New Release: Jam Thieves - Sativa

One of the few artists on the drum and bass circuit to have really crafted his (yes solo now!) own sound from scratch has to be Jam Thieves and this killer 5 track EP presented by Serial Killaz is certainly testament to the ability to be both instantly recognisable and bloody good at the same time.

The ‘Sativa’ EP kicks your block off straight away with menacing chords and drums typical of this level of production. You will notice little cheeky stabs and effects all over the place which no doubt adds to the tension the title track creates plus that ever so wobbling bassline.

‘Paranoia’.. You what mate? Nah, not us. The ‘Simon Says’ sample is pretty god damn demanding here, just make sure you’re not following an MCs request to “sit down, sit down, sit doooooown’ during the drop. Some grand piano licks run forward into ‘Bizness’, complimented by some more snazzy breakbeats and a grotty old bassline with just a touch of distortion making it that perfect accessory to whatever Jam Thieves gets up to under the cover of darkness. ‘Heavy Duty’ has a kind of Robot Wars vibe going on so if you’re still into that kind of thing, it’s the perfect combination of mental destruction and flaming swords but in a musical form.

Closing the doors on the EP, Jam Thieves really went to town with ‘Situation’ and if you really want to appreciate the levels to this track, it’s very important to use some good monitors and a whopping great sub. We don’t mean a 10” either, save that for your pop and bass melodies. Check the vocal sample too while you’re at it.

Want to get serious about upfront jungle music? Cop this.

New Release: Mozey - Criminal Damage Part 1

Mozey back on Serial Killaz? Of course he couldn’t stay away too long, it’s not like we have been ignoring his many calls and texts is it, especially now he’s decided to put down the spray can, make some more killer beats and send them our way.

Harking back to the good old days of decorating train stations, brick walls and the like with various colours of spray paint, Mozey takes us on a trip of ‘Criminal Damage’ with the first in a two part series. Certainly riding on the recent wave of wobbling basslines, both ‘Frica’ and ‘Russian Roulette’ go down the route of frantic LFO digits with the addition of Mozey’s signature arrangements.

You like your beats hard with a bit of a skip in their step? If so, then ‘Frica’ is going straight in your crates. It’s loveable pace combined with an array of melodic bass hits you right in the feels although to be honest, that’s probably not what Mozey was after with this. Just don’t announce it to anyone.

‘Russian Roulette’ is a synth arroracks dream, adding luscious layers to the wonky bassline lead. A potential intro to any 2021 spy movie that you might get away with seeing at the cinema, failing that - just drop it at an illegal rave and hide under the redline.

Welcome back to Serial Killaz Mozey, don’t leave it so long next time!

New Release: Gold Dubs - Junge Is Changing

Gold Dubs have had a very busy year so far and to top it all off - a release on the biggest jungle label in existence. ‘Jungle Is Changing’ is certainly one hell of a bold statement, however, with some serious backing from Serial Killaz, it’s something we are all willing to roll with.

Hopping straight into the Gold Dubs spaceship and straight into oblivion with ‘Distress Call’. One for the hardstep crew with its filtered out breaks and midrange bass notes, a tune that would fit perfectly in both your DJ sets and homemade Sci Fi movies. Cheshire Cat provides some memorable lyrics on ‘Rise Up’, a tasty mix of reggae roots and upfront jungle warfare. Scatty breakbeats fire all kinds of direct shots over the perfectly written chorus which will stay in your head for months to come. Hold tight Fleck on the link up.

‘Now’ is a grotty little roller, pure in its form of providing nothing but filth to the dancefloor. No messing about, straight for the jugular. You really do need to hear this through a big rig, a basement studio or a decent pair of headphones to fully appreciate it. Gilly G, a name you might have heard of? No doubt if you’re a keen reggae fan he’s probably on your hit list already. Good news then as he’s all over ‘Random’, a riddim so tough even that bulletproof vest you’re reaching for is probably of no use.

Final track ‘The Jungle is Changing’ backs up the initial statement. Our music is changing, it’s been through a big 360 degree spin many times, sometimes butchered, sometimes championed and this track demonstrates one form of upfront jungle that reflects both the future and the past. Pull up that shit!
