Words by Jesse Serwer—
Our own DJ Gravy is among those predicting a big comeback for jungle and drum and bass, and hopefully leading the way will be Congo Natty (aka Rebel MC of Double Trouble fame), one of the main guys who helped lead the way in the first place. The jungle pioneer has just signed with influential UK label Big Dada, which will release his Jungle Revolution LP (mixed by Adrian Sherwood) on June 17.
The first single, “UK Allstars,” lives up to its name with a certified who’s who of British MC legends— Tenor Fly, Top Cat, General Levy, Tippa Irie, Sweetie Irie and Daddy Freddy—sharing mic duties on a track for the first time ever (plus some wicked Prince Far I and Fuzzy Jones samples, too).
