Atmospheric jungle

For those fans of atmospheric jungle and breaks (hordes of you out there, surely?), two artists have been standouts for me recently: Tim Reaper and Thugwidow.

For a taster, see Tim's RA mix ( or 'Meeting of the Minds' collaborations (Vol. 2 is a stunner), and Thugwidow's 'Moons of Jupiter' or 'Authentic Experience'.

Two samples of Thugwidow's:

If it's to taste, the guy is outrageously prolific (17 albums and EPs in the last two years). That could be a bad sign for others, but not here.

Reaper's EP's on Lobster Theremin are pretty good as well!

Maybe a bit more rave/breaks inspired as opposed to pure jungle but still quality stuff.

Thugwidow can do no wrong in my opinion, so much great material.

Sully's Swandive e.p. last year was great

ASC's isolated systems LP although a bit 'colder' production wise was also fantastic

there's a new Source Direct release 'dangerous curves' and rumours of a repress of 'Baraka - I'll be there/nutty bass'

I really like Tim Reapers 'ardcore stuff on globex, the release with special request is also great.

nice to see a resurgence in this style always loved it.

Great tips. I loved Sully's 'Flock' from a few years back—'Swandive' continues in the same fine style, I see. The ASC release is brilliant.

The repress of I'll be there is confirmed, has apparently gone to the pressing plant already. Very much looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of that without paying ludicrous Discogs prices for an original. 

Favourite recent jungle (maybe not so atmospheric) releases for me have been the Globex corp series (vol. 5 especially good), some of Equinox's output through Sci Wax, and his recent Theme EP on GBW is also good. 

That said, I'm a sucker for the old stuff and am constantly buying up represses of older stuff and second hand bits when I can.

Here's a great atmospheric tune I picked up at HMV in Shibuya, Tokyo last year for a few quid.

Nice stuff.

In a similar kind of vein, I keep coming back to the mix that Raime did for FACT magazine a few years back - mostly 1994-ish tracks, but picked for a sort of moody gothic vibe:
