PLAYLIST Welcome to the Jungle Drum-and-bass titans Chase & Status revisit four tracks that helped shape their career When jungle hit the UK rave scene in the early ’90s, it was the deep, dub-like basslines and echoes of Jamaican reggae culture that set the genre apart from other breakbeat-driven derivatives. This was also one of the reasons why Londoners Saul Milton and Will Kennard fell in love with the music as teenagers. Today they’re better known as Chase & Status – arguably the world’s most successful drum-and-bass act – and on their latest album, RTRN II JUNGLE, the duo (pictured with ‘third member’ MC Rage, left) pay homage to the genre. Here, they list four jungle/drum-and-bass tunes that sparked their passion… Listen to Chase & Status’ Fireside Chat on Red Bull Radio on Mixcloud; mixcloud.com DAN WILTON FLORIAN OBKIRCHER DMS & The Boneman X Sweet Vibrations (1994) Milton: “One of the earliest [jungle] tunes that caught my attention. Everything about it – the drums, the percussion, the dancehall vocals they sampled – sounded so different to anything I’d heard before. This is what jungle did so well back then: you’d just have loads of different vibes on one track, which either didn’t make any sense or made perfect sense, like in the case of this tune.” PFM One & Only (1995) Kennard: “In the mid ’90s, Good Looking Records dominated the jungle scene, particularly the more atmospheric style that people at the time called ‘liquid’. PFM were a group on that label and had a string of groundbreaking releases. On this track they’re using pads, samples and strings, which was really cutting-edge and sort of led into what Goldie was doing with [his drum-and-bass label] Metalheadz.” Adam F Circles (1995) Milton: “It was around 1996 when I heard this tune for the first time. It would have been on a pirate radio station, and the track shaped my youth. Whereas other jungle tunes use reggae or dancehall elements to go deep, Adam F maintained this vibe with lavish pads and playful percussion. Consequently, it became a timeless classic that works on the radio as well as at a rave at three in the morning.” Leviticus Burial (1994) Kennard: “This tune has become synonymous with jungle and has one of the genre’s most recognised hooks. What makes it so legendary is the use of lots of different samples to create something new and unique. The producer behind it, Jumping Jack Frost, is an absolute legend and a pioneer of the genre. I just finished reading his book, in which he talks about his musical journey. Highly recommended.” THE RED BULLETIN 17
