Founding fathers of jump-up skank-wise drum & bass, Vital Elements and Tera return with the official mix album we've been waiting for since their Top Cat throw down five years ago. Blazing through 50 tracks, the mix is devilishly close to their legendary clubs sets. But that's just the start as many tracks and their own special remixes are being made available for the first time; the premium positivity of 2Nice's "Uprising" the gruelling drum switches of Krome & Time's "The Licence", Ras Demo's spitfire mic-wrenching on "Fire" and the straight-up nasty of SK's "Kill Tune Time" are the tip of the highlight iceberg. Complete with a selection of DJ FX tools, Jungle Cakes and Serial Killaz have created a next level junglist package right here.
David Lee dusts off some late 90s magic with this reissue of "Does It Feel Good 2 U?" (first released in 1998), which arrives replete with two new remixes from J Paul Ghetto. The original is pretty hard to beat, and it arrives here in extended form, all loopy disco elements and peak time vocals. There are also handy bonus beats and acapella version for the more adventurous DJs, but for our money the real gem here is the J Paul Ghetto dub - all simmering late night chords which create a slinky late night deep house vibe.
