With the spread of bass & jungle music across the world becoming more and more apparent each and every week, it’s safe to say that we have never been more excited to explore the international production community and the sounds they are unveiling here at The 3000 Network. Today, we are rounding off your weekend in style as we once again continue our exploration with a trip to the southern half of the world, this time landing in Sydney for a look at the latest offering from Big Ting Recordings, a multi-genre label whose pushes towards both bass and jungle music have most certainly not gone unnoticed.
With this being one hell of introduction, we couldn’t help be drawn in to take a closer peek at what has been going down with the label roster. Today, we are getting involved with the campaign for their latest release as Arloski steps up to the hot-seat for a sizzling new two-track display giving us a tasty slice of the action currently going down across the water. We don’t normally find ourselves diving into sounds around the 160-170BPM range, but this one had something special that we couldn’t not talk about.
As far as EP’s within the techy D&B & jungle spheres go, this is definitely one that stands out as a unique piece of work, with ‘Ritmo’ providing us with the first dash of spice, sliding together intense drum arrangements with choir-like pad textures and a pulsating sub-below for a colourful display of high-octane sound design. Next, despite it’s more traditionally-leaning drum approach, ‘Intersekt’ is another dousing of fresh air, weaving moogy, acidic bass pulses and unpredictable percussive plucks into the composition with considerable ease. These are both then backed up by Monako’s break-heavy rework of ‘Ritmo’, which through it’s intense junglist-style arrangement, rounds us off with a bang!
We couldn’t resist getting involved further, which is why you can catch our exclusive 3000 Blog premiere of ‘Intersekt’ via the SoundCloud link below:
