The original Junglists brought the noise for Shy FX's Cult.ure finale

Jungle | Friday 30th November 2018 | Rosh

You had to be there to understand. How many times have you heard that I bet?  But that was the general answer of those who attended Shy FX's last night of his Cult.ure series last week when asked how it was.

Shy FX brought out some of the big dogs to close his innovative Cult.ure series last week to put on a mid-week jungle party which had the rude boys and girls slapping the speakers for reloads. Bringing it right back to Jungle's glory years, the one and only DnB Executioner, Ram records head honcho and overall "badman" deejay, Andy C,  stole the show with an epic throwback Jungle Drum and Bass set that only he could recreate, reminding many of the old school junglists in attendance of his legendary sets down at AWOL Paradise Club in Islington back in the day. He made his name back in the nineties as one of Drum and Bass's standout deejays and producers and his energetic and charismatic performance for Cult.ure reminded us why he now effortlessly sells out Wembley Arena by himself.

Another Jungle don who graced the set and "tore down" the dance on the night was the original Jungle party starter, Kenny Ken with the legendary Ragga Twins on hosting duties. Kenny brought the dubplates down that made him the people's favourite and rinsed them out to perfection for the rampant midweek skankers for the last set of the night. 

The overall evening was definitely emotional and in a good way. The vibes and energy were high all night, with the crowd really appreciating every tune that was thrown at them and had the majority jumping and screaming for more whilst working up a sweaty junglistic frenzy. The Cult.ure series continues to gather momentum and recreate some of the vibes and raw energy the scene was about when it first started. We can't wait to see where the next chapter of this popular series takes us, but given that the likes of Lilly Allen, Idris Elba, Mike Skinner, Andy C and Octavian supporting the Cult.ure series in the past, we just know we are not going to be disappointed, even if it means nursing the mother of all "Wray and Nephew" hangovers the morning after.
