With a musical career of junglist exploration spanning over two decades, the highly prolific Netherlands-based producer FFF (aka Triple-Times-F) presents his Criterion Records label debut with three stunning pieces of forward thinking jungle only available on vinyl.
The EP opens with the deep and dark atmospheric tones of ‘Badman Touchdown’, which expertly combines the experimentalism of vintage, drum and bass with rugged, ragga soundclash junglism. If you can imagine Remarc joining the Metalheadz crew, circa 1995 then you’ll be close to how this one sounds.
Up next the ‘Sounds Of Summer’ fuses together a fierce blend of frantic, hard-stepping breaks and thunderous bass pulses juxtaposed by soothing, jazzy Rhode’s keys to creating a perfect balance of light and dark elements.
Rounding off the collection, FFF delivers a brutally effective, jazz-jungle fusion with ‘Usually Peaceful’ which meshes together tear-out amens and warm Reese bass drones with funkified guitar licks and metallic sounding, time-stretched breakbeat manipulations.
