Review: Hot on the heels of "Outta My Head / Give Me Something" the Haggis comeback is in full effect as they drop another sure-fire brass-blasting blunderbuss: "Take It Back" features slippery lyricism of writer/comedian/MC extraordinaire Doc Brown alongside their signature tight groove and rolling sense of playful funk. Loaded with an instrumental on the B, this one is guaranteed to sizzle your summer.
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.
Review: It's been nigh on 30 years since Jon Marsh and co released their second album 'Happiness', which spawned the massive singles 'Hello' and 'The Sun Rising'. A collection of remixes called 'Blissed Out' followed eight months later, but that set has never had a digital release... until now, that is! As it probably inevitable with a collection of mixes that were tailored to the club tastes of 1990, one or two of the cuts haven't aged that well but there's still plenty to enjoy here, including two less-overplayed takes on 'Hello', the ragga-vocalled Muffin Mix of 'Time After Time' and the Ratpack-biting Special K Dub of 'Pablo'.
