On previous outings, Toronto bass head Rumbleton has stuck to a retro-futurist script, delivering killer tributes to '93 style jungle. While it's been two years since his last single, it's quite heartening to find that he's still as obsessed with the roots of drum & bass as ever before. To be fair, A-side "A New Day" accompanies some brilliantly cut-up jungle breakbeats and pounding sub-bass with the kind of dark textures you'd find on Burial records, as well as some tech-step style electronics. B-side "Conscious", on the other hand, doesn't strive as hard for experimental acceptance: while the fearsome 'riddims' are savagely cut-up, the booming bass and rastaman vocal samples could have been taken wholesale from early jungle classics.
