Ruffneck Ting is a legendary jungle/drum & bass event night in Bristol, controlled by the lovely DJ Dazee and, at one time, MC Jakes. One of the very first jungle mixtapes I owned was ripped copy of a Dazee and Jakes mix from Ruffneck Ting. I was so into the RT tapes that I would design and print out my own covers during my overnight job at Kinko’s. Subsequently, I wore those tapes down to nothing.
This mix isn’t that Dazee tape, but it is the indomitable DJ Hype and MC Jakes rinsing out the Ruffneck Ting crowd way back in 1995. Enjoy.
