With years in the studio perfecting his sound, Ricky Force makes Jungle the only way it should be made: like it still matters.
'Celestial' nails the adventurous atmospheric style of '93/'94 Jungle, capturing the bitter-sweet euphoria of a time when UK Rave culture was peaking - and the urgency of one last dance before dawn. Meanwhile, 'Falling' rolls out heavy but melodic, underpinned by the deepest of subs.
Fans of vintage Neil Trix, Intense, DJ Rap and early Good Looking should buy on sight. But if you missed out on the golden years of Jungle, this 12" is the perfect place to begin your education.
