Jungle is what drum n bass was before the drums got standardized into Kick [Pause] Snare [Pause] [Pause] Kick Snare aka Doof Crack, Doof-Crack. As opposed to Trance, Techno or (most) House's Kick [Pause] Clap [Pause] Kick [Pause] Clap [Pause] aka Doof Clap, Doof Clap. Obviously both can have hi-hats over them for that Uhn-Tiss Uhn-Tiss that Bloodhound Gang sang about.Bwarch wrote:Never did take the time to learn what the heck jungle is as a genre.
For general recommendations, my favourite type of Trance is Goa Trance. To get into that I would recommend listening to PsycloneD's excellent YouTube series "This Is Goa Trance", which is a selection of his personal favourites, and he's got good taste. He also does a This Is Acid series which is good too, because hard acid is great.
Also, if you've ever thought to yourself "What would happen if drum n bass got crossed with trance and/or 80s synthpop and became much less serious?" then I would definitely recommend checking out John B. He's a really fun listen. Here's some of my favourites of his:
