JUBEI – THE PRAYER (WITH GOLDIE)
Bit of a step up from Prins Thomas here in the dirty stakes. Now, I’m certainly no DnB head but I had my dabbles with old skool jungle and I’ve become more appreciative of some of the more recent, pared-back minimal explorations by some of the newer producers and labels but sometimes a tune comes along which just does good things to me and this monster deserves a mention. It looks like Metalheadz have got a real big album on their hands, the forthcoming To Have & Have Not LP. Shadowy bassline, restrained percussion, all mixed with those sparse, dark and empty atmospherics – devastator.
