I heard this track on an old mix earlier today and could barely stop myself from jumping up in the middle of the office and breaking some serious moves. OK, so maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. Whatever.
I know that just about everything to do with Incredible by M-Beat & General Levy is considered to be a joke now, but at the time I absolutely loved it. The energy is amazing and, to my rather jaded ears at least, is still very obvious. It’s not the fault of M-Beat or General Levy that jungle, in this form at least, was soon co-opted by gangsters and the real-life precursors to Ali G. Leave your preconceptions at the door and try to understand that this was, and is, incredible.
Anyway, apart from anything else, this track was responsible for the best dance-music related joke ever:
Why did the monkey get lost?
Because jungle is massive
