Cue Burn EP

Bristol's Mulder, known for his Drum and Bass releases on Urban Takeover in the late 90s, brings us 4 tracks here, between 145 and 150bpm. Now waving the flag for the small but loyal 'Hardcore Breaks' and 'J-Tek' scenes, Mulder encompasses Oldskool Breakbeat Hardcore, Jungle Tekno, Dubstep, Bassline and Drum and Bass in varied combinations with these tracks.

Cue Burn

With a bass sound reminiscent of Rusko's 'Jahoviah', this track makes use of the scratchy sounds of vinyl / acetate by using it as a build up to the drop. Horn stabs punctuate the intro with what sounds like a chorus of monks underneath. Big Jungle style chopped breaks make up the beats and bring it all together.

Dread Notes

A floaty intro gives a false impression of the terror to come. See if you can guess where the sample comes from. 'The longer the note, the more dread!' After a long distorted, squelchy bass note, 4/4 kicks bust in, building up to the breaks and a Techno style Drum and Bass bassline kicks off. Rave stabs in the middle bring the Hardcore element and then back to the dread.

Soundclash VIP

A well known Reggae sample is the main force of this tune, with nice rave stabs and 'yard tape' samples making up the rest. Good solid breaks and bass complete this homage to the days when Hardcore and Jungle were practically the same thing.


Good use of an NWA break with 4/4 kicks and a 'Bassline' bassline :P Forgive the lazy DJ SS sample, and the hoover, this is a just dance floor rinse out.
