I’m really excited to bring S.U.R.E. to our Renegade Riddims series. they’ve created a banging new mix featuring a lot of old skool jungle from artists such as Rebel MC, Lennie De Ice, Renegade, Deep Blue, Goldie, Dillinja, Top Cat and more. They’ve thrown in some of their own edits and unreleased material for good measure! I reckon these guys have a big future ahead of them and I’m here for it…old skool and rave music will never die!!

Q&A:

Sum up this mix in 10 words…

A tribute to the foundations and future of jungle music

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

The Ratpack – Searchin’ for my Rizla – it’s a quintessential 90s rave track; its infectious ragga energy and breakbeats perfectly captures early jungle’s rhythm and bass-heavy sound, and remains a staple in the genre’s legacy.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

We hope our admiration and respect for the genre shines through and if anything else it’ll be great to dance to. Plus it includes some unreleased S.U.R.E. dubs!

Tell us about your next EP…

Our next EP is a release of our track “Here We Go Again” coming out on OZO Records. It’s a proper 90s throwback 4×4 rave stomper of a tune. Classic chops and breakbeats which’ll hopefully take you back to that era of dance music.

What have you got coming up?

In addition to the EP we also recently launched our label and studio in Shoreditch called Matter of Time.  

When was the last time you actually raved?

Our last proper rave together would’ve been towards the end of last year at The Warehouse Project in Manchester – killer lineup and plenty of dancing until the early hours.

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?

To quote the great Goldie; “If you’re gonna be good at something, be good at it. No matter what it is”
