Ray Keith's Dread Recordings has one of the longest pedigrees in jungle music, it's been around for decades and their collection of music is suitably vast. This EP from FleCK - another longtime producer - is coming on the Dubplate sublabel, which is reserved for tracks that have been around for a while yet have never seen the light of day. FleCK's talent is on clear show here and the overall vibe is one of rough and tumble jungle, jungle that's made for grotty basements and underground spaces with a special commitment to the roots of the genre. It sounds fresh, though, especially 'Living a Lie' featuring Ngaio, which opens with sultry vocal lines before flipping into an altogether darker affair, a seamless transition that FleCK has made seem easy. 'Lover' has fantastic gravelly bassline, whilst the VIP of 'Ganja Day' is a funky, upbeat number that's breath of light in a grungy release. All of these are umissable for those who love their jungle.
