Review: Can we get a 'wicked?' Jungle Cakes continue to team up with some of the biggest donnies in the game with this latest Welcome To The Jungle collection. This time curated and fronted by the General himself, as you'd expect this is a full-on jungle assault that covers every single angle and every single era. 47 tracks and one killer mix, hosted and toasted by Levy himself, this is one of Jungle Cakes most comprehensive collections to date: From the foundation-setting, historic vibes of "Incredible" through to contemporary bangers from the likes of Kursiva, DJ Hybrid, Jam Thieves, Benny Page and all things in between, everyone involved has delivered something special. Massive.
Review: Prepare yourselves for something a little different from The CBS as they present "Mike 4 President" on the Jam City imprint. Breakbeat is brought firmly up to date here, as enticing melodies, cheeky lyrics and sweeping atmospherics are brought together. This is a definite party starter - take note. Remixes come from Psychemagik, who spices it up a treat with pattering beats and jiving melodies; and also Erb n Dub who provides a good dose of dubbed out musical magic.
Review: Traditionally, Sunner Soul's loopy, loved-up disco, soul and boogie revisions have tended towards the slow and sensual. This time round, though, the Vintage Music boss is targeting peak-time dancefloors, starting with the chunky, bass-heavy disco-house dustiness of "What Are You Waiting For". He also serves up a mid-tempo chunk of disco-sampling, sub-heavy deep house wooziness (the ace "Ready To Pump") and a rolling, 110 BPM chunk of orchestral disco chunkiness ("Ultrafunk Orchestra"). The EP also includes a tasty bonus in the shape of The Sunshine Disco Club's "Sweet Journey (Synth Jam)", where warm pianos and winding, D-Train style synth solos rise above a dusty, spaced-out groove.
