The Jungle Thread
As far as I can tell, the distinction between jungle and drum’n’bass was based on whether you wanted to be taken seriously by a white middle class audience. I remember a kid at my school telling me that jungle was dead, then the next month Timeless came out.
Anyway, this is a tune (with a nice nod to Stetsasonic/Lonnie Liston Smith)

I think he meant jungle died a little when Timeless came out…
This was back when it was seen as proper white Escort music – basically a fad offshoot of rave. Everyone thought it had burned itself out. Then Metalheadz came along, Mercury Music Prize, etc. etc.Posted 1 year ago
