I've been following the adventures of Mr. FFF since back when his Clash 7" dropped and I was an angsty 20-something, eagerly soaking up anything breaky and menacing. I mean, wow, that was like 16 years ago already... where has the time gone? :(

Most of the breakcore producers whose music walked with me through all those years have vanished. Doormouse living the life on a beach in Florida. Abelcain, last I heard, hanging drywall and creating epic, thematic musical masterpieces that no one will ever hear. And so many others who gave the world a few plates worth of great music and were never heard from again. But I digress (old age will make you do that, from time to time. ha).

Then you have FFF, with his musical output these days rivaling that of Venetian Snares at his peak (in volume AND quality, if you ask me). He seems to have found a comfortable home in the midst of a 90's jungle revival and I'm fucking loving it. I've been grabbing every plate I can, especially loving his Myor Massive releases and the ones on the Prospect RVLT label, which is the umbrella under which this one falls. And I have to say, I think this is the best out of the four RVLT releases of his so far. Ruffneck bizness through and through, working the ever loving shit out that amen break. He goes straight up ravecore at times and balances it out with deep, rolling, pressurized jungle, ragga chants and hints of big, angry techstep basslines here and there. He just gets better at this every year and it's comforting to know that, somewhere across oceans and outside of my dusty bedroom that is overflowing with forgotten grooves, there is a scene that is showing this guy some well-earned appreciation. The fact that so many labels are scrambling to put his music on wax, all these years later, tells me that this music still lives. And that makes me happy.

Thanks for all the great tunes Tommy, keep em comin and I'm gonna snag every one I can. That international shipping these days is a wallet murderah (lol) but I don't give a fuck, good music is a light in a dark, dark world. Gonna go check out that Dubcore 12" that just hit my mailbox now and then I'll probably have some overly dramatic words about that one too. :)
