Review: Any jungle is festival jungle when dropped at the right time, but if you're looking for out-and-out skanky bumpers that guarantee arena meltdowns look no further as Vinyl Junkie and Rachael EC have selected 48 (yes 48) cuts that promise to raise all kinds of bodily temperatures, noises and movements. Serum's wobble-funk "Rat Trap VIP", Rob Blaze's system-slaying "Sound Boy", DJ Hybrid's Headz-style drone bass snake-wrestler, the iconic rave vocal emotion on Vinyl Junkie & Sanxion's "Ninja Bizznizz", Billy Bunter's chaotic dancehall skanker "Killa Sound".... We could list the highlights for days on end. An epic collection.
Review: Fast becoming one of the leading lights in the nu-jungle scene, London outfit Radiokillaz get loose with two more rip-snorting breakers. "Unity" has 'anthem' written all over it; with a rifle-like riddim, big synths, well selected vocal samples and a message we can all get down with, it's instant floor fuel. "Bulletproof" is a dedication to jungle's true roots with a very cleverly manipulated horn hook, turbo-charged skank punches and a sudden twist to an almighty squelch-bass riff mid-way. Immense!
