When jungle and drum and bass first started to branch out of the UK, one of the very first places it took hold of was Germany. With long running parties like Dreamland spreading the sound since 1995, the sounds of jungle have had a home there since the start of this movement. Flash forward to 2016 and Germanys top names are among the top in the game. Names like Phace, Current Value, Misanthrop, Neon Light and more. In the last few years Brian Brainstorm has been releasing music that will see him on this list of heavy hitters before too long. Last fall I wrote about his release on Liondub International for the Street Seriesand said you should keep an eye on this producer from Cologne, Germany. Well he is back with another installment of the Street Series and it is even more diverse then the last.
Brainstorm’s aggressive, signature Jungle sound is fused with the heaviest elements of reggae and Drum and Bass to guarantee the title in any rave or clash. Spain’s Ricky Tuff joins in on production for two final tracks that seal the deal with weight. Brainstorm continuously produces tried and tested, go-to Jungle bangers and his notoriety and respect on the circuit keeps steadily rising.
My choice cut on this EP is Right Now. It is filled with a doubled up step beat with classic dubbed out reggae keys and unmistakable classic jungle bass line that takes me right back to the days of Lucky Spin, Suburban Bass and the likes. Perfect for the club, house party, or summer time drive with the top down and system turned up. The whole EP is out today and instantly makes your collection just a touch bit cooler just by being in your crate!
