Last Christmas, Russell Haswell collared us and told us that EVOL‘s Wormhole Shubz was hands-down the best album of 2012.
With the full awareness that Haswell has specialist if generally spotless taste (see his 2010 FACT mix), we approached Wormhole Shubz with a mixture of excitement and trepidation. We’re very glad we accepted the recommendation.
The mix’s two foot-long tracklist (see below) is a fascinating artifact in itself, representing virtually all the key artists and labels from the era – many of which would go on to bigger and better things, many of which would fall by the wayside. Whether you’re a dedicated student of early jungle, acid techno and Belgian rave, or whether you’re a relative novice, yet to discover the joys of Sperminator’s ‘No Women Allowed’, FACT mix 330 is essential – we’ve never heard anything quite like it. Put simply: if you weren’t hardcore at the start, you will be by the end.
