One of the most exciting UK bass labels at the moment has got to be Black Butter Records. Based in London, the label features the cream of current nu-jungle, dubstep and bass artists such as Cinematic, Woz and RackNRuin aka Matt Scott. Check out rackNruin’s already classic Soundclash ft dubstep vocalist of choice Jessie Ware, a track that has gone some way to creating nu-jungle.
This sound takes its cue from 90’s jungle
but slows it, chops in some sub-bass, garage, electro or in Soundclash's case a tasty organ lick and some garage influenced breaks. Also crucial to this sound is Warrior One's Fyah (released on Black Butter). Check out the soundcloud for a load of free downloads, updates and mixes. This is a seriously exciting label.
