They've got some sick unreleased bits still floating about, Catch a Whisper, Human 1 2 3 and Machine Made come to mind. But yeah apparently they wanted to go in different directions, which is weird cuz Boddika & Jon Convex both make 130 bass stuff now...
I heard the actual group, Instra:mental, will be featured on a new Nonplus album though, but i highly doubt the output will be at dnb tempo
They're not going to make anymore music under the Instramental name. Interviews hint they've both gone their separate ways production wise. No hint as to why. Shame though, their entire back catalogue is something else. Boddika solely running non plus I believe.
To be honest it is a shame but at the same time is quite nice to see all these drum and bass names blowing up over the house/tech/techno scene.
I quite often end up at parties where pretentious little dickheads tell me how out of touch I am for liking dnb and how it's a dead genre but then go on to tell each other about how the latest Trevino, Boddika, Joy O track smashed the latest Boiler Room episode, or the last time they were down Corsica Studios.
It keeps a little wry smile on my face. Also you always see tweets/interviews from Ben UFO, Scuba, Dusky and likes saying what an influence jungle and dnb has had on them and it always makes me proud to know that without the genre I know and love the contemporary dance music scene, certainly in the UK,
would be nowhere near as strong as it is today, obviously IMO.
"So just about everybody knows Boddika & Jon Convex [Kid Drama] stopped working together a while back ,right?
INSTRA:MENTAL were doing amazing things in the electronic,dnb & 170bpm music genres.
just like many artists many excellent tracks of theirs never got finished due to different reasons,
DBRIDGE Along with themselves played loads of unreleased stuff in the clubs and on their
groundbreaking AUTONOMIC PODCAST series.
There has been a huge demand for some of these tracks from thousands of people, ourselves included!
JON CONVEX recently commented on his FB Page that it is unlikely that any of these unreleased gems will
ever get released..say it aint so JON !
anyway us diehards still hold a glimmer of hope for a couple of bits to see the vinyl press & MP3 Stores.
a good person on Soundcloud gathered some of these unreleased tracks and put them all together for us all to enjoy. "
