Back once again with Jaxx in the building! Natty Dub launch release 52 across the world with ‘Grape Stomper’ and ‘Lemon Tree’. Two pretty tamely named tunes that really lure you into a false sense of security because trust us when we say... “it’s a warning!”.
Remember the wump wump bass from back in one of the many days of drum and bass? Well Jaxx has certainly given it a spring clean, chucked in some extra weight and made that whole genre defining sound into something fresh again. It’s the full driving force behind ‘Grape Stomper’ and even without knowing it, you are probably twitching your foot in anticipation.
‘Lemon Tree’ is certainly a nod to the Suv sound of the past with some bright and catchy lead instruments, polished breakbeats and of course... that Bristol bassline. Other recent releases from Natty Dub have certainly been a tip of the hat to Full Cycle and co and this classy release from Jaxx is really on the same wave. Sophisticated business.
