I'm quite excited over here at Turn Away Skull, and it's down to the fact that I'll be road trippin' to Montreal (2 hours down the highway) to see Marcus Intalex on Saturday night (see details for the show below).

Ever since I first heard it, I've loved drum & bass/jungle music. Despite loving the music, the scene as a whole has taken a direction that I've been less enamoured with as of late (circa 2006, till the present). Still, there is good music out there, put forth by a stronghold of producers and DJs that have continued to blaze ahead of the pack. Marcus Intalex is one of them. Intalex and his Soul:R/Revolve:R labels release music that makes a bold futuristic statement while nodding to the past as well... a characteristic that jungle/drum & bass has traditionally been known for.

To get hyped up for the event on Saturday, I've banged out a little spotlight mix showcasing the music of Marcus Intalex. This is by no means a "best of" mix, but more so a chance for those unfamiliar with Intalex to sample the quality and the variety of his output. Check it out.

1. Da Intalex - What You Gonna Do? (Flex)
2. Marcus Intalex - Refreshed (Soul:R)
3. - Love Thing (???)
4. feat. Ras T Weed - Mistical Solution (Soul:R)

PS: It's the day of the show, and I just finished listening to this record this morning. It's a pretty good link between this post about Marcus Intalex, and the previous post about "winter listening" (see below)
