Rua’s talent for signing exciting releases from artists at the cross-section between D&B, jungle, halftime and other bass music influences continues on today’s exclusive as we present the premiere of Lynch Kingsley & Neve’s Deadly! Blending dub vocals, deep bass, skittering breaks and a halftime backbeat, this is pure slow-fast euphoria; proper head-nodder! Look for this on vinyl and digital from June 29th alongside three other sick new beats from Lynch…

Lynch Kingsley – Mute Bliss [The Dreamers]

Lynch Kingsley is back with two more fantastic slices of his crossover footwork-jungle badness for Italian clubnight-cum-record label The Dreamers, and once again is funky-ass choppage at it’s finest.

Whether it’s on the frantic vibes of Mute Bliss or the slightly more laid-back halftime syncopations of Secret Dream, Lynch’s latest work finds him on fine form once again! Check out the clips below and grab yourself some tasty breakbeat business from your favourite digital outlet.

Lynch Kingsley & Block Mameli – Swinging Flavors #2 [Beat Machine]

Beat Machine continue their Swinging Flavors 7″ series with a cracking new Jungle/Footwork crossover from Lynch Kingsley & Block Mameli. From the hypnotic eastern-tinged string lick to the strong ragga vocal from Mameli the tune just oozes character, and we’re big fans of the syncopated beat structure that Lynch has been honing across his releases over the last few years.

Over on the flip Hungarian-born but now US-based DJ MADD flips the tune around, keeping the central character but taking the riddim in a different direction with elements of dub, socca and trap working their way into the mix for a slightly more laid back vibe. Another wicked entry in what’s proving to be a really innovative series from Beat Machine; check out the clips below and hit up their store to grab it on vinyl or digital right now!

Lynch Kingsley – Eden EP [Inperspective]

Lynch Kingsley continues his impressive run of releases with three new tracks for long-running London imprint Inperspective. The results are outstanding, taking the musicality of Lynch’s work to a new level while retaining the tasty break chopping that has always characterised his beats.

Vision of Suffering kicks things off with a dark, moody take on old school jungle-tinged techstep; eerie pads, heavy breaks and massive sub hits drive this one along nicely. The track manages to maintain a threatening vibe without ever veering into more tearout territory and the crunchy drum work really makes it stand out.

Minutes of Silence continues in a similar vein, with a beautiful guitar lick intro giving way to frenetic break chopping business. Last but not least, Eden touches down with huge distorted bass hits and helter-skelter drums that veer in and out of the mix at breakneck pace. The second half sees the tune drop into a serene, ambient breakdown before switching things up into less angsty drumfunk riddims for a really tidy progression.

The drum programming on show here is top notch from start to finish; fans of Mako, Paradox and Photek should be all over this. You can pick the EP up right now via the Inperspective Bandcamp page so check out the clips and go grab a copy!

Q&A – Lynch Kingsley

Lynch Kingsley’s footwork-fusion style of D&B has impressed us massively here at the Dojo since we first came across him via last year’s excellent Make Your Love EPNaturally when we heard of new material for London’s Flexout Audio we had to get the inside scoop! With that in mind we tracked down the Italian producer for a quick chat about his new EP and how his unique style has come together.
