VA - Jungle Mania (1994)

Jungle is a genre of electronic music derived from breakbeat hardcore that developed in England in the early 1990s as part of UK rave scenes. The style is characterized by fast tempos (150 to 200 bpm), breakbeats, dub reggae basslines, heavily syncopated percussive loops, samples, and synthesized effects. Long pitch-shifted snare rolls are common in old-school jungle. Jungle was a predecessor to drum and bass, a well-known genre of electronic music.

"Jungle Mania" kicks off with the epochal ragga jungle scorcher "Oroginal Nuttah," if you don't already have that on hand. None of the other tracks are as unhinged or pulverizing, but in all their soul and strut, they add up to a pretty essential field report from the front lines of jungle's golden era. If you have more than a casual interest in jungle, get and keep this within arm's reach– it's an inexhaustibly crucial text. Jungle is still MASSIVE!

Thanks ! This is a genre which is not so easy to come by these days I find - brings back some lovely memories from London in the 90's.
