EZ Rolled – Jungletrain Session 153

Jay Hurren and Alex Banks defined the easy-rolling two-step of Moving Shadow Records during the late ’90s with their recordings as E-Z Rollers, after developing hardcore breakbeats earlier in the decade as JMJ & Richie and Hyper On Experience. Meeting up with vocalist Kelly Richards, Hurren and Banks decided to form E-Z Rollers around the threesome.

Their debut album Dimensions of Sound appeared in mid-1996, followed by several additional singles for Moving Shadow and the full-length follow-ups Weekend World and Titles of the Unexpected. Their huge singles Walk this Land and Tough at the Top are some of the most recognisable singles in D&B due to their hard jazz sound.

While not getting a lot of props these days, they have had a heavy influence on D&B and I especially respect their early works. I’ll always have a soft spot for their additions to the Moving Shadow catalogue and hope their future releases live up to the past.

L Boh – Jungletrain Session 167

Jonny L is an aquired taste and not being a big fan of Piper when it first hit I took a little while to fully appreciate just what a talent he really is. From the sparceness of the beat in ‘Hardcore’, to the hidden funk in ‘Wish U Had Something (Remix)’ and the step-notic rhythm of Piper, Jonny L gets away with a simplicity other producers can only dream of.

His production career has spanned 18 years and not only was he signed to the mighty XL Records during their heyday, but he has also produced for Dane Bowers, Posh Spice and surprisingly S Club. Despite this his albums Sawtooth and Magnetic are some of D&B’s most original and famous solo albums ever. Jonny L now goes under the guise of Mr L and his label Mr L Records is still releasing quality stripped back tunes.

Finely Calibrated – Jungletrain Session 166

Calibre’s finely tuned sense of melody and bass is something that steps him apart from his contemporaries. A master of liquid beats and grooves, very few producers can strip back a tune to just it’s bare elements and still keep the impact that Calibre does.

A prolific producer he drops albums almost bi-annually whilst still releasing strings of singles. He has appeared on just about every liquid label you would ever want to be on including Soul:R, Creative Source, Phuturo, Exit, V, Hospital and many others. His own Signature label releases just Calibre tunes, including the mighty Shelflife I & II and Overflow albums.

I have a lot of time and respect for Calibre. He isn’t the worlds most inovative producer, but he has spent years forging and perfecting his own sound. What he does, he does better than anyone else out there. So strap yourself in and get ready to have your head massaged by the mighty Calibre.

Urban D.Kay – Jungletrain Session 182

D.Kay has been one of the most consistent and diverse producers in D&B over the last decade. He can pump out quality tracks across all genres and rightly so has been recognised by some of the scenes biggest labels. As well as his own two labels, Illskillz Recordings and Brigand he has appeared on Metalheadz, Hospital, Exit, C.I.A., Soul:R, Bingo and whole host of other labels.

This mix was done back in 2008 so it doesn’t cover a lot of his most recent output. However it is a good selection of his earlier output including tracks from his stunning Individual Soul album which is a highly under-rated classic.

Bring The Noize – Ear & Drum Session 28

Elementz of Noize are one of those under-rated outfits that slips under the radar mainly due to the fact that they were good at just about every genre they tried there hand at. Alan Clark & Justin Maughan started out making Intelligent drops like the amazing ‘Astral’ and ‘Yes’ in 1995. But as things started turning to the dark side they released a load of classic Tech Step barn stormers on SOUR Recordings. Tunes like ‘Communicate With The World’, ‘Talking Mad Shit’ and thier biggest hit ‘Hit Tha Deck’ were monster Tech Steppers that threw out the subtlety of Ed Rush and replaced it with bitchslapping beats and cavernous b-lines to make dancefloor damage.

After the Tech Step sound died out they moved to Emotiv and had a few releases on Fuze Recordings. Their new sound was still Tech based but had a more stipped back Stepper rhythm. Then in 2002 they returned to their melodic roots with the killer 12″ of ‘Clock/Guided by Lights’, showing that a tune could be musical and still hard as nails. Although they haven’t released much since this time, their legacy is still one of a back catalogue very few misses and a shed load of hits.

Fricken Genius – Jungletrain Session 127

Once upon a time a long time ago, producers didn’t just write choons that made you jump up and down. They also made tracks that took you on a journey, made your jaw drop and shit the bed all at once.

One such producer was T-Power, and this is his story.

Los Trio Omnios – Phuturefreq Session 7

I’ll be the first to admit that Omni Trio is like no other D&B producer in the game. His sense of melody and gentle touch in production makes his stuff far more than D&B and pushes it into the realms of ‘proper music’.

Ever since he started up with Rob Playford, Omni Trio has consistently released hit after hit and has provided some of THE anthems for the genre. His Albums Volume One – The Deepest Cut, The Haunted Science, Skeleton Keys, Byte Sized Life and Even Angels Cast Shadows are all classics.

I did this mix back in 2004, but still get requests for it today and so I thought it is well overdue for a re-hosting. It doesn’t cover every great track he has ever done, but you never could in just 2 hours. Even though a lot of the stuff in the mix is over 10 years old, I never get sick of listening to it and I hope you don’t either. Mr Robert Haigh, to you I say respect.

Muttly Much? – Jungletrain Session 176

Hailing from Canada, Mutt blazes a trail with his unique sound. His melodic and soulful style is second to none in D&B today.

For me Mutt was the best new comer to D&B for 2006-7. His sense of melody, stripped back beats and soulful vocals make his sound relaxed and easy on the ear. But when it comes to rolling it out, he heads into a dubby dance hall style that gets the floor moving proper. I can’t say enough about him really. :fanboy: 

This mix is for him and anyone who loves his sound.

All Klute and No Klute Makes Klute a Klutey Klute

Klute. Without a doubt one of my all time favourite producers. He can produce anything from 120bpm ambient pieces all the way through to a 180bpm dance floor tear outs. But no matter what style and sound, it always sounds quality and it always sounds like Klute.

Back in 2003 I did a mix called ‘All Klute and No Klute Make Klute a Klutey Klute’ which turned out to be my most downloaded set of all time. In 2007 I did a second part using a lot of the newer Klute tracks. I am waiting for a new album from the man before I put together part three.

But until that time, here is parts one & two for all those that asked.

PS. I have added an extra Klute mix to the bottom of the list. It is all those weird little bonus tracks you get on CDs that you don’t get on vinyl all mixed into an hour long set. Worth checking out if you are a Klute fan. 😉

The Bonus Mix

So it recently came to my attention that all the Klute LPs come with bonus tracks if you get the CD…

…having bought all the albums on vinyl I was missing over 50 tracks by the great man that I never even knew existed!

So a quick trip to Amazon and I sorted myself out with what has to be some of the best bonus material I’ve ever heard. A lot of the tracks were downbeat/breaks in nature, but there was enough D&B in amongst it for me to throw down an hours worth of deep and abstract Klutey goodness.

Everyone knows I am a complete Klute fanbwoy, and I know there are many others out there like me. So if you like what you hear in this mix, may I suggest you buy some of Klute’s albums on CD and suprise yourself, because this really is only scratching the surface.

Progressive Future Music – Ear & Drum Session 1

To say PFM is a legend in the field of atmospheric drum & bass is a chronic understatement. Although not huge in volumes of output, just about every track PFM has produced is golden and is so lushly crafted that they always take you on a journey. If I had to point to a single producer who sums up the Good Looking sound it would be them/him.

This mix goes to all those who have had a ‘moment’ on a dance floor some where at some time when a PFM track has smoothed it’s way into a mix and transported you to a better place.
