    Did the spacewalking bear make it?
    Or were they sick of him leaving the bastard door open?

    Got new setup in the mancave with "Sufficient+" bass... These really knock.

    Hey, it's what all the kids are listening to....

    https://www.theguardian.com/music/2022/apr/22/its-just-good-energy-how-tiktok-and-covid-made-drumnbass-hot-again

    "“I grew up around soundsystem culture, as half of my family are Jamaican, and I was always drawn to that sound, the drums and the distorted bass,” Nia Archives told an interviewer this year, adding – and any original junglists may want to look away now, lest they feel impossibly ancient – “my nana loves jungle”."

    Now that everyone feels like they need a Zimmer frame, I gotta admit - Even someone as hip as me (roooight?), I ain't never done heard of these TikTok D&B'ers.  Man has 'nuff plates to spin.  Anyone else got these acts on their radar?  I mean, who could resist this sales pitch:

    "There are emo-seeming types with manga illustrations instead of artist photos, lots of Xs and Vs in their names and song titles that one assumes are tongue-in-cheek: xxtarlit has an online mix called Bad Goth Bitch Music To Cut/Worship Lucifer To."

    LOL. I suppose as a fan of Jungle I should be happy a new generation are breathing life/popularity into the genre, but that it's mainly focused on bullshit tiktok videos is a bit like the first time you hear a once-rare-as-hell funk 45 being played as part of Starbucks' corporately approved in-cafe playlist.

    Promise has, to me, always sounded like a lighter jazzier version of Vicious. Can't hate on a nice Sade vocal of course!

    yeah but vicious has so much character to it - classic. 

    i didn't love everything i heard but i remember liking a few of those Test records.  what else was good on Test?  i was sort falling away from the massive at that point.

    Yeah, by '98/'99 onwards the DnB scene+sound was leaving me cold and it was harder and harder to find anything I wanted to buy. There's a couple of singles on Valve from this era Dillinja & Lemon D did that I got, and that was it for a looooong time.

    I always liked that one too. Over the weekend my wife asked me why I hoard all of the drum and bass records when I rarely listen to them. I told her that because when I want to listen to them I have a library of them to listen to. She still doesn't get it but I'm keeping them all.

    It's funny, huh - you can only really listen to drum and bass/etc by yourself, or with the massive.  Other people... not so much.

    Yeah. I mainly play jungle during (solo) Mariokart sessions. Mrs Duder finds it far too hectic.

    People either love or hate jungle. I grew up listening to industrial breakbeats and then UK hardcore which evolved into jungle and drum and bass. My wife never listened to any of it back then and just does not get into it that much. Maybe I need to play it more and then eventually she'll finally start liking it more.

  • I am one of those people - I find a lot of jungle to be pretty boring but ragga jungle where it intersects with reggae samples and such makes for some tracks that I can listen to on hard repeat for like days on end.

    Ragga has always been my favorite and why I was so happy to pickup that collection I posted about way back in this thread. And I agree that a lot of jungle can be pretty boring. I think that is why I like the older Amen Break stuff. The producers spent a lot more time chopping up and programing the breaks.
