Benncart – Heartcore Vol. 2

Benncart

“Heartcore Vol. 2”

London-based Benncart returns with another instalment of his Heartcore series, which explores the legacy of British dance music through a footwork-inspired lens with humorously added romantic undertones. Focusing on the first half of the glorious 90’s when jungle reigned supreme, the second volume incorporates numerous tropes signature to the style at the time. Pout-inducing bass, heavily chopped-up breakbeats, dub sirens, and ragga vocal samples are married with futuristic sound design and syncopated rhythms, while simultaneously giving a small nod to golden era hip-hop. The two presented tracks are in significant contrast with each other – “Heartcore Theme” brings forth aggressive, distorted tones, while “That Heartcore Shit” mellows things out with ethereal pads and a more melodic approach reminiscent of the so-called intelligent strain of jungle prominent in the mid-90’s. Both pieces deliver an idiosyncratic take on both sides of the hardcore spectrum that should satiate all junglists and junglettes hungry for a fresh take on the classic UK sound.
