Sasha Khan (East Midlands, UK) is interested in all things Jungle / DnB / Breakbeat, and has been producing electronic music since he first got his hands on a drum machine and 4-track tape recorder.
Sasha Khan’s inspiration for his Symbols EP was drawn from early 90’s Jungle Techno and Hardcore; up-dated with modern Drum and Bass production techniques and Synthesis.
The lead track, “Love Song” is a gentle nod towards “The Lighter” by DJ SS, which sampled 1970’s film “Love Story“‘s theme. “Infinite Possibilities” makes use of a repetitive bass riff and chopped Amen’s; layered with other breaks. Finally, “Questions” was inspired by Derby-based d’nb producer: DJ Theory.
Run Tingz Cru are here to smash away those winter blues with the sixth release on their trailblazing eponymous label. Kicking things off in a typically upbeat fashion, this Bristol-based collective enlists legendary singer David Boomah and Run Tingz resident MC Jamaican-born Blackout JA.
The release features five (yes, five!) mixes of the tune with international Jungle legends RCola, Tester and newcomer HoT on the remix duties! The vinyl also features a slightly more dubbed-out amen remix from the label bosses G.Tactix and J.Man so there is something here to keep everyone happy!
The release will be available on 12″ vinyl and digital formats from January / February 2012. There are also a run of limited edition posters being given away to celebrate the release so if you want to get your hands on one (and there only 50) send your FULL NAME and ADDRESS here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tippa Irie‘s new single “Free” is based on a true-life experience, and like most of his songs, it is written straight from the heart.
