So where are they playing in Glasgow?
Jungle Nation has been running for 13 years in Aberdeen and started operations in Glasgow this year.
Tell me more about the headliners
Chase & Status will be DJing. It’s the biggest guests that Jungle Nation have had in their Glasgow incarnation. The duo started out as drum & bass producers and then made, or arguably, led the transition, into dubstep. Collaborations with grime’s Kano led to the Apache-sampling ‘Against All Odds’ and other tracks such as ‘Saxon’ and ‘Eastern Jam’ from debut album More Than A Lot, have made it onto many a DJs mixtape, while hitting crossover chart success with ‘End Credits’ from the soundtrack to Harry Brown featuring Plan B on vocals. Recent work has included production for Rihanna and their second album featuring Dizzee Rascal and Wiley is due out in November. Performing alongside will be MC Rage, a veteran of the London drum & bass scene.
What should we expect then?
Big wobbly basslines, dashes of breakbeat and yet more bass.
How’s the support line-up shaping up?
DJ Tez, who has been running Jungle Nation in Aberdeen since back in the day and DJ Amba who promotes the Hush Hush and Everything Else Sucks nights in Aberdeen. MC AC, resident at Edinburgh’s weekly drum & bass party, Split, will also be on hand to help out on the mic.
Just the one arch open then?
Nope, there is a second one headlined by Nero, another drum & bass-turned-dubstep double act. Best known for their remix of The Streets’ ‘Blinded by the Lights’, they have also reworked tracks by Deadmau5 and La Roux. Supporting them will be Giles Walker (Hush Hush) and local boy Jongerre, playing garage, UK funky and other house derivatives.
