Dead Man’s Chest: Throwing Shades 12″ EP

Not sure how I missed out on this guy until now, but this is KILLER ’95-style jungle. Atmospheric pads, super harsh, gritty breakbeats, slower hip-hop/ragga samples, and maximum headrush. I’m sure dedicated junglists can probably tell that these are new recordings rather than unearthed dubplates from back in the day, but it taps into that sound perfectly. Some might call this retro, then, but to me anything that sounds like this is always going to be relevant to my life. Looks like he has half a dozen records out before this one, all of which are probably hard to find for cheap by now. I’m hooked.
