FFF: One Tribe EP

FFF used to be known for raggacore and noisy, violent breakcore two decades ago, but there was a definite oldskool rave bent to even his heaviest material. Now he’s easily one of the leaders of the neo-jungle scene, along with peers like Tim Reaper and Coco Bryce, who are also constantly hammering out high-quality atmospheric jungle and breakbeat tracks. This EP is straight-up breakbeat hardcore, filled with ravey riffs, slamming breaks, some acid bits, spacey breakdowns, the works. The title track has the heaviest breaks during its most intense section, but it’s all about the “one vibe, one tribe, deeper than you know, deeper than blood” refrain. “It’s Official” is acid house colliding with rave, and it has scratches, pianos, and rolling basslines. “Weak Capacity” is another winning combination of pitched-up Golden Age rap samples, rolling Amen breaks, and killer bass.
