Influences: Hip Hop

There’s no doubt that Hip Hop had a huge influence on Hardcore and Jungle music throughout the 90s. Many of the scene’s leading lights including DJ Hype, Danny Breaks and DJ Crystl all came from a Hip Hop/Electro background before upping the tempo for the ravers.

History Sessions: Britcore (1988 – 1991)

It must be frustrating for UK Hip-Hop. Every time it’s about to break through, it gets eclipsed by another scene that comes along to steal the moment. In the early noughties it was dubstep and grime. Back in the late 80’s to early 90’s it was the rave scene.
