Download E-Sassin’s “Dreams & Nightmares” Mix

esassin

This is one of those golden oldies, dropping all the way back in 1996; it was released on cassette, and a number of the artists in this tracklist aren’t even together anymore. Regardless, this is a darkside trek through a classic time in jungle/drum & bass from one of the American producers who people gave a damn about early on. E-Sassin was making waves back in the LA scene alongside the likes of UFO!, Hive, and those leftcoast drum & bass producers. As a producer, he’s not been heard of since 2004 (at least under this moniker), but he randomly threw this trip back into the jungle days of yore for a limited time via his SoundCloud. Many trainspotters hadn’t even ID’d a lot of these tracks, so it’s great to have the full mix out, even if it’s for a limited time. So many memories.
