A various artists anthology of mostly great scorchers from the Trojan Records vaults given a "jungle" treatment by producer Mike Bennett in conjuction with the X-ERT Sound System. "Jungle" is the term used in England when dancehall is mixed with hip-hop. The English mix these styles in a completely different way than Jamaicans and Americans. The main difference is the overlaid tripple- time drumbeats, which almost consistently come to you through the rapid-fire programmed drum. You're either going to love it or hate it.
