Lightless Digital continues to put out some more Finnish d&b/jungle mastery. It’s time for Mineral to step up with his bangin’ four-tracker. “Mineral EP” consists of four tracks that will make d&b lovers dance and head-nod like there’s no tomorrow! Check out the soundclips below, and get the tunes at Juno, Digital Tunes, iTunes as well as all other good stores.
“Twisted Dream” explores the deep roots of break-oriented d&b with a proper heavy, in-your-face approach, getting all wicked with amens and apaches – Source Direct fans will go crazy for this oldschoolish tune…it’s hard to believe this one’s not from 1997!
“Mercury” is an eerie track that clearly pays homage to the Platinum-Breakz-era jungle, making you both shiver and brock out with its deadly basslines, tight drums & spooky pads. Not for the faint-hearted!
Finally, the classic Mineral track “Other Life” (released on In Da Jungle) gets the fresh revamp treatment it deserves from another talented Finnish junglehead, Trisector, who remixed the track to the proverbial next level – this is a serious dancefloor-smasher to all you neuro addicts out there.
This is a must release for all deeper dnb fans. Crank up the bass, put your dancing sneakers on and enjoy another Lightless release that won’t disappoint.

Fanu – Shogun (remix) [download www.mineral.fi_free_006]
Shogun (remix) by Fanu
Fanu is, without doubts, one of the most successful Finnish drum’n'bass & downtempo artists with a large scale of fans around the world. Fanu is a busy producer & DJ who spins vinyls around the world, and he has releases on quite a few labels: Subtitles, Commercial Suicide, Offshore, Ohm Resistance / Columbia, Breakin’, Warm Communications, Subtle Audio, Subvert Central, Thermal, Forestry Service , LoCuts, Soothsayer, 13 Music, Pauze, Darkestral, Pinecone Moonshine, Bonafide, Cyberset , and now he’s concentrating on his own label, Lightless Recordings.
Personally, what I’ve always enjoyed most in Fanu’s production, is his unique style to chop the breaks, and his skills with the drums in general. Also, the atmospheres in both his downtempo and drum’n'bass production are very much worth mentioning. Check out the cool reverbs on the percussions of this Shogun remix, and you’ll know what I’m talking about! Amazing stuff, for real.
Fanu has been working on a remix of my track “Jupiter” during the last weeks, and the remix is about to get finished. I’ve heard previews, and I gotta tell it is a DOPE remix! Also, I’m more than happy to announce that the it will be released later on Lightless Digital with another track by myself, Twisted Dream. Expect some serious amen rudeboy business in this release!
