The Bad Boyz of jungle are back in town bb!
Kingz Of The Jungle / Bad boy Roller // KK og mix /// False Flag rmx
Fresh like morning snow, cold blooded like the hands of the Senate. Kingz of the Jungle has just dropped enough heat into the jungle ethos to make Fargo feel like Cancun. This past holiday week, the homie good ol’ Saint Killagain, dropped a legitimate dubplate upon the junglist massive. A pair of heavyweight selections that have gotten some underground circulation amongst dj’s close to the Kingz. But now, its out for all to covet. It shall be used to push the limits of speaker stacks around the world.
This is no where close to being Kip Killagain or False Flag’s first rodeo releasing huge signature tunes. Both, apart of the game since the 90’s. Have resided in Northern Arizona. Consistently over the decades raising the bar, setting standards, and showing nothing but love for jungle and dnb. These two assassin’s have been lurking in the darkest part of the forest and rugged wilderness. Honing a skill set that is built for success. From djing, to production, running a label, throwing events, booking tours, and building a scene from scratch. These guys do it all. With a precision and tact unknown to most.
Killagain has had previous releases on X-13 ( the infamous west coast label collab between him, U-ome & Morphius) , Sound Sphere . While False Flag crossed directly into the pit of darkness. Releasing heavy dark dnb with iconic labels Tech Itch: & Sound Sphere . Whether its a tough roller like this release, heavy dark amen driven dnb , or classical mash-up jungle. Both of these technical jedi are equipped to produce music that stands the test of time. Keeping us deep in the jungle at all times.
LET’S GET INTO THE JAMS!!!
Bad Boy Roller gets two flips here. The A-Side being the original cut from Kip Killagain. Jumping straight into to the vibe. With a classic jungle break. Easing us into the center of the launch pad. Surrounded by an echo chamber of vocal licks, laser shots, and acid stabs. We are immediately transported to the time when deep bass and filtered breaks ruled the dance floors. Changeling the spitirs of jungle’s past. This takes me to the era where labels like Frontline , A-Sidez, Granja Kru, and Moving Shadow used to assault speaker cones. Turn our bodies into liquid , and releasing the blacker sides of serotonin in our brains.
False Flag’s remix of this cut goes deep into the serpentine lair. Maintaining the same vibe as the OG. Flag get’s heavier on the usage of chopped and filtered amens. Dropping in and out of the mix like SCUD missiles. Serving us the expected ration of gorilla bass and breaks that False Flag is known for. Taking a tune that has already dipped your toes into murky waters. Makes it hard to go deeper and darker. But Flag definitely goes beneath the crust and reveals a new splinter in the matrix. Super heavy dark dude business.
Since we both live in Arizona. I had a moment to catch up with my homeboy, Kip Killagain. Here’s some of the bits I gathered from our CHOP SHOP!!
What’s good my selecta!?
What’s good is Bad Boy Roller is now out and I am looking at releasing more music soon for Chinese New Year!
Honestly, I’ve been sitting on this tune for a hot minute. And it is so bad, it should be put in detention. It’s always a great thing to see people pushing the authentic jungle sound these days. Both of the rude boys have developed a standing reputation for producing great pieces of art. Representing the sound and culture that got most of us into drum and bass/jungle from the jump. This one just hits. Hits on all cylinders. The production and arrangement is top notch. With intent on lighting up the speaker coils, whilst practicing restraint on over compressing and layering the atmosphere to death. It’s the junglist equivalent of experiencing a grind house film.
This is supposed to be the year where “jungle” makes its comeback. I just want to re-iterrate the narrative many of us, who dwell under the camo nets share. Jungle isn’t coming back. It’s always been here. There are many of us that have never quit playing it. Producing it. Releasing it. As well as supporting it. It’s just a coalescing between the times changing and current trends getting tired. While many “yung bloods” and “new jacks” are discovering these sounds for the first time. It’s amazing that battle tested rockers like The Kingz are still laying down the truth for us. I highly encourage y’all to grab this release. Drop it for the homies, and watch necks break. When you need more of this for your fix. Go to the valley of the Kingz, Kingz Of The Jungle, and come cross with the realness.
