A quick post on the latest Rupture night. The event took place on Bank Holiday Sunday and boasted the following line-up:
The highlights of the night for me were the sets by Double O & Mantra and Fabio:
This mix was supposed to be the sequel to Junglist Credentials Part 1, but when I finished it I realised that it has a very different sound so I decided to give it a new name instead of simply calling it “Part 2”.
The idea behind it is the same, however: to recreate the atmosphere I experienced while listening to London’s pirate radio as a teenager in the mid-90s. The track listing dates back to circa 1994 and once again there are a few lesser known tunes thrown into it for good measure.

This mix contains a selection of Jungle tracks that I heard on London’s pirate radio in the mid-90s. The tracks are lesser known but for me they define the moment when Jungle was just forming as a genre, still very much underground yet flourishing for those who knew where to look and listen.
As a teenager in London in the mid-90s, I was influenced by the city’s underground music and pirate radio scene. This blog is about reflecting that influence and inspiration with some of my experimental work including videos and music mixes.
