Not a harder version of drum and bass - this just is what drum and bass was called before it was called drum and bass. The term is mostly now used to refer to drum and bass tunes released between 1992 - 1996 (especially those with ragga vocals) ie. "old skool jungle". Is also used to describe drum and bass in general.

jungle is a type of music that emerged circa '94, it is characterised by chopped up amen drum breaks and low basslines, and sometimes ragga vocals. it is NOT the same as drum n bass. if any waste says it is, slap the cunt.

Area in South Central Los Angeles belonging to the Black Peace Stones(BPS), a notorious Westside Bloodz Gang. All around you are very tall trees and large run-down apartments. The streets in the Jungles are very twisted and tricky...if you're not careful you could end up on a very dangerous drug dealing street. There are also lots of dead ends in the Jungles(J's), like Palmwood Street. Palmwood is the street Training Day was filmed on with Bloodz on the rooftop. The best advice i can give is to respect the Jungles as a Blood City and if you're not from there don't go there!
LAPD usually rides 10 cars deep when they go into the Jungles. Even for a simple, routine problem. The Jungles are surrounded by rival gang neighborhoods, including the Rollin Sixties Crip Gang, Rollin Forties Crip, Rollin Thirties Crip, and the 18st.Gang. However, they manage to handle business and protect their neihborhood from outsiders.

During the 60's a track was produced known as the Amen, which included a 10 second drum loop. This 10 second drum sample changed the modern music industry for ever, it became one of the most noticable and iconic beats in jungle and drum and bass's history.

Percieved to be the forefather of drum and bass and its many sub genres. During the 1990's a new scene was becoming popular; Hardcore, breakcore and rave started to appear regularly in clubs.
However the birth of jungle comes from the illegal warehouse parties themselves, where people where into the hyper melodical piano samples and the high pithched voice of which resembles a hypnotic female cartoon vocalist.

However in 1992, two genres broke of from the rave scene (other genres like breakbeat, techstep, etc were also broken down into seperate genres).
These genres were what we know today as jungle and happy hardcore.

jungle usually afflicts itself with ragga, hip-hop and even happy hardcore ( more genres are included however my resources are limited). The Amen break which is basically the ground or basic beat of jungle has been over produced into several different versions, which funnily enough all versions have alot incommon with each other.

It is said by many that drum and bass is slowly taking over most listeners with its more complex and experimental beats, but still, people say that drum and bass is dieing.

This is far from true, like rave , jungle too seperated into different genres and drum and bass looks like the most dominant one.
