Review: Humdruma Recordingz always try their best to replicate the no-holds-barred, anarchic nature of life on the 19th century, American frontier and they do so via the aggressive tones of modern D&B. This is a best-of compilation of tracks that have come out through the label and it puts that ethos on good display, featuring some seriously weighty acts like Coda and Ikon B. The former's contribution is especially potent, a gargling display of production intensity and a lesson to all budding artists out there in how to create a knockout jump-up track, its biting bass stabs teaching you all you need to know. Ikon B's tune - 'Really' - is equally as naughty but it rests on a much more potent set of drum hits, giving it an extra oomph that you can certainly hear. The others are just as good - check em.
Review: The beats are big and the vibes are plentiful in this massive remix release from the Deep In The Jungle crew. Already releasing a massive anthology of anthems earlier on in 2015, they return with refixes of some of the more devastating tracks. Bringing in the likes of Kartoon, Brian Brainstorm, SR and Digbee to bring new life into these tunes has made this EP one of the tuffest jungle releases in a long time. If junglism is your thing and you're tired of pale imitations, you need an injection of this in your system. Turn it up and feel that dub!
