If you happen to be into Jungle music & the surrounding scene, you will have heard of Junglist Movement and be aware of its brand position within the genre & UK underground culture.
The brand was most famously showcased in the 1999 film Human Traffic which starred John Simm & Danny Dyer.
Many of your favourite artists from drum & bass / jungle and beyond have been spotted wearing Junglist Movement t-shirts including headz such as General Levy, Grooverider, Fabio, Lenzman, Makoto, D Bridge, D Double E, Calibre, Harry Shotta, Degs, Killa Kella & Collette Warren to name just a few!
The Man Behind The Brand
Leke Adesoye, the founder of the Junglist Movement brand, has all his life suffered from sickle cell anaemia; this means he has to have blood exchanges every six weeks without fail, or it can lead to massive organ failure and other life-changing ailments.
Recently Leke fell at a gig and hurt his leg. Five months later and he has now been diagnosed with Giant Cell Tumour Of The Bone, a rare, aggressive but non-cancerous tumor, which affects just one in every million people.
Leke is currently confined to hospital while he battles this illness and is in good spirits, but naturally, he is concerned about the welfare of his family while he is in bed ridden and unable to run things in his normal high speed fashion!
A GoFundMe campaign has been set up with the aim of raising £10,000 in order to take some of the financial pressure away from him so he can focus on getting back to full health and being a pillar within our drum & bass community!
