TUFF LOVE DUBS Dubplate #4 is HERE!!!

4th time around we bring you: SUCCESSION & POINTS IN TIME in the extremely limited quantity of TEN!

Dubplate #4 / TUFF038 turns the style tide and slips the groove into the darker side of the Jungle spectrum. Teasing elements of early Tech-Step reminiscent of the early Ed Rush and No U-Turn or Emotif releases ‘Succession’ on the X side of the plate says it directly; “Of Course You Know Me…”. Storming but reverb’d beats intertwine with an alternating 808 / Hoover B-Line while tense strings and pads presenting a side of Tuff we’ve never head before. Flipping to the Y side the low slung nature of things continues as a message of introspection and possibility asks you to ‘Think about it”. Points In Time present a complex tapestry of drum work and tense vibes set speed above a bed of luscious pads for the closing song of this very VERY limited edition release.

Original releases on TUFF from 2020 forward are available ONLY on 10″ Vinyl Dubplate normally in quantities of 10 to a max of 20 copies for certain releases. If you don’t get the dub when it’s cut, that’s that.. Tuff Love.

As many have noticed through the re-launch, there are NO ARTIST NAMES on these releases. This is by design. We’re doing our part to bring back some of the mystery that’s been lost in music of late. If you want to know who made it, start asking around, pay attention to what we might say in the Twitch live shows, hunt for clues in blogs or maybe on a sticker somewhere… In the end all will be known. And while you hunt, the beats on these plates will keep you bubblin!

Every song released on TUFF LOVE DUBS from here on out is a Jungle monster made to rock the dance-floor AND bring the defining sounds of Jungle DnB to your soul. This is going back to the roots with a genuine nod to the golden era. We look forward to letting the music and the format it’s on bring you the joy its meant to - play on crew!

A quick shout to the final ‘vinyl’ format of the Dub’s we’ve chosen to bring to you. We’ve decided on the more robust and long lasting ‘vinyl dubplate’ instead of the traditional lacquer dubplate partly as a result of the devastating loss of Apollo / Transco in March (the only actual ‘acetate’ manufacturer in the world with real capacity is now gone: https://www.residentadvisor.net/news/71906 ) that’s created a global shortage of lacquer blanks - and - from a strong chorus of fans and music lovers who’ve made it clear to us they would prefer a plate they can play hundreds (if not thousands) of times instead of 20 or 30 times at best.
