Jungle Music Description

Jungle is a mainly sample-based style of Electronic music that emerged during the mid-90's in the UK. The genre emerged out of styles such as Hardcore, often using the same breakbeats and the same equipment. Jungle is characterized by high tempos (160 to 175 BPM being the average), chopped-up and often seemingly random breakbeat sequencing, heavy basslines, Reggae influence, and the iconic sound of Akai cyclic timestretch. Jungle also focuses on a sense of atmospheric intelligence contrasting with the violent sound of high tempo drums and basslines, juxtaposing the sounds of Romplers and samples of New-Age songs with the heavy, relentless chopping of breaks such as the famous Amen break. It is said to have given birth to such genres as Drum And Bass and Breakcore.
