Big Dada are proud and pleased to announce that they will release the album Jungle Revolution
by Congo Natty on June 17th 2013. Congo Natty aka Rebel MC has a career dating back to his early hit with Double Trouble, “Street Tuff,” but is probably most respected as one of the pioneers of Jungle – perhaps the first uniquely UK-born bass music.Jungle Revolution
features the whole of the extended Congo Natty family and was mixed with Adrian Sherwood. Clearly showing this Rasta’s belief that Jungle is a re-boot of roots reggae for a new century, the record is full of blood and fire, the sternum-buzz of sub-bass, rapid fire drum breaks, sweet hooks, righteous anger and professions of religious fervour. It’s the kind of passionate, committed, raw and spiritual, beautiful record that doesn’t come along every day.
To celebrate this release, we are giving away the track “UK Allstars,” which features a who’s who of British soundsystem culture. This is the first time ever that this line up have all appeared on one track together and so also marks a historic coming together of a scene which lies at the roots of so much of what we now take for granted in UK music, from dubstep to grime to drum & bass and beyond.
