Choices: You can do this the easy way or "The Hardway Vol 6". Pick the former and your life is simple but kinda unfulfilling. Pick the latter and you're rewarded three killer jungle jams from everyone's favourite antisocialists. Jinx gives Durban's remix of Savvanah a complete rinsing, Vinyl Junkie, Rachael EC and Boomah's "Fade Away" is the sound of a beautiful sunrise at 172BPM while Choppah cuts us down a peg or seven with the super-skank slammer "Tuff Sound". Hard times call for hard ways.
One of the savviest axis-flexors in the D&B / jungle game, DJ Hybrid has an all seeing eye across the soundboy spectrum with his two labels and mixed-style signature. Here the full focus is on his flagship label Audio Addict with his first exclusive-powered mix album that covers all the crucial corners. Every track rattles and shakes with energy and subversion: the jungle chaos of his own "Mix & Blend", the iced-out atmos and toxic drop of Swerve's "Massive & Crew", the gunshot bass holes caused by Lost Dynamics "New Funk", the jaw-dropping ruthlessness of Ray Keith's take on "Badboy", the list goes on... DJ Hybrid levels up once more.
