Higher Ground Recordings is a brand-new, Berlin-based label dedicated to releasing modern jungle/drum’n’bass music in a high-quality, heavyweight vinyl format.

Coming in strong for the new year, their debut release opens with an upbeat, amen-heavy anthem, leaving you feeling uplifted right from the get-go. The flipside boasts the perfect supplement – a deep jungle roller on a slightly dubwise tip!

A Side:
Aries & Ras Lion – “Reality”
(feat. Navigator & Mish Maybe)

Originally recorded in the Lion’s Den during one of Aries’ visits to Berlin, “Reality” tells the story of jungle music as a conscious, worldwide movement, continuously growing from its humble UK roots to its present global following.

Teaming up with the long-time musical activist Ras Lion on production – and featuring the powerful lyrics of legendary vocalist Navigator and the talented Mish Maybe – “Reality” successfully invokes the spirit of jungle music, bringing forth a positive message much needed in this age of confusion. Reality is sure to be one of THE jungle anthems of 2017!

B Side:
Brian Brainstorm – “Kings Road Dub”

Originating from the deeper (and slightly darker) side of modern jungle music, “Kings Road Dub” is the ideal counterpart to Reality. With a somewhat more straightforward, almost “dubwise” approach, Cologne-based producer Brian Brainstorm skillfully rides the thin line between jungle and drum’n’bass – with classic clash-drawn samples, a grooving skank and his signature rolling bassline that is sure to set any dance on fire!
