Taken from the “In The Beginning” vinyl only single by Justice and Metro, this is a highly limited lathe cut release exclusive to this weekends Clashmouth event.
Similar to the Dave Charlesworth “Energiser” releases of the early 90’s both sides of “In The Beginning” sample seminal hardcore classics then reassemble them into original tracks.
Featuring an iconic dove logo on one side and a smiley face on the other the artwork captures the halcyon drug-fuelled days of rave culture.
A highly collectable trainspotters dream this release is limited to only a handful of copies so we recommend getting down to Clashmouth this Saturday early doors if you can.
A mixtape of “In The Beginning” by Justice and Metro featuring all the tracks that have been sampled and more will also be available on the day as a limited edition cassette.
“Inverse” by Forest Drive West is taken from the forthcoming Various Artist EP “UVB-76-011 released November 9th.
A solid drum machine groove enriched with layered Soul Pride edits “Inverse” is a dark and brooding blend of techno and jungle. Raw drum and bass reduced to a punishing combination of stark bleak bass and filtered drum shuffles. Bleeps oscillate warning of impending danger and flashes of texture are strewn across the track like paint on a black canvas.
The EP also features the UVB-76 debut of Entire, Nekyia and DB1.
Estonia’s Thing joins Repertoire with his take on the contemporary jungle sound on his forthcoming “Lack of Diversity EP”.
Somewhat ironically titled the release covers a broad spectrum of drum and bass styles centered around classic 90’s breaks. “Link To The Past” begins with gentle percussion and natural sounds before an encyclopedia of legendary breaks are unleashed. Organic sounds are soon replaced with twisted mentasms and drum filters before returning for a delicate breakdown complimented with drifting pads. The breaks soon return for a powerful second section with yet more intricate chops and edits.
The EP is released on November 2nd available from the Repertoire Bandcamp.
Exclusive Premiere of “Rough Coast” by Sicknote from the first release on his new label Stereocilia.
Heavily influenced by the mid-nineties progressive drum and bass movement “Rough Coast” combines the beauty of Good Looking and the dark complexity of Metalheadz.
The track opens with wave samples and soaring chords creating a serene sundrenched atmosphere before the calmness is then broken by beats that arrive, twist then filter away before returning with venom backed with an army of Reese basslines and piercing stabs.
Exclusive to the Clashmouth independent drum and bass label market in November this will be available as a highly limited lathe cut vinyl release backed with “Trouble” featuring Escher.
“Clart” by Yoofee is taken from the “Visualize EP” on Through These Eyes, a Berlin-based record label specialising in bass-heavy electronics.
Vinyl only and limited to 300 copies this hand stamped white label features four tracks designed for high energy dance floors.
Incorporating a dynamic range of modern styles injected with a healthy dose of nostalgia this collection of tracks represents the vision of the label perfectly. A landmark release for Through These Eyes and an exciting glimpse into Yoofee, an artist that is as comfortable performing in a jazz band as he is chopping breakbeats.
The “Visualize EP” also contains a high octane remix by IOTA and the sublime melodies of ambient fused “Blue”. An accomplished release that will appeal to both cosmic stargazers and jungle diehards.

The seventh release on Rua Sound sees the label deliver a further four heavyweight excursions into left field dance music.
A multi-artist EP this collection highlights the far-reaching influence of modern jungle containing contributions from across the globe and from both female and male musicians. This rich diversity shines through track by track as each producer adds their own unique style to the EP whilst remaining unified in their passion for bass culture and low-end frequencies.
Electronic hip hop and dance hall elements feature throughout adding a layer of depth and character that create a vibrant amalgamation of UK Bass styles.
On this track Cosmic Bridge producer and DJ edit champion TMSV remixes “Gonman” to devastating effect. Opening with an infectious melody it’s not long before a slew of kicks, bass and sirens take the tune into the darkest corners of the digital dancehall. The rugged vocals of D.E adding to the murky tone and atmosphere.
