[BREED22] PAUL BRADLEY - Kin Cosmic EP [Limited 12" Vinyl - KNITEBREED RECORDS]


A1 - Don't Dream The Dream
A2 - Our Time
B1 - Candyman
B2 - Back Again


And the oscar goes to...Paul Bradley! Indisputably one of the most iconic producers throughout this year with a very interesting and quite attractive arsenal of tracks and personal releases on the Kniteforce movement the last years, while getting stronger day by day. Apart from his unique taste of skills, he's also a regular radio dj broadcasting every Friday @ Kniteforce Radio. But why doing this type of presentation since we got a new release from him?!It's a fact!

Well, getting into his new personal & proud work, our good friend Bradders takes us to another dimension this time more Oldskool Techno influenced (while not leaving his breakbeats) and don't know if Luna-C's recent personal EP played some role of inspiration and trying another direction, but certainly this EP proves again how determined is Captain Triceps to keep his KFlame pumping!
Personal highlight tune is 'Back Again' and maybe this is the tune that represents ideally this new path by Paul on his new work. From 'Sweet as Pie 12" EP' till now mr. Bradley has gained fans, smiley faces and moreover people who see him as one of the future brightness of Hardcore sound.

Kin Cosmic 12" EP is out now on a limited number of 300 copies and only without digital format being released to any store and of course save in your mind that all merchandise orders over 60$ (postage excluded) come with a free Kniteforce Rave Bag. And just in case you're interested for more from Paul at present time, there's an exclusive tune off this EP, which can be found here by following all useful instructions, which simply means by subscribing onto Kniteforce mailing list for better present & future as well as support to this large label.

The return of DJ Seduction and the launch of 21st Century Impact!


For a long time DJ Seduction has been retired from the scene, around 10 years.
If you're Old Skool, you know this guy was equal to Sy and Slipmatt on the circuit, while his label Impact Records left exactly that, a big Impact on the Rave scene. Consistent as a DJ, playing solid sets that were different to other DJ’s, and as a producer his style and sound quality was hard to match. Younger readers may know him and his releases from the follow on label: Maximum Impact, playing alongside Sy & Hixxy etc, and running the massive Uproar events. He was also the founder of the huge 90's events, Hardcore Heaven and co-promoter of United Dance as the music moved from Breakbeats through to 4beat, and into Happy Hardcore. So as you can see this guy has been hugely influential in the Rave scene for the biggest part of 2 decades!

That's why it was a big deal when DJ Seduction started re-appearing on flyers here and there and why this recent week is an even bigger deal, as he launches a brand new label!


21ST CENTURY IMPACT LAUNCHES WITH 2 DEBUT RELEASES!

Hardcore Breaks really is alive in 2018, we have new releases dropping left right and centre. What makes this special though is DJ Seduction brings back his classic original Impact records sound, stabs, pianos, samples, sub basses etc, but up-to date with todays production and sound! Rolling out at the original tempos of the early Impact releases, with proper breakbeats and neither the 2 step kick/snare pattern some opt for, or the pounding relentless kick-drums, we're talking proper authentic Hardcore Rave sounds! These tracks sound huge and Seduction's production stands out within seconds, both the riffs and the sound quality! Sounding lush and warm, nice and evenly balanced.




21st Century Impact - Release 1:
DJ SEDUCTION - IT'S YOU / SUB DUB 2018



"IT'S YOU"
Starts off with nice breaks that are chopped from various sources, with a rising lead that immediately drops into a lush warm sub with a unique stab pattern, before the full energy of the Amen drops as the track still rises. Then dropping into a lush piano line that filters out with a vocal (I'm sure you may recognise!) and nice old skool cuts and samples you may recognise.
The Amen drops back in with some lush accompanying pads, leading into the second drop, a full stab riff with some nice beat choppage and science going on, leading back into the lush piano, pads and vocal before it starts stripping away it's layers as it approaches it's end.




"SUB DUB 2018"
Starting off cutting up the famous 'Come Again' scratch sample from the original track, and some nice old skool breakbeats, a lush vocal pad enters, dropping into the classic vocal, filtered with an underlying bass and a nice piano line added. Snare rolls and Jungle style build ups, rising into the 'Come Again' vocal sample, before dropping into big subs, nice beat choppage with stabs coming in and mixing with the vocal being cut and filtered, dropping once again into a lush and crazy stab pattern that fuses with the nice Jungle style chopped breaks.

This one really gives you a workout and I can see this definitely working on various dance-floors. Nice to have new life injected into an old Impact classic while also bringing you something brand new.




