[KLP Records] DJ Monk - Hold Me / Dreams [Unreleased Oldskool Jungle - Available To Download Now]

1/ Hold Me.
2/ Dreams.

Jungle veteran DJ Monk has dug into his DAT collation once more to unearth two more unreleased and remastered KLP Records jungle gems, circa '94-'95. 

The bouncy basslined 'Hold Me' kicks off the proceedings with a chunky, stepping break interspersed with rolling amen edits accompanied by a combination of rugged rap and soulful R&B samples to create a classy slab of jump-up jungle. 
'Dreams' opens with languid, jazzy guitar licks and seductive female vocals on the intro before dropping a massive, hard-stepping breakbeat pattern peppered with choice Public Enemy samples and an all enveloping, booming bass-throb melody to the mix.

Despite the term 'jump-up' receiving a lot of negative commentary from some of the more chin-strokey members of the Jungle/D&B communities, DJ Monk's 'Hold Me / Dreams' shows exactly why such well-crafted jump-up was such a huge success in terms of creating dancefloor devastation back in it's 1995-1997 hey-day, and deserves the attention that other elevated forms of high BPM breakbeat based music receIve.

DJ Monk's 'Hold Me / Dreams' is available to purchase in a variety of digital formats from the KLP Records Bandcamp page and is due to receive a limited 12" vinyl release in the near future. So be sure to keep an eye out for the latest KLP Records updates by following the Facebook and Soundcloud pages.

[INMR002] Various Artists - Worldwide Jungle Vibe [12-Track Free Album - Out Now From Inner Minds Recordings]

1/ 16AJ - Make Your Choice (Liver Die).
2/ 8en - Buried.
3/ Amiga Breaks - Back 2 Dalston Lane.
4/ Londy - Things Change.
5/ Msymiakos - The Norwegian Junglist.
6/ Paul Cronin - Bad Girls Go To Hell.
7/ Mighty Dreadnaut - Smokin A Blunt (Remix).
8/ D-Audi - I Feel Good.
9/ Myk Dubz featuring Lily Garcia - The Dark Strings.
10/ 2Brainz - Space Jam.
11/ Zsonic - Assassin Droid.
12/ Redshift - We're Reggae.

To prove that jungle has long become a worldwide musical phenomenon, Inner Mind Recordings have pooled some of the best talent from as far and wide as Norway, Germany, USA, Japan, Canada and the UK for the release of the massive 'Worldwide Jungle Vibe' album.

'Worldwide Jungle Vibe' sets itself off in a ruffneck, junglistic fashion with the tearing and sinister and cinematic opener, 'Make Your Choice (Liver Die)' by 16AJ closely followed by 8en's 1994-style homage to bass heavy, dancehall, ragga-jungle, 'Buried'. Amiga Breaks then timewarps us back even further to 1992 with 'Back 2 Dalston Lane', where he infuses snappy breaks with an infectious piano melody, moody bass throbs and classic diva vocals.

Londy changes things back a gear with the sublime and jazzy vibed 'Things Change' before Mysmiakos adds some serious dub flavours to the amen driven 'The Norwegian Junglist'. 'Bad Girls Go To Hell' by Paul Cronin sees his trademark, heavyweight D&B amens meet with monolithic rave stabs and one killer bassline.

The Mighty Dreadnaught revisits some classic oldskool jungle themes with his tearing 'Smokin A Blunt (Remix)', complete with some cheeky samplage like they used to do so well back then. D-Audi then follows up with a chilled, yet rolling amen-funk workout on 'I Feel Good' which is sharply contrasted by Myk Dubz' pitch black and ominous 'The Dark Strings' featuring the seductive vocals of Lily Garcia.

2Brainz drop an atmospheric slab of next with 'Space jam', which focuses on breakbeat layering and choppage and is then accompanied by the futuristic, sci-fi funk of Zsonic's frenetic stepper, 'Assassin Droid'. 'We're Reggae' by Redshift bookends the album perfectly with an epic percussive festival of dub effects and rolling breaks with the focus bringing atmospherics for your mind and your feet.

The 'Worldwide Jungle Vibe' album showcases just how far the original London based genre has spread across the world, and now that it has reached it's 21st anniversary of it's peak, it doesn't appear to ave lost any momentum in creativity or influence on new artists. A welcome to any serious jungle/oldskool/D&B head out there.

