|keep reading wiki for your knowledge |
That's your come back? I don't need wiki for my knowledge. Like I said, my knowledge of the history of jungle is my record collection. Over 5,000 records and I really don't collect anything after 98 unless it's indie ragga or something representing the original sound. Been involved in the rave scene since the early 90s and seen the music evolve first hand.
You probably don't DJ or even produce, and if you do, you probably only play mp3s downloaded off slsk or cds. I could care less, because you've already proved you know nothing about the foundation and dissed the originators. Everything you posted came years later after what I posted and you call it the downfall? What does that say about your knowledge of jungle history? I still rock out parties with people dancing all night (so hard that my records skip), brocking out and flashing their lighters in my face to old school jungle and my own dubplates.
Hell man, you're from Chicago and if you were around the scene at the time it was at its prime you could have witnessed some of the most amazing jungle parties ever. 95 Brockout was monumental, but you already dissed that. Also had Snuggles' Strictly Jungle radio show on WNUR which was pretty much the first jungle weekly in the nation that brought in godless amounts of UK talent.
Listen to the real isht: http://www.goldenerajungle.com
Back on topic...dubstep is the isht because it's one of the only genres around currently that represents bits of every single other electronic genre out there. There are no rules with the production. I've heard plenty of straight up old school jungle tunes remixed or sampled and everything from house to dance tracks like the percolator to old school breakbeat rave, which is another newer genre becoming known more as fidget house. Hearing the same samples used in a completely different form is what makes it interesting and brings back the nostalgia.
If you want to say it's bootlegged dnb, then current dnb is just bootlegged house and trance, and in all reality, it really is...because when jungle started it's downfall was when dudes like Dieselboy started sampling trance and house tunes. Anything with a reese or mentasm is jacked. Anything that samples anything is jacked and therefore 99% of all electronic is bootlegged unless you're producing strictly with synthesis like old school house and techno.
On another dubstep tip, my homie Conscious Pilot has a new weekly show every sunday starting around 8PM EST. Playing mostly exclusive dubs, including NEPA locals: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/...bstep
