ROAR wraps up our two-part interview with jungle originator KENNY KEN, bringing you yet another fascinating insight into the history of a genre currently undergoing an exciting resurgence. First harking back to the ‘90s, Kenny – AKA KEN DELSOL – talks about the 1994 split between jungle and hardcore and how jungle found massive worldwide success after it morphed into what we know as drum and bass – but admits the scene has had issues with “two faced” people. Kenny also tells how he hung up his raving boots in the mid-2000s to focus on his career, including producing, which he says he’s been perfecting during lockdown – so watch out world! And with the ‘90s rave sound on a comeback, he has words of advice for all aspiring artists looking to break through. Plus we discuss the legend that is the late STEVIE HYPER D and Kenny’s favourite year of the ‘90s rave scene, while his assessment of digital versus vinyl will make traditionalists’ heads spin! Up next week is another cracking chat with the don of happy hardcore and Bonkers founder, DJ HIXXY!
