Undiscovered Bum - Old Skool Jungle Party 113.21

After I graduated high school, I spent the summer of '96 on Long Island, where I befriended a group of misfits who enjoyed hanging out until the wee hours of the morning.  They listened to a strange form of music I hadn't heard before: jungle - dark electronics over crazy percussion.  This wasn't thump-thump techno, it was something really interesting and exciting.

When I returned to CA, I bought a slew of jungle comps, even some vinyl, and found that several of my friends were also into this music.  

It was only natural that I'd try my hand at a jungle set once I started DJing.  Considering it was my first go, it came out pretty well.

This is the first installment of a series, with many more to come.
