The first dose of Jungle Cakes X Trojan could well be something of a cult classic with remixes from a whole host of the scenes biggest and best underground producers. What’s next to come is another massive wave of tracks that delve even deeper into the vaults of the Trojan back catalogue.
Phibes definitely hit the jackpot in terms of remix choice as ‘54-46 Was My Number’ by Toots & The Maytals is no doubt one of the most well known singles from the label providing an ideal platform for commercial crossover whilst remaining tough as nails. It’s electric bassline almost sounds as if 10,000 volts are running through it, hammering it’s pulsating madness through your speakerbox, off the walls and into oblivion. It’s another fine example of the pair's production wizardry, slotting in choice samples from the original whilst making it sound like it was born to be an upfront jungle track. Foundation business!
If ‘Told You Once’ wasn’t enough to convince you of Phibes’ destructive capabilities, this one certainly will be.
