Urbanocturnal – Pirate Vibrations Part 1

March 23, 2017 on 8:40 pm | In Around The Web | No Comments

” This mix was supposed to be the sequel to Junglist Credentials Part 1, but when I finished it I realised that it has a very different sound so I decided to give it a new name instead of simply calling it “Part 2″. The idea behind it is the same, however: to recreate the atmosphere I experienced while listening to London’s pirate radio as a teenager in the mid-90s. The track listing dates back to circa 1994 and once again there are a few lesser known tunes thrown into it for good measure. ”

Selectabwoy – Eclectic Samples Mix Part II [09/01/2017]

January 11, 2017 on 7:24 pm | In Around The Web | No Comments

A second journey into the more esoteric sample roots of breakbeat culture. Like the first mix it’s an anything-goes, multi-genre mash-up with set-pieces and references to obscure hardcore, jungle and DnB tunes from back in the day. Had loads of fun sourcing the tracks and piecing them together; once again I’ve pushed the boundary of my own sanity during the construction, but hopefully it was worth it.

Massive shouts again to the RolldaBeats forummers, WhoSampled and Discogs contributors for making this kind of thing possible, you guys are the best…

Selectabwoy – Eclectic Samples Mix

December 1, 2016 on 4:40 pm | In Around The Web | No Comments

Selectabwoy :- 

Final mix (for 2016 at least) in the sample-spotter series.
I’ll tell you straight, this was a labour of love – two weeks of hell staring at my iPhone to put this together, but worth it all in the end.
It’s a selection spanning numerous genres from the 60’s to the 90’s, the common thread being – as ever – that each track was sampled by the hardcore/rave/jungle/DnB scenes – some have just one signature sample, others have been frankly rinsed the fuck out. Some of these records are incredibly obscure, dug up with help from the RolldaBeats and WhoSampled camps – others are long-standing personal favourites of mine.
This time I’ve included a few cheeky set-pieces based around reconstructions of hardcore/jungle tracks, or at least paying tribute to them, so keep an eye out for D’Cruze’s Bass Go Boom, 4 Hero’s darkside classics Journey From The Light and The Elements; a trio of Foul Play samples, a cut-up reconstruction of Leviticus’ The Burial, a 115bpm tribute DJ Hype’s Tiger Style, and plenty more besides. I can assure you that no jungle records were harmed in the making of this mix, original sources only. And they are so good. As ever – hope you enjoy.

Selectabwoy – Give Me A Break!

November 19, 2016 on 2:55 pm | In Around The Web | 1 Comment

Selectabwoy :- Yes. This one’s all about the breaks.

We’re going back, way back to the foundation, with a selection of original soul and funk classics. Time for me to pay homage to some of the original artists, notably the drummers, that gave us the backbone of hardcore, jungle & DnB.

Put this one together fairly quickly, choppy mixing, no messing about, just wanted to let the tracks speak for themselves. They’re all listed below and I’ll probably throw in a few examples of break usage for anyone who’s fussed. Most of these are pretty well-known but I’ve thrown in a few lesser-sampled ones. This is a mix I’ve wanted to do for ages; I’m only scratching the surface, could have kept hunting these tracks down forever, but you gotta draw the line somewhere! Less than a day after finishing the mix I discover Lucille Brown & Billy Clark’s ‘Both Eyes Open’… a personal favourite. Fuck it, it’s going on the next mix.

Massive shout to the guys at Rolldabeats forum (especially Beat-Findation who tracked down ‘Non-stop Home’ for me, props) – many of these sources I wouldn’t have discovered without your efforts. Big up. And an honourable mention for WhoSampled.

The Winstons – Amen, Brother
Isaac Hayes – Breakthrough
The Chosen Few – Funky Buttercup
The Commodores – Assembly Line
The Isley Brothers – Get Into Something
Rotary Connection – Life Could
The Head Hunters – God Made Me Funky
Kool & The Gang – N.T.

Selectabwoy – Hip-Hop for the Hardcore Heads

November 9, 2016 on 10:07 pm | In Around The Web | No Comments

Selectabwoy :- Yo. Here’s the next instalment in my series of sample-source mixes. This time we’re rewinding back to the late 80’s/early 90’s with a quality selection of old skool US and UK hip-hop (and a bit of hip-house thrown in). This started off as a quest to compile heavily-sampled tracks used in the early 90s rave/hardcore/jungle scenes, but then evolved a bit more into a listening experience, and I ended up throwing in a handful of lesser-sampled tracks as they had the right kind of vibe.

I’ll leave most of the sample-spotting to you. But this time around, besides the vocals and direct samples, there’s also a few original and second generation drum breaks up in the mix. Check Paris’ ‘Make Way For A Panther’ for the original ‘Angel’ break, Run DMC for the ‘Sound In Motion’ and ‘Some Justice’ drum loops… and Tuff Crew for ‘Hurt U So’ 🙂

Really enjoyed putting this one together, so I hope you enjoy listening. I had genuinely forgotten how good these tracks are – not to mention the ones that sampled them… high time to dust off my ‘92 collection and have an old skool rinse-out 🙂

Selectabwoy – Mid-90s Hip-Hop/R&B Mix (For The Junglist Sample Spotters)

September 25, 2016 on 3:03 pm | In Around The Web | No Comments

(download above in player)

Selectabwoy :- “I’ve had this mix in mind since hearing the Sing Time sample in Mary J’s ‘Be Happy’ leap out at me while shopping for paint in Wilko several years ago. A selection of golden era hip-hop and R&B gems, all of them (with one exception*) sampled on various jungle/DnB tracks in the mid-90s. Some are subtle, others, notably ‘How High’, were sampled to death. I’ll add that although most of these tracks I’ve known and loved for years, a few were new to me, hunted down for this purpose. Hope you enjoy, please leave me a comment if you’re feeling it… I could do with some motivation to work on similar mixes for hardcore/rave and breakbeat samples that I have vaguely sketched out :-)”

Great mix from Urbanocturnal :

 This mix contains a selection of Jungle tracks that I heard on London’s pirate radio in the mid-90s. The tracks are lesser known but for me they define the moment when Jungle was just forming as a genre, still very much underground yet flourishing for those who knew where to look and listen.
