The General EP

A 4 track jungle/drum 'n' bass ep (14m 40s) — released March 1st 2019 on Rua Sound

Rua Sound is pleased to announce we are back in action for of 2019, and a welcome return to the label of Touchy Subject, coming in fresh from his Aurora D Raynes project with Dan Dans K in 2018.

The go-to producers for cosmic, rootsy takes on up-tempo 160-170 bass music, Touchy Subject's second four-track 12" on Rua ups the ambition and knocks it so far out of the park its broken windows in the next parish across.

The General EP veers wildly between belligerent, funky takes on dusty 90's boom-bapàla DJ Shadow on "Shudder" and 'Turnt Up', cavernous soundsystem workouts on "Seek and Find", and the febrile halftime (just) jungle (barely) title-track "General" bringing the emotive goosebump vibes.

This is soundsystem music par excellence; cerebral, heady, and rousing.

We apologise profusely to those of you whose resolutions for 2019 involved losing weight, but this is our fattest releases yet.

Support from:

Fracture, Om Unit, Hyroglifics, TMSV, Deft, Jon1st, Cryptikz, Itoa, Yorobi, Matt the Alien, Jonny Dub, Thing. and lots lots more
