Big Dada are proud and pleased to announce that they will release the album Jungle Revolution by Congo Natty on 1 July 2013. Congo Natty aka Rebel MC has a career dating back to his early hit with Double Trouble, "Street Tuff," but is probably most respected as one of the pioneers of Jungle - perhaps the first uniquely UK-born bass music. Jungle Revolution features the whole of the extended Congo Natty family and was mixed with Adrian Sherwood. Clearly showing this Rasta's belief that Jungle is a re-boot of roots reggae for a new century, the record is full of blood and fire, the sternum-buzz of sub-bass, rapid fire drum breaks, sweet hooks, righteous anger and professions of religious fervour. It’s the kind of passionate, committed, raw and spiritual, beautiful record that doesn’t come along every day.

To celebrate this release, we are giving away the track "UK Allstars," which features a who's who of British soundsystem culture. This is the first time ever that this line up have all appeared on one track together and so also marks a historic coming together of a scene which lies at the roots of so much of what we now take for granted in UK music, from dubstep to grime to drum & bass and beyond.

I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have a project called Fog which is on Ninja Tune. I have made music my entire life, it is the only thing which I really feel that I am really good at. I play turntables, piano, guitar, words, drums, drum machines, knobs, bells, whistles, bass, trumpet, kitchen sink, chopsticks, feather duster, chewing gum not all necessarily well or in that order of preference. My music is often autobiographical but hopefully universal. Personal, but hopefully not too self-centered. My favorite color is red, though these days I have come to appreciate the equal importance of blue and its role in my life. I am a Leo, so I guess this means I need lots of attention and praise but I am also very loving and loyal. You could say, however, that I am still "on the fence" as it were on the subject of astrology. When Fog plays live, I have an outstanding band that is my primary musical inspiration. They are: Mark Erickson, Jeremy Ylvisaker, Martin Dosh and Mike Lewis. I am 24 years old. I have a girlfriend named Julie who owns a record store, and I use records that I get there to make music with. I am in love with her. I have friends called Anticon, they are from Oakland and they inspire me in life and in art. I enjoy the music of Anticon, Albert Ayler, Idaho, Charles Mingus, Eric B and Rakim, Stars of the Lid, Scientist, Centipede, Claude Debussy and many others. I enjoy music. I enjoy coffee, though I think I gotta cut down on that shit. Lots of times I am embarrassed to be an American. These days I try to see music as not only a means of escape, but also a means of communication, both overt and psychic. I try to push boundaries without letting that make me cynical. That's all I got for now.
