With a whole load more in the pipeline plus the brand new Perception EP and a imminent free LP on the way, make sure to keep tabs on 36 Hertz pushing the 'Flashback' sound kick started by DJ Vapour's 1992' back in Winter 2012, Indigo Virus has popped up on a few 36 Hertz releases and now unleashes 4 tracks that will take you back to the halcyon days of Sy Kick, rave ear Prodigy and the raw Jungle Tekno sound of labels like Reinforced circa 92, pre order this goodness!!!!

We're very pleased and most grateful to Bright Lights & QPA for letting us host another great free track, a slice of cyber brilliance from bright Lights up for free download on our cloud, check it out!!!
Future Wildstyle, the producer behind the lush Liquid Jungle Breaks of 'Vanish' a couple of years back has just put up this dope remix of Fono's 'Real Joy', like they say and we agree, the original is a great slice of house music with remixes from the likes of the awesome Chris Lake among others, this is a nice breakbeat driven re rub though, we're definitely feeling this one!!!
This 3rd and final instalment of the 'Rumblisms' series on Kut Off really goes in full throttle, ever wondered what tearout bass/breaks sounds like at 150BPM? Check out the pounding amen break laced epicness of 'Hold Fire' then catch your breath just long enough to take in 'Give Me A Break' another breaks monster which ain't messin round bruv!!!! Out on all good download stores 15/06/15
2 150BPM Future Jungle rollers on the darker DnB vibed edge of the spectrum, Pixel needs no introduction, with previous releases on the likes of Fokuz Recordings and a debut Future Jungle EP on Top Drawer Digital last year, Pixel gives us 'Tinnitus' a hard hitting slice of Drumfunk as a taster for his forthcoming LP for Boomsha. Blood's 'Watching You' certainly shows off this producer's talent, making great company for 'Tinnitus', an equally hard hitting track with great drum edits, 2 tracks to tear things up in your DJ sets!!!
Here's another great track from Amiga Breaks, this time on Kode 5, warm dreamy and summery all rolled into one, lush keys compliment a true old skool breakbeat, really, you just couldn't get more oldskool (in the rave sense) than this 6min 35sec of joyous and uplifting sounds

Among the things we rather ashamedly never imagined happening is a oldskool themed release from the awesome Nest HQ, previously this label has put out releases from the likes of SPY and is generally a hub for great sounds all of which are free to download but lets just say this our favourite release from the label to date, take a listen, get downloading and get lost in the oldskool!!!
Footwork/Juke/Bass/Jungle dons The Renegades are offering up 6 days of free downloads including reissues of older tracks and a few dope bootys too, heres the first 3, keep checking back for the next 3 on their soundcloud
I first heard Timo's music around about 2011 while listening to DJ Gaffer's Sunday evening show on Nu Rave Radio, he played this track a pure slice of 92' breakbeat hardcore and I had to ask for the ID, since then I've been fortunate to hear and play many tracks by DJ Fuzzbuzz/Amiga Breaks and its with great pleasure I review this full LP by him due out this Monday 08/06/15 on Dark Til Dawn. In keeping with Timo's style, we are treated to a diverse range of sounds from OldSkool Hardcore to Jungle and 4 Beat/Happy Hardcore, there's no shortage of those trademark sweeping euphoric chords and warm detuned piano on tracks like 'Round Trip' and 'Oldskool Daze', things get darker on tracks like 'Time To Die' but on each of the 10 tracks here, you can hear the sound of a man who has the Oldskool bug, that feeling that you can't really describe, the best I can come up with is 'warm', its when you hear one of those rushy pianos or bleepy techno riffs combined with the sped up breakbeats and it's that feeling you will experience listening to this excellent album, check out the preview below mixed by QPA's Bright Lights and get ready for the essential Oldskool experience from 08/06/15
