DJ Hybrid - "What You Gonna Do" (Delphi Productions remix) - (5:36) 172 BPM
Review: 36 Hertz Recordings are back on track and back on beat this week, with a fiery compilation that isn't the longest out there but surely one of the hardest. Every single cut on this album is an explosion of vibrant jungle breaks and moody subterranean sonics, courtesy of some big names like DJ Hybrid, NC-17 and recent Metalheadz feature Jem One. The latter's track is especially good, a featherweight intro leading on into an aggressive, rambunctious slice of feverous energy, Jem One's recent foray onto the OG imprint of jungle music apparent in every bar. Perfectly timed to fit in with the new wave of junglist pressure coming out across the UK, 36 Hertz have hit the nail on the head with this one.
Review: 36 Hertz present a momentous compilation album containing cuts from artists as wide reaching as DJ Vapour, Callide, Bladerunner and DJ Madd. Gird your loins as "Deja vu" contains the creme de la creme of uncompromising jump-up alongside 21st century jungle and plenty more in between. Kicking off with the awesome Paper Cuts VIP of "Cut Paper" by Vapour and it's all blazing beats, jump up toots and punishing drums; moving on and we have the raw power of Lutin's aptly entitled "Untitled Gully" and Bladerunner's jungle revivalist anthem "Mercenary Dub VIP". Elsewhere, make sure you check out Steppa & Kitcha's rambunctious "Romper Stomper" and DJ Madd's compelling cut "To The Massive" with its low slung swagger. A cracking compilation here.
