Rumble in the Jungle

Various Artists

Soul Jazz Records

This compilation on the mighty Soul Jazz label serves as an overview of the “ragga jungle” sound of the mid-1990s. This was the jungle subgenre that drew most deeply on roots and dancehall reggae, as exemplified by Asher Senator’s deeply conscious “One Bible” and the horticultural combination track “Under Mi Sensi” featuring Barrington Levy and Beenie Man. There are classic numbers like Cutty Ranks’ “Limb by Limb” and UK Apachi’s “Original Nuttah,” but also some obscurities that even longstanding jungle fans may not have heard.