21st Century Impact - Release 2:
DJ SEDUCTION - LOVE LIKE THIS / SWEET SENSATION



"LOVE LIKE THIS"
I really like this tune, it's very uplifting and energetic! It starts with a nice effected drum loop, into a snare roll, then into a classic Old Skool drum break, big sub drops (understatement!) and classic Quad break with a nice pad into a lush piano with a nice vocal that I don't recognise, then a lush shaker drum riff accompanying it.

Then a memorable mad stab riff which slides down the keyboard working itself back into the lush piano, with really powerful sub drops, I really want to hear this out on a big system!




"SWEET SENSATION"
This tune is like a sexy blast back to the 80's! Opens with a lush and funky shaker drum beat before an even more funky Apache break adds to it. Classic scratch samples (Think Bomb The Bass / M.A.R.R.S.) add to the funk, before dropping into a trademark Impact sound, a stab riff with the classic 'DJ's Unite' stab! Holloway vocals with high strings enter, then some funky beats and basslines, a nice pad, a 'Kick Some Arse' vocal, through to the 2nd drop with the classic vocal into a steppy beat, chopping with the stab.

Very different and full of 80s vibes, a real feel good tune, then drops into a darker stab riff rolling out to the end.




THE DJ SEDUCTION BONUS MIX!

I must say this mix is great! It's fresh and exciting, because not only do you get the odd expected Seduction / Impact classic scattered through the mix, obviously the new releases showcase on it and when you hear them in the mix they really stand out! Alongside the classics and new releases feature some bootlegs / mash ups, unreleased and potential future releases from the new 21st Century Impact label, and some dubplates from Seduction's collection. One thing is for sure, it's exclusive material and it's exciting!

The more you hear these tunes, the more you'll love them, they really grow on you! All 4 tracks are really strong! There were some Limited Edition Test Presses available but they went very quickly, so that tells you how strong and important these releases are!

For £14.99 you get the 12" single of the tracks, the WAV versions of the release plus an exclusive 1 hour DJ Seduction Mix which is pretty good value.

The tunes are all great and the mix is fresh, so a great bundle and a must have for all nu skool vinyl lovers and collectors.




Releases are available exclusively direct from the 21st Century Impact store here:
21st Century Impact
https://21stcenturyimpact.databeats.com

Both releases are available to pre-order now on the store and only 300 copies are being pressed, so grab yours!
There are also future releases now in the pipeline and there should be more coming before the end of the year.

[VMRDT114] Dredillah - Into Focus [Available From All Good Viral-Mental Records Digital Stores Now!!!]


1/ Into Focus
2/ It's Proper.
3/ Hit That.

Viral-Mental Records welcomes back Dredillah to the fold as he unleashes a trio of upfront, floor-filling drum & bass bombs with the release of the 'Into Focus' EP.

'Into Focus' sets the ball rolling with it's heady blend of crisp, two-step breaks paired with pensive, ascending pads and repeated namesake vocal refrains underpinned by a devastating, droning bassline that'll rattle your ribcage for definite.

Up next, 'It's Proper' adds a sci-fi twist to the pot with it's use of atonal blips and squelches and warped bass notes, paired with a relentless stepping breakbeat, layered intermittently spine-tingling with amen rolls.

Rounding off the collection we are immediately introduced to the deep and dark atmospherics of 'Hit That', a dark and brooding neurofunk roller, sounding reminiscent of Valve Records in it's early noughties heyday. 

For his latest collection, Dredillah puts back the "funk" to the neuro D&D formulae, whilst ensuring that the bassline remains King. This one's strictly for the dancefloor fiends!!!

Dredillah's 'Into Focus' EP is available to purchase from all good Viral-Mental Records digital stockists and streaming sites now!!!

[XHR012] Various - Sounds Of Summer 3 [10-Track EP Available To Download Now!!!]


1/ Case 82 - Summer Vibez.
2/ MHX - Summer Break.
3/ Amaretto - Burning Now.
4/ Langham - I Just Wanna.
5/ Bagpuss - Unity (In The Sun).
6/ Deadly Nightshade - New Dawn.
7/ Pursuit - Comin' @ Ya.
8/ Sparki Dee - Spin Me Out.
9/ Beats Are Broken - Serenity.
10/ Paul Cronin - 1234 Hit It.

