one of the most fascinating movements of electronic music certainly is the jungle movement from the early and mid90s – in my case seen from a distance for several reasons.
- i was in my early or mid 10s back then and not ready for club things.
- i wasn’t living in the UK, not even in a town. no movements at all.
- i have no reggae roots.
- my (conscious) primary socialization musicwise is monobeatish.
for the stated reasons jungle will remain exotic and mysterious to all eternity for me. well, lesson in maturity: it’s not always necessary to completely get to the bottom of things. it kills the spirit often enough. not possible here. i’m free to enjoy. thats why i love it so much these days… favourite duo: bbrrooocckkkiiieeeee & det:
p.s. it’s not the first and only time i wished to be born a little bit earlier. i would have been able to experience the first wave of techno and probably would be a little more excited about things like vaporwave.
