    ok i hve a question. howmany of you have listened to jungle/ drum'n bass? do you like it? can u understand it? ever heard of diselboy/ak1200/dj junk etc? fyi its the good music played at underground warehouse shindigs (raves) it has deeper darker beats and streaming baselines. the reason i ask this is my friend is spinning at a new hip hop club and wanted to know if jungle could hang with hip hop.
    what do you think?
  2. I sense a comment by Boogie hands coming soon...

    I like listening/dancing to drum and bass, usually more than hip hop, but it's irrelevant to compare the two to see which is better. A lot of hip hop heads dislike it for its repetitiveness, lack of lyrics (usually), and high speed, if that's what your friend wants to know.

    On the other hand, a couple of years back, I went to Zulu Anniversary, which is basically a reunion of the biggest heads and inflated egos from the early hip hop history, and jungle was spun (courtesy of TC Islam and Craze) with much approval from most. Whatever, tell your friend to spin Classical if he wants heads to notice. Beer,

  3. one thing i hate about the whole electronica 'scene' is how they steal group names, and its completely accepted for some reason
    diesel boy--shitty punk band, but they had it first
    project X--one of the first bands to really sing about violence and straight edge
    vitamin X--a swedish edge crew, or a socali hXc band

    i've also seen many a dj..... where the name was a metal or hardcore band. why the fuck is that ok?

    most of it sounds rather 'feminine' to me.. jsut like techno.
    i've heard a few techno tracks that were nice... but most of it is too bubble gum for me.
    only jungle song i've liked is original nuttah by shy fx


    i like drum n bass. BUT its not a new form of hiphop. it was created by accident, and has more reggae influence than hiphop influence. all in all, i like it.

    lionel, my partner in crime, is obsessed with that music. he always tells me jungle is basically hip hop music, but with a faster beat. thats all from me.

    I know a lot of hip hop heads that like dnb and jungle... I know I do anyway. A lot of the DJ's at the club we go to on hip hop night like to throw some dancehall/dnb tracks in the mix, and i don't see anyone stop dancing or getting irritated with it. I'm sure if all they'e heard is breakbeats all night, a little change up will be nice.
