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!!!

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!!!

Bay B Kane-25 To Life LP [Boomsha Recordings]

Bay B Kane's '25 To Life' LP on Boomsha represents a huge milestone in the career of the legendary Jungle producer and sound engineer and another massive chapter in the history of Boomsha recordings, totaling 15 tracks which include a remix of the anthem 'No Solar' by X E Dos, you would forgive this writer for perhaps 'gushing' a bit but this album truly is an opus of timeless beats, its really hard to know where to start really when describing the quality of what is on offer so I'll say this, if at any point in the 25 or so year history of what we know as Jungle, you have been a fan and if you know Bay B Kane's sound well then be rest assured you are in for a musical treat of beat mastery, a range of emotions and thoughts conveyed through finely crafted sounds that truly breathe a life of their own, that move from the subtlest and most sublime sounds to darker and more brooding vibes with brilliance. Sure, there are countless tunes that sound good in a mix but this is a true album, you can play it, you can mix with it and you can also sit back and listen at home from start to finish and you DEFINITELY need this in your collection.

SONARS GHOST- AKA Volume 2

Sonars Ghost has been making music since 1991 evolving through hardcore to jungle & DnB under various aliases, many of which are featured here, you get some classic old skool hardcore under the R Core alias, some of which popped up on the 2 Hungry Ghosts blog a couple of years, tracks like 'Tribute To SUAD' showcase the early beginnings of what would later become DnB with light melodic pads, 'Going Home' takes a haunting vocal and merges chopped up breakbeats in a very Metalheadz like track, 'My Enemys Enemy' is pure old skool hardcore, euphoric and uplifting. 'Taking Hits' is a trip to the darkside back in 93/94, under his Romero alias we get a jazzy liquid funk 95 style roller with sweet pads, horns and percussion, The Army Of Ghosts Remix of Soza'a 'Understand The Process' is a classic timeless jungle opening with a urgent intro before dropping into some killer amen tearout, we also get 3 tracks under the Regression Sessions alias, the searing and swooping 'Last Dark Thought', the bleep n bass style 'Show You 89' and 'Show You VIP', lastly, Argento's 'The Hidden VIP' takes things into the late 90s with some tough drumfunk with elements of light and dark perfectly fused together, this whole EP is a blueprint of how it was back in the day, a sound that can truly never be beaten or imitated.

DJ MARK C- Look behind The Moon- Kode 5 Recordings

Mark C has a unique take on the oldskool/nuskool sound, renowned for some of the most twisted and insanely infectious voyages into broken beats on labels like Rinse Repeat, Paranoid & Kode 5. This fresh offering on Kode 5 goes down a dark, techno influenced minimalist route with nicely layered drums, kind of a Defender-'Feel It' for 2014, a cavernous gut wrenching trip to the darkside and we love it!!!

Exclusive Interview & Guest Mix From DJ Abyss [Switchblade Digital]

If you haven't heard tracks from the Switchblade Digital imprint yet, then you've been missing out on some of the finest old skool style jungle tracks around, we caught up with label owner Abyss for a chat, he also very kindly put together an exclusive free mix for us too..... 


1.Tell us a little bit about yourself for the uninitiated

Well, I just recently turned 36 (Yikes!) I have been around the scene since day 1. I got my first set of decks in 1994, some lovely Soundlab DLP1 belt drives, lol. Being able to mix on those was a skill in itself! I had a Made2Fade GM25 mixer to go with them. I always remember having to replace the crossfader every few months, either they were very poorly made, or I was a bit too eager with my cutting and chopping (Probably the latter, lol)

2.When did you get the Hardcore/Jungle bug? What was the defining tune/moment that drew you into the
scene?

