Back in 2021 Velocity Press published the brilliant ‘Who Say Reload’, a book documenting the stories behind the biggest tracks of the jungle era. Written by Paul Terzulli the book featured stunning images by legendary photographer Eddie Otchere.
Velocity Press are now gearing up for the release of 2 ‘Who Say Reload‘ compilations to provide the soundtrack to the stories told in the book.
Like the book, the album covers the genre’s nineties golden era, and the many styles of D&B are represented. Pioneering producers and crowd-pleasing favourites sit alongside a few sought-after obscurities by the unsung heroes of the scene. Most importantly, there are some absolute bangers!
Jungle/drum & bass is approaching its 30th anniversary. Its sonic and cultural legacy is still being felt today. There’s still plenty of old music that might be “new” to some, and these tunes still pack as much of a punch as they did back in the day. That unique energy generated by a combination of breakbeats, bass and creativity never gets old.
The 16 tracks are spread over two volumes of 2 x 12″s, and there is also a 13-track digital version, taking you on a journey through music forged from raw breakbeats and basslines that soundtracked a culture of all-night raves, specialist record shops and pirate radio stations.
