“Undoubtedly one of the most influential cultural movements in the UK music scene came in the form of Jungle,” say the Overground crew. “In the early 90s, the accessibility of sampling technology set the stage for British producers to experiment with elements of Acid House, Techno, Hip Hop and sound system culture to create something new. Out of this disparate concoction of influences, Hardcore emerged.
Characterised by breakbeats and rave stabs, Hardcore needs no introduction to regular attendees of Overground. ’94 was the year of the infamous “hardcore split”. Mainstream hardcore was beginning to commercialise into “Happy Hardcore”, while Darkside producers distanced themselves into a more ominous and brooding sound: Jungle.
Throughout the night, your DJs will trace Jungle back to its genesis in the latter years of Hardcore through to the present day and looking to the future of the sound being championed by artists and labels such as Om Unit, Fracture and Exit Records.
