Rolling Deep – Jungletrain Session 175

ChaNinja has been in touch and asked for a couple of sets to get him through the work day. The first one up is this set I put together in March 2008 for the mighty jungletrain.net

This one for the lovers of the deep rollers.

The dubbed out deep sounds of artists like Amit and Breakage has given D&B a breath of fresh air in the last couple of years. Characterised by stripped back beats and cavernous b-lines, the slow groove that these choons roll out gives them a momentum that is unlike any other genre in D&B.

Chillax – Ear & Drum Session 3

It’s that time of year again when I hit the decks and try to knock up 6 hours worth of the best D&B tracks for that year. This is part 1 of 3 and comprises of the best 2 hours of the deeper and chilled side of D&B.

I figure a good many of us probably have sore heads today, so this will ease you into 2009.

Sofa Beats – Jungletrain Session 143

Sea Monkey strikes again dredging up this mix from 2007. This one is designed as an after-party mix to massage your mind. Follow the instructions and you’ll be fine.

So it’s 5am and you’ve all just got home.

You don’t even remember inviting half these people?!?

You don’t care though, because the weird guy has a cute sister.

Is she giving me the vibe?

You’re still slightly spangled, but because you’ve been banging it all night, anything too heavy is going to do your head in.

What you do?

1. Put the kettle on
2. Hit the lounge
3. Roll a phatty. (optional)
4. Play this mix
5. Talk crap till bed time

This one’s for those that chill like that.

Sharp Fokuz – Jungletrain Session 134

A cheeky Sea Monkey reminded me that this set was a corker and well worth going in the request pile. It’s an all Fokuz Recordings showcase, so if you like their sound you’ll like this.

Fokuz have been coming on strong in the last 12 months to forge a sound that is both deep, melodic and firing. For me nothing sounds quite like this label and I’ve been itching to put together a mix of their sound for quite a while. With the release of their Treasures from the Deep LP the time is right to lay down a hours worth of pure melodic class.

Big ups to the Fokuz peeps for letting me mix this one up (yes I did ask permission) and big ups to all their artists for consistently putting out tracks I can’t resist buying on site. My only grumble is that I don’t have as much of their stuff as I’d like too.

If you know the label you’ll enjoy this, if you don’t know the label then now is a perfect opportunity to catch up on what you’ve been missing.

Deeper Shades – New Years Eve 2007

This was a mix I put together on New Years Eve back in 2007. A guy called ‘Awesomeness’ has been in touch and wanted it uploaded again because it ‘put him in a nice place’. I can’t really argue with that, so here it is.

If your anything like me you’ve probabley had one shandy too many last night and might not be up for listening to a Drill-Core set just now. So with that in mind I’ve mixed up a selection of deeper beats from 2006 to give your mind a massage and to help you ease your way in 2007.

There is loads of sweet tracks from labels like Fokuz, Spearhead, Signature, Horizons, Creative Source, Artic Music and many more. Plus I’ve thrown in the the odd track with a darker edge to keep things interesting.

Anyway, have a listen and chill into 2007. Hope it’s a good one.
