People who are into Drum and Bass get very enthused about their music I have discovered from reading many reviews here. Many many phrases shuch as 'the gold standard ' or 'the ultimate'. And it makes you think.....with all of these tracks that are suposedly within the best of the best catagory in the genre, and there do seem to be a fair few contenders, how is it possible to really pick out a track that is undeniably, without question,...something very special and truely worthy of that kind of parase ?Drum and Bass isn't my favourite genre of music. I don't collect it. I don't really know my tech step from my neuro funk, but I feel confident enough, even giving my lack of konweledge, that I can propose that this record 'Shadow Boxing' can legitimately be included in any short list when considering the most influential/important or just plaing devistating on the dance floor Drum and Bass.It's not a track that smashes you over the head with a huge nasty bass line or drills into your brain via relentless shattering breaks. What it does do is transfix you into an atmosphere of the deepest foreboding sinister energy and for some unknown reason being frightened never felt so good !!
  • Qusserel
"Shadow Boxing" is like the evil twin of Doc Scott's "The Unofficial Ghost", these songs both of 1996, have quite similar arrangements, and made by the same man.
  • Frey
A Top 10 of my few private Jungle DnB gems.
  • Kakashkaliandiia
Mental dark tripping music absolutely wicked what a buzz ;-)
  • Kieel
So Doc Scott gives us the amazing Here Comes The drums and then a few years later this. Such a darkly voyage is this one son! I remember DJing at an out door illegal rave some years back and I mixed this epic tune into another equally sonic journey which was DJ Trace- Mutant Revisited. The combined mix certainly tranced out the crowd (whether they knew what the hell was going on or not?! P.s. never forget Prototyped as that is a bad bwoy tune!
  • Karon
Probably but cannot be to sure. Two great landmark tunes on one heavy 12" record!
  • Talvinl
Isn't Prototyped like a tribute to Grooverider ? The name... and the "Inta Naty" sample ! :)
  • Kearanny
Dark stuff here. A Heavywight Jungle all time classic tune.
  • Gagas
Dark + deadly... I was never a huge fan of the darkcore, darkness element of jungle around the mid nineties. Shadow Boxing however is a class tune and still kicks today. Straightforward but simple... heavy and grooving. Changed the game slightly as jungle was veering off in different directions with the various styles around.Some people won't get Shadow Boxing (I remember my parents shouting to turn the amp volume down!) but it's a nice piece to own. Cool trippy start, tough two step beats followed by dark melodies and bass which I imagine *many* people went nuts to back in the day.Reasonably priced on Discogs so break the mould and dive in...
  • Gindian
you are so right about " *many* people went nuts to back in the day."... it sounds funny today, but back then did was a eveil motha fucka in a club ;-)
  • Whatever
always remember what a friend of mine said on his first listen - 'this is the sort of tune you listen to if you were doing a drive by'... not sure what was on his agenda that evening but it sums up this tune nicely... respect to doc scott
  • Marelyne
Dark as you can get. So simple so deadly and still sounds fresh. Love the way the bass just comes in gradually, so creepy. Doc Scott is a genius.
  • Sermak Light
AA side is cool too.
  • Welen
An outstanding track that easily could be described as a game changer in dnb. This one made the 2-step beat popular over the typical amen beats and still is the base for almost every jump up track nowadays.Useless to say that this is a creeper as soon as the darkness slowly comes growling over you. One of the commenters said "eight years old and peeps still get their groove on when they hear this!!! " - it has been now 18 yrs and this one still goes off!!!! Simply a Masterpiece!
  • Truthcliff
This is a classic in every sense of the word, sharp beats echo through the room and you know something is not right, before you know it the dreaded soundscape appears and you try to turn and run but it's too late! The bass has grabbed you and the tune is just tearing you apart! No seriously this is a dark dark tune and an absolute destroyer. 10/10
  • Elildelm
This stuff also matched well with techno mixes. THE best.
  • Hi_Jacker
An amazing track that will always be a timeless drum n bass classic- heard it dropped in AWOL last year in London and it delivered the crowd reaction it always did back in the day- one for every jungle/ dnb DJ's box for sure- simple but so so good!
  • Fenrikree
this is what satan enters the ring with as a theme song. respeckssss to doc scott, a.k.a. nasty habits.
  • Reighbyra
So simple, yet so effective. Doc Scott created another master piece with this one.
I was at Tribal Gathering (I think), 1996, standing in front of a wall of speakers to one side of the stage, enjoying myself, like you do, when this sound started growing inside my brain. My head was then ripped clean off my shoulders! Words are still hard to find! It was the first time I ever heard Shadow Boxing and its the only thing I still remember from that night. Doc Scott was on the decks.
  • Cheber
In my estimation this is possibly the best drum & bass tune ever written. Supposedly produced in only one night. Shadow Boxing is a slowly building piece of brooding music that seems to transpose itself from within the confines of the drum and bass world. Its dark soundscape is transfixed on sending a message of a looming future, distraught with decay, slowly moving toward an inescapable, imminent destruction. Shadow Boxing, similar to many early no u turn releases, is concerned with ambience and the creation of tension bordering on the lines of total chaos. It's heavy and dark, yet subdued in a manner which implies control and relevance, something far too often lacking in post-millennium drum & bass. Shadow Boxing is a track that once heard, never escapes your mind, borrowing itself deep within, reminding you that the future is uncertain and the past is distant and fading.
  • Modifyn
very well written review --- nailin' it!
  • Rgia
Wow, it was a massive bassline for me untill i came across this review, now its an epic production that tells a story. Im now off to read the rest of this fella/lady's reviews. Wheres the owners name?
  • Coiriel
Small wonder that a great dj such as Laurent Garnier had chosen this one for his favourite tune of the 1996. Everytime when played, THE Bassline comes in and doesn't leave anything untouched in radius of approx. 1000000 light years! Supported with a rough, rugged and raw sounding 2-step beat - this one has it all! Those were the days when 31 had started to reign supreme with the each next 12" better than the one before... at least until 31R017 release.
  • Arthunter
In the DnB Chronicles this tune is a milestone, Mr McIlroy really dropped jaws with this floor filla! A must hav tune for all DnB Ed's, eight years old and peeps still get their groove on when they hear this!!! Respect
  • TheJonnyTest
Amazing what can be done with like 5 sounds. The whole thing is just one loop over and over but it's so hypnotic...never gets boring for a second. Doc Scott on the forefront of things again.
  • Windbearer
This is the early definition of a bassline monster. A slow twisted twostep beat, a kung-fu sample and the darkest, deepest and mightiest bassline i´ve ever heard. The blood freezes in your veins for the next minutes. I´ve played this tune in front of a few ass shakin´ house suckas and pop music fans and their breath was taken away... For many people i know this is the only drum`n`bass track they really like... You´re having problems with D`n`B ??? Check dis tune !
