015: Ragga Jungle 1995 - DJ Stepwise (Oakland)

An all-vinyl mix of classic mid-90s ragga jungle by DJ Stepwise

After a brief hiatus, 30m returns with a fresh installment. DJ Stepwise steps up for episode 015, this time turning the dial back 25 years with an all-vinyl, mid-1990s ragga jungle selection. Similar to hip hop in America and baile funk in Brazil, jungle was a force in England’s inner cities in the early 90s. At a time when folks of color were relegated to the sidelines of the UK club scene, redemption came in the form of jungle music. Taking popular club sounds and interweaving them with their own cultural fabric, the 90s saw a significant shift in the UK rave scene, as black and brown producers began carving out a space for themselves in the white-dominated industry. Perhaps the most iconic example of this was ragga jungle, where reggae basslines and vocals were chopped and screwed alongside popular EDM beats of the day, creating a revolutionary soundtrack that was equal parts uptown and downtown. An avid “junglist” in the 90s, in this episode DJ Stepwise hand picks a choice selection of rare vinyl from his personal collection of original pressings – clicks, pops and all.
