Ruffneck Ting

Ruffneck Ting is a Bristol based jungle club that has been an integral partof the jungle and dnb music scene for three decades.

The club was founded in 1993 by DJ Dazee and Markee Ledge, who met by chance as house- sharing ravers but soon found their musical calling as Dj’s and producers, united by their passion for the emerging sound of jungle music. Since then, Ruffneck Ting has been suppor ted and nurtured by a growing loyal crew including Knowledge Magazine’s founders and dedicated jungle fans around the globe. The club has hosted countless memorable nights, from its residencies at the Trinity Centre to its recent appearances at festivals like Boomtown and Glastonbury. Along the way, it has become known for its commitment to promoting new talent, with many up- and- coming DJs, producers and MC’s getting their first break at Ruffneck Ting.

The warm and friendly jungle vibes that started on Bristol dance floors in 93, evolved onto wax in 1995 with the launch of Ruffneck Ting Records which helped take the sound to new worldwide audiences. Now with over 300 releases and artists like Serum, Jinx, Kjah, Verdikt, Saxxon of course Dazee contributing to the catalogue, the label has achieved a string of DL number ones and support from the scene’s biggest players.

Since its early exposure with Dazee and Jakes shows on Bristol Pirate Stations, Ruffneck Ting has continued to boldly broadcast its jungle- jump- up hybrid sound. The club features in a now infamous 1996 documentary aired on HTV “Sounds Of The West” alongside Roni Size, Krust, and Smith and Mighty and has featured on BBC Radio 1, 1xtra, BBC Radio 6, Ministry of Sound, Kool FM, SWU FM & UKF.

To celebrate its 30th Year, Ruffneck Ting has an album underway, the third in their “Xtraordinary League Of Junglists” series. The first single from the XLJ 3 album “Badder” by Euphonique & Bam Bam dropped in March 23 and will be followed by a series of singles and full album, ft label OG’s Dazee, Jinx and Kjah, plus fresh talent including Fryday and Jenni Groves. Additionally, “30 years of Ruffneck Ting” took place throughout 2023 at prestigious events hosted by Trinity, Motion, Arcadia, Run, Hospitality On The Beach and Love Saves The Day with more TBA for 2024.

Despite the music scene’s changes over the years, Ruffneck Ting has stayed true to its roots, remaining a fiercely independent and uncompromising force in the world of jungle music. For anyone looking to experience the raw energy and excitement of this genre, there' s no better place to be than Ruffneck Ting.

DJ Dazee - "Happiness" - (3:44) 175 BPM
Jenni Groves - "Charging" (Jinx remix) - (4:52) 175 BPM Hot
Review: Not content with dropping a massive compilation album with Euphonique on Jungle Cakes this month, Bristol legend Dazee is also laying the absolute smack down with this mighty triptych on her own imprint Ruffneck Ting. 'Watch The Bass' kicks off the EP with a series of big choppy breaks and woozy horns. It sets the scene and vibes for the rest of the EP as 'Happiness' harbours a simply stunning soulful sample midway, igniting a huge rush of euphoria, and Jinx joins the fray to finish up the EP with a killer remix of fellow Ruffneck warrior Jenni Groves. Watch out!

Badder (radio edit) - (3:57) 178 BPM
Review: Vibes ahoy! Euphonique and Bam Bam link up once again for 'Badder', a track that lives up to its name. The complete flip of their track - the heavily emotional 'Without You' - this new one rolls with headsy roller energy and empowering, triumphant lyrics. Only just emerging as a singer, Bam Bam is already holding it down and settling into her style with energy and class. Groove-wise Euphonique batters us all down with fat basslines and Clipz-like harmonics. Badder to the bone.

Review: Keeping things Bristol, keeping things raw and rugged, the long-standing Ruffneck Ting imprint welcome local up-and-comer Fryday for this savage five-tracker. Three originals deep, Fryday goes in with sizzling basslines and big anvil-like beats. 'Invasion' is all about the drama, 'Jack It' comes with a high voltage sizzling bassline while 'Pull' tears the place up with the squelchiest bassline this side of the River Avon. Throw in two massive remixes from K-Jah and the Ruffneck boss herself Dazee and you've got yourself an epic EP!

