Chad Valley‘s new EP, Equatorial Ultravox, is to be released by Casine on June 20th. Below is Fast Challenges for you to download; a four-to-the-floor, reverb soaked piece of auto-tuned musical cheese. The track is, like those from Hugo’s previous EP, a thing of beauty. Chad Valley is playing on the BTG Beach Bar at Stop Making Sense Festival this summer; probably the perfect location for a set from this Crooner.

Gully Foil EP by Shankles Gully Foil EP by Shankles

Brilliant downtempo/electronica 7 track ep from Shankles; “Influenced by the likes of Four Tet, Clark, Nostalgia 77, Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and Alex B, the Gully Foil EP is a deep and twisted record, playing on beautiful melodies and bass-ridden breaks.” Really like the artwork too.

Huge remix of Johnny Jungle’s Killa Sound by Krome and Time, released on Suburban Base Records in 1995. I don’t know what any of the samples in the track are; if you do, let me know.

Granted, I may have added it two days late but Hudson Mohawke‘s unique take on Valentines Day provides a much needed musical addition to all the nauseating paraphernalia. It is sure to sooth any owner of a lonely heart during this contrived period of material romance.

Take Records EP Take Records EP

The label whose music policy centres around depth rather than genre, provide a taster of their sound with this free EP. The records veer from house to tech, garage to half step without sacrificing their cohesiveness, bound together by their ‘emotion, restraint and space’. Exactly my cup of tea – and that’s not entirely because I’m biased. Feeling the artwork too which was done by Ben Ireland

1. Colo – TwentySix
2. James Fox – Found A Way
3. Jack Dixon – Wrong Numbers
4. Mr. Lager – Singularity

Manifesto Music are a free net-based label run by Everyday Junglist. I recently had the pleasure of working with them on their new logo and identity, as well as designing artwork for their debut EP ‘Izanami’ from Icelandic producer Muted. One of the most rewarding parts of this project, apart from the tremendous soundtrack provided by Muted, was the chance to collaborate with Danish photographer Kim Høltermand, who’s work I’d been following for some time.

You can download the EP for free right now on Manifesto Music. The download includes 320k mp3 files, artwork and release notes.

DJ Hype, like Dillinja and all the big Jump-up DJs, has been around for decades. Hype’s Jungle often consists of very melodic bass lines. In the case of this track, We Must Unite, the bass line spans a fair few octaves which I think is pretty cool. I’m stealing the idea for my tunes.

I have We Must Unite as part of a 12” compilation album called Still Smokin which was put out in 1996 on G-Line Records. It features tracks from Hype’s Ganja Records label and, fellow True Playaz man, Pascal’s Frontline Records.

Got this track as part of a compilation called Nu Skool Flava (what an awful name for an album) that was put out by Sound of the Underground Records (S.O.U.R.) in 1996. It is a remix by L Double of Elizabeth Troy’s single-a-long Jungle anthem, Let Me Be. I love the second drop at 3.42′.

I got this track as 10” promo from an amazing record shop which is opposite where I used to live on the Essex Road in the Angel. The shop is called Haggle Vinyl and is run by a short, grumpy Jewish who doesen’t like haggling. “Me a Bad Man” is by Bay B Kane and is the only track I have by him. It was put out on Kik-Man Records in 1994 and has militant, agressive drums that err to the Hardcore side of Jungle. It sticks to the magic tripartite formula of breaks, sub-bass and a sample of a Yardie saying something, making it an angry piece of music.

This remix by Throwing Snow is taken from the “Mind Over Matter Remixes Part 2″ EP on Unique Uncut which has just dropped. Artists contributing to the EP include Altered Natives, Milyoo, Mr Lager and Kilc. It’s really, really good.

Welcome to my new series of posts based around my favorite genre of music: Jungle. The series will consist of tunes from my Jungle vinyl collection that I will record into my computer, make as load as possible and post up for you to save. I am only going to post up things that I believe are out of print and that you could only get second hand and will provide as much information as possible as to where you can get hold of the tracks.

As well as my vinyl collection I am going to post up DJ mixes and will re-post the Jungle tracks already available on the site as part of the series.

First up is vocal lead track by Kemet Crew called “The Fruit”. I got this track as part of the Classic Jungle & Old Skool E.P. compilation put out on Junlge Nation. I love the vocals at 3.18′.
