This chapter examines the emergence of jungle, the first original black musical culture in London. It discusses the relation of jungle both to rave and to the Black Atlantic traditions of reggae, hip hop and soul, and argues that jungle can be thought of as both a distinct black British musical form and as articulating a particular form of multicultural politics. It explores the emergence of jungle from the ‘ardkore circuits of East London in the way 1990s, and the approach to technology that links it with wider black Atlantic practice.
