Welcome to the latest newsletter from the team at Hardcore Junglism! Over the past few weeks we have added a whole bunch of great new content including some more exclusive content to the store.
Stars Of The Underground Video
Back in the mid 1990′s De Underground Records in London’s Forest Gate was one of the main hubs for Hardcore, Jungle and DNB. Located on Sebert Road the store also contained the studio where Coolhand Flex produced many of the huge Jungle and DNB anthems from the 90s. With DJ’s and producers propping up the counter and DJ Randall manning the decks the store was a melting pot of talent and huge release’s.
Film maker Roy Thomas spent hours filming in the shop and also travelling to events to film with the DJ’s and Producers that visited and worked there. With the intention of compiling the footage for commercial release a trailer was edited. Unfortunately the project never happened but Randall recently unearthed this trailer for Hardcore Junglism and Roy has very kindly agreed that we can upload this amazing piece of history for everyone to enjoy.
The video features face’s such as Randall, MC Fats, Coolhand Flex, MC Duke, Mike De Underground, Vocalist Michelle Tompson and many more of the shops regulars.
Uncle 22 Back Cat added to the store!
With a production career starting in 1989 Uncle 22 aka Desmond Fearon quickly stamped his mark on the early Hardcore and Jungle scene with release’s on labels such as Ram Records and Strictly Underground
Still making music to this day and with a huge back catalogue we are very happy to announce selected works from Uncle 22 are now available exclusively on Hardcore Junglism.
With tracks such as the anthem “Choose One” with Navigator through to early hardcore release’s on I E Records there is a great selection of music available.
Coolhand Flex Interview
We recently had an indepth chat with the legendary producer that is Coolhand flex about his history in the Hardcore and DNB Scene. Preferring in the past to let the music do the talking interviews with Flex have been few and far between in the past so we set out to talk abut the history of Coolhand flex and the stories from behind De underground records, Mac II Recordings and everything inbetween.
New Pop Up Audio Player Live Now
We recently added a pop up audio player to the site meaning you can que tracks to the player and continue to browse the site without having to stay on individual track pages or have loads of tabs open in your browser. You can also add tracks to the cart easily using the options on the player next to each track making using the store much easier. It’s still in a beta phase but seem’s to be working out so far.
Youtube Dubplate playlist
We have added all of our exclusive dubplates to one playlist on our Youtube channel so you can queue them all for your listening pleasure!
