Vinyl Retention: Bungle

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Every Wednesday, Sardi lets us know what’s tickling his eardrums in the world of dance music…

It seems like it’s been a while since we heard anything from the Brazilian heavyweight Bungle. After releasing his ‘Memories’ LP in 2011, he’s laid low in the D&B world and flexed his production prowess on an unsuspecting Tech House audience releasing a slew of tasty cuts. Well… he’s back!

Stepping up to Marcus Intalex’s pivotal Soul:R label, Bungle drops two sublime cuts in the form of ‘Astral Travel’ and ‘Aura’. The A side keeps you hooked with a haunting synth melody that’s so deep you’ll need a scuba tank to keep you breathing. Crisp beats and faultless production as we’ve come to expect from the Sao Paulo superstar. The flip sees him take a more experimental trip through washed out atmospherics and razor sharp slices of percussion.

Outstanding release from one of the (sometimes forgotten) Brazilian heavyweights.

If you like what you hear, be sure to tune in to RTRFM’s Full Frequency between 3pm and 5pm, as Sardi and Dart explore the world of Drum and Bass and beyond.
