part one of a truely terrible and cheesy documentary on jungle (the rawer precursor to drum and bass) which is interesting if you can get past the shit poor narration, touches of sensationalism, and the way it’s constructed. Watch out for the mention of the Atari ST (my first computer!) as an important enabler for late 80s/early 90s dance music (it came with midi ports built in was was relatively cheap) and a young shy fx making tracks in his bedroom.
