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.
