Hungarian drum & bass trio Mindscape have been an integral part of the junglist scene for the best part of a decade. Here they drop their third full-length, the follow-up to last year's well-received Bounce LP. In some ways, Martian Chronicles is a good old-fashioned kind of drum & bass album. Concerned with all things intergalactic, its bold riffs, fluid rhythms and cybernetic synths evoke memories of classic jungle full-lengths. This impression is solidified by the inclusion of several old-fashioned bass music staples, including a breakbeat hardcore/rave cut (the excellent "Through & Beyond"), some spacey ambience ("Martian Chronicles (Intro)"), a hip-hop/D&B mash-up, and the flexible jungle-funk of "Spaceface".
