Thread Contributor: Alexander KozakopoulosCRITERION RECORDS 015 FFF/016 DRUM CYPHA OUT NOW

With a musical career of junglistic 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 create 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.
Drum Cypha makes a welcome return to Criterion Records for his first solo label outing, and he brings with him two exhilarating excursions into the deeper side of drum & bass.
With ‘Sun God’ we are presented with a series of hauntingly atmospheric pads and reversed keys, which soon evolves into an adrenalising fusion of rolling amen breaks, subsonic bass tones and electrifying mentasm flashes.
‘Ghosts Of Jupiter’ on the flipside layers rapid-fire, amen edits over a deep, rumbling bassline over ghostly pads and fragments of movie dialogue to create a precision crafted fusion of rugged and ethereal sounds.
