Micky Finn |
V2E (Vital Elements)
For those lucky enough to be at the birth of Jungle in the 90’s you’d have undoubtedly come across the legendary Micky Finn who, packed with his arsenal of dubplates, led the charge and paved the way for Jungle and Drum & Bass as we know it today.
After a brief production hiatus, Micky’s back on the scene to lead the way once again. This time he’s teamed up with Vital Elements, one half of today’s Jungle pioneers Serial Killaz, who brings something very different to the table.
So Good certainly has a nod to Micky’s past, with vocals taken from the personally influenced jazz funk classic ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’ by the Peach Boys. Let’s make this clear; there’s nothing else nostalgic about it, So Good is a forward thinking, feel good beast that will be as infectious on the dance floor as it will on radio. With early support from S.P.Y to Logan D, So Good is set to land heavy with the masses.
On the flip we have True Guidance, a rare moment in music where barriers are smashed down and classics are made. It’s clear Micky & Vital Elements went all in on this one. It’s got bounce, balls and enough energy and vibes to rock festivals to sweaty basements. With vocal samples from the 80’s yard classic ‘Country Man’, these two once again show how moving forward with a glance to the past is done properly.
Not content with smashing up dance floors worldwide with their unique brand of Jungle, Serial Killaz have been building their foundation label; Serial Killaz Recordings. With prolific releases from the likes of Upgrade, Turno and Jam Thieves in the bag they continue pushing the movement forward with a slew of artists both new and established. This latest release drops just after the huge success of Cain1’s and Angelo Pantin’s lovers anthem “Young Love” with the ever talented works of T.I. coming soon.
