Danny C : Vivid
It seems that no matter how many times people proclaim the "death of jungle", the genre's protagonists still come up with new twists on the breakbeat science blueprint. What producers like Danny C do so well is get the right balance between blissed-out drum'n'space and nosebleed techstep. It's jungle with maximum funk, full of fierce rulin' basslines that sound like the frontline of any World War I battle, but with beats and FX that blow like the breeze. Dark and light, yin and yang, Metallica and Belle & Sebastian, all in one record. Nice.
