For those of you lucky enough to be at the birth of jungle in the 90’s you’d have undoubtedly come across the legendary Micky Finn who, packed with his arsenal of dubplates, led the charge and paved the way for jungle and drum & bass as we know it today.
After a brief production hiatus, Micky is back on the scene to lead the way once more. This time he’s teamed up with Vital Elements, one half of today’s jungle pioneers Serial Killaz, who brings something very different to the table.
‘So Good’ certainly has a nod to Micky’s past, with vocals taken from the personally influenced jazz-funk classic ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’ by the Peach Boys, but let’s make this clear; there is nothing else nostalgic about it, ‘So Good’ is a forward thinking, feel good beast that will be as infectious on the dance floor as it will on radio. With early support from S.P.Y to Logan D, ‘So Good’ is set to land heavy with the masses.
On the flip we have ‘True Guidance’, a rare moment in music where barriers are smashed down and classics are made. It’s clear Micky & Vital Elements went all in on this one. It’s got bounce, balls and enough energy and vibes to rock festivals to sweaty basements. With vocal samples from the 80’s yard classic ‘Country Man’, these two once again show how moving forward with a glance to the past is done properly.
