The best and most interesting jungle or drum'n'bass music has always been the kind that draws deepest on the music's reggae roots; the juxtaposition of languid, smoky basslines and frenetic double-speed breakbeats has always packed a special wallop, more so than the chillier, all-digital variety. The two volumes in the Greensleeves label's two-disc Ragga Jungle Anthems series offers a case in point. Although it would have been nice to have some roots reggae artists scattered in among the rockstone deejays and loverman dancehall crooners, and although most of the tracks on this first volume run far too long (about five minutes, on average), this collection does a good job of presenting the state of the art in ragamuffin junglism. Chakademus and Pliers have never sounded more confident and powerful than they do in this jungle setting of "Gal Wine" (mixed by Ridley Don), and there are exceptionally fine remixes of Dawn Penn's classic "No No No" and Barrington Levy's "Under Mi Sensi," as well. Bounty Killer shows up on almost half the tracks, which is a few too many, but he's a good choice for this kind of restlessly energetic material. Only the pedestrian slackness of Admiral Bailey's "Jungle Punanny" really disappoints. Highly recommended overall.

The city has been quiet lately, with no big stories for Scoop and Rusty to sink their teeth into. They are on their way to cover a society wedding, a new low for them in Rusty's opinion, when Scoop spots something suspicious lying on the front yard of a house. They get out of the car for a better look, and it turns out to be a body! Upon closer inspection, the corpse seems to have turned to stone. A man comes out of the house to see what was going on. He's shocked when spotting the body, identifying it as his old friend, George Hawkins. He laments the curse that has befallen his comrade, piquing Scoops curiosity. He and Rusty help the man take the body inside, so that they can find out more about this "curse". The man, William Davis, tells the story of how he, along with Hawkins, Andy Henshaw, and Marlin Rogers, went on an expedition in India to search for the famous Ibor Jewels. The natives warned them that any who touched the jewels would soon have their bodies turn to stone. They should have listened, Davis moaned. Andy Henshaw had become stone soon after coming back to the states. And now Jenkins, which only left Davis himself. Scoop asks about Rogers, and Davis replies that Marlin Rogers was lost in the jungle during the return trip, he was presumed dead. Scoop then wonders if he could see the jewels. Davis cashed in most of his share, only a single gem remained. Henshaw's share was never found after he died, but Hawkins share should still be in his safe at his home. Davis knew the combination, being his closest friend, so he takes Scoop and Rusty up to Hawkins home to check. But when they get there, the safe is empty! As if someone had already cleaned it out. Scoop is interested in solving this case, and he already has a good idea of who's behind it all.
Marco is subdued by the bandits as his pet cheetah fights against the snares they carry against it. But even the cheetah is soon caged. The Polos are bound and forced to ride along with their slaver captors. For weeks, they trudge along with the group, receiving only leftovers of food and water. Then, finally, they reach a thriving city. They pass through the streets and come to a high-walled courtyard, where the group separates. One of the bandits then marches the Polos forward. They are kicked, one-by-one, down a deep stairwell into a poorly lit dungeon. Marco, the last to go, grabs his captors leg as he falls, pulling the man down with him. The bandit falls unconscious when he hits the bottom, but unfortunately, the door still closes before they can escape. The Polos tie up and gag the bandit, feeling his comrades probably won't feel a need to look for him right away. They also arm themselves with his weapons, two knives and a sword, tucked beneath their clothes. The door above opens right at that moment, and a voice summons them in Chinese. Maffeo says it would be best to obey right now, as they are still in the bandits' city and are outnumbered.
Chuck finds Miss Virginia in the rustlers' cave, but because of the mask he is wearing, she thinks him another of the Cougar's hired guns. Chuck removes the mask so she can see it's him. Together, they plan to fool the guard outside, little knowing that he is eavesdropping on their conversation. Pedro, the guard, waits for them to emerge from the mouth of the cave with his gun drawn. As soon as Chuck and Virginia step outside, Pedro forces them to put up their hands! He moves them to his horse, making Chuck mount first. Using quick reflexes, Chuck draws his own gun, turns and fires on Pedro, hitting the thug on the hand and making him drop the gun. In a rage, Pedro rushes Chuck, sending them both sprawling. He pulls out his knife and makes to stab Dawson to death, but Chuck hits him hard, tackles him, and then uses his own lasso to tie the fiend up. After dragging Pedro into the brush, Chuck and Virginia take his horse and ride down the trail.
