"Manchester’s veteran Junglist Chimpo steps up on Astrophonica to tune in to his pirate radio influences and broadcast an EP full of explosive Jungle energy and Hardcore charm. Phone line crew, this one's for you . . .

“On The Dial is my take on the Jungle music I grew up listening to on Manchester pirate radio stations in the nineties. The two main pirates that played Jungle are referenced directly in two of the tracks: Buzz FM and Luv NRG. The tracks reference styles I’ve picked up from some of my favourite producers growing up: Danny Breaks, Krust, Die, Sappo, L Double, etc. Rig Doctor is more Old Skool using a sample referencing the guy who would fix up the technicals in running a pirate and styled by early Hardcore Jungle Techno. The whole EP is essentially a love letter to one of the first genres I fell in love with on the format I really learned about it on.” - Chimpo.

Rig Doctor kicks off the weekend with a rush of high speed vocals and a homage to the ones behind the scenes making the station tick… The Rig Doctor. Up after ads is the positive lunch time roller LUV NRG and a trademark Chimpo bubble to set speed. Stay up past bedtime and you’ll hear the mysterious Buzz Army with its murky bass riff and graveyard shift aesthetic. Finishing things off Sunday style, Chimpo drops some science on the stoned groove of Broad."