'Worldwide Jungle Vibe' is available to download for free from the Inner Minds Recordings Bandcamp page now (or you can donate however much you feel it's worth to support future projects), so be sure to get yourself a copy of these 12 tracks of breakbeat and bassline bliss!!! _____________________________________________________________________________

Beat Rapist - Shotgun Shells & Greedy Pimps [Free 11 Track Album!!!]

1/ Shotgun Shells & Greedy Pimps.
2/ LSD & Lasers.
3/ Whistles & Amphetamines.
4/ Angels Fell.
5/ Real Deal.
6/ How We Roll.
7/ Original BadBoy.
8/ 666 The Beast Cometh.
9/ Low Life.
10/ Lysergic Acid Diethylamide = Fucked.
11/ Pills & Amphet.

After close to a year in the making, the Beat Rapist has completed his second free album of heavy-as-hell, apocalyptic jungle beats. It is now time to prepare your eardrums for the sub-bass bothering 'Shotgun Shells & Greedy Pimps'...

The album begins with the self-titled ''Shotgun Shells & Greedy Pimps', combining Beat Rapist's trademark pitched down amen breaks, heavyweight basslines, apocalyptic horns ('Egyptian'!) and gangsta rap sampleage to show that this album isn't going to be an easygoing ride. 'LSD & Lasers' up next  adds an electrifying stab melody to ruffneck 'Think' breaks and amen edits and classic oldskool hardcore vocals proclaiming that things are about to go 'HARDCORE!!!'

The rave continues with the use of crowd samples, MC Mad P quotes and one killer 'hands-in-the-air' oscillator riff on 'Whistles & Amphetamines' before we start our descent into the dark zone on the moody, machine-gunfire hardcore-junglism of 'Angels Fell'. Due to all of the dark and moody jungle featured on the album, it could be easily mistaken that the Beat Rapist may lack a sense of humor? However that fact can easily be debunked by catching the totally unexpected, and 'fish out of water' appearance of a certain "MC" David Dickinson on the darkside 'The Real Deal'.

'How We Roll' incorporates Chuck D and junglist MC shout outs over rolling, yet heavy amen breaks and air horns to capture the energy of sweaty jungle raves perfectly before 'Original Badboy' returns to '92 by adding a classic one-finger 'Landlord' piano melody to the mix alongside 'Original badboy rolling'  and 'Selector to hot for real!' MC GQ rave shoutouts.

We then go a little deeper on the eerily atmospheric and sci-fi styled '666 The Bast Cometh' before phasing into dark jungle territory with the classic Blowfly, 'Sesame Street' break meets evil Reese bass and mentasm snippets of 'Lowlife'. 
'Lysergic Acid Diethylamide = Fucked' drops frenetically chopped up amen breaks alongside blaring bass riffs and 'drugs' dialogue snippets before we close with with 'Pills & Amphet', Beat Rapist's breaks, bass and stab-heavy tribute to the days of hardcore. 

'Shotgun Shells & Greedy Pimps' is a short at only 34 minutes, but heavyweight distillation of the authentic Beat Rapist sound, as well as a snapshot into a time when the soundtrack of moody and intimidating hardcore and jungle raves was the TRUE sound of the underground.

Shotgun Shells & Greedy Pimps is available to download for free from Beat Rapist's Soundcloud page (just click on the download tab to get your free tracks), so be sure to crack them up and give your neighbors nightmares!!! :D

[DEEPIN017] Xian Juan - Copious Ganja / Tha Funk [Available From All Good Digital Stores Now!!!]

1/ Copious Ganja.
2/ Tha Funk.

The Deep In The Jungle Records camp return from their latest jungle expedition to bring you two massive slabs of fresh dancefloor destruction from Colorado based junglist Xian Juan.

Xian Juan drops a ten-tonne, amen-break driven, herbalist anthem in the form of 'Copious Ganja', chick full of tearing choppage, thundering basslines and perfectly laid out sensimilla based vocal samplage. A call to arms for all ganja smokers and junglists alike.

With 'Tha Funk' on the flipside, Xian takes us back to the jump up jungle glory days of 1996 (before things got outta hand with the cheesly wobble basslines!!!), by incorporating classic rap vocals with heavy, stepping breaks, infectious funky bass and jazzy trumpet flares proving that the term 'jump up' doesn't have to be a negative one.

Xian Juan provides two massive jungle anthems essential for any dancefloor based DJ set, or to just blare out your car stereo on a sunny day.

Receiving support from jungle heavyweights DJ Storm, Ray Keith, DJ Monk, Billy Daniel Bunter and Vinyl Junkie, Xian Juan's 'Copious Ganja / Tha Funk' is available from the following digital stores and many more...
