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.

the article don, Sunday, 9 April 2017 23:19 (nine months ago) Permalink

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

adam, Monday, 10 April 2017 18:13 (nine months ago) Permalink

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

the article don, Monday, 10 April 2017 18:33 (nine months ago) Permalink

hey that goldie track is pretty cool

the late great, Monday, 10 April 2017 18:52 (nine months ago) Permalink

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

^ got that playing now while I help clean house for a newly adopted rabbit. Old skool stuff is so great.

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.

Calibre tune in question

that caliber tune is very, uh, smooth

the late great, Saturday, 15 April 2017 16:55 (nine months ago) Permalink

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


the late great, Saturday, 15 April 2017 23:13 (nine months ago) Permalink

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 (nine months 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:
and also this from a year ago

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.

MikoMcha, Thursday, 27 April 2017 05:10 (eight months ago) Permalink

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


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


the late great, Friday, 5 May 2017 16:53 (eight months ago) Permalink

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?

Guy Pidgeotto (Tom Violence), Friday, 5 May 2017 16:57 (eight months ago) Permalink

more reissue goodness


the late great, Monday, 8 May 2017 18:15 (eight months ago) Permalink

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


Thee Macallan 18 Year, Monday, 8 May 2017 22:52 (eight months ago) Permalink

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.

^ I know, what a total bummer. RIP. Seemed to be getting some props for his techno stuff as Trevino lately (Skream/ Boddika)

For MIST - Outerspace and Universe he deserves a lot of respect, but this is just immortal:

New Patife et al EP out, called The Vibe Is Coming. I haven't heard it yet but I'm guessing I'll love it, like nearly everything from Brazil and like literally everything I've heard Patife on. Summer tunes are rolling out :D

Guy Pidgeotto (Tom Violence), Friday, 30 June 2017 19:26 (six months ago) Permalink

it's on Spotify and the second track on it, "Feelings," has improved my day considerably

metalheadz on the comeback.
i picked up the recent(ish) mikal album a few weeks back, and damn, it hits the spot.
just a shame that the new goldie album sounds like a snorefest from the reviews.

Yup, Metalheadz on point lately

I haven't heard the new Makoto album yet but the tracks I've heard from it were really good. My Spotify access should be back by Wednesday, that's probably the first place I'm going to go.

Schedule for this year's Sun and Bass festival, for anyone interested. Look at the goddamn names, it's nonstop legends. I'm hoping to go next year. Bassdrive will probably be broadcasting bits of it live this week.

airdnb (Tom Violence), Sunday, 3 September 2017 04:21 (four months ago) Permalink

Those Metalheadz tracks are amazing, I dunno if they've got someone new signing records but they've got a couple bangers right there. I've heard better stuff from Brazil last year but I'll still check out the V comp.

airdnb (Tom Violence), Sunday, 3 September 2017 04:29 (four months ago) Permalink

kid drama is great but what about kid lib?


the late great, Sunday, 3 September 2017 05:44 (four months ago) Permalink

That Kid Lib track is great, I had it up on youtube and another track from the EP started right after and that one was great too.

Sleepwalker, the new AwakeFM EP on Omni is great, I recommend it highly if you like atmosphere and melody and shit like that.

I'm sure the new T.R.A.C. album Life In Motion isn't news to anyone, but hot damn is it good. Probably the only dnb album of the year that crosses over into my all-genre top ten.
