Youngstar set to reissue Pulse X

Whether people realise it or not, classic grime instrumentals (Rebound X's Rhythm & Gash, Ruff Sqwad's Functions On The Low etc) – albeit driven by an insatiable public thirst for a real, authentic grime sound – have been central to the genre enjoying so much shine in 2015. That said, there's always been one track that time has seemingly never forgotten; Youngstar's 2002 classic Pulse X

Remixed, edited, chopped, screwed, pushed, pulled and reimagined countless times, no producer has managed to better it in its original, looped form. Still vital to the instrumental grime blueprint today too, particularly the demonic, 8-bar material that has become such a fixture of grime club sets, it's a record of endless significance. 

Given its legacy, the decision for West London label hub White Peach to reissue Pulse X on wax next month – alongside three other Youngstar classics Revival, Formula and Formula 2 – should be music to your ears. Pencilled in for official release on November 16th and available to pre-order now, we're hedging a bet they'll sell out pretty quickly. Don't sleep. 

Youngstar's Pulse X reissue lands November 16th on White Peach (pre-order).
