Morphy & Skitty Remixes [Foundation X]

Foundation X have always been a reliable outlet for old-school, jungle-tinged D&B and their latest 12″ delivers that in spades as they dish up two cracking remixes of classics from the label’s vault.

Spirit steps up on the A side, switching up the breaks on Morphy’s dubbed out masterpiece Put Down Your Guns. The energy of the original is definitely retained but the chaos in the drums is dialled back a notch in favour of that reliable Spirit groove, letting the track really sizzle.

A similarly subtle relick comes on the flip side, with X Nation switching the drums up from Hornsman’s original full rolling jungle into a dubby halftime head nodder. The iconic horns of the original are present and correct set to a more pulsing, tribal riddim; espect this to turn some heads in the rave.

As always you can grab this on strictly limited vinyl from the Foundation X Bandcamp. Go grab it now!

Premiere: Subreachers & Bassdubbers – Again Son

Our first premiere of 2018 comes from the Tesseract Recordings crew and Belgian producers Subreachers & Bassdubbers. Again Son features a heavy hitting bassline with hints of the early dubstep sound with skittering jungle snares layered over a halftime backbeat. Snatches of ragga vocals echo through the mix to finish off the stark, dubbed out vibe of this track; wicked tune. The EP drops Sunday at Bandcamp with other platforms following from 2nd Feb.

TMSV – Fission Chips [RUA Sound]

Few labels in recent memory have started as strong as RUA Sound. Their first release featured future jungle heavyweights Sully and Sam Binga and unsurprisingly sold out in no time at all (c’mon guys, repress…) so we were more than a little pleased to hear of a follow up from promising upstart TMSV.

Continuing RUA’s quest to unearth the best genre-bending sounds from the bleeding edge of the 170BPM spectrum, we’re treated to two weighty cuts with more than enough muscle for the dancefloor but plenty of playful experimentation to boot. Fission Chips kicks things off with an 8-bit grime hook, rapid footwork-style hats and hypnotic arpeggios set to a hefty slab of sub bass pressure; proper head nodding business.

Over on the flip things take on more of a dub/jungle vibe, with classic reggae sounds mixed with a sparse beat and some super tasty snare rolls. Yes please! Another fine release from a label we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on; check it out below and hit up Redeye or Kudos to grab the wax right now.