XTRAHard Records keep those Summer vibes flowing, long after the light evenings and 20 degree temperatures have abandoned us, with the release of the third volume of their long-running 'Sounds Of Summer' albums. Volume three features ten euphoria soaked contributions from the cream of the underground, breakbeat hardcore scene. So let's dig out those shades one last time and get ready for some sounds of Summer!!!

The collection kicks off to a thundering start with Case 82's breakbeat meets uplifting piano-driven 'Summer Vibes', a pure adrenalin soaked, hand-in-the-air, 1992 style banger if there ever was one!!! 
MHX follows soon after with 'Summer Break', an electro meets 1991, Euro-hardcore themed track, jam-packed with electrifying hoover riffs and joyous synth melodies, which perfectly balance the darker and lighter elements.

Up next we have Amaretto who utilises tearing amen breaks and Todd Terry stabs on the upfront happy hardcore anthem, 'Burning Now', alongside classic Loleatta Holloway, 'Love Sensation' vocal snippets.
'I Just Wanna' by Langham sees 2018 hardcore breaks represented in the house, with it's use of razor-sharp, bass heavy synth riffs and chopped-up vocal manipulations expertly blended into the mix.

Lazer FM regular, (DJ) Bagpuss takes us on an upfront, breakbeat hardcore roller-coaster ride with his namesake ode to the legendary Corfu, week-long rave event 'Unity (In The Sun)'. Before XTRAHard Records' head honcho, Deadly Nightshade takes over the controls with his Nina Simone (and MC Kinky) sampling 'New Dawn', which incorporates rugged breaks over a pounding 4/4 kickdrum layered with an euphoric, trance style breakdown.

This Is Nu-Rave label boss, Pursuit steps up to the plate next with his thundering reggae rave beast, 'Comin' @ Ya', a track which drops a classic reggae riddim' over riotous, time-stretched beats and a pumping bassline. Check out the nod to Production House on this one!
Sparki Dee's 'Spin This Out' sees the album take a more restrained, chilled turn with it's use of soothing, reversed pad notes and a sedate bass pattern, paired with a tearing, chopped up amen break backing. 

'Serenity' by Beats Are Broken sees us rewound back even further, as we are introduced to what could possibly be the very first eighties-core, rave track, with it's use of crunching beats and Kraftwork style, vintage synth sounds!!!
The one and only Raveskool Recordings Commander-In-Chief, Paul Cronin drops his ubiquitous, manic hardcore signature on closing track, '1234 Hit It', 120 mph whirlwind of breakbeats, eclectic samples and adrenalising stab patterns.

If you are looking for some of the very best headstrong and energising future rave anthems, then you need 'Sounds Of Summer 3' in your collection!!!


Xtra Hard Records' 'Sounds Of Summer 3' is available to download now from Deadly Nightshade's Bandcamp page for the bargain price of £7, or more if you wish to support the label and artists to fund future releases.

[LOSS011] Various ‎- Versus Volume Four [4-Track Vinyl EP Available To Purchase Now!!!]


A1 - Trisector & Infader - Who Are You.
A2 - Faible & Konfusion - Innocent.
B1 - Slider & Expose - Soundsistem.
B2 - Soul Intent - Snow (feat. E).

Lossless Music have been renowned for seeking out the freshest drum & bass talent out there, and with the label's 'Versus Volume Four' EP they have shown no signs of abandoning their mission to deliver the very best the scene has to offer. 

We are first greeted to the dark and gritty sounds of Finnish production duo, Trisector & Infader's 'Who Are You', a track brimming with menacing atonal atmospherics, globular bass snarls and relentless breaks which generates an exhilarating sense of Dystopian dread.
Taking us from the darkness into the light we have Vienna based double act Faible & Konfusion, who deliver a sleek and soulful slice of liquid drum & bass with 'Innocent', which expertly injects a welcome dose of funk into the mix.

Heading over to the flipside, Slider & Expose take you on a hard-hitting, dub infused journey with 'Soundsistem', a track driven by thunderous kicks and jittery, layered breaks, combined with moody, buzzing bass notes and reggae trumpet blasts.
Lossless label boss Soul Intent has the honour of closing the collection with his sublime, liquid D&B number 'Snow', comprised of a soothing blend of frenetic, skipping breaks, luscious pad sounds and a warm, enveloping bassline accented with E's soulful vocals.

The 'Versus' series fourth volume succeeds in presenting a rich and varied selection of stylistically diverse tracks that will be a welcome addition to the collection of any fan of deep and adventurous drum & bass. 

