loads of them Junglist tunes - brings back happy memories of getting mashed on herb and dancing all night.
One that samples Cutty Ranks "Limb by limb we a go cut them down send fe the hack saw..."
Also Dred Bass sampling Dr Alimantado when the time stretch became really big... "what the time you have the dread...." massive tune.
There is also a wicked tune that samples Tony Rebel's "The Herb".
Too many to think off.
2 of my favourite junglist tunes from back in the day was an Omni Trio 10" called "Crack Is Evil" and another called "The Flute Tune" done by a couple of blokes in Gateshead near where I live released on the Metalheadz label.
Me mate has all of them big tunes on white label from back in the early hardcore days right upto present. His junglist / drum and bass record collection is iabsolutely huge and must be worth a fortune now.
Roughest Gunark - Top Cat, wicked tune have it somewhere must dig it out! I'll never forget Brendan Grace in father Ted with his ghetto blaster asking ted if it was ok if he played some music, and when he pressed play cutty ranks starts booming out inna junglist style! Wicked tune.
Know it was a big pop hit and all but the best of any of these tunes to me isOriginal Nuttah - Shy FX & UK Apache always made me go nuts....."babwoi inna Englan...."
Hey Ian seek out Jungle Hits Volumes 1-3 (Street Tuff) for the ultimate collection of Ragga Jungle bizness. if yu still waan more then Breakdown Records series 'Drum & Bass Selections' got the best of the rest
Yes Dots, I have Vol. 2 of the Jungle Hits set and realised after I last posted that the Frankie Paul tune I mentioned is in fact on that comp aswell and is properly called My Sound. The copy I was playing was on white label and was handwritten My Soul The Jungle.....so it goes....
It was jungle dat got me into playing reggae! When the ragga jungle faded out I started buying more 7's. I got all the big ragga tunes! Imo the best one has got to be PIZNA FEAT DEMOLITION MAN! "FIIIIYYAAAAAAHHH NOW WI GUH BUNN DI PLACE DOWN! BIG BIG BIG TUNE! I'm selling all my jungle at the mo but never will I depart with that tune!
Any of you lot ever been to A.W.O.L or Jungle Splash, Telepathy,Helter Skelter, Ect?
I used to go to AWOL and places like that regular... At the time I had green dreads and stood out like a sore thumb Ah- the days of hanging round Black Market bugging Nicky for test presses...
Congo Natty did some wicked stuff, too many to mention. One of my favorites is Aphrodite's "Booyaa" remix; Sophia George AND a big booyaa bassline inna cheesy style
Ian- most of my ragga jungle is on vinyl in the UK, but drop us a line...
