Jungle is a high-energy style of dance music that originated on the streets of London around 1992. Jungle is the term originally used at the time of the genre’s inception. While Drum & Bass is the standard reference term for the music, the term “Junglist” was associated with those committed to the lifestyle, and is still used today.”
This sounds AWESOME! Can’t wait to see how “The American Jungle” turns out, it definitely sounds promising!
