If one man could be synonymous with jungle, you’d struggle to find a more suitable subject than Congo Natty aka Rebel MC. A custodian of the genre for over two decades, the Tottenham local is known as one of the pioneers of the high-speed UK sound, and will be received as such when he heads North of Hadrian’s Wall to play La Belle Angele in Edinburgh on Thursday 18th January.
A performer of such high regard will be a delight to Scottish promoters Bass Belly, who celebrate the finest examples of British sound system culture at their bass in Auld Reekie. Securing Congo Natty, who recently released an LP titled Jungle Revolution, will guarantee them their fill of soulful vocals as well as the startling drum breaks and rumbling sub frequencies that are expected of dub-rooted music events, and with Iron Dread and Congo Dubz also featuring, it’ll be no surprise if there’s a bit of extra buzz around Edinburgh this week.
