It's been a while in between, but thought I should get back into it, did a mix at the beginning of last month that was basically only august tunes but there was a lot of other stuff in there as well, so didn't count it... I've got a couple of tunes from August in this one as well, cos they didn't make it into that one. Hope you enjoy it

Comoc released two Bangaloop EPs this month, pretty classic footwork/juke styles in these two releases, my favourite from vol1 being Ugly Mirrors, a blippy tune with enough variation and some great screaming. From vol2, Time For You is the standout, the bass getting a fair bit of a workout in this one compared to some of his other tunes.
PZG & Dubsknit’s aptly named We Rob Rave 2 heavily samples rave tracks of the 90s, and they’re mostly hits if you ask me. They range from jungle heavy to more traditional footwork.
Breaka’s Express Your Groove is also more on the jungle side of things, Pull & Release is a throwback to 95 jungle, while The Mistake has a bassline that could’ve been written by Om Unit, its half-step structure is backed up with jungle drums. Express Your Groove is more of the same only a more seemingly scattered drum kit. Itoa’s remix of The Mistake goes in a different direction completely, it has a percussive and tribal feel to it.
Mexico based JukeMX put out the first volume of Traxmex. This release sees some great tunes, including a footwork remix of Rihanna’s Umbrella, but the standout tune for me is BCOTB’s Little Thoughts, a chilled gem with heavy use of piano and subtle vocal sampling.
Itoa always brings something brilliant with each release, Strange Attractor is no different, with his signature footwork-jungle executed perfectly. Sully takes it further down the jungle end of the spectrum with chopped up breaks.
Kiruma’s How Did We Get Here gets the remix treatment by three excellent artists, A. Fruit’s being the standout. Lush synth work swooping all over on top of a pretty standard A. Fruit affair. The BSN Posse remix is also noteworthy, stripping things back a bit.
The Right Way EP by Lux Familiar is a perfect example of how is done. More Flava is just plain bumbaclaat good, while The Right Way utilises some pretty epic double bass samples to great effect.
Cheers for checking out my blog. Hopefully I’ll be back next month with some more J
