Review: Last spotted on Clawhammer's Jukebox album late last year, Audit returns the Droitwich HQ and this time he's offering a full-scale assessment of everything that's great about jungle. "Move On It" celebrates the 31-style deep rollers where the percussive break twists inside out of bellowing subs, "Power Hour" is a live drum frenzy that tips a nod to the Paradox's of the world before dropping into an Enei-style machine-funk groove while "Slopper" drones with such restrained, cold menace it could have seeped out of Need For Mirrors' studio. Finally "Clash" investigates the dub side of the dance with processed skanks and a slick steppy drop. Each track flexing with distinction, the title Seismic Activity really does sum it up.
Review: The Gun Audio label have been killing it with each and every release since it opened for business at the beginning of 2013, but for those who haven't yet had a chance to experience their cutting edge take on D&B, this second label compilation is essential business. From the sci-fi synths of Mackie Gee's "Transmission" through the punishing rhythms of Jaydan's "Acid High" and Benns' "Disconnected" to the more classic sounds of Bladerunner's "Hot Steppa", there really is something for every discerning D&B fan here to chew on!