For more than a half century, Kool & The Gang have been synonymous with a special, ever-changing kind of soul music - blending rhythm and blues, disco, jazz and funk, with a few decades of hits as a result. Edsel will celebrate Kool's legacy with a series of box sets starting with The Albums Vol. 1, a 13CD set including the group's studio and live output from the majority of their time together during the '70s.
Formed by a troupe of high school friends in Jersey City, NJ (including brothers Robert "Kool" and Ronald Bell on bass and keyboards, trumpeter Robert "Spike" Mickens, and Dennis "D.T." Thomas on trombone), Kool & The Gang signed to manager Gene Redd's De-Lite label, recording a bevy of diverse albums that defied easy pigeonholing. As a result, success was slow to find them for a few years. Things changed with 1973's Wild and Peaceful, a Top 40 pop album and Top 10 soul album that spun off two stone-cold dance classics: "Jungle Boogie" and "Hollywood Swinging," both of which became Top 10 pop hits.
After the period covered in this box, Kool & The Gang would enter a sustained hot streak on the pop charts, amassing another 10 Top 10 pop hits in disco and soulful vocal styles. But what this box may lack in chart hits, it certainly isn't missing heart; it's the most definitive package on Kool's early years ever assembled. (With the Vol. 1 marker, it's a good bet that Edsel will be covering later periods.) The Gang would continue to record and tour through the decades, releasing an album, Perfect Union, through Omnivore last year. It was the last works of both Ronald Bell (who since took the name Khalis Bayyan after joining The Nation of Islam in the '70s) and Dennis "D.T." Thomas, who passed away in 2020 and 2021.
Antarctic Press has published some big hits like Ben Dunn's Ninja High School, Warrior Nun Areala (Check it out on Netflix- #SaveWarriorNun), Fred Perry's Gold Digger, and over 5000 other comic titles.
Graphics: Richly detailed settings and character models make the action seem all the more lifelike. You'll perform hits in such locales as a busy Hong Kong street and a steamy Columbian jungle that looks like where Oliver Stone shot his movie Platoon. Plus, the cinematic third-person view lets you see your character using bad-ass weapons.
Sound: Much of the voice acting sounds cheesy and negatively stereotypical, not to mention that even the jungle Indians speak English and that all guards say "Hey" before they shoot at you. Luckily, the weapon sounds rock and roll.
Vinyl Revolution is a collection of 500 samples taken directly from old vinyl records and processed with various gear. Each drum hit has been captured using various turntables and taken from a vinyl collection spanning decades. Great care was taken to select the best sounding hits and each sound was isolated and chopped at zero-point crossings.
4 hours special jungle mix with tunes from: Tim Reaper, Ed Rush, Nico, J-Majik, Abstract Drumz, Panacea, Serum & Bladerunner, Daniel Silk, Source Direct, Holsten, Adred, Commix, Response, Fat Controller, Dread Recordings & Brainkillers.
When they weren't making frequent appearances on tabloid covers that breathlessly predicted their marital demise, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown each managed to release greatest hits packages this year.
Houston proves she is the diva with her 36-song greatest hits double CD retrospective. Disc 1, "Cool Down," includes her "Bodyguard" ballads and love songs. On "Throw Down," disc No. 2, Houston gets uptempo with remixes of her dance hits, including a new, tongue-in-cheek "How Will I Know?" Whitney's Olympic-range voice is showcased in "One Moment in Time," recorded for the 1988 Olympic Games. Her rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" (performed live at Super Bowl XXV in 1991) ends the hits on a high note. 2b1af7f3a8
