In 2004, Hochi and Infiltrata (12th Planet) came together with MC Dre for the new classic West Coast Ridaz single on Photek’s TEKDBZ and sparked a whole new revolution in drum-n-bass dedicated to bridging the gap between jungle and American hip-hop.  Over the next few years, TEKDBZ turned out the monster single Fahrenheit 215 / Hit’em Hard and two monster mixtapes Heat Vols 1 & 2.  Then amidst all of the hype, the promised full album never seemed to materialize.  Today, Infiltrata, now most commonly known as 12th Planet, set the net ablaze with talk of a reunion.  I am not sure what will come of it, but I can only hope that it’s going to be some hip-hop bassline steez!  “I’m a hardcore junglist and a hip-hop veteran.  Mixing lyrics with these basslines is my medicine!”

For those of you who don’t know much about TEKDBZ, I am uploading their two seminal mixtapes so you can get a taste of why these cats were called the saviors of drum-n-bass.
