Tonight, we have intelligent drum‘n’bass from the 90s. Sometimes I ask not only small labels, but also musicians who are interesting to me to record a showcase with the music they create. Today it may seem to us that we are listening to a CD that someone forgot in a London pub in the long-gone 1996, but actually, this music was made in recent years and in our area. Marco Lazovic is a person who has moved away from house and electro in favour of British ambient jungle. And this is his real essential mix, which consists entirely of his music. This is his reflection, his essence. And if it wasn’t for the BBC, I could use that word legally.
Marco says: “I’m interested in the sound that is called artcore, intelligent drum‘n’bass and so on. In fact, I started listening to jungle and drum‘n’bass music relatively recently. Of course, I was familiar with these genres. Around 1998-2000, there were some collections of jungle music available on cassettes. But I was never interested. But a few years ago, I started listening to jungle. I even remember writing my very first track in this genre in 2014. A little later, a friend of mine sent me the track Catalyst (720 Re-Edit) by Pariah and that’s when I fell in love with this music. I’m inspired by those who are already on everyone’s lips—such as Photek with his various alter egos. I love the Future Engineers project. Or, for example, PFM, Artemis. If we talk about labels, there are no secrets here either: Good Looking, Moving Shadow and early Metalheadz.”
