If there's one scene and sound that became an influence in most of today's electronic music, then it's pretty much Jungle music. It's a sound that exist as a combination of different cultures, and it's the most important melting pot of music genres. Without Jungle, there would be no DnB, Progressive House/Trance, Breaks, UKG, 2-step, Dubstep, Afrobeat, Trip Hop, J-Pop and even today's Pop music. It is very influential.
Being a Junglist i've always preferred the traditional sliced and chopped amen breaks with reggae vocals and ambient sounds over today's "boom KICK!" beats and disco synths. Therefore, Jungle has a place in my heart.
This mix is a tribute to the Jungle sound. In the first half you got your usual Ragga Jungle tunes, and the second half of this mix is filled with Ambient Jungle tunes that are the brainchild of LTJ Bukem and the like. So enjoy this mix, and if you're new to Jungle and oldschool DnB, then i hope this mix is an education for ya!
