Review: Grubs up! Twisted Individual's cooked up a feast of undead delights for the first Zombie Recordings V/A collection and everyone's invited. Chewy, spicy and full of gully victuals, across the collection we're treated to all range of flavours; the peppery aftertaste of Filthy Habits & Jeopardize's "Mind Transfer", the fruity funk bursts of Imaginary Friends' "Rooftop Jam", the gamey aroma and meaty chugs of Yatuza & Nick The Lot's "Mystic Ways" and the sweet and sour textures of Alex SLK's "Kluture" are just some of the many highlights on the menu. Gunfinger-licking good!
Review: From true jungle to the real jungle: new Bristol label present their first V/A and it comes with added weight and meaning as all profits will go to charities helping preserve the Amazon Rain Forest and its communities. A serious mission requires a serious rollcall so tracks come from the likes of Conrad Subs, Veak, K Jah, Vital Elements, Sikka and of course the label headhoncho Mixjah himself. Highlights include the raw warping wobble bass of Ly Da Buddah's "Lemon Punch", Jumanji's tunnelling jungle romp "Da Skillz", the classic Bristol-flavoured minimalism mischief of Vytol & Mixjah's "So Many Heavens" but that's just the tip of a massive - and highly worthy - iceberg.
