Pace-setting label More Time Records returned last month with their eight release - an EP from label co-founder SNØW, aka Sam from Bristol bass obsessives Jus Now. Harking back to his old Interface moniker, each of the four tracks on X-Amount is dedicated to a different style or era of the high BPM rave tunes that Sam grew up on, combined with his modern, percussive production style.
Now you can listen to 10 of SNØW's favourite late '90s/early '00s jungle and DnB tracks that shaped his musical taste. He's gone properly deep with the explanations, so from Dillinja to to Future Cut to Total Science, don't waste a minute and dig in below.
SHY FX - THIS STYLE
Shy FX is an absolute king when it comes to jungle. He has got classics for days on end and still puts out super high quality records to this day (in fact, something amazing just hit the inbox today!) This one doesn't often get mentioned much, I love this one coz it feels like a Bristol vibe!! It sounds like it should have been on Dope Dragon Records but at the same time you can hear Shy's signature vibe too. Pure no frills jump up jungle, rolling pitched breakbeats, couple little vocal samples and a big saturated 808 bassline!!