The 'Versus Volume Four' 12" vinyl EP is available to purchase now for £8.50 plus P&P (or more if you wish to support the artists and label to carry on the cause!!!). All vinyl copies come with a free digital download too.

[DEAD002] Silkenator - Trapped / The System [12" Vinyl Only Single Available From Dead Beat Records Now!!!]


A - Trapped.
AA - The System.

After a year and two months after it's last emergence had passed , a stirring in the darkness has occurred and Dead Beat Records has returned from the void from which it was banished, to unleash it's second, vinyl only outing. This time it's the Silkenator (aka Worldwide Epidemic) who takes the helm with the release of 'Trapped / The System', two essential slices of jungle techno  straight from the darkside!!!

First up we are presented with the sounds of 'Trapped's deep, and sinister opening pad sounds to install a pertinent sense of dread in the listener, before unravelling a succession of skittish breaks and pounding, 4/4 kicks to get drive the track on. The moodiness is amplified by the inspired use of choice 'Cloverfield Lane', sci-fi-horror samples and a pad driven drop to die for making this a futurist, darkcore gem that'll be a go to for any self-respecting jungle techno fanatic.

On the flip-side, 'The System' continues on with a similar "trapped", sci-fi theme by welding together snippets of dialogue from 1997's 'The Cube' with a relentless combination of kicks and breaks, backed by enveloping, dark pads and bubbling, synth riffs. 'The System' effortlessly creates an atmosphere of pure tension, leaving the listener entrapped within it's own rhythmic maze.

We may have had an long wait for Dead Beat Records' comeback, but with the Silkenator in tow, our patience has well and truly rewarded. Do not hesitate on pick up your copy, as there are only 100 of the out there!!!

The Silkenator's 'Trapped / The System' , 12" vinyl only single is available to purchase exclusively from the Demonic Possession Recordings webstore for the absolute steal of a price, £7.99 (plus P&P).

[CRTNPR 022] Various ‎- Something Something / Shackles / Muted Colours / 13th Chapter [12" Vinyl Available To Purchase Now From Criterion Records!!!]


A1 - Tactical Aspect - Something Something.
A2 - ADM - Shackles.
B1 - Polarity - Muted Colours.
B2 - Furious & Paragon - 13th Chapter.


It's been way too long since I last checked out the latest from Criterion Records, and what a release to drop in at with 'Something Something / Shackles / Muted Colours / 13th Chapter', which features contributions from some of the hottest underground jungle and drum & bass producers out there at this moment in time.

Leading the charge we have production duo Tactical Aspect, who present to us their retrospective, amen-jungle rinse-out track 'Something Something', which sees frenetic breakbeat edits do battle with a thundering bassline and 1993 style, Reinforced Records style atmospherics. 
ADM up next also utilises fierce amen manipulations with 'Shakles', a track which sees the iconic break sliced, diced, filtered and time-stretched to oblivion and coupled with cavernous, moody bass drones and dark, Blue note era mentasm snarls that'll send shivers up your spine for sure.

The B-Side sees Polarity takes us into deep, intelligent jungle territory with 'Muted Colours', which sees us treated to a rich fusion of luscious pads and vintage female vocal samples (shades of Omni Trio here) layered over intense drum work and gentle bass pulses to wash over your soul.
To round off this collection we have Furious & Paragon's '13th Chapter', a glacially cold blend of pitch black pads, interlaced with heavily reverberated vocal effects, ten-ton, tearing breaks and punishing, bass heavy synth riff which conjure up visions of a monstrous behemoth, destroying everything in it's path.

If you consider yourself a connoisseur of deep, and intelligently crafted drum & bass soundscapes, combined with intricate breakbeat programming, then this latest release from Criterion Records will be an essential addition to your collection.

The 'Something Something / Shackles / Muted Colours / 13th Chapter' EP is available to purchase now from the official Criterion Records webstore for €10 (plus postage & packing).

[Bandcamp] $in Gin Hong Qwan - Computer Music EP [6-Track Mini-Album Available To Download Now!!!]


1/ Computer Music.
2/ Bad Neighbourhood.
3/ Get Schwifty.
4/ Peter Griffin Tekno Fly.
5/ Devvo Tekno.
6/ We Don't Do Anything.

Coming from the brains behind F.O.T.H.'s (aka Fool On The Hill) quirky brand of jungle comes $in Gin Hong Qwan, who unleashes his six-track 'Computer Music' EP in his even quirkier style of warped, experimental  tekno (not techno!). Come follow me as we become acquainted with the strange world of $in Gin Hong Qwan... 

