Who better to launch Mindgames than the Future Retro general and Jungle machine Tim Reaper.
The two tracks on Tim's Mindgames 12" were the seed for the inception of the Mindgames label. Phonetics is unfiltered Amen Euphoria, with Tim's edits deftly embellishing the vocal earworm, while Changing Times wraps an ensemble of classic breaks around a pulsing b line.
Mindgames is a new Samurai Music affiliated label aiming to capture the essence of the sound that magnetised label head Presha into Jungle/Drum and Bass in the mid 90’s. Experiencing this musical development as it happened lit a flame of passion and drive that forged a focused musical path that continues unabated today.
94/95 were pivotal years for Jungle with new approaches to production and musical shades that shaped how the music progressed. Light and Dark musical hues were working side by side more frequently in these years as the music found its way, and Mindgames will reflect this.
With the resurgence of artists absorbing this sound and creating updated versions with added production finesse, Mindgames mission is to enlist current day producers who have successfully captured and reimagined the vibe and feel of these years into new forms that underline the foundation of our sound.
