For this week's fix we return to Deep Jungle...
Deep Jungle comes up once again as the pick, this time with an absolute unit of a release from the current reigning heavyweight champion of Jungle.
Tim Reaper has been on a roll for almost half a decade now, and it seems heʼs still only getting started. With countless releases and collaborations to his name, spanning a multitude of labels, all while running the recently established record label 'Future Retro'.
DAT041 is another notch in the bedpost for Tim. Showcasing 4 tracks of pure, stripped back, 94-95 stylised Jungle that goes straight to the core of what made this great genre so unique and authentic.
Littered with rich Juno / Jupiter-esque pads, upfront hard-step grooves, discordant keys and stabs, polyrhythmic layered breaks and pulsating resonant sine basses, the EP is great listen from start to finish, perfectly encapsulating a timeless feeling while maintaining a level of freshness and originality.
DAT041 went up last week, just in time for this monthʼs Bandcamp Friday [06/09/21] on the Deep Jungle page. Digital is still available to purchase through here, although a vinyl copy might require a little more effort hunting down.
