    Just wondering, why did Jungle burn out? seems to really finish up in around 95-96.
    Ive been having a great time discovering all this old school Jungle. I never disliked it, just never really got into it. probably didnt hear it enough.

    But maybe it didnt burn out at all, and there's an active scene.

    Can any1 point me at the main players. I am sure ill discover this allong the way.

    also, whats the difference between Jungle and Ragga Jungle? Is Ragga Jungle with the vocals?

    Jungle is alive and well and its called dnb. Half of the old guard have their own labels and are still in the game.

    Ragga jungle is pissed off rastas with amen breaks. Its hard core fans call it a totally different musical genre, me I call it dnb.

    yeah i tend to agree with this, and various other artist besidess. there is still a facet of dnb that is more tending to keep some of the sounds of that early jungle era though. what you call is depends on your view

    You can take the person out of the jungle but not the jungle out of the person.

    Agree with JD.

    Check out www.raggabot.com for some hi quality nuskool LA jungle tracks and mixes for dl.

    I don't think Jungle did 'burn out' in the 90's, people just moved it on and kept on evolving the sounds in numerous directions. Some people perceive 'classic Jungle' as dated or old skool, but that's just cos it had such an impact at that time and defined an era...(and was heavily hyped by the media).

    Classics still get played out, and the influences are everywhere.

    Jungle's for life...

    Thought it come from Jungle techno and was around since 1991...trax like Hackney Hardcore "Dancehall Dangerous".....Guy Called Gerald "21 Gun Baaaad Bwwwooooy"
    They're what got me hooked on teh sound, but it was 'hip-house' that evolved into hardcore/jungle I reckon...stuff like Silver Bullit "21 Seconds to Comply" Hijack..."hijack" were the ones for me..will have to do a "roots" of DnB mix..u know
