Jungle flavours run rampant through the latest Craigie Knowes 12". This time Frey (aka the prolific Benedikt Frey) joins the varied Scottish imprint to lay down 3 jungle infused rhythms. Title track 'Shadow' and 'D.Y.S.' expertly blend complex drums and morphing synthesis with the haunting and recondite vocals of Nadia D'Alo? on the A-side. PI rounds off the record with a more familiar jungle outing but is by all means as unique as the rest of the record. One for the heads, inside.

Electro elegance from the masterful Carl Finlow on his third outing on Craigie Knowes with 4 deep and unique electro tracks. 'Descent' bringing us below he waterline while 'Undertones' drags us down on a colourful journey to the uncertain deep, turbulent currents roll through 'Cascade' before reaching the twilight zone for the fantastic 'Displaced'. Carl Finlow has built a reputation on taking listeners to the stars and the future, but this record beckons us to the icy deep and the distant past. Third time is the charm it seems.

The Burrell Connection is somewhat a resident with Craigie Knowes; he lived in the same flat in Glasgow with label boss Max when he started the label in 2015, he featured on the first release, he contributed to second fundraiser album, he's also played half of the parties at their Glasgow home, La Cheetah Club, and travelled with the Craigie Knowes DJ team to wow crowds around Europe. But enough of the history, this is now - The Burrell Connection's debut EP with the imprint, Hyper/Orbit. Hyperactive techno and breaks blended together, emotive pads, 808 basslines and that ever-creative and homage-paying sampling ability that The Burrell Connection's noble followers have come to love. It's Scotland's poster-boy at his finest. Diversity is the key to longevity.
