Renegade terrorist always cuts me up a bit. That wrong sample. And the drop, it just goes. It reminds me of early days at uni, specifically one night when I got spannered and ate my mouth out, saw all these people I knew from lectures, staring at me, cos I was fooked

Can't remember whether Raime and/or Fact are cancelled around these parts, but this mix from 2011 is a halfway convincing picture of an alternate history where jungle went goth. A fast car cutting through the Shinjuku rain at night, a glimpse of tear streaked eyes in the back seat, you know the drill. Cinematic.

I do find this quite a hard challenge as well cos to me, the best jungle is simultaneously sad and euphoric. That's sort of the whole point, the two impulses together.
And depressing jungle I’d read as shit jungle .... that might make me feel nothing, or irritable, make me want to put on good jungle

is not like other people
It’s probably inaccurate but I see melancholy as sadness you get some pleasure from
