Jungle has always been the backbone, of the music we love, for a long time. After listening to the latest Conrad Subs album, forthcoming on a forward-thinking Manchester imprint, we had a chat with Conrad and Nuusic label bosses Joe & Dylan to find out what's in store for the future.
The 4th of July marked a new independence day in the UK, with 1000s of pubs and bars able to reopen for the first time in the three months. However, nightclubs, gyms and spas will remain closed as they pose too much of a risk.

This release is a true reflection of Noer the Boy’s ability to make absolute slammers while simultaneously showcasing his abilities in masterful sound design.
Samurai Breaks is as true to his name as steel. He may have dropped the tempo on 'Putting in Werk', but by all means has the intensity and rowdiness we so fondly associate with him.
Hailing from Baltimore, SUAHN comes through with his new 'The Gift Of Light' EP on SATURATE RECORDS. This release brings forth a mixture of acid-techno rhythms, jungle inspired breaks, and window-rattling basses.
We found Anti.Negative's SoundCloud maybe a year ago and have been blown away by every release he’s kicked out since then, his style is endlessly innovative and inspiring. Any budding producer is doing themselves a disservice sleeping on this guy!

VALE is the home for expressive and innovative bass music, growing as a trademark for quality Electronica, from House to Garage, Drum & Bass to Halftime. The label released 5 singles back in fall, furthering the diverse palette we all love VALE for.
This new offering, ‘Waves from Within’ is a fantastic piece of work showcasing his ability to mix raw Hip Hop elements with the sludgy, murky side of Halftime/Beats music which we absolutely love.
The guys at VALE never cease to amaze me. Never sticking to one genre and always working to push the next wave of artists into the spotlight is something they continue to do release after release. Returning this time they bring us the ‘Manticore’ EP by the mighty Result.
Upscale’s Frequent has been putting out some serious weight this year with tracks such as ‘Tension Coil, ‘The Goop’ and more recently ‘Forest Fires’ which was covered last month by one of our own.

Subseqence is the name Brian Rothstein gives to his fast growing project of what he calls an “immersive, sub driven, synthetic energy exchange.” Utilising his skills as a multi-instrumentalist to incorporate an organic feel, he seamlessly blends this concept into the realm of electronic music.
Renraku has been synonymous with intelligent-design beat music since the very start, and their latest 11 track offering from Bolten M really affirms that.
With features on SATURATE, collaborations with Mad Zach, starting an audio company, and lest we forget his incredible 'Depth EP' on MethLab, the work rate that yunis displays is unquestionable.
Russian Drum and Bass duo, Abstract Elements (Bop and Diagram) contribute their first EP to MethLab. They bring forth 4 tracks that all fall under a fresh Drum and Bass mantle, neatly fit in what they would like to call Buckweath Funk (ГРЕЧАФАНК): a dark left field relative of Neurofunk.
