nice well rounded record here ~ my favorite track is dianetics...magic in music. great art to get lost in too. don't sleep on this one! This current era of labels releasing quality jungle on vinyl is truly great! Thank you 8205 - you rock!
8205 Recordings is back once again, bringing you four tracks of 95 amen badness by Darkman, aka Mark Morris. Primarily releasing on Flex Recordings back in the day, Mark returned in 2015 with an EP of long-lost killer cuts on the excellent Green Bay Wax label. Three years later and Mark is back, delivering more great tracks written 23 years ago but not released until now.
“Dianetics” is a lovely atmospheric jungle tune featuring simple but catchy piano and rolling amens, as much a joy to mix as it is on its own. “Take it Forward ‘95” is another nice vibey atmospheric track - one for the heads! On the B side, “Now Massive” steps it up with frantic crazy beatwork, numerous stops and starts, and timestretched ragga vocals. Finally, the bonus b2 track, “Jack’s Back” is an mashed amen beast, with frantic breaks and well known Shining samples flying by at well over 180 bpm.
This EP is limited to 450 copies and is distributed by Unearthed.
***** PLEASE NOTE THIS EP IS VINYL ONLY, NO DIGITAL DOWNLOADS ARE INCLUDED WITH RELEASE, JUST LOW-FI CLIPS ******

Pure synapse stimulating jungle from the early 90's.
Tunes that take you hostage, bring you to another dimension and gently transport you back leaving a feeling of extasy. This is what raving is about.
Thank you Harmony & Extreme! My timid personality (mtp)
