Solaris (12")
Cat: OKBR 050. Rel: 15 Oct 23
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Solaris (8:06)
First Ascent (8:06)
Review: Simon Huxtable's Aural Imbalance project remains as productive as ever some 25 years on from the first releases, and now newer labels like Okbron are stepping up to carry his work after taking so much inspiration from his approach to atmospheric drum & bass. Despite Okbron's capacity for reissues it seems these two joints are new transmissions and they certainly have a sparkling finish which speaks to Huxtable's experience and precision in the studio, but there's also a gritty bite to the breaks and some rich depth to the synth work which ensures there's a generous dose of personality in these luxurious excursions into the deeper end of d&b.

Over The Horizon
Over The Horizon (limited 12")
Cat: OKBR 042. Rel: 08 Jun 23
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Over The Horizon (4:51)
Lead The Element (5:55)
Review: Okbron returns for a fresh new jungle twin-flame-kindling, in the form of two new vinyl cuts by UK producer Axis. Something rather new - basking in a funny interzone between jazzstep and techsteppy jungle - appears on these two titles, with 'Lead The Element' never letting up on its ethereal backing pads despite its contrastingly propulsive bass, and the titular 'Over The Horizon' evoking the feeling of gazing off into heavenly distances with its whooping spiritual jazz samples and chorus'ed bass and guitar licks.

Cloudsurfing (7:31)
Silver (7:32)
Review: Okbron's services to the jungle industry should be celebrated as they continue to tread the line between reissues and fresh material from established legends and emergent talent alike. Reaching back to 2020 and the early days of the label, they've hit on a winning streak with Good Looking veteran Big Bud, notching up four 12"s thus far and now reaching a fifth. There's no need to assure you of the quality on this 12", this is Big Bud after all, but slip 'Silver' onto your platter and you'll hear a masterclass in ambient d&b from one of the true architects of the sound.

Kush Mush (limited 12")
Cat: OKBR 055. Rel: 05 Jul 24
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Kush Mush
Review: Moody drum & bass purveyors are back with a new one from veteran producer Big Bud, a new signee for the label and evident Argus Panaures for the intersection of halftime, liquid and "night bus" (if you want to call it that). The 'Kush Mush' EP blends mournful vocal cries with subtle dramaturgic sound FX, as if to portray the expositional scenes of a contemporary desert spaghetti western turned sci-fi thriller (if the moody gas station image on the inner label is iany indication, that is). The title track years for something hidden, "somewhere inside you", while 'Lucky7' strikes us with its swung break and similarly dreamy bloopage, echoing the nimble, nigh weightless high that follows a slot machine win.

Slow Fall Part 3 EP
Cat: OKBR 034. Rel: 18 Nov 22
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Slow Fall (6:21)
Eliminate (6:49)
Review: Moscow's Okbron Records are back with a new set of digital halftime bangers by the usually more upbeat drum & bass veteran Bungle. 'Slow Fall' and 'Eliminate' are chillout moods for nightwalks, best listened to when walking down the street at dusk or at 3AM, with earphones in. Off-kilter rhythms and strange liminal zones are evoked on this new white label 12", like cityscapes buckling under the stress of internal conflict.

Slow Fall EP Part 2 (limited 12")
Cat: OKBR 032. Rel: 20 Jan 23
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Memory Lane (8:35)
Sun Step (7:34)
Review: For whatever reason. Part 3 of this EP series from Bungle on Moscow's Okbron Records dropped before this one, Part 2. Either way the drum & bass veteran has won us over again with two of his signature laidback rollers. They come with nice synth sequences and silky smooth drum breaks that manage to be powerful but comforting, certainly on 'Memory Lane' which also has the hint of nostalgia you would expect. 'Sun Step' is more stripped back, with smeared chords and more frosty textures up top and low, booming bass down low. Both are high-quality cuts.

Unfold (5:43)
Caught Leaving (5:23)
Long Distance (5:46)
Never Ending (5:00)
Presence (5:14)
Changing Sides (5:22)
Review: A neat complement to their ever-steady white label production - they're often found plugging up the perennially insatiable hole that is the popular demand for new jungle - Okbron Records flaunt their expressive side here, welcoming producer Bungle for a terse eight-track album revolving around drum & bass' latter-day sonic post-structures. The new album Long Distance indulges the esser-cited leitmotifs of the drum & bass arch-genre, such as halftime; Bungle flaunts the ability to tease out familiar emotions in the listener, without, however, succumbing to its same formalistic constraints (no, the snare does not always have to be on the second and fourth beats). Clean, plummy, hypnotic and verging on bursting, the likes of 'Unfold', 'Long Distance' and 'Caught Leaving' impress with their verging between light-footedness and controlled bassweight, as if to suggest this producer is constantly striving towards a perfection of the sound.

