Zoot EP

Blue Mango 06:19


K3Bee returns to Next Phase Records with four tracks
of retrospective drum and bass, paying homage to
the music’s golden era.

Notably heavier than his previous NPR release, the
“Bristle EP”, this collection explores the experimental
and rugged side of 90s jungle. Taking elements from
hip hop, ambient and jazz, the “Zoot EP” reflects a
time where the scene was an alchemy of styles.

The title track, “Zoot”, has this ethos at it’s core.
Constructed with a medley of parts, obtained from
a variety of genres, then assembled to create something
fresh and different. “Blue Mango” features
an iconic jazz melody, which 90s hip hop lovers will
appreciate, and an amen drop that would have tore up
pirate radio back in 1994.

“Lo-Fi” takes us down the experimental path, full of
delay, atmospheric noises and more fantastically
edited amens. “Freedom” begins with industrial loops
and tech step beats before introducing the Blowfly
break and a bubbling b-line for an authentic jungle

A triumphant return to Next Phase for K3Bee, the
“Zoot EP” successfully reflects the myriad of styles
and sounds that flowed through the 90s drum and
bass scene.
