Shy FX & UK Apache - 'Original Nuttah' (1994)
No this isn't a joke, this was a serious track! I loved this song! Talk about blast from the past! Do you remember when jungle and pirate radio stations were all the rage? I always felt very out of place when my friends were talking about them at school. I was more comfortable with Blur and Oasis then tuning into guys MCing over crackly reception giving 'shout outs' every two minutes. I didn't think I'd get to grips with it until I got a new stereo with an automatic radio station tuner. It was extremely sensitive and the excitement of not only finding a station, but finding one with good drum and bass on it was great. I didn't know much about what was in though, but I soon discovered these 2 classic tracks that epitomise what jungle was all about. Its a mish mash of ragga, drum and bass and serious DJ/MCing.