Review: Signal Jam bossman Distract steps up to one of Bristol's finest and longest running institutions - Ruffneck Ting. Six tracks deep - including a collaboration with the boss herself Dazee - the vibes are precision in weight, energy and soul ranging from massive tubular rumblers like 'Skatty Dub' to much more lighter-footed twinkly elements like the intro on 'Amazon' and 'Formula'. Elsewhere we've got damagement management on the block-hitting rhythm 'Listen' and savage tear-ups on 'Might Get Wobbed'. Nothing formulaic here mateys.

Review: The German gurner returns! Bavarian OG Bassface Sascha returns to Dazee's Ruffneck Ting with three junglised roughhouse rollers. We kick off with the fragrant bashes and turbulent terpenes of 'Hand Me The Herb', a raw horn-heaved track with bubbly subs and the crucial tones of man like Spyda. Instant reloader, it sets the energy levels for the rest of the EP as 'Dead Fool' calls out the time wasters before hurtling into a mischievous one note zippy riff vibe while Dazee joins in for the finale 'Ruffneck Business' goes full on tubular bass thunder. Complete with a massive remix from Aries, it's another top notch ting from the Bristol institution. Spark up!

Review: Ruffneck Ting are a label perfectly placed on the border between jungle and jump-up, and this EP from The Force displays their aptitude in selecting the best of both strains. It's a gentle, subtle yet damaging release, one which flows upon a bed of soul yet comes out with fists flying at the other end. 'Second Sight' has the type of funkiness that only reggae music can provide, with stabbing bass touches providing lift and sensation to its clattering, rough and tumble drums. 'Stop The Show' is heavier and has more weight packed behind its stuttering percussion, its bassline wonderfully bouncy and dripping with the sunny skies, eyes closed heritage of reggae and dub music. Wicked.

Review: Following a couple of samplers, Verdikt has the second part of his Ready Fe Dem LP dropping on Ruffneck Ting and it's absolutely unreal. Nine tracks long and full of diversity, this LP is full to the brim with urban attitude and gritty textures, from the scatty percussion of 'Monkey Head' to the clean, precise needle points of 'Rained Off'. 'Bristol Girls' is especially good, as warm synth waves bend themselves through the range and wrap around its tight, driving bassline, a rolling number which those into sound system culture will be all over. Top piece of work.

Batman - (4:10) 175 BPM Hot
Rained Off (feat Deviant) - (5:09) 172 BPM
Review: The accused looks up from the dock. First to the judge, then to the jury. They have this man's life in the palm of their hands. "What's the verdict for Verdikt?" asks the be-wigged judge, all pompous and gammon. "We find him guilty of two crimes of first degree gulliness!" they cry. The accused grins mischievously in response. If they found the swinging 60s horns and surreal rubber ball bassline drop of 'Batman' and the stripped back bubbling bassline wriggler 'Rained Off' gully then just wait until they hear even more the album. It's 'Ready Fe Dem' but are they ready for it?! The case continues...

Review: Ruffing up your lugholes as we stride into the bleakest of winters, Dazee's long-running Bristol imprint Ruffneck Ting deliver the first part of Verdikt's debut album 'Redy Fe Dem'. A mainstay on the label for the last five years, his rude, warm sound is the perfect fit; dark West Country rollage with samples and flavours from across the board. Each cut will have you reaching for the 'save for when the raves come back' folder. From the jet engine bass drones of the 97-flavoured 'Bust 45' to the dusty jazz and dulcet charms of Collette Warren on 'Wrong' (with Dazee) via the soothing rave pads and gutter-chomping bassline of 'Headbanger' (with Dissonant) and trippy bass wonkiness of 'Let Off', there's a stripped back consistency running through the whole collection which sets us up nicely for the imminent second part...

Ya Ya - (3:49) 175 BPM
Bust 45 - (4:33) 175 BPM
Let Off - (3:46) 175 BPM
Review: Ruffneck Ting have really outdone themselves with this one and it's courtsy of Verdikt, who, across four tunes, seriously rolls things out. It's the sampler for a forthcoming longer project and the standout tune is 'Wrong', featuring Dazee andd Collette Warren, the latter of whom smashes the vocal work as per usual, injecting that little something extra into a tune already thriving on its diet of wide snare hits and wibbly wobbly sub bass. 'Ya Ya' is a unique which reminds us of Bungle's 'Coccooned' with its repitition and relentlessness, except the bass in question isn't a constant note but another superbly wobbly sub bass. The others are equally stripped back, and we really love the barebones approach being taken here.

