D.J. Junk – Spandangle Selection Volume 7
D.J. Junk fronts ‘Spandangle Selection Volume 7’ with four classic cuts of breakbeat hardcore & jungle, remastered for a fresh vinyl release
This essential slice of vinyl starts with the darkside jungle of ‘Mars’, a precise collision of booming subs, spinbacks, sinister samples and euphoric strings straight from the dawn of the jungle era
‘Timestretch The Dope Amen Brother’ is an early lesson in the amen break manipulation that is a staple of the genre-crisp, rolling and not a beat, key, or sample out of place. The timestretched synths have an eerie feel that transports the listener to another plane in true 93/94 style.
‘Aries’ is an exquisite roller with a Hip Hop/B Boy flava. The subs boom through the speakers in the company of scratches, wheel ups and a huge euphoric drop.
Finally, the ‘Monsters & Demons’ Remix completes this vinyl as a real treat for avid oldskool collectors. This is a well known track from the darkside hardcore era, famous for the vocal sample and fear inducing chords that are actually borrowed from an early Techno tune (The Black Dog: Virtual (WDMA Moonbeat Mix), an essential get for completionists, old skool ravers and junglists alike.
