Leviticus | Burial 12"

Philly Blunt

Regular price £19.99

Tax included.

Possibly the ultimate jungle record? This one's got it all – tight drum breaks, dubwise sub bass, tough ragga vocals, sweet soulful female vocals, ominous atmospherics and a snaking jazz funk bassline. It’s one hell of a tune.

Leviticus, a.k.a. Nigel Thompson, is probably better known under his DJ name Jumpin Jack Frost. Already an established DJ when jungle began to emerge in the early 90’s he became one of scene’s best known and longest standing DJ’s holding down a 7 year residency on Kiss FM between 1994 and 2001 and in collaboration with Bryan Gee he launched the label V Recordings in 1993 which became home to a dream team roll call of artists including Roni Size, DJ Krust, DJ Die and Lemon D.

It was on their Philly Blunt sublabel that ‘Burial’ first appeared in 1994 (which is where it reappears again here 30 years later..) before it went on to get picked up by Pete Tong’s FFRR label who released it a year later when it went on become a bona fide crossover hit establishing it as one of the all time great jungle anthems.

As the production credits show, it was a proper collaborative effort with plenty of other jungle royalty getting involved along the way - vocals supplied by Frost’s sister Yolanda, recorded at Dillinja’s studio with the great man himself on engineer duties alongside Optical and mixed by DJ SS. A suitably legendary production team for the creation of a timeless classic.

Delivered on limited edition gold vinyl that's served up in a very fetching gold embossed sleeve.
