10 tracks that inspired jungle pioneer Peshay

Drum and Bass | Tuesday 17th September 2019 | Arren

Peshay’s list of tunes that inspired him to make music.

He’s a living legend, a 90s jungle pioneer and a fucking quality producer. Going by the name Peshay, he’s been a solid force in drum & bass. Over the years he's built a bustling back catalogue of bangers, featuring releases on Metalheadz, Mo Wax & Good Looking Records. He’s also contributed to huge projects including LTJ Bukem’s Logical Progression, and Metalheadz’ Platinum Breaks.

He’s just dropped his latest album with Sense, Underground Volume 1 on his own imprint, Peshay Music. A collection of 10 murky drum & bass cuts. Peshay & Sense get down and gritty on the production making each track a certified dancefloor killer. Get yourself a copy here.

Celebrating the release Peshay has compiled a huge playlist of tunes that have inspired him to make music. A sick selection of bangers from a jungle pioneer including 808 State, Rhythm Is Rhythm and Lil Louis... Get involved!!

Lalo Schifrin - On the way to San Mateo

Lalo Schrifrin to me is one of the very best music composers ever!!! Everytime I hear one of his compositions it makes me want to turn my studio on and get cracking!!! Game changing music that Bullitt soundtrack!!!

808 State - Pacific State

I remember when I first heard this,just the vibe of this track used to make my hair stand on end and inspired me greatly.

River Ocean feat India - Love & Happiness (Yemaya Y Ochun)

Masters At Work are one of my favourite music producers, love their vibe, so soulful but banging at the same time!!! This was the vocal I used to do the vocal tune on good looking records and obviously the original inspired me greatly!!!

Model 500 - The Passage

Used to love Network Records,so many great releases from so many artists!!! The strings and the ambience in this record though, absolute killer!!!

Rhythm Is Rhythm - Nude Photo

The synths in this track are so piercing!! The low bass synth is so funky,but the high one just gets into your head!!!! So catchy and way ahead of its time!!!!

Hashim - Al Naafiysh (The Soul)

One of my favourite electro tracks from back in the day. I paid homage to this track on my forthcoming album next year called "Decades" by doing an electro track, because this track was such a big part of my youth!!!!

Fred Wesley & The J.B.'s - Blow Your Head

Funky Funky Funky!!!! Such a massive groove this track has and always inspires me when I want to do something funky!!! Never gets old!!!

Isaac Hayes - Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile

Isaac Hayes,another absolutely brilliant producer ,also one of my all time faves!!! This track just has it all,but funk is top of the list!!! Sounds of the 70s!!!

Koop - Summer Sun (feat. Yukimi Nagano)

This track is just vibes!!! The groove and the feeling it gives, just mesmerising!!! And the vocals too, love it!!!

Lil Louis - I'm Hot For You

One of my all time fave old skool house tracks,that bassline so catchy and really deep. I’m a big fan of house music and this is one of my all timers!!!
