Criterion Records' statement of intent to bring the listener precision crafted drum & bass, exclusively on vinyl.

The Return:II and Champa B 'The Avenue/ Love Me' limited edition, white label 12" vinyl is available to purchase now for 10 Euros (+ P&P) from the Criterion Records webstore link below, and has been mastered by legendary Drum & Bass producer Sappo, courtesy of Sappo Mastering. So expect nothing but the best in sound quality!!!
