The New Selecta Vol. 1 is the first of 3 new records to be released by Richard Wilson under his Rognvald moniker via WIFETRAX on Love Love Records.
The New Selecta is an explosive exploration into uncharted territory of the deepest and dankest UK jungle using a 'future-old skool' template. Deep, gut-busting bass fires down through swampy ambient clouds while hyper-edited breaks crack like lightning, swelling into moody skanking grooves. The hyper-retro-futurist junglizm of The New Selecta rushes too relentlessly to have been put out all at once so listeners will get their fix in 3 instalments in order to prevent fainting.

dgoHn's third release for Love Love, which stays in stylistic unison with its predecessors - complex patterns of precision-crafted choppage in an uncommon approach somewhere between drill'n'bass, breakcore and electronica. Works the best for active home-listening due to its ambitious workmanship and not least because of its stunning mastering quality which we are not used to in most of the contemporary drum and bass productions. Absolutely worth listening. Aimkraft

The idea that the beats in this are programmed and not some interstellar jazz drummer bringing the funk with some incredible tech-fusion kit is a little hard to wrap your head around. It sounds so natural and gloriously flowing. Thoroughly recommended. Egg Wizard