Brick Wall
Cat: OKBR 043. Rel: 25 May 23
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Brick Wall (5:18)
Inside Out (5:20)
Review: Ipswich's Steve Carr remains one of the greatest operatives in the field of d&b, able to flex his studio skills to any number of approaches from crisp, techy rollers to ruffneck amen crushers and plenty of other spaces in between. He's also the latest to sign up with Okbron, the label committed to unearthing forgotten dubplates and exclusives from the archives. In the case of Digital, we're treated to two fresh slabs which show the best of this consistently inspiring artist. 'Brick Wall' is a melancholic affair in the synth department, but there's some serious damage to be done when the 'ardcore stabs come slamming in around the drop. Meanwhile, 'Inside Out' toys with dreamy pads and vocal tones before locking into a widescreen, dubbed out soundscape that ranks among the finest works Digital has ever created.

Low Frequency Satellite
Cat: OKBR 045. Rel: 25 May 23
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Low Frequency Satellite (6:34)
Tian Fire (7:11)
Review: The quality d&b landing on Okbron just doesn't let up, as the prolific label turns its attention to Gen & Ryde, a new collaborative project between Mark Wilson and Ryan Miles. Mark Wilson is mostly associated with early Fokuz Recordings output from around 20 years ago, while Miles was dropping heat on Good Looking sister label Looking Good around the same time. If you love silken atmospheric d&b with a jazzy tint, you'll be more than satisfied by these immaculate conceptions, from the hazy funk of 'Low Frequency Satellite' to the smoky mood of 'Tian Fire'.

Drum & Bass / Jungle
I Believe (8:27)
Accepted Meaning (8:07)
Review: Krust has been more than generous in opening up the archives and letting die-hard junglists get access to some of his most prized plates from the glory days of Full Cycle and V Recordings. Okbron have been a great conduit for such wares over recent years, and so it continues with these deep-cover diamonds from one of the genre's greatest. 'I Believe' is a tightly clipped bit of drum flair with razor sharp programming, film noir chops and swooning pads - a truly soulful excursion for those who like their beats steeped in jazz. 'Accepted Meaning' is a rougher breakbeat workout which is just as next level, with bright and bold synth pads that join the dots between Detroit and Bristol in powerful fashion.

Lexicon (12")
Cat: OKBR 040. Rel: 10 May 23
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Lexicon (Final mix) (6:17)
Winds Of Pleasure (8:20)
Review: Mid 90s atmospheric d&b veterans Pariah have been enjoying something of a re-focus since linking up with Okbron in 2019. The prolific archival label has since invited them back again in 2021 and now they return for round three, and while we don't have the exact provenance of the tracks in question on this record, it hardly matters when the quality is so high. 'Lexicon (Final Mix)' is an aqueous beauty of a track, dealing in sweeping vistas of pads and a light-touch, rolling beat with that classic Pariah finish to it. 'Winds Of Pleasure' is a breezy affair with gossamer-light synth lines and a subtly Balearic feel which is just crying out for a drop at a daytime session this summer.

Aether (limited 12")
Cat: OKBR 046. Rel: 08 Jun 23
Drum & Bass / Jungle
Aether (7:24)
Expanse (6:43)
Review: South London d&b brothers Sean and Mark Roberts created Probe-One after growing up on pirate stations, inspiring Sean to buy a deck and mess around himself. It goes that the siblings were frustrated at the drip release of d&b cuts and took the initiative themselves. 'Aether' and 'Expanse' clock in at just over 15 minutes combined, the long and winding ambient buildups giving way to ginormous breaks on 'Aether', or receding into a more atmospheric direction circa the Playstation 1 'IDM' era. The A-Side is for the breakbeat inclined, filled with intensity and volume against its ethereal synth waves. Side B is for the late-night Pulse FM listeners, the gentle percussion of dawn breaking - it's almost relaxing if such a thing were possible.

Real Sportsman & DJ Rusty Dust - "Real & Rust" ('95 Reinvention)
PBK. - "20 Years"
Review: Okbron continues to plough into hidden corners of atmospheric d&b and jungle to find forgotten gems and give them a fresh airing. This time around they're turning to the work of Niko Brenscheid, the German producer who first emerged as Real Sportsman back in the mid 90s. He collaborated with Patrick Vollmari aka DJ Rusty Dust on the track 'Real & Rust' back in 1995, and now their synth-laden slice of Good Looking-styled jungle gets a tidy remaster for the modern age. Brenscheid and Vollmari also linked up as P.B.K., and their sultry jazz-licked track '20 Years' takes up the B-side of this high-grade 12".

Kaleidoscope (7:17)
Mystery Train (6:54)
Review: Okbron haven't slipped out any information about Theomega around this new release, but at this point the label's reputation is more than enough to draw you in for a listen. Curiosity will undoubtedly be piqued as soon as you hear 'Kaleidoscope' rolling out, but you'll be equally satisfied by how fresh it sounds. Somewhere past pure atmospheric chill and into dexterous backroom d&b, the programming is light as a feather and the mix is beautifully spacious, giving you ample room to marvel at all the angles from this hitherto unknown producer. 'Mystery Train' continues the trend on the B-side - even the flute samples are on point.
