RANDOMNESS: Bristol Jungle Documentary – Sounds of the West 1996

An excellent (near) half hour documentary which takes you through the Bristol Jungle scene of 1996.
Bristol was a hotbed for UK music, as well as the Full Cycle crew, the West Country city was responsible for the ‘Trip Hop’ explosion of the mid 90′s with artists such as Portishead (who I worship), Tricky and Massive Attack among others.
Of course a year later in ’97 Roni Size and his live ensemble ’Reprazent‘ blew up and acheived a landmark in Drum and Bass by lifting the (then) coveted Mercury Music Prize.
To the documentary; enjoy some classic jump up jungle and interviews / clips from DJ Storm, Jakes, Flynn and Flora, the Full Cycle gang and more.
