    what makes you think your a "junglist" .....

    :slick:

    I dont believe i am a junglist because i seriously dont understand the wording ... wow i may of listened to electronic music back from 1982 when i discovered early electro and over the yrs listen to different sound paths of electronic music but just because i listen to jungle / drum and bass ,and go out once in a while doesnt mean in my eyes i have the right to call myself a junglist . :mrpanic: .

    everyone in the scene be it biznes or pleasure why adapts the term junglist to suit there needs ... how can someone who just listens to dnb for 1 hr aday who never brought a single , an lp etc compare themselves to a producer who been there from the beginning and still call them themselves a junglist ,.. to me doesnt make sence ..

    has it become just a word that anyone can "claim to be" when seriously there not , are they using the name "im a junglist" in vain to look cool be cool .... i dont know ,...

    i dont claim to be , .... but thats me ,... my way of thinking on the situation etc , totally different to how alot of you will see it ,.. o well ....

    be nice to know what makes you think your a junglist though ,.!

    Personally I only think u can refer to yourself as a junglist if u went to the old school raves 'back in the day' which i never went to, so i would never refer to myself as one, I do occasionally refer to myself as a raver, since i been goin to illegal raves since i was young, but then again, the cynics just like to tear in to you. Best thing is just not to label yourself as anything.

    it's just another label at the end of the day. maybe for people trying to justify their status within a scene, or maybe some people feel they truely understand what being a junglist is all about.... maybe they just want to feel as if they fit in.

    who knows really.

    i may claim to be a junglist, in jest. but there's no seriousness behind it really.

    whereas i am a total badman, and i mean that whole heartedly.

    :lol:

    idont get this whole RUDE / BADMAN thing ... again the words mean different things to different people

    if some says yeah he/shes RUDE - means shes dont keep her knickers on very long or shes an arrogent bitch so far up her own ass she can see her own broken heart !

    same again in the term BADMAN - gives me visions of someone that negative ,... :mrpanic:and i know your not ... :lol:

    o well , getting to old for all this i spose ...

    always happened, always will

    teddy boys, greasers, mods, rockers, hippies, skinheads, eighties guy...

    imo theres always a core and theres always the followers,it doesnt matter where u fall in the spectrum once it starts to consume ur life, and i mean completely take over in this case thats mixing, producing, listening and promoting the music 24/7, time & money, is when u'd be a 'junglist'

    the mods on here are perfect examples of what i'd call a true junglist, especially jay walker if what i've heard about the podcast is true

    big ups

    i suppose alot of it is in tone of voice, for example a baaaadman is a ruuude but a bad man is just rude
    hard to explain in text but hopefully "yagetsmeh" :mrpanic:

    head over to http://www.urbandictionary.com/ if ur still gettin stumped;)

    A Junglist is someone who eats, sleep and breaths Drum'n'Baas/Jungle..... FULL STOP.....


    If dnb is one of the firsts thing you think about when you woke up then consider yourself a Junglist!!

    tbh i do think the term junglist belongs to the people who were there from day 1 of the jungle scene but these days its adapted to the younger generation
    like i havnt been there since day 1 but i'll happily refer to myself as a junglist as dnb is an evolved form of jungle and its the only form of music ive been able to properly enjoy over the last few years hence i refer to myself as a junglist

    I love DNB but I wouldnt call myself a junglist, coz I dont wear camo puffa jackets and sunglasses at night - in my head 'junglist' is just a way of dressing really

    i use the term junglist quite liberally. i recon its someone tho enjoys drum and bass...and contributes to the scene, weather it be bying records, making music or going to raves.
