Review: Jaxx can really make music and his latest piece of work is out over on Calypso Muzak. Bionic is an energetic piece of jump-up construction that doesn't hesitate to punch you in the face and its exemplified by the title track, a bass-filled expression of dancefloor hatred which moves in mysterious yet obvious ways. It bangs, basically, as does the rest of the EP, with special mention going out to Iyahbinghi Ancient for his contribution to the excellent 'Fix Up', as well as for having a wicked name. Top stuff
Review: London label Natty Dub Recordings have become trusted torchbearers for all things junglist over the past three years or so of operation, and their latest offering is a fine example of just why. It sees two heavyweight collaborations, with Suv & Jaxx going toe to toe with Bigga Star and Spreda. Suv & Jaxx are first, riding a hefty line in drums and beats on "If You Know", with the junglist vibes and sampled vocals set deeper in the mix. "Aura" from Bigga Star and Spreda is all about that sub bass heft which will really light up any decent soundsystem.
