WELCOME TO THE JUNGLIST MASSIVE, WE'VE GOT FUN N GAMES: 2017 Rolling Drum and Bass/Jungle/Liquid/Neurofunk/170

This was fun last year, let's do it again.

The new Klute album Read Between the Lines is fantastic, it came out last Friday and covers a lot of ground stylistically, as Klute usually does.

The Telomic EP Compelled is a fun listen, a little atmospheric.

I don't think you can listen to dnb in 2017 and avoid hearing "Trunk" by Alibi and MC Coppa. It's everywhere, but I still listen to it on repeat for half an hour once or twice a week.

DRS, Patife, and Vangeliez put out "I Will" early enough to ensure that it gets constant rotation this summer. If the last DJ on the last night of Sun and Bass doesn't close with that tune I'm going to have Questions for them.

New albums by Mr Joseph and Jam Theives that I've yet to check out, plus an EP of VIPs by Digital and a new Phace EP. Good year so far.

Anyone have any recommendations yet?

ASC continues fine run of form. At the very fringes of the genre, though...

^oh yes, what a sound and what an era. Dominic Angus is a badman.

yes, having lived through it i have a real soft spot for that era and i really doubt i will hear anything this year that affects me in the same way

that said i'm always down for new stuff from cosmic bridge

this is interesting

I like that Yally track, dark and spooky. Great minimal breaks too.
The ASC tune is cool but probably not a dancefloor filler.

I'm surprised to actually really like the new Goldie tune "Prism". It came up on spotify without my knowing who it was by and I was surprised. (And it sent me into a Goldie rabbithole for a couple of hours... There's a great e-comp on Spotify that gathers all of his early Ruffige stuff on Reinforced.)

haha i am listening to that spotify comp at this very second

That Yally is a good find. Wee hint of Omio Trio Volume 2 in there!

hey that goldie track is pretty cool

oh man, someone link to that Goldie Spotify comp? I gotta hear that, my old skool knowledge is sorely lacking.

Just heard a track from a new Calibre album. Does this guy put out three albums every year , or what? I thought Shelflife 4 was his last, but Spotify has two more between, unless there's a different Calibre with Diane Charlemagne on a track.

that caliber tune is very, uh, smooth

the late great, Saturday, 15 April 2017 16:55 (one month ago) Permalink

i mean if you're going to get that smooth why not go all the way?

by the way not sure where to post this but the a1 of that is an amazingly good broken beat track

the late great, Saturday, 15 April 2017 23:14 (one month ago) Permalink

That Calibre rework is amazing. I love the 170 underpinning the slow waltz feel.

Really enjoying the new Seba tune, A-side is great too:

Cop Envy - Balanced

Second release on Cry Baby Records, I really liked their Dan White release from last year. This would probably sit well next to Yally.

Alix swaps his nuclear hip hop concrete style of late, which has been quite fun, example below...

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=C9e43Ok-L68

For something in an altogether more traditional rolling liquid funk style. Nobody does this better except maybe Mr Calibre above...

I'm a little surprise I hadn't already heard about a new Perez/Spectrasoul EP, but good looking out article don.

I heard a track in a mix that I liked by Dirtbag, I think the name was Blue Water or something, but it hasn't been released or even signed yet. Posting this here to remind myself to look out for it >.>

reissue alert

Nice, I love that DJ Hype track. Hopefully we'll start hearing some of those tracks getting more play with younger DJs who maybe didn't have a chance to buy jungle 12"s in 1994?

Really can't recommend this Essential Mix highly enough. Tour de force.

Haven't gotten to that Camo & Krooked mix, but I guess there's a new Urbandawn track on it? Def going to check it out today.
