DJ Inspecta and Ride One featuring Sweetie Irie – Soundboy [dj hybrid jungle remix]

• “Soundboy [dj hybrid jungle remix]” set to a picture of the housing EP cover.

7.6 “Great Drum n Bass from France/England”

From the “Soundboy EP” (Jungle Alliance Recordings JAD-004) released in March 2015.

Even the slightest hint of the vocoder usually has me running for the hills, but the overall effect here is pleasing to my ear so there you go, I can listen without prejudice.

Inspecta hails from Marseille, France, home to the sun, the sea, and a “superb musical community”. He’s been active as a producer since 1996 and as an artist in his own right since 2003.

Ride One has been involved in the south of France Drum n Bass since the 1990s, and emerged as one half of a double act alongside DJ Inspecta in 2003.

Sweetie Irie (born Dean Bent, January 1971), a reggae singer and DJ from London, is perhaps most famous for his appearance on the Scritti Politti single “Take Me in Your Arms and Love Me”, which reached no. 47 in the UK. In 2001, he had a UK Top 30 hit with “Who?”, a collaboration with Ed Case. In the 2010s he’s been into the UK garage scene through Middlerow Records.

Heard on the August 2015 edition of the Mark Cunliffe show on Dandelion Radio.
