Intricate drum programming and acidic funk undertones on this one…old school hypnosis of the very best kind. Watch out for this coming on BYSP’s Yukon Punch label from Nov 5th, on vinyl and digital.
Soul Trader boss Surplus lands in our guest mix hotseat with a whopping 2 and a half hours of classic jungle! Digging deep in the collection this 93-95 vinyl mix takes in legendary tracks from Foul Play, Bukem, Krust, Q Project, Danny Breaks, Roni Size and many many more…vintage breakbeat selections.
Old school amen danger on today’s premiere as Heatwave returns to AGN7! Taken from his debut album, Get Down channels classic D&B and jungle influences into a towering sonic inferno of chopped breaks and dark reese basslines. Deadly stuff; look out for the Echoes LP coming August 13th at digital stores!

Sometimes we get sent music that just does exactly what it says on the tin. We present to you the gloriously named Stabby McStabface from Dark Ops. 100% stabby! Hit up the Skeleton Recordings Bandcamp to grab this one right now.
Dedman’s latest EP sees him follow a string of releases for Lost, Parallel Depth and his own imprint Subconscious Audio with perhaps his strongest work to date via Melinki’s label Four Corners Music.
Inspired by the legendary Blue Note sessions run by Metalheadz (though somewhat indirectly – Dedman was only born two years after the events began), the tracks showcase a confidence unusual for a producer as young as 24. From the up-front floor-filling sounds of Ash & Pallor and Lead, via the dark depths of Dreidle and the drumfunk atmospheres of Sail Away, finishing up with the halftime dread of the title track, there’s certainly variety to be found here.
There’s also a refreshingly old-school style to the production, with crunchy breakbeats and grimy distortion rather than laser snares and harsh digital harmonics. Nice to see that sound still has traction with the younger artists as well as the pipe & slippers crew! Check out the clips below and hit up Beatport or Bandcamp to grab a copy now.
Breakbeat technician SR teams up with Vinyl Junkie on today’s exclusive, rocking some seriously funky drum programming on a cut from his new Squat Rave LP for Locked Up Music. Hypnotic lead melodies, booming sub, crispy breaks and a cheeky Wu-Tang sample; what’s not to love? Hit up the Locked Up bandcamp to grab this one right now on vinyl or digital!
J Plates lands on In Reach Records with an old-school banger in the form of Witness! Chunky breaks and an infectious hook paired with rapid sub punches makes for a tasty combination; check it out below and watch out for the EP coming May 15th!
That vintage jungle sound on today’s premiere as GY96 drops a brand new release. Vintage synths and outboard gear power a tune which sounds exactly that – vintage. Check it out and hit up Bandcamp to grab a copy right now.
Heavy hitting break-smashing business from Sicknote on today’s premiere for Locked Up Music!