The EP opens to the twisted retro tekno sounds of 'Computer Music', a relentless flurry of pounding 4/4 kicks and reversed bass throbs blended in with vintage 'Speak & Spell' vocalisms which recall classic mid-nineties Rephlex artists such as Cylob and AFX. 
Up next the pace quickens with 'Bad Neighbourhood' which ramps up the techno tension by layering menace filled dialogue from Clint Eastwood's, 2008 revenge flick 'Gran Torino' over a frenetic kickdrum and frantic, ascending/descending bassline.

We then tip our toes into some madcap, hardcore acid techno next with the 'Rick & Morty' sampling 'Get Schwifty', which fuses together a plethora of cartoon dialogue with thundering beats, bubbling acid melodies and euphoric rave stabs to devastating effect.
The animated mayhem continues even further on 'Peter Griffen Tekno Fly', near gabber hardcore style melting pot of distorted kicks and mashed-up vocal manipulations of the titular 'Family Guy' patriarch's trademark 'Nyeah!'s.

The distorted beats continue on with an added Parental Advisory warning to boot with 'Devvo Tekno', which pays homage to the infamous aforementioned chav MC, with it's clever use of his repeated inanities laid over a ten ton beat.
The tempo eases back a few notches for the EP's conclusion, 'We Don't Do Anything', which drops a thundering acid techno jam, packed with twisted 303 riffs and rapid-fire hi-hats to get you mind, body and soul locked into that outer rhythmic groove!!!


The 'Computer Music' EP is the perfect antidote for anyone who is bored rigid by cookie-cutter, staid techno releases. So grab yourself a copy and 'ave yourself some bangin'. eclectic tekno fun!!!!  

The $in Gin Hong Qwan 'Computer Music' EP is available to download now for a 'Name Your Price' fee, enabling you to either purchase for free, or to donate how much you feel it deserves (so please dig deep to support the artist make more music!!!).

[SOFR002] Law & Kola Nut - Detection / Out Of Fokus ‎[12" Vinyl Only Single Available Now From Sonic Force Recordings!!!]


A - Detection.
B - Out Of Fokus.

After the success of Silent Force Recordings storming sublabel debut from Dissect, Sonic Force Recordings unveils it's second outing, employing the immense talents the Repertoire label's Commander-In-Chief, Law and fellow jungle co-conspirator, Kola Nut with the release of the 'Detection / Out Of Focus' 12" single and digital download. 

We are first greeted by the deep and atmospheric amenism of 'Detection', which deftly weaves together an exquisite tapestry of rolling, jungle breaks, enveloping pads and evocative bass pulses, peppered with snatches of stirring movie dialogue to underpin the tracks mysterious edge.

The flipside sees things take on a more melancholic tone with 'Out Of Fokus' through it's use of yearning, minor keys as the track progresses. The combination of stepping breaks and gentle bass notes underpinning the emotive melody gives 'Out Of Fokus' a depth not often found in electronic music, and makes this one a true essential.

Law and Kola Nut nail that iconic atmospheric jungle sound as championed by labels such as Lucky Spin, Good Looking and Street Beats, circa 1994-1995, whilst injecting a touch of 2018 production skills into the formulae. If you consider yourself an admirer of any of the aforementioned labels, then you need this in your collection!!!

The Law & Kola Nut, 'Detection / Out Of Fokus' 12" single is available exclusively from the official Sonic Force Recordings Bandcamp wesbstore for £9.99 (plus p&p). Only 200 copies exist, so get on this one quickly before the all disappear!!!

The darkness continues with the latest release on Invasion Recordings which sees brand new signings, Mind Head & Rieger drop some pitch black, Russian neurofunk action with their 'Hellhound / Muck' single.

First we have the unleashing of the 'Hellhound', a track jam-packed with menacing atmospherics, industrial two-step breaks, subsonic bass groans and a twisted synth line which sounds like it was dredged from the depths of hell itself. Watch out, this beast is coming in for the kill!!!

Bringing up the rear we are driven face-first into the 'Muck', a grimy bassline driven stepper flavoured scuttling beats with exhilarating, trance like flourishes that crawl up your spine like cybernetic arachnids. A tune which perfectly embodies that cyberpunk ethos in audio form.

For their debut appearance on Invasion Recordings, MindHead & Rieger firmly establishes that they are going to be a future force to be reckoned with. 

The MindHead & Rieger 'Hellhound / Muckis available to download as an exclusive Beatport pre-release before going on general release, so be quick befoe everyone else gets on board!!!
