Another month rolls on past which means only one thing…Hex returns with the usual selection of beats and bass. New music inside from Dedman, Break, Myselor, Artsea, Jaise, Soul Intent, Pacific and many more!
Canadian duo Levrige team up with Mystic state for today’s premiere! Deep, head-nodder vibes with tasty jungle beat-inflections and a hint of UKG in the vocal cuts – wicked stuff. Hit up Bandcamp to grab this one right now; full release coming May 21st.
High energy selections from one of Scotland’s best DJs as we welcome Anikonik to the Dojo decks! As a resident selector for Electrikal and Junglism, Kara has built a fearsome reputation playing to big crowds both North and South of the border, and we’re expecting to hear big things over the coming years as she hones her production skills under the EQ50 Mentorship program with the mighty RAM Records.
Her Dojo mix delves deep in the crates, blending classic selections, hidden gems and up to the minute bangers across dark tech, jungle-tinged steppers and heavy neurofunk…serious business. As always you can check out the mix via Soundcloud below or head to Youtube or iTunes to stream. You can also grab a download from Google Drive.
Johnathan Thomas continues his run of collabs with a new EP on Brighton imprint SmallPrint Recordings this month, and we’ve got the premiere of Recent Strains! JT joins forces with RaptorHandz and Danky for a 3-way studio throwdown and the result is a compelling blend of halftime beats, spooky pads and tinges of jungle. Wicked stuff – look out for this coming May 7th!
Loomis doing what he does best on today’s exclusive, dialling up the atmosphere with a super deep, jungle-tinged remix for John Rolodex! This is out now on Bandcamp and Spotify as part of the MACH X 02 EP, with full release dropping tomorrow.
Hex returns to the Dojo decks with an hour of brand new beats! Fresh tracks inside from NC-17 & Dauntless, Don Piper, Flava D, Villem & Alpha Rhythm and many more, plus dubs from Shudder and The Faraday.
With one foot firmly planted in his own forward-thinking spin on hardcore and the other toeing the edge of a nascent jungle sound in the 1993 track Worlds of Confusion, Eze-G is underrated in my book. Just one of multiple aliases under which Gareth Oxby produced a tightly focused range of electronic music, Eze-G’s style fittingly represents a main tenet of what drum & bass has always been about: fusion.
Worlds of Confusion is the standout tune on the EP bearing the same name released by label Unatural Light (the remix of this tune released the following year is also great with a sound even more within the domain of jungle).
Noteworthy in the design is how much depth is added to the song through simple yet effective pitch shifting on the vocal cuts. Original use of the amen break, wispy pads, and enlivening vocal samples all come together to form a unique experience smack dab in the middle of hardcore and jungle – don’t miss it!

The brainchild of Soul Intent, Lossless Music began life as many such artist-run labels do – as an outlet for Alex’s own productions. That changed in a big way from 2016 onwards, as Lossless began to welcome other artists to the roster both on the main imprint and two other sub-labels – Exkursions, for more leftfield D&B, and Dope Plates for old-school jungle and rave-tinged outings.
Whether it’s his own work or that of other producers, the label trifecta has gone from strength to strength and shows no sign of stopping. Read on for five of our favourites from the Lossless vaults…
Spring rolls around and Hex is back on the decks with the usual monthly selection, this time featuring new music from Monika & Akuratyde, Evolved, Kray, Subp Yao, Krypta, Break and many more!
