Review: Yes, yes, yes! Tape issuing Bristol enclave presents From The Reels, an essential collection that transfers three of their best cassette releases to digital. Consisting of three releases, From The Reels: A No Corner Collection features the dizzying ride through a cybernetic future that is Modern Malaise by Lily, the fragile techno structures of El Kid's Labyrinths EP, and the zero-gravity grime and jungle of Filter Dread's Space Loops, previosuly only available on cassette and deluxe vinyl formats.
Review: It's been a killer year for DJ Hybrid's Deep In The Jungle imprint; kicking off with the Anthems album in January, he's proceeded to drop a cannon of rollers and brock-outs throughout '17... But this has to be the biggest yet: 20 brand new remixes from across the vaults by some of the label's closest allies, every track guarantees deep mix pleasure and heavy dancefloor appreciation. Highlights include DJ Cautious's outstanding rework of the Kartoon's "Soundboy Surrender", Galvatron's rifle-kick drum jitters on Bassflex's "One Amen A Day", Pull Up Collective's rough scuzzy bass on Sharpz "Junglist" and the absolutely brutal twist of Sound Shifter's take on Crisis & Ikon B's "Who Runz Tingz". Trust... Deep In The Jungle run tingz round these parts!
Review: Nothing says happy new year better than a 33-track jungle package. Ripping into the year in the same spirit they shredded 2016 with, DITJ have delivered something serious special here as some of modern jungle's finest creative minds: the never-failing DJ Hybrid slams the hammer down with the enormous VIP of "What Else", RMS continues his rich vein of form with some dagger-like samplecraft on the dancehall scorching "Burning Up", Section conjures up the spirit of Raindance past with some crafty drum-dicing "Black Magic" while Evade will turn you inside out on his trippy-assed amen omen "Reverse"... And that's just four of over thirty moments. Trust... We can't stress how massive this is.
