Over at Juke Music Forum, I was introduced to the music of hundreds of new artists. I started seeing one name pop up, in particular, that caught my attention. Crypticz. Jordan Parsons (Crypticz) is an English electronic music producer who makes some of the most forward-thinking and hardcore music around. His contribution to the burgeoning strain of dance music known as jungle footwork** is massive, as he drops bass bomb after bass bomb on the dancefloors and interwebz all over the world.
Crypticz has a new EP out on the record label, Dynasty Shit called Junglist EP – and complete with remixes by Sideswipe and 5ifty$ix K (aka StrangeFlow). ‘U Got Me,’ is one of the highlights on this 6-track EP, with an old school house vocal looped into a breathtaking Crypticz-style rhythm that combines old jungle breaks with footwork/juke-style 808 kicks and sounds. It’s hardcore, it’s fun, and it’s an altogether exciting release in a style of music that’s on it’s way up.
You can get it now for a few bucks @DynastyShit.com If you enjoy it, and you have a little cash to spend on new music, please consider spending just a little bit to help out everyone involved in this album – the full EP is three dollars, but each track is just $0.50, so even tossing a couple quarters towards your favorite track is helpful and very appreciated! :)
** ‘Jungle footwork,’ or, ‘footwork jungle,’ depending on which angle you’re coming from. In this case, I would call it ‘jungle footwork,’ as Crypticz’ music on this EP leans more towards jungle as the lead musical influence, than footwork/juke.
