Yo, we helped start of 2011 and January with 014 in our catalog, and we’re gonna wind down the first month of this new year with another release!
Hailing from Britain, the one X Nation delivers some ruff, tuff, and dangerous pure junglistic vibes with 015 in the Bludclot catalog. “Foolproof” and “Mentasm Sleeps” are both proper runnin’ jungle tunes, each utilizing the same base for take off while running in different yet cohesive directions than the other. With big punchy low ends and some deft clanky rollin’ chopped drums spiced up with some occasional ragga vocal drops, “Foolproof” is for the outerspace smoker massive on the floor; the perfect hybrid of headnod and bootyshake jungle drum’n’bass vibes. Decidedly more dancefloor driven, “Mentasm Sleeps” is still very spaced out, but riding the waves of the drums and bass to a more definite foot shuffling focus; dropping down to deep and dark early hardcore rave depths at points. Together, fans of both rolling dancefloor jams and more so-called intelligent armchair jungle will be into this one, for sure.
