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.
39 tracks, 10 FX sounds and a full mix. This isn't any old slice of afternoon cake you might share your elderly neighbour or distant relative, this is a seven-tiered wedding cake full of every type of unhealthy, fattening ingredient you can imagine. And we're not stopping until we've chowed the lot. If you've feasted on Deekline and Solo's Jungle Cakes before then you'll already know how tasty this is; a selection of their own releases and similarly spirited cuts from the scene, all laced with dubwise, dancehall and skank-soaked soul. Highlights hang from every corner but you'd be mad not to peak at Aries & Gold's soul-flecked massage of Mr Benn, or Dominator & Logan D's brokeback bust-up "Cowboy" or Serial Killaz' savage repurposing of Freestyler's iconic "Entertainer". High calorie badness.
