NORTHSIDE documents the formative years of jungle / drum & bass scene in Finland. Complemented by extensive sleeve notes exploring the country’s earliest DJs & producers, NORTHSIDE is an intriguing look into how far the music has travelled from the UK and at the same time represents Finland's own sound, energy and character that remains distinctive to this day.

Featuring unreleased tracks all the way from mid 90s both by original pioneers and literally all the big names of the Finnish scene (Fanu, Resound, Muffler, Dice aka Tes La Rok, Physics...) the compilation is available as a double vinyl album and an extensive digital version. A super limited c-cassette mixtape of 20 more rare dubs & bootlegs will also be available exclusively on Bandcamp.

Compiled by ODJ Dizzy. Tracks mastered by Fanu. Limited edition vinyl (300 copies) mastered by Beau @ Ten Eight Seven and pressed at Record Industry. Vinyl distributed by Unearthed.
