Year In Review 2014

looking back at 2014 I would view it in a positive manner, perhaps the key phrase has been 'quality over quantity' 2 years ago, it seemed like the 140/Future Jungle/Jungle Breaks sound was peaking, it was getting good exposure on the internet and the breaks section of many popular download stores was full of Future Jungle not just from dedicated labels and artists but even by others who had taken an interest and were experimenting with the sound. A special mention has to go to Boomsha Recordings established in 2012, the label has gone from strength to strength and in the last year gave us full artist LPs from Bay B Kane, DJ Aitch & Schoco that truly are landmarks for the scene. Since 2012 things have quietened down somewhat, its true but the overall quality of production has stayed strong and a steady flow of good muisc has come from stalwarts like Top Drawer Digital, Warehouse Wax, Bad Habit Muzik, Sub Slayers and notable others, the scene is still healthy, we reached over 1k organic followers on our facebook page and our soundcloud has gone well over 9k plays and countless downloads, a massive thanks to all who have contributed to this and to everyone who has featured here on the blog. This was also the year the Radiokillaz had a guest mix of full on Future Jungle on 1Xtra, So a fairly short and concise year in review, I'd like to mention some of my favourite tunes of 2014

Myk Dubz, Path Generator & lily Garcia-The Pressure [Boomsha Recordings]

From the jazzy intro to the slow building half time mid section through to the 150BPM Hip Hop influenced Future Jungle that takes us to the end of this 6 minute sonic journey, this should go down as one of the finest moments of Future Jungle in this writer's opinion, my words won't truly do it justice, it has to be heard to be appreciated.

Strange Rollers- Dance With Me [Warehouse Wax Music]
A year in review just wouldn't be complete without mention of Strange Rollers, taken from the excellent multi genre 'Outrageous EP', slick piano rave meets 140 Jungle in a mighty soundclash!!!

Beagle-Makkathran [Top Drawer Digital]

This track fits perfectly into the TDD style, a dark opus of subtle stabs and amens from one of the scene's hidden gems, the ever so talented Beagle

Curious-Sky High [Bad Habit Muzik]

Simply a massive tune tune from Curious, rolling 140 Jungle with infectious pads, anthem status!!!!

King Yoof-Soundboy Love [Sub Slayers]

King Yoof turns out yet another amazing track with the dub reggae 140 Jungle vibes of 'Soundboy Love', a timeless summery riddim

There were plenty more highlights in 2014, once again, big ups to every artist, label, DJ, promoter and fan who has supported the scene this year!!!

Schoco - Blind / Synaptic Overload (Free EP Download) [Boomsha Recordings]

Its been another outstanding year for Boomsha Recs with artist LPs from Schoco, DJ Aitch & Bay B Kane, as we head towards 2015 they have made this great 2 tracker by Schoco free to download and download you should!!!

The Rumblist- Crackin' The Code [Bad Habit Muzik]

The Rumblist makes his debut on Bad Habit Muzik with a couple of beefy offerings, to utilise the vernacular of my school days 'its well 'ard mate, it'd 'ave your Dad in a fight!!!' Narcissist Beats runs at a house tempo but bangs like a bass filled beast while Take Control is a tough tearout number, the L.A legend Curious remixes both tracks in dope Future Jungle fashion, you better get an ice pack for your old mans shiner, bosh!!!

DJ Curious?- Neva Be Mine [Bad Habit Muzik]

Quality dubwise Future Jungle from L.A don, DJ Curious builds up the fire round a looped Lindy Layton vocal with bouncing breaks and ragga style pads while The Rumblist gives his own unique tough tearout style refix on the flipside, bigness!!!!


Sparki Dee - The Old Skool Experience Album

One of the hardest working producers in the scene, Sparki Dee has had releases on Kode 5, Hardcore Lives and Climactic Recs, produces in a wide range of styles but has always had love for the old skool sound of the early 90s, you can download his 10 track free LP which takes us through the spectrum of back to 88/89 warehouse/acid to full on breakcore taking in atmospheric jungle and Ron Wells inspired Jungle Tekno along the way, you really would be mad not to grab a copy of this great LP!!!

Hornsey Hardcore 002

There was a sound in the early 90s that you could call proto hardcore born out of the Brit Hop and Bleep N Bass scene around about 1991, Hornsey Hardcore a.k.a Jerome Hill brings 2 killer cuts of classic chopped up breaks, bleeps, bloops and ravey madness and musicality in the form of 'Get Busy' & 'Pressure'. Get ready to be transported to a hedonistic and innovative time with the hi octane beats on offer, sounding like they came straight from a DJ Hype set from back in the day and if you're a vinylist, you will definitely want to snatch up some fresh wax, for more info on purchasing check the link: 

PowerDress - Torture (Pirate Jams Remix)

While the original is a great vocal Nu Disco track in it's own right, Pirate Jams bring that special something with a 130BPM  breakbeat piano rave rework that will be playing out in your head for months, I know ever since hearing for the first time I have not been able to get it out of my head and I'm very pleased to share the news that its now out on release, one listen and I promise you, you will absolutely melt!!!!
