As drum & bass music has evolved over the last decade, it's spun into
a thousand strands of varying tempo, style, sound and texture. This
compilation, the first in a new series from Moving Shadow highlighting
specific approaches to drum & bass, focuses on the funk and jazz influence
in current d&b production.
Compiled by Alex Banks & Jay Hurren of the EZ Rollers, 'Drumfunk Hooliganz'
features ten tracks from an assortment of budding and established artists.
Using their expert knowledge of the contemporary scene, the EZ Rollers
have put together a superb selection of the funkier jazzy beats emerging
from the UK. "1998 has been a very funky year for drum & bass so far,
and the tracks we've chosen to put on the album reflect this. We wanted
to represent various styles and sounds from the harder funk to the jazzier
side of the equation and hopefully this will be apparent when you hear
the album. Drum & bass has strong links with jazz in the way that the
freeform nature of both genres is unhindered by rules and in the freeness
to experiment, this is also something we want to bring out in the album",
Tracks from established artists like the EZ Rollers, PFM, Tekniq and
JMJ & Richie set the standard for this album, and combined with quality
material from emerging artists like Mercer, the Successful Criminals,
Diablo and Inter Orbit Communication, the album delivers a collection
of first class funky breakbeats for those who like some jazz inspiration
with their drum & bass.
