Welcome back fam! Can we just take a minute to take in the fact that we are less than 30 days from Christmas and New Years and saying goodbye to 2017?? Anyone think we have a chance in hell of 2018 maybe being a turn for the upswing? I sure hope so. The nicest part about the end of the year is all the new releases currently flooding the airwaves. All those dubplates tearing up dance floors all summer finally coming to an MP3 or record near your earholes! Who’s checked the new Kid Drama? Those tunes are pure artistry, believe me. I’m still currently indulging on the new Om Unit release, Self. It plunges the depths of dark, atmospheric Jungle in a way you don’t hear often enough. That guy can really do no wrong by me. And UFO! dropped some serious knowledge at the end of last week with his Hyper Norm EP. Fully experimental, and in a way only UFO! could do. Get that one in your ear holes quickly. It’s nonsense not to.
You know what else would be nonsense? Not getting your jam on to this week’s NAPCast, clearly! We got a virgin sacrifice for you to boot! Hailing from Phoenix, AZ, we have a quick mix from Brandy Violent. She’s been holding it down for the desert crews over the last seven years. You might have caught on any number of dnb podcasts too, from DnB Girls, Vast Parlor on Junglist Radio, Barbaric Empire and The Best Drum and Bass Podcast. Ya grrl gets down to business inside this one. Whiney’s Flashlight makes an appearance, which always makes me happy Mixed in is some hard hitting jump-up and standard straight up dnb with a dash of ragga vibes for flourish. Quite the nice teaser from new blood, BRING US MOAR! Give it a spin peeps, and skank your Monday away!
