Johannesburg's finest producer (the only one I know, but I'm sure it's true) - Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
Been playing this Jumping Back Slash a lot--it's a great combo of South African vibes, classic US house, and everything that's relevant in the UK right now.
He makes visionary broken beat/funky deep tech that subtly samples field recordings of various South African tribes and assorted African percussion.....
(DJ Mag Aug 2010)
Jumping Back Slash is...a very badman
and I will be bumping that shit heavily
on my show. Props! Sickness.
(Alexander Nut - Rinse FM/Eglo)
Been listening to this album at home
a lot this week...just takes the edge
off anytime of day basically...feeling
this whole record.
(Benji B - BBC Radio 1xtra)
Ibhithis 5, 7 and 8 are all perfect!
Proper straight but with dubbed
out sounds panning round your
headspace. Synths are so on point.
Vocal on 8 pure deepness too.
(Mosca - Bruk Magazine/Night Slugs)
This is a record not to sleep on!
(Jon Hanuman - Steak House Records)
Literally the best house record I've
heard this year...Get involved!
(Neon Skullz - Aztecs On Acid/Egyptians On Ecstasy)
Feeling the second free beat a lot.
Would love to hear more of this guy!
(Bok Bok - Night Slugs)
I think these tunes are bangin'!
(Dubbel Dutch - Palms Out Sounds / Curb Crawlers)
We’ve had a copy and man It’s been on repeat
play since we got it. It was just what I, for one, was after!
It’s full of Deeep African/Kwaito House bangers,
just what the Doctor ordered!
(DJ Umb-Generation Bass)
Absolutely loving the JBS album...
It's just the perfect mix of kwaito
rhythms and bittersweet ravey vocals...
(Tom Allan - Tactile London)
Liking ...the tunes, reminds me a bit
of old warriors dance stuff.
(Warlock - Sub FM / Rag & Bone)
I played no 3 on the show the other
day, keep em coming!
(NoYeahNo - Sub FM / Rag & Bone)
Cheers for this, liking it!
(I.D. - Bass Music)
