Originally released in 2007. A key figure in the development of the drum n' bass scene in Ireland, Naphta is regarded as something of a jungle pioneer in his own country. A founding member and resident DJ with Bassbin for 10 years, his productions provided key moments in the Bassbin Recordings back-catalog, while his unique style on the decks proved hugely influential to a new generation of junglists both at home and abroad. 2007 opened with the success of his Soundclash double-header on Lightless Recordings, demonstrating the truth of what he had claimed for years: that there was a whole new generation of drum n' bass fans out there starved of the vibes, rhythms and attitude that had first made him fall in love with the music. Paving the way for his debut album proper, Grande Illusions: Demonstrations In The Art Of Underground Drum 'n Bass compiled previously-unreleased highlights from his back catalog to a hugely enthusiastic reception (10,000+ album downloads). On Long Time Burning, Naphta steps up to deliver his vision of an updated jungle sound. Purposely rooted in the source music that inspired the original sample-heavy junglist blueprint back in 1993/1994, this album offers a selection of ruff cuts that draw on reggae, dancehall, funk, soul and hip-hop and combines them into an explosive whole -- with the precision that only a true veteran and long-time believer could achieve. The end result is as colorfully melodic, rhythmically urgent and uniquely inspired a vision of jungle music as you're likely to hear for some time. A shambolic, sampledelic, and feverishly brilliant collage.
