The original Bristol jungle outpost Ruffneck Ting is back in operation and sounding as vital as ever on the strength of this release from The Force vs Habitat. For all those who bitterly complain about the lack of soul, imagination and rawness in modern day D&B, look no further than this four-track salvo that makes it feel like '96 all over again. Habitat keep things decidedly bouncy and not a little bit cheeky on "See Me Coming", while "Razor Blade" heads into more devoutly junglistic territory to deadly effect. The Force has a smoother blend on offer with the big leads of "City Love" bringing a little Detroit magic to the mix, while "Musical War" rubs a little rootsy skank into the crisp breakbeats.
