Originally from Long Island, NY, SVS has been playing around in Kansas City since mid-2000, playing different types of music over that time and finally settling on Jungle & DnB and pushing the limits of that since. Here's his picks for the month!
Mason / Task Horizon : Lucifer / Lose Myself : Cymbalism Recordings : CYMBLTD003
Mason destroys all in this Jay-Z remix of Lucifer. An extremely hardcore dropper with a very nice use of the lyrics sample. Good creation of a dark grumble of a bass with whiny Dom synths. On the flip side is Lose Myself. A well put together synthy dark roller. The perfect track for a late night with balls.
Barcode Recordings Present : The Rowdy Time EP : Barcode Recordings : BARCODE004
No hard pounding Hardware double pack is complete with out the darkest of the dark. Evol Intent does it again with Horns & Halos. Agents beware of those kicks. With other cuts by Raiden, Spor, & Chase & Status's Rowdy Time this compiles for a nice set for the hard headed.
Blackstar feat. Topcat : Champion DJ / Kunte Kinte : Congo Natty : CONGONATTY5
With the vocals of the legendary Blackstar and the beats of the legend this whole release is straight ass shaking. Champion DJ is a nice mixture of Kung Fu and Ragga sound. Kunte Kinte is a more mellow side. Either track is very versatile for any time of the night.
G Squad : Woohaa [G Squad 2005 RMX] / Bomberclart : White Label : SHIZZLE001
The Busta Rhymes remix is very tasteful and a nice novelty track to have. Nothing too outstanding with it and it could have been put together a bit better. The Elephant Man remix of Bomberclart is on the of best remixes I've heard of this track. Hard ragga pumps my nads.
Congo Natty : Lose Your Soul / Rebel Music : Congo Natty White Label : JAHZION4
Jah, dis be it. Ragga soup for the soul, ya. Lose your soul is a nice reggae undertone track for all the pass arounds. With the flip side a bit harder, good for when your out of the rotation lost in the jungle. You be droppin' it.
