Various Artist - Shadows LP - Function Records / FUNC050

#FunctionRecords is one of the most well-respected imprints not just within jungle music, but also across drum & bass., having been spearheaded by #Digital, a producer who’s garnered just as much of a reputation for his own cuts and crowd-moving DJ sets. One of the reasons why #Digital has stood the test amongst his counterparts is because he’s stayed true to his heritage, something which can be seen throughout the catalogue of #Function. For its fiftieth release he’s invited a host of producers to have their take on the label’s sound. To commemorate this compilation, names like #Nomine, #Calibre & #JetLi, #Klute and #DrumsoundAndBasslineSmith feature across its track listing, each delivering an exclusive addition to Function’s renowned history. The album shows the influence which #Digital has built throughout his career and it’s one decorated with music, much like the type which is showcased on the ‘#Shadows’ LP.

#Calibre and #JetLi’s hard-driving sounds are showcased throughout beginning cut ‘#LeastLoved’, whilst #A2Kiat comes next with his delivery of ‘#StrangerTings’. #Digital drops in for his own offering which comes in the rolling form of ‘#DubConscious’. #Nomine drops in alongside his alias #Outrage for ‘#BornAgain’ and newcomer #Kiljoy, formally known as part of #ConcordDawn, comes with the tear out sonics of ‘#GhostsofOld’. #NeedforMirrors then reworks #Digital’s ‘#Deadline’, followed by the lulling, immersive landscape of #Seba and #JrVallo’s ‘#Wasabi’. #TotalScience and #War prove they’re a force to be reckoned with on collaborative record ‘#SecondWave’ and the legendary #DJTrace appears with ‘#Spirits’. #Resound takes #Digital, the late #Spirit and #Flava & #Dissect’s ‘#Primal’, moulding it through his own lens. For a penultimate addition, '#DrumsoundAndBasslineSmith inject their dancefloor flavours on ‘#GodsNeverDie’. Then the cross-sub genre genius #Klute closes the album with ‘#SickofitAll’, drawing for his envy-stoking production standard.

Together, each track epitomises why #Function have reigned supreme since they first began releasing music. With the host of producers #Digital’s been able to pull in for ‘#Shadows’, it highlights just how imperative the label has been for the genre’s definitive figures.
