from a couple years ago - produced by Redlight aka drum 'n' bass producer Clipz
if you told me that was a dark'n' lush jungle tune from 1995 over which she'd just thrown a new vocal, i'd totally believe you
it isn't, is it?
"out in the jungle/fighting like a lion" -- so goes the lyric on this, which doesn't sound like vintage jungle
more modern sounding and making me wonder why Bratt didn't do a Katy B
hang on a minute, hang on a minute...
"Mz. Bratt's father was MC Scallywag from the early 1990s acid house sound system, Spiral Tribe."
AND TO THINK THEY SAY THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS THE HARDCORE CONTINUUM!
see i used this next track, which is Scallywag over a Grant Nelson production, big tune summer 1992, as evidence in my FACT Liverpool lecture re. the thread of MC-ology running from hardcore to jungle to UKG to grime
the contiNUUM there, that's genealogical not just genreological
a family tree of MC to MC
