Potential Bad Boy – Rare Groove

Potential Bad Boy – Rare Groove (Ibiza Records, 1994) Jungle is a mosaic of styles that takes in many forms of black music to create a sound that is totally original and distinctly British in origin. In a documentary shown on BBC 2 as part of All Black TV back in 1994 there’s a scene in whichContinue reading “Potential Bad Boy – Rare Groove”

Blame & Justice – Nemesis

Blame & Justice – Nemesis (Moving Shadow, 1994) Last week I received my order from 2 Bad Mice’s online store, which sells Moving Shadow branded products ranging from t-shirts to slipmats to backpacks. I was lucky enough to grab one of the limited edition hoodies featuring the Moving Shadow World Domination logo on the backContinue reading “Blame & Justice – Nemesis”

Brainkillers – Screwface

Brainkillers – Screwface (3rd Party, 1994) Another tune to recently get the re-issue treatment is this darkside jungle classic from Brainkillers. It was first repressed in 2018 but the sound quality wasn’t great so Kemet re-did the mastering this year and priced the 12″ at just £6.50 by way of apology. The Border Line EPContinue reading “Brainkillers – Screwface”

Dillinja – Sovereign Melody

Dillinja – Sovereign Melody (Deadly Vinyl, 1994) Sovereign (noun): 1. a supreme ruler, especially a monarch 2.

Octave One – Chillin’ Out ’94

Octave One – Chillin’ Out ’94 (31 Records, 1994) A couple of weeks ago Doc Scott released a digital compilation of his early 31 Records material entitled Nasty Habits 1994/2001.

Chuck E – Smokin’ A Blunt

Chuck E – Smokin’ A Blunt (White House Records, 1994) Regular readers of this blog will know that I like following a theme and today I’m going to continue my look at Sweet Sable related material with this track from Chuck E AKA Jimmy Ryan. The four track Chuck EP was his only release underContinue reading “Chuck E – Smokin’ A Blunt”

Tom & Jerry – Airfreshner

Tom & Jerry – Airfreshner (Tom & Jerry, 1994) If you checked out yesterday’s post about ‘Sky High’ by ST Files you may have listened to Sweet Sable’s ‘Old Times’ Sake’ which I mentioned. A nostalgic summer R&B jam from the Above The Rim soundtrack, the main riff should be instantly familiar to any discerningContinue reading “Tom & Jerry – Airfreshner”

DnB Advent Calendar: Day 22

Uncle 22 – Your Love (Strictly Underground Records, 1994) I nearly posted about Uncle 22 AKA Desmond Fearon back on day six of the DnB Advent Calendar with probably his best known track, ‘6 Million Ways To Die – Choose One’, but then thought I’d save featuring him for today. Fearon was co-owner of theContinue reading “DnB Advent Calendar: Day 22”

DnB Advent Calendar: Day 19

Trinity – Chapter 19 (V Recordings, 1994) This 12″ from the mighty Dillinja under his Trinity alias could have served as the entry for both Day 19 and 20 of the DnB Advent Calendar as the flipside is entitled ‘Chapter 20’, but that would be a bit lazy of me so I’ve got something elseContinue reading “DnB Advent Calendar: Day 19”

DnB Advent Calendar: Day 14
