I’ve gotten some really good feedback on my Footwork / Jungle remixes I’ve been putting together. It started about 7-8 months ago when I got turned on to the sound from Phillip D. Kick aka Om Unit. He released 3 volumes of Footwork / Jungle remixes of some classic Jungle tracks. I’ve been huge on Jungle since the mid – late 90’s and have been collecting it on vinyl since 98. So I’ve gone thru some of my favorite tunes in a hybrid jungle, footwork, drum and bass, juke style.

If you’re into this sound make sure to check out Machinedrum, .. also The Host (aka Boxcutter) and Kuedo have some similar 160 bpm sounds but more along the lines of Minimal Juke but have similar sounds and styles to the early Intelligent Drum and Bass days. Those guys all have releases on Planet Mu … actually you should be checking out every release that label puts out … QUALITY!
Another dude making the Footwork / Jungle sound is Bristol’s ActRaiser … I chatted with him recently and he’s been working hard putting together some studio mixes along with remixes of some Jungle rarities in the Footwork style.
ActRaiser – Lost in Jungle
Keep an out for my Doc Scott – Unofficial Ghost Footwork/ Jungle Remix in an upcoming mix of his. Don’t forget to listen to his Dubstep and Drum and Bass tracks … very talented producer!
