Fundamental Proudly Presents.. Booyah!

A night celebrating Jungle music in all its iterations. From Reggae and the original Jungle Sound, through its evolution into Drum & Bass, Garage and more recently Jungle influenced sounds including Dubstep, J.Tek, 3beat, Juke etc. This is the first installment of an on going series that will showcase the country’s wide range of Jungle minded talent.

On these nights the roots of Jungle will always be represented by strictly vinyl sets. We see this as fundamental. Aiming to deliver not just the anthems but also rare dubplates in their original glory. The future of the sound will be equally represented with DJ sets showcasing the latest aspects of the Jungle movement including the hottest digi-dub selections on offer.

So round up the whistle posse, get yourself an air-horn and dust off that itchy lighter finger!
