Jungle Buddha - Green Buddha EP
Release Date: 15th December 2017
7th Storey Projects goes deep into the archives again and is very proud to present it's latest offering - an official repress of one of the nastiest, darkest, hardest and most sought-after Jungle Hardcore releases around. Jungle Buddha - The Green Buddha EP.
Made in a bedroom in darkest London town circa late 1992 by Mark Loy (Jungle Buddha), this EP has become known as a something of an influential precursor to the dark and gritty 'darkcore' sound that became prevalent in the rave scene in 1993.
Featuring three tracks of nasty, dark crunchy breakbeat hardcore, only veering off temporarily to offer the equally dark hardcore techno-styled 'Psalm IV'; this EP is not for the faint of heart.
With originals scarce and reaching resale prices of up to £200 on the second-hand market, the track on this release have been taken directly from the DAT masters, given some loving restoration treatment by Kieran Alexis at Simpatico Mastering and finally remastered and cut by the marvellous Beau Thomas at Ten Eight Seven Mastering - these low-fi gems have been given a new lease of life!
Pressed by Optimal:Media GMBH in Germany on 140g black vinyl.
