Review: Massive collaboration business at Asbo HQ as the one and only Vinyl Junkie invites friends over for some straight-up jungle fun. "Fade Away" sees him teaming up with Bristol's Rachael E.C at the controls and David Boomah on the mic. As always, David is the star of the show with his distinctive dulcets spreading wise vibes throughout the skank-packed roller. Looking for something a little darker? Look no further than his Sanxion co-piloted stepper "Rolling Ice Cubes". With a heavy twist of 95 in the mix, there's some real head-bending science going on here.
Review: 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.
Review: 48 tracks? Asbo you are truly spoiling us. The quality is as high as the quantity too; a selection of Asbo classics and brand new flavours we're taken from smooth silky rolling soul such as Westy's "Making Moves" and jazzy V-style thunder like Savannah's "Glide Away" to hurricane amen depth (Dawn Raid, Gold Dubs & Jinx - "Old Fashioned") and classic mid 90s style jump-up ruffage (Cabin Fever's remix of "Raw Dogs") via warm-as-toast dub soul a la Vinyl Junkie & Sanxion's "Talk Too Much" and Daffy's beautiful "Love Dub". And that's only an eighth of killer cuts on here. Easily one of the best tenners a junglist can invest this month.
