Few have served the jungle and drum and bass scene with quite as much distinction as Nicky Blackmarket, a genuine scene pioneer who remains popular on the UK club circuit after three decades in the game. Given these credentials, you'd expect his latest mix CD - his first for two years - to be rather good. It's certainly a thrill-a-minute affair, with Blackmarket squeezing 50 slammers onto two CDs. You'll find jungle revivalism old and new, party-hearty jump-up faire, darker and more aggressive workouts, classic reggae and ragga influences, some deliciously dreamy liquid diversions and more mind-altering wobble basslines than your average Skrillex set. In other words, it's a top-drawer party-starting mix-up.
