Chase & Status – RTRN II JUNGLE

Chase & Status’s ambitious new RTRN II JUNGLE project is gathering pace just now, and the latest news to emerge comes by way of a 10 minute documentary explaining the concept and nature of the project. Not content with merely returning to the roots of the sound, the team are going a step further and have travelled to Jamaica to record original roots and dancehall records that they can then sample in order to create original jungle music.

As ways to celebrate 15 years of a musical project and the influences of the sound that gave them a career go, we think you’ll agree this is pretty damn exciting! Give the video a watch below and look out for the first single dropping Wed 29th…

Sinistarr – Swinging Flavors #6 [Beat Machine]

US experimental beatsmith Sinistarr steps up with the latest for Beat Machine’s excellent run of Swinging Flavors 7″ releases, serving up an infectious take on the footwork-infused D&B sound. As with most of Sinistarr’s best work this one is all in the drums, with some wicked percussive fills giving the tune little bursts of extra energy.

As with previous instalments of the series the label have commissioned a big remix and this time it’s Om Unit who delivers it under his recently revived Philip D. Kick alias. Adding some extra drive in the bassline and a jungle-y feel in the drum section, this is an extra layer of icing on an already excellent sonic cake.

Last but by no means least, Sinistarr delivers a digital bonus replete with skittering drum patterns and wobbly sub bass textures on Clear Your Mind. Three wicked tracks from a series (and indeed a label) that has yet to disappoint us here at Dojo HQ! Check it out below and hit up the Beat Machine Bandcamp to grab it on vinyl or digital now.
