Jungle!: The Last Dance Underground

Kodwo Eshun, i-D, May 1994

Jungle is a fierce and frenzied soundtrack to inner city Britain in '94. Based around raw, ragga-influenced white labels, raves and pirate radio stations, it's a scene with its own heritage and heroes, although the only media attention they get is negative. We went deep into the underground to meet dance music's outlaws.
