Boomkat Product Review:
Cherry-picking junglist DJ Persuasion shifts to 96-97 with killer results in the latest instalment of his studious mixtape series.
Chasing up volumes for Tape Echo and Id Mud in the last 12 months, the specialist DJ locks his crosshair on jungle’s transition into a colder, technoid form of hard-stepping D&B thru a ruck of classic and lesser known - but no less deadly - cuts from some of the scene’s vital architects and players.
The tracklist shall remain a mystery until you’ve got the tape in your machine, but we can confirm this is some prime top shelf business, caught in flux between gnashing amens, 2-step rollcages and darkside licks of jazz and sci-fi techno pads in a way that triggers our muscle memory like few other styles, casting these ears right back to early ‘00s warehouse raves in Manchester where this sound was still in effect.
The coldest rush. Highly recommended!
