SUBB1996 – an offshoot of STRAIGHT UP BREAKBEAT – re-imagines the golden era of early & mid 90’s jungle. Kicking things off with a balanced 4 track EP by up & coming AEON FOUR.
Aeon Four is a Jungle Breakbeat duo based in Turku, the original rave capital of Finland. A sonic fortress made of bass, breaks, bleeps and vibes, they aim to bring together all types of bass-heavy, breakbeat-driven music with no strict genre boundaries.
Brothers Matti & Heikki have recently released a string of releases on hardcore-flavoured UK labels such as Boomsha & Raveskool. On PURE WHITE EP they’ve found the perfect blend of rave & early jungle influences with a contemporary twist. Ranging from the uplifting PURE WHITE & soulful WITHER to the classic jungle of HURT & RESPECT theirs is a modern take on the original sound.

Having rounded off 2018 in style with his debut EP for the mighty Metalheadz, Fanu the beat manipulator opens 2019 with a bang. Marking the return of Straight Up Breakbeat - the 1st jungle / drum’n’bass label out of Finland established 1996 - Fanu delivers two majestic pieces of music.
12-bit sits nicely at 155 BPM mark, sounding fresh and vintage at the same time. Smooth pads coupled with drum patterns only a select few can construct.
The double A-side steps into jazzier mode but makes sure not to fake the funk. Tight beats and a half-tempo surprise at the end.
