Review: Batten down your hatches, lock down your aerials, keep your pets inside: Deep In The Jungle are about to slap 2018 silly with another massive album. And it kicks off here with some of the label's finest. Bossman DJ Hybrid and currently unstoppable RMS take the lead with "Now That Your Gone" which hits and slices with a Charge-style hoover riff, Welsh artist Substrate follows with his DITJ debut, the amen-shattering, Remarc-style slammer "Crayfish" while the bulletproof banger wizard Kumararchi gets all grizzly and ruffneck on "Buss A Ting". Finally Opius & Dapz leave us hanging for more with a powerful brock-out that nods slyly at the mid 90s Urban Takeover sound with added splashes of gospel. Bring on the album!
Review: From deep in the jingle, Deep In The Jungle arise from their Christmas chrysalis with their biggest album to date... 44 absolute beasts from some of their closest allies, freshest friends and long-time sparring partners. From the soaring synths and twisted drum switches of Kumarachi's "For You" to the classical rave feels of Demented Frequency's "Amens On The Nile" via absolute toxic gully from the likes of Galvatron, Didak, Veak, Redline, Epicentre, Sweet N Sikka, Conrad Subs, Martyn Nytram and the bossman DJ Hybrid himself this is a pure steel steal. Nothing short of essential.
Review: Deep In The Jungle got picked out by UKF has one of the top labels of 2018 the other week and it's certainly well deserved, for they just consistently bang out some of the most vibey jungle around. They also represent forthcoming artists and we'll always support those who give a platform to people who otherwise might not. The album is a huge fifty tracks, spanning some well-known names like DJ Hybrid, SL8R, Conrad Subs, RMS and Kumarachi. The latter kicks off the album with a bang, 'Have You Here' sweeping down the range with its DLR-esque bassline and riotous attitude. It's a emblematic of the quality present on the rest of the album - check it out.
