Hi, I'm New to Jungle. Suggestions Wanted !


TRIBE Member
hey...i haven't had a chance to hear a lot of jungle...but i'm always open to new genres and unique sounds. can someone recommend some really great jungle tracks. there is only one jungle track that i listen to often. it's called "high contrast - make it tonight." i love that track. i would like to hear more like it. thanks.


TRIBE Member
go to audiogalaxy and download high Contrast's 'True Colours' mix. Lotsa good tunes!

That and anything by Aphrodite;)


TRIBE Member
If you liked that High Contrast joint, then grab some stuff from Hospital Records.
Try other stuff by High Contrast, as well as London Elektricity, Landslide, and Danny Byrd.

Also, download some Marcus Intalex & ST Files (MIST), Calibre, Mist.i.cal (MIST + Calibre), Peshay, Un-cut, Influx Datum....

check out producers xrs land, patife, and marky and see if that wets your whistle

all samba style DnB....so tinha, lk, sambassim, samba raro, secrets of the floating island, unlimited gold.

Also other high contrast tunes like return of forever, passion, suddenly, global love

if you like that epic sound then check out some john b tunes like get it on, forever, music takes you rmx, and everyone was going off to 'up all night' this time last year which i highly recommend you check out because it is similar to make it tonight in many respects.

also check the people mentioned above because a lot of it is wicked, especially the hospital records stuff

once you are more specific we can narrow down our recommendations
check dj doublecross website [link]www.djdoublecross.com[/link] i think and he has some mixes up that are quite similar

No one has a straight answer for that, but generally:

jungle - sample-based, raw sounding hardcore breakbeat sound pre-1996, also includes ragga

drum n' bass - more synthesizer based, tech sounding, and the sound has been more prominent from about 1996/97 to the present

Adam F - Music for your mind
Johnny L - Oh Boy
Ed Rush & Optical - Alien Girl

As far as sets on AG that you might dig...

Calibre @ WMC 2001

And like SSS suggested, do check out the live section on breakbeat.co.uk, some of the best sets from most of the full spectrum of DnB are there for your enjoyment and edification.

tonight i am playing upstairs @ the Rivoli - which is across from Steve's Music east of Queen & Spadina

it's a nice place, lots of pool tables, nice vibe - no cover

anyway after 11:00 me and my friend will be playing jungle/D&B all night.

if you are looking for an introduction to jungle, this is a good start.

there is no attitude, the vibe is mature, and the music will be proper

my boy Ryan will be dropping new jazzy soulful D&B that you will deinitely like, but i will be bringing a crate of really classic jungle from back in the day - lots of stuff from 93/94, and all styles of jungle - ragga/r&b jungle remixes, rollers, atmospheric

i avoid playing top-40 anthems, and try to play the more obscure stuff that most people don't hear anymore

so yeah come check it out

if you are new to the intoxicating and abusive sound of drum and bass you should really be listenig to as many mixes as you can...that is really how you aquire a taste for an individula sub-genre of jungle/dn'b.

And you really don't want to stick to the high contrast sound that has been sweeping the scene for the last year or so because you will really be in need of some tearin',nasty,skanky,facefuckin' hard as fuck in your face beats(tech itch,ed rush,digital,ray keith etc.)so go with the follwing mixes:

ray keith;classified mix on CD...decent mix of tunes released on that album...soft/dark/hard/ray keith...cant lose

any dieselboy mix Cd-best fuckin DJ in the world(arguments are coming:D ...great selection of tunes,stylish,yet near perfect mixing,not linear like a lot of mix CDs...tells a story with every mix!

reccomendation:system upgrade and sixth session

through the eyes:DIE-good mix from full cycle dude DJ DIE, what seperates this from other mixes is the track selection, every track is stellar and on cue
