Review: The Aphrodite Recordings crew are back it once again, this one delivering one last bomb shell to put an end to 2020 with. They welcome in A-Zone alongside Aphrodite and a host of incredible remixers for 'Calling The People', a big room breakbeat epic, jam packed with good energies and intense bassweight. We kick off with the Freestylers 'SoundClash' remix, pushing pulsating subs and super rhythmic drum shakes, before Bladerunner sends the track to the jungle jungle chopper, unleashing high energy breaksy action alongside more powerful bass expressions. Following this, the '2020 Jungle' mix gives us a much more updated and high energy version of the original, which also gets a full re-record. The release also features a dub mix for the Freestylers rework, alongside instrumental and 170bpm remixes of the jungle recreation. Wonderful stuff all around!

Review: Pure Aphro funk, don daddy Aphrodite digs deep into the vaults once again for the fourth instalment in his Classics series. One of the key producers behind the original jump-up sound in the mid 90s, the album opens with the iconic sounds of "Spice" where smooth jazz gets the blunderbuss by bouncy bass before taking us through his synthetic space-aged bass era ("Karma Sutra"), his early 90s jungle era (most notably the savage breaks of his Amazon II project) and walloping us with cult party classics along the way ("Underworld", "Bomber Style") He's not called king of the beats for nothing.
