    Jungle veteran J Majik announces first album in over 20 years, Full Circle - https://www.residentadvisor.net/news/43587

    J Majik is back with a new album on his label Infrared.

    Full Circle is James Spratling's first LP in more than 20 years, following 1997's Slow Motion. As the title implies, it's a look back at his roots and the golden era of '90s jungle, meant to emphasize the enduring "futuristic" sound of jungle in the wake of the neurofunk sound that largely replaced it.

    After an extended hiatus, Spratling was inspired to return to making music after DJing a Rupture party in London, where he felt "an atmosphere he hadn't seen since the '90s." The press release calls Full Circle an "optimistic" album with "filmic soundscapes à la John Carpenter."

    Yeah, the artwork and framing is a bit naff, but the tune itself is solid.

It was a delightful double take. Excellent b-movie sampling, almost as good as the heyday of 93-4!

    Yeah, I discovered that a while back. I asked PJ where it came from a few years back and he said he couldn't remember.

    You can tell listening to the first generation of grime mcs that they started out with jungle. Major ace and maxwell d probably sound better here than in any other context to tell the truth. Stormin was brilliant on jungle too of course. I've got a tape somewhere of a Dizzee with nasty crew set where they do jungle for the last 10, 15 minutes and it's amazing.

    I'm glad I read the thread first. Not the best Crystl but by far the greatest track names.

    Fabio & Grooverider - 30 Years Of Rage: Part 1 & 2

    Titans of UK rave culture, Fabio & Grooverider look back on ’30 Years of Rage’, their seminal London club night, with the 2nd of four volumes charting the ultra-classic and hard-to-find foundations of hardcore, jungle and D&B - the UK’s greatest gift to the world of the past generation.

    As the label explain, their RAGE night was arguably the ground zero for Jungle. "The party was started at London's cavernous Heaven club by Fabio & Grooverider in 1988, at the height of Acid House fever that was making it's way up and down the motorways, slip-roads, fields and warehouses of the M25 and further beyond every weekend, troubling the nation, the police, your parents and the press as it went. RAGE was a different beast, it certainly channelled some of that Acid energy but pitted it against the new and exciting sounds emanating from Belgium, Amsterdam, Detroit, Sheffield, Essex and Hackney and in turn created a new style, a new sonic attitude and energy in the process. Rumbling bass-lines, narcotic synth rushes and roughly chopped and sped-up breakbeats all merged into a style that we now know as Jungle."

    This first volume is a tour de force of early rave pressure, charting a course from Leftfield’s deep 1990 bass massage ‘Not Forgotten’ thru Lennie De Ice’s all-time jungle cornerstone ‘We Are IE’, the London mash-up styles of ‘Dubplate’ by Wots My Code, Foul Play’s artful jungle masterpiece ‘Being With You’, and the bawl fwd hardcore of ‘The Future’ by Noise Factory, saving Fallout’s lip-smacking classic ‘The Morning After (Sunrise Mix)’ for dessert.

    On volume 2 of 4, ravers are spoilt for choice with a selection running from Derrick May’s metallic Detroit funk in ‘Emanon’ to Q Project’s jungle foundation ‘Champion Sound’, taking in Richie Hawtin’s hoover techno classique ‘Technarchy’ as Cybersonik, Ecstasy Club’s acid house anphem ‘Jesus Loves The Acid’, Nightmares On Wax’s Yorkshire bleep ’n bass staple in ‘Aftermath’, and the deadly feminine pressure of ‘Just 4 U London (Kuff Mix)’ by Bodysnatch.

    Essentials, the lot of ‘em.
