Jay Garret aka THE FORCE is back once again with his soon to be massive hit single PULL IT & 2 WORLDS on the mighty DJ SILVER’s label NEMESIS RECORDINGS! Having taken a step back for a year or so THE FORCE is back with another killer cut for the junglist massive out there!
Coinciding with the growing popularity of the NFL in the UK, Hip Hop legends ‘M1 dead prez & Bonnot’ will be releasing ‘Offense Defense’ in March 2015, alongside an American Football themed music video. This follows ‘M1 dead Prez & Bonnot’ recent BBC One interview and “Fire In The Booth Legends’ with Charlie Sloth and a premiere by the world renowned tastemaking The Source Magazine which gained further international notoriety through a feud between Eminem and it’s former co-owner Benzino.
‘Offense Defense’ combines Bonnot’s heavy, aggressive beat with M1 dead prez’s trademark snarling tone and relentless vocal flow. The video which was filmed in Italy features ‘M1 dead prez & Bonnot’ dressed in Bergamo Lions (3 times European Champions and 12 times Italian champions) apparel.‘ This release happens to come at a time where American Football has become increasingly popular throughout the UK and becoming a regular topic in it’s media, with the last match selling out Wembley Stadium and The Telegraph describing it as “one of the most engaging sports you’ll see”. The popularity of the sport has reached the point where London Mayor Boris Johnson is considering a London NFL franchise. “We yearn for an NFL Franchise, we will roll out the red carpet, we will strew your way with petals”.
‘M1 dead prez & Bonnot’ are also due to be interviewed by DJ Semtex on BBC 1 Xtra and will be premiered by TBC. This announcement comes right at the of time of one of the most watched sporting event around the world, the combination of the NFL season and 2015 Super Bowl broadcasted on Channel 4 and Sky Sports with later games taking place at Wembley Stadium from 4th October for the next season.
Right in the midst of the producers ‘Jungle War Dubs’ session comes this fitting work out from Katch Pyro and one of BOR’s front men Stivs. This tune has all the ingredients of a war dub with extra bounce to get you on the dance floor and begging for more!
Dropping one year after Born On Road’s 1st release they thought it was time to flip the script and show you how diverse this label really is.
This straight up amen jungle tear out with power driving 808’s rings of the original underground sound born in warehouse raves and illegal free parties over the UK throughout the 90s.
‘Yuh No Badman’ begins in classic ragga jungle style with a great dubwize hook and chopped up vocals before dropping with solid amen edits and earth shattering 808’s which lead us smoothly into a rumbling reece bass the Renegade would be proud of.
As proved by the label’s DJs over the summer, this is a serious stomper fit for any party to do some serious damage!
If that wasn’t enough they also offer you two remixes, the 1st from hot newcomer Fleck and the 2nd from well established label man himself Gold Dubs.
It would seem only one question remains…. Who the badman?
If you’ve been keeping your eye on the Los Angeles D&B scene, then you’ll know all about Slogun and iOh. Hailed as “Ones to Watch” by Kmag in 2013, their deep respect for junglist history and culture has fuelled a steady rise to prominence both as DJs and producers. Now, they’re ready to take the next step, and make their mark on the international scene as part of the Technique roster. So, after the warning shot of Razor Sharp on the 15 Years of Technique LP, it’s time to welcome the team now known as Kronology with their first full release.
So Kronology have arrived, and they’ve got some flavours that you might not have heard before. While fully immersed in drum and bass music, they’ve brought their own influences of American EDM, house, punk and metal to work into the formula. Straight out of the San Fernando Valley, here’s something new for the D&B scene, encapsulated in their first release, the Timelapse EP.

If you have been to a festival somewhere in Europe this past summer, chances are you heard the Freefall Collective. The outfit operates as a well-oiled and energetic live band that are equally as well known and respected for their tight renditions of their own studio made tracks as they are for their high energy freestyle and freeform jam sessions. Regular faces at such events as Boomtown Fair, Noisily, Glastonbury and the Summer Festival in Seville, Spain, the band have been road testing their 2nd album to gaggles of joyous punters.
While the live circuit is in their blood, they are equally as comfortable in the studio making bass rumbling breaks and beats that have graced the record boxes of such luminaries as Deekline, Ed Solo & Atomic Hooligan.
They have put music out on respected labels like Rat Records, Pooty Club and of course their own label ‘Supafrequency’, which they released their first album on, ‘Sounds Out Of Time’ in 2012.
Now its time to put all that road testing to good use. The tunes bang and the release date is set!
This, their second album ‘Welcome To Earth’ is released in early 2015 again on ‘Supafrequency’. It features vocalists, MC Tenja & old skool UK Hip-Hop legend, MC Duke.
Again a mixture of dub, breaks and bass, ‘Welcome to Earth’ heralds a new era for the Collective, but never strays too far away from their winning formula that you know and love.
We are pleased to present to you a sampler from the album for your playing and listening pleasure.
