Jaydan – Origins of a Rudeboy EP
Clattering amens and sinister stabs are the order of the day on the first track taken from Jaydan’s immense EP for Ganja. Dropping with a stepping beat and call-and-response bass combinations ‘Deception’ lovingly combines everything that’s great about old skool jungle with today’s drum & bass.
‘Original Rudeboy’ heads deeper down the old skool route, sounding like a track by Rude & Deadly straight out of ’95, this one will satisfy anyone who knows their D&B history.
‘Big Dog’ goes straight for the jugular with a modern dancefloor D&B smasher that will undeniably smack up the dance. This is Jaydan at his wobbly best.Rounding things off ‘Reece Headz’ should be a self-explanatory title. For those who are unsure you’re treated to some vintage Metalheadz style business here. Clattering Boymerang breaks are overlaid with grizzling bass notes to absolute perfection.
