Two slabs of bonafide bass music on the Jungle Cakes imprint fresh for summer 2012. Kicking off no less than the fourteenth volume in the Jungle Cakes series, this one's fragrant and fresh as JFB does a grand job at pairing gentle, rolling breaks and jungle chirrups with more modern D&B production. Every bit of "Tequila Sunrise" is a tasty one with its shimmying rhythms, tooting horns and murmuring bass; this will have you moving and shaking. "Five On It" continues the story with enticing vocal, punchy drums and low-slung fervor. A big release, right here.
JFB comes storming at us on the Radical Mixtape imprint with these couple of belters. Getting things off to a cracking start is title track "Modern Past" with its warping synths, chiming SFX and gritty drum work, all the while a murmuring, irksome bassline glowering below. It's compelling stuff that will attract fans from across the bass music spectrum. Continuing on, and we have "Across The Pond" with its purposeful, striding beats and upbeat aesthetic it's full of hands in the air potential and will be a killer in the dance. A great effort here from JFB.
