And a nod to the man of the moment...
Enjoyed this Bowie-goes-jungle track at the time for a bunch of reasons -- as much as it could be seen as bandwagon-jumping, as a genre-patriot I did it find it affirming that an artist that major and iconic (proper use of the over-deployed and utterly devalued word, in this case) would recognise it as the force it was, would want to jump on jungle. Also it's rather well done: Bowie's vocal and melody bobs and weaves sweetly amid the Renegade Snares choppage. Furthermore I was impressed that the dude had really done his homework -- read an interview with DB circa Earthling and he's referencing Kemet Crew. Which is digging deeper than the public face of jungle at that time ie. Goldie, Bukem, Photek.
That said, he really should have hired some proper underground junglists to do remixes of tracks off Earthling. Adam F did redo this "Little wonder" B-side track (also a bonus tk on the album).
And there was a jungle mix of "I'm Deranged". Here it is performed live on the Earthling tour!
The next single off the album was less jungalistic and more rocktronica
Perhaps as a Londoner, he liked the just-4-U-London-ness of jungle. The mod-of-the-90s-ness of it.
