Review: With roots going back to the turn of the decade and labels like Metalheadz in his discogs Soul Defiance needs no further reference. Neither does DJ Hybrid's Deep In The Jungle seals of approval for that matter. What we're talking about here are five moments of authentic rollage laced with superb choppy fills and powerful production. Highlights in the swashbuckling breaks chops on "Rudebwoy", the synapse snapping steps and alien bass squirms on "Oblivion" and the scattershot 23rd century funk of "Man On A Mission". Primordial super.
Review: Deep in the Jungle know how to do jungle. The clue is in the name, really, and they're proving it again with this huge compilation of 40 huge jungle anthems from some of the best rising stars of the breaksy side of the scene. RMS, SL8R and DJ Hybrid all make an appearance, as do Kumarachi, Veak, Schematic and Epicentre. This is a very strong roster and its reflected in the tunes, with Schematic and RMS teaming up on 'Take It' to combine roughshod, vibrant breaks and moody atmospherics in glorious fashion. Check this one.
