Today we have a very special free download from Darkhalf, a Detroit influenced 140/Future Jungle roller with a nice half time breakdown towards the end of the track, Darkhalf produces in a variety of styles from DnB to 140 to Hip Hop, he runs Perpetual Recordings and has some great forthcoming releases in the coming months on Music Of Life & Stay On Target Records, this writer simply can't enough of the late night haunting sounds of this great track which is also available to download for free from his soundcloud page along with a great selection of multi genre tracks. Darkhalf was introduced to the 140 sound via Bay B Kane as he says himself "140 is something new I am exploring a lot at the moment. I am remixing and making tracks for someone major right now, a label that defined a lot of what we hear now and although I have always been into the Drum n Bass and Jungle side of things, I feel this is a great genre to explore other possibilities. Not only that, but I get to take it back to when I was a late teenager and incorporate sounds from that day and put them into something more futuristic. It was Bay B Kane that introduced me to 140, he remixed a track that Terminus and I wrote together and it completely took me back in awe. The room you get to work with is outstanding and the possibilities with the break edits are unreal! Always been a B Boy by heart, I can feel already the effect this music has had on me. I can see this music attracting not just the junglist but also the B Boys out there that really don't have much music to break too. In this day and age you can also incorporate many other 140 based styles of music into Future Jungle and not as many producers do that as much these days in the normal standard Jungle you hear today! I am very nostalgic and welcome 140/ Future Jungle with open arms" Big ups to Darkhalf, we look forward to hearing more 140 Jungle beats from him!!!!
