It first emerged from the white heat of the UK rave explosion around 1991-92 as one flavour among many – often referred to at the time as “jungle tekno” – but in late 1993 it achieved its final form. Having continually sped up and become more complex, its sampled hip-hop breakbeats had completely cut loose from the regular pounding of techno kickdrums, adopting wild patterns closer to a feral cyborg jazz than to any existing dance music form, and its vast bass tones influenced by Jamaican dub and dancehall became overwhelming.