Well, it all started for me with 'Humanoid - Stakker Humanoid' back in 1988. It was just the energy of that track, and sounds that I'd never heard before in music. I still to this day occasionally turn all the lights off in the room, put headphones on nice and loud, go onto Youtube and watch the original music video on full screen. (Try it, it's a real trippy experience!) Of course in the coming years I listened to all The Prodigy tracks and loved them (Saw them live in 1994 in my hometown, it was a wicked night!) Pretty soon after some mates got me listening to some pirate radio in 1993. The station was called PCRS and based in Southampton. The DJ I used to listen to was called Mr E. I remember his mixing being very questionable, but it opened me up to a whole new sound. The darkcore of 1993 was something else that was new and it really got me hooked. I started buying mixtapes from the two underground music shops in town, namely 'Movement Records' and 'Tripp 2 Records'. Whilst in there I would see all the local DJs buying vinyl and would recognise the tracks from the mixtapes I bought. It wasn't long before I was buying records too and listening to them on my Hi-Fi at home, lol. I probably had about 100 records before I got my first set of decks!

3.And what/who influenced you to start producing tracks?

Back in 2008 I started trying to produce some D&B, mainly because I was DJing D&B on an internet radio station (Headrush Live D&B) and thought it would be cool to have a bash at making my own tracks and putting them in the mix. The results were ok, but very basic. I soon got bored with the sound too. I didn't like the direction D&B was heading. I then stumbled across DJ FX playing some oldskool on Subbass FM. This brought me back to my roots and I rediscovered my passion for that classic 90's sound! I started making music like the music I loved back then. It was an easy transition for me, and the tracks started to flow.

4.You've had releases on Kode 5 Recordings and also started up your own label 'Switchblade Digital' where you are now putting out your own tracks and signing new artists, again, what inspired you to take these steps?

Yep, Kode 5 are a great bunch of lads and put out my first 'Oldskool' tracks. I remember at the time just thinking how cool it was having my music on places like iTunes etc. It was a dream come true. Pretty soon I stopped DJing and concentrated on producing. I started my label 'Switchblade Digital' early this year. I saw it as another challenge. I wanted to leave my own imprint on the music scene. I wanted to do a label a bit different to the others. A slightly darker sound, like the 1993 style that drew me in all those years ago! That's why you won't find any 'Piano anthems' on my label. Just mostly dark and mean, lol. I get all my releases mastered by the same engineer, so they all have their distinctive quality finish to them. I use Jon Doe (CLSM) to master all the Switchblade releases. With 20 years in the game, and hundreds of releases, he knows his stuff!

5. When selecting tunes for your label, what do you look for?

Tracks that are well produced, and had time spent on them. I'm sure I could churn out 3 tracks a day if I wanted to, but to me they really stand out as being rushed and sound shoddy. I'm not really a fan of the 140bpm jungle either. I like the authentic 160ish bpm like it was back in the mid nineties! Nothing against
the guys (& girls) that produce those tracks, but it's just not the fitting for this label. Anything with a decent break and bass works for me :)

6.And what can we expect in the coming future from Switchblade Digital and yourself?

Well we have a great track coming soon called 'Missing' by Beatgem. It's a track that was originally produced in 1994 on an Amiga, but never released. Beatgem has a couple of these tracks that he has up on Youtube, and he has a bit of a following because of them! You can't get any more Of an authentic 90's sound than that! We are still a new label, but growing nicely. Only more great music to come. I am also contemplating a special one off vinyl release sometime in the future. Keep on the look out for that one ;)

7.Now you've done this rather fine mix featured here below, tell us a bit about that

Well, I wanted to put all my favourite tracks into a mix. Some have been released and some are exclusives. I hope people like the tracks. Feedback is always appreciated, without it we can never improve...

8.Lastly, any final words, big ups & shout outs?

I would like to thank anyone that still supports the scene today. I think the Oldskool scene has had a real revitalisation in the past year or two, which is fantastic. It's always good to see the younger generation appreciating the old 90's sounds too. In the immortal words of Q Bass 'Hardcore Will Never Die!'

DJ Abyss has dropped an exclusive mix of current and forthcoming tracks from the label, you can check it out here:
