    Bizzy B - Science EP Vol III

    Being quite the fan of the early jungle sound it often pains me to dig out a few dusty records only to find that for one reason or another, they haven’t quite survived the test of time. A recent spate of roughneck jungle releases, coupled with modern production and a fresh pressing puts paid to this particular problem. Another legend unearthed, Planet Mu follow up the blistering Remarc set with this ace 10” double pack from Bizzy B (Brain/Joker/Sub Base/Whitehouse) - a pioneer of junglist raves and hardcore pirate radio. Releasing records since '91, he is the man behind one of the most influential Hardcore/Jungle labels "Brain". The Science EP Vol.3 features all new material from Bizzy B, and follows up Volumes 1 and 2 that came out in '93 and '94 respectively. What you get is some killer bass-heavy amen break driven darkcore tumblin' without a moments pause for breath. Rather than being uncompromisingly experimental the EP just goes to show how floor-friendly such roughneck break chopping can be. Included is a rigorous rework of the classic ’16 Track Ting’, as well as ‘Darkside’ -currently getting quite a run from today’s jungle/drum and bass aficionados.
