[RRRDJ002] Try Unity - Try Unity E.P. [Limited Edition 12" Vinyl Available To Buy Now!!!]

A - Forever Free (Euphoric Mix)'.
B1 - Calling The Hardcore.
B2 - Our Journey.

After the resounding success of debut vinyl release 'Stand Up / Fight For Love', Try Unity are back once again with yet another top notch selection of 1992 style, breakbeat hardcore cuts infused with euphoria inducing vocals with the release of the 'Try Unity E.P.' on Rave Radio Records.

Picking up where the previous 12" left off, opening track 'Forever Free (Euphoric Mix)' rolls out with chunky breaks and floaty pads before evolving into a positively ecstatic piano section paired with Francesca's soothing vocals, extolling a message of positivity for these times of hardship.

Up next we are presented with 'Calling The Hardcore', an amen break driven call-to-arms to all ravers, jam packed with phat basslines, rush inducing stabs and uplifting vocals with a nifty, near Debbie Harry-esque rap section to get everyone jumping. 

The EP is rounded off by an equally euphoric breakbeat hardcore cut with 'Our Journey' which combines crisp, rolling breaks overlaid with gorgeous ethereal pads, a lyrical message calling for unity over an electrifying piano melody.

As with their previous release, Try Unity deliver yet another choice selection of upbeat, vocal led breakbeat hardcore tracks heavily influenced by the Golden Age of rave. Make sure you reserve your pre-order soon as this one is guaranteed to sell out fast!!!

The 'Try Unity E.P.' is available to pre-order from the Try Unity Bandcamp page in  both digital and limited to 100 copies, 12" vinyl formats for £2 and £8.99 respectively. All vinyl orders will come with a free digital version too, and delivery date is estimated to be around 04/11/17

[VMRDT097] Hektic - Scream [Available From All Good Viral-Mental Records Digital Stockists Now!!!]

1/ Scream.
2/ Yeh Badboy.

Viral-Mental Records head honcho, Hektic is back in action and with two heavyweight drum & bass/jungle tracks with the release of the 'Scream' two track single delivering some deep and dark, dancefloor destruction.

We are first introduced to sinister slice of Mafioso inspired, drum & bass with the positively menacing 'Scream', which drops rasping bass notes and darkly portentous horn drones over a ten tonne 2-step break, drawing comparison to the likes of 1996's dark jump-up classic, 'Dark Soldier'.

We go deep into the the jungle depths with 'Yeh Badboy', an ominous amen roller flavoured with ominous atmospheric effects, filtered breakbeats, pulsating bassline and choice nods to vintage jungle cuts of yesteryear.

The 'Scream' single sees the VMR label return with a bang with two decidedly heavy, dark jungle cuts that'll add some weight to any drum & bass set. Get on this one quicktime!!!

Hektic's 'Scream' single is available to purchase now from all good Viral-Mental Records digital stockists...

[Bambra Productions 001] Bambra - Koncrete Jungle EP [3-Track Digital Download Available Now!!!]

1/ Koncrete Jungle.
2/ Technoid.
3/ Urban Survivalist.

October sees the debut release of brand new digital drum & bass label, Bambra Productions which unleashes a trio of fiercely uncompromising, industrial tinged drum & bass with the release of Bambra's 'Koncrete Jungle EP'.

We are first introduced to a series of menacing drones which kick-start title track, 'Koncrete Jungle' and are soon accompanied by crisp, hard-stepping breaks and ominous, discordant bass growls which perfectly encapsulates the Golden era of techstep, circa 1996.

Things get even darker on 'Technoid' which sees pitch black, reverb drenched atmospherics do battle with brain searing mentasm stabs and heavyweight 2-step breaks, sounding like an impossible soundclash between DJ Trace and Richard D. James come true.

The last piece of the audio triptych, 'Urban Survivalist' takes on an even more urgent pace by layering sinister soaring and descending pads over a pulsating bass riff, relentless stepping breaks and tasteful nods to past jungle classics.

For a first release, Bambra proves that he's more than ready to take on any established drum & bass producer with this retrospective, yet forward thinking collection of neo-tech-step bombs. If deep and dark D&B fulfils your appetite for music then make sure that the 'Koncrete Jungle EP' is on your agenda!!!

Bambra's 'Koncrete Jungle EP' is available to download now from the Bambra Productions Bandcamp page for the bargain price of £2, or more if you wish to support the artist and label to fund future releases.

1/ Intro.
2/ See You In Hell.

4/ Dead Rising.
5/ Descend To Hell.
6/ Signal In Space.
7/ Send In The Clowns.
8/ Lost Wastelands.

10/ Nightmares.
11/ The Paranormal.
12/ Outro.

After many months of toil and trouble Deadly Nightshade finally unveil's his darkside magnum opus 'Dark Journey' on Xtra Hard Records. Featuring ten deep and atmospheric dark hardcore and jungle cuts, expertly engineered to provide the perfect soundtrack to the season of Samhain. Strap yourself in. We're going on a 'Dark Journey'!!!

After a chilling, teasing intro, we are soon presented with the positively diabolical 'See You In Hell', a thundering fusion of rolling breaks, menacing bass drones, intricate synth melodies and demonic mentasm growls. Up next we are hit with a duo of heavyweight, acid and hoover enhanced breakbeat hardcore bombs with 'From The Future' and 'Dead Rising'. Two electrifying tracks which capture the manic urgency of headstrong, oldskool hardcore without succumbing to fluffy pianos or cheesy diva vocals.

'Descend To Hell' takes us on a 120 mile per hour trip to the darkside with it's breakneck speed beats and jarring horror movie sound effects, before we are fast forwarded into the future, retro-hardcore-style with the sci-fi flavoured 'Signal In Space'. Up next 'Send In The Clowns' flavours it's oldskool breakbeat hardcore format with a pinch of junglistic breaks and huge helping of monstrous neuro D&B style, bass blasts to ramp up the atmosphere whereas 'Lost Wastelands' takes us on a pounding jungle-tekno excursion, complete with an immense, acid-techno drop and razor-sharp 'Anasthasia' stabs.

'Gang Culture' continues on the hardcore/jungle/techno soundclash with it's potent blend of bubbling 303 basslines, rolling 'Omni Trio' breaks and electrifying rave riffs set to a series of ominous gangster movie dialogue and news report sampling. Darkcore raises it's ugly head yet again with the pitch black 'Nightmares', which emulates the classic genre tropes of vintage 1992 themed hardcore, whilst giving it a modern, almost Prodigy-esque twist. The album is then brought to an apocalyptic close with 'The Paranormal', a colossal slab of premium quality darkness with some seriously atmospheric pad action.

Even on first listen it becomes instantly clear that Deadly Nightshade's 'Dark Journey' has been a labour of love in the making with it's combination of genre-spanning, richly textured sound palettes and hectic paced, rolling breakbeats. If you consider yourself a lover of the darker side of hardcore then you will need to have this on your collection!!!

The 'Dark Journeyalbum is available to download now from Deadly Nightshade's Bandcamp page for £7.00, or more if you wish to support the label and artists to fund future releases.
