The Big Chill – Ear & Drum Session 139

Recently I’ve been scouring 90s CD compilations for rare tracks and tunes I haven’t heard before and been coming up with some pure gold. Not every track in this mix is rare or unheard, but all of them are Intelligent jungle & D&B gold. I have so many memories of good times had to these tunes that I just had to share.

These are the true pioneers of today’s D&B sound. And these are the tunes that made the world stop and pay attention to the weird fast soul music being created by a small scene in the UK. These tunes make me think of the first time I played Logical Progression or the first time I heard LTJ Bukem live in 95′. They shimmer and they sparkle with a real essence of inspiration and freshness lacking in lots of today’s D&B and music in general.

I had a real blast discovering this music all over again to put together this mix and I hope you have a blast listening to it. Happy holidays.

  1. What is this shite. I’ve known Gatch from back in the day playing his unknown gabber setup but honestly where is the old skool vibes. I’m just hearing farty whale noises and hipasses without any real EQ scooping where the chain needs it.

  2. If you’d like to supply me with the dubs of those tracks I’ll happily put them into a mix for you Badmon.

    Cheers Mish. I was hoping to put it up on Patreon as an exclusive for you but the 2hr size meant it went over the upload file size limit.

    I did think of you while mixing this one. 😉
