(qd-4256) aLJar3d - Delayed Summertide
What happens when you mix together the liquid grooves of urban jungle and the immediate intensity of youth? Oddly enough, in this case, the end product is combination of mature futurejazz, and quirky drum ‘n’ bass experimentation care of aLJar3d. Despite the occasional discordance, there is energy and studiousness here that displays the artist’s dedication to his craft.
“Delayed Summertide” is six tracks of sophisticated, funky, smooth but always energetic drum ‘n’ bass from a newbie that already knows where he’s going.

Araknidus + aLJar3d - Disturbanz (qd-4255) album cover
Artists: Araknidus & aLJar3d | Release: Disturbanz (qd-4255)
Two drum&bass masters team up to dish out an aggressive laser volley of tracks that proclaim the supremacy of two-step and jungle — even in 2009. Araknidus and aLJar3d both litter their music with speech samples and distorted synthlines, with tough beats and a love of sci-fi. Welcome to dystopia, enemy aliens, evil warlords, and mutant clones.
Araknidus is the dubstep artist alias for Mike Madriaga (aka Evo Evolver) whose releases are on QED Records. Meanwhile, aLJar3d is a Bacolod City-based musician who has been travelling the Philippines bringing his DNB music everywhere.
