The sound of jungle is intrinsically linked with the computers and samplers of the 1980s and 1990s.
Sound On Sound magazine liked up with jungle producer Pete Cannon for an exclusive chat about how and why he’s still using old skool studio equipment such as Akai samplers, and sequencing on Atari and Amiga computers.

In the video Pete Cannon breaks down the unique features of the Akai samplers that helped to forge the classic jungle production techniques such as time stretching, chopping up an amen break, using “Chord Memory” to play rave stabs & much more.
