Culture Shock's Highest Moments of Jungle Euphoria

Culture Shock's been feeling a special vibe in the studio of late. He's been riffing off a ream of classic tracks that give you the feels (in that special spine tingling way) for his Sequence Series of releases. We've been tipped that the next single, which is due out this June, particularly draws from the airy end of the DNB spectrum so we asked Culture Shock to put together some of his all time favourite moments of Jungle euphoria for us before he lands in Room Two this Sunday night.

He's set to play for the after party for the bass driven segment of Arcadia's massive 10th Anniversary festival this weekend. In the day they have set up in Olympic Park with a specially constructed arena featuring the all famous fire breathing spider before we come back to EC1. Joint day & night tickets are available alongside stand alone tickets for the afters on RA (here.)

These are for lighting up the dance floor in a way that goes direct to the heart.


Da Intalex - What Ya Gonna Do

By the late great Marcus Intalex. For me, this might be the greatest intro of all time. I used to play this on repeat - it has a transcendent vibe that I don’t think has ever been matched. I’ve been playing it out in select sets recently which is testament to the quality of the track as it’s 24 years old.


LTJ Bukem - Horizons

Featured on the first CD ever owned - Jungle Mania 3 (mixed by Grooverider). This track stood out from the rest of the CD tracklist and just blew me away. This is definitely a track that first got me in to electronic music.


Sub Focus - Smooth

One of Sub Focus’ most sublime tracks - pure vibes, perfectly executed. Still sounds fresh today.


Commix - Strictly

My favorite Commix track. I remember hearing Andy C drop this for the first time at The End. Ridiculously lush strings in the intro which instantly sets the emotion before a contrasting heavy drop.


The Future Sound of London - Papua New Guinea [NuTone Remix]

Nu:Tone’s update of this seminal Jungle Anthem from The Future Sound of London. You’d be hard pressed to find a vocal which can affect you as much as this one.


Sub Focus - You Make It Better (feat. Culture Shock & TC)

I really enjoyed working on this collaboration with Nick Sub Focus for his second album, making use of TC’s impressive vocal skills - he should do more!

Crystal Fighters - Love Alight (Culture Shock Remix)

This is probably my most euphoric production to date and felt right to add to this list.


Bonus Tip: If you missed it first time round, here's Culture Shock going B2B with Dimension on a sunny London roof top.


Sunday 6th May
