"Americans call this Jungle, Only the true facts of it is that it is really hardstep as the title suggests. Jungle has no kick drum in the drum lines. That makes Jungle very rare. The comp has shinning examples of Hardstep and Dubplates. Such as the brillantly executed choon This is L.A. by Lemon D. Other Choons that keep this disc bouncing are Heroes Welcome by Dextrous and T. Bone. A classic in it's own right.Sample and Hold by Psykus Gives a more mellow side to the disc. Lots of reverb on the drums and horn drops foreshadow the evident coming of Jazzstep. Good quality rolls and bass make this choon a stomper. Ray Kieth's Lighter is another choon that has a groovin bassline. Though the drums tend to be softer than most hardstep/Dubplate, the hip hop dubs and bassline make it as strong as any hardstep. Step Pon Dub uses classic drum effects from 1995 Drum and bass tracks. The rolls are high quality, they move you brillantly. A classic choon that keeps on going. The only thing that made me sad about this album is that the songs on it are all edited. You only get about half the song. For example This is L.A. is about eight minutes long in its original cut. On this it's about four minutes long. It makes me wounder what we miss on the other songs. A good disc for any Junglist or Junglette. Just too bad you don't get the whole song."