Coastill - "Peeping Tom" - (4:32) 174 BPM
Review: With comic book-esque artwork gearing things up with a funky aesthetic, Coastill is rolling out with abandon on Ruffneck Ting and he's joined by several of his mates: K Jah and Bass Antics, who both provide two remixes. It's a dirty expression of dancefloor pressure and things stay that way throughout, as title tune 'Casino' sets the tone with gruff, almost-tech stabs that squish and ooze their way through the range. Famed actor Burt Reynolds makes an appearance in name only on track two, another wobbling pacer that bounces almost as much as it bangs. Bass Antics nails things to the wall with his remix of 'All Clear', and 'Peeping Tom' rounds stuff out in rough and tumble fashion. Big.

Review: Euphonique has absolutely smashed this one. She's here with this four-track release packing all the creativity and attitude that we've come to expect. The first tune is vintage Euphonique, with an urban vocal and a stuttering array of jungle breaks that piece together into a really creative bit of music. The others are all pure rollers, with that Souped Up or KoTR vibe, and our favorite is probably 'Baddest Gal', just because that bassline is far too gully for us not to be into it. Big ups.

Flat T - "Liquid City" - (5:42) 175 BPM
Review: Ruffneck Ting have been too kind to us this week, as instead of amore standard single or four-track release, they've dropped an eight-track album of sorts, a collaborative effort by Erbman and Flat T which rolls out in absolute style. The percussive construction is a highlight of this release and 'Hit It' demonstrates this best, with a flurry of beats flying all over the shop and underpinned by a wobbling, movement-filled expression of low frequency oscillation. 'Late Night Blues' is our other favourite, with some gorgeous reggae sampling injecting a bit of funk and another excellent bassline providing the final heat. Wicked stuff.

Review: Last spotted on Ruffneck Ting's Xtraordinary League Of Junglists series, Vytol steps forth with his most comprehensive EP to date. Six slabs of utter gully, we kick off with the trippy rave hurricane "Elevate" and dive deeper and deeper into his nasty, venomous blend. Highlights include the rolling gnarly bust-up "Gamma Whan", the groaning rump-shaking rumbles of "Straight Up Soundboy" and the skin-melting finale "D Wave". Vital Vytol business in the area.

Review: There's a lot of dancefloor D&B out there that succumbs to cheesiness by forgetting that a tine isn't all about the drop, it has to have substance as well. The Force has nailed that over on Ruffneck Ting, pumping out a four-tracker that's rooted in a wobbley and deeply satisfying wave of subs and sines. There's a light hearted but determined edge to this release that fits in perfectly with the Bristol vibe and we're big fans, especially of 'Show Some Signal', which has an absolutely banging snare that synergises so well with its rippling back end. Sick EP!

Review: K Jah lands on Ruffneck Ting with a jungle-influenced journey through D&B's rougher side. Ruffneck Ting doesn't have a reputation for being a label that'll hold your hand and this is clearly evident throughout Mad Flavour, none more so than on the title track. With a barebones, stripped back approach that's reminiscent of Digital or Spirit, K Jah combines old-school sampling with a distinct rawness to emphasise the track's low-frequency weight. This style is replicated across the other tunes to varying degrees but there's one constant: unadulterated sounds with the aim of serious dancefloor pressure. If that's your thing, then this EP is certainly for you.

Review: Featuring some pretty creative if perhaps slightly polarising artwork, Verdikt lands on Ruffneck Ting with the Hands Up EP, a rolling mix of sounds and tones that lend themselves well to both the dancefloor and the bedroom. The title track exemplifies that perfectly, a subby underpin that transforms gradually into a monochromatic mash of force and energy. 'Crazy' opts for a wobblier outlook instead, featuring a fantastic, penetrating drum line that cuts underneath everything else. 'Rap Game's classic sounding rap sampling is the prelude to another flowing stream of low-frequency energy that would just go off live - banging EP.

Review: It would seem that the team at Ruffneck Ting have pulled out all the stocks here as they put together their 'The Xtraordinary League Of Junglists 2 (Level 1)' compilation, collecting up fifteen original dynamite sticks as they do so. The line-up contains a collection of high profile drums specialists, including DJ Hybrid, Erbman, Jinx, Bass Antics, Genetix and a host more. For us the highlights of this quite frankly super stacked project include Lion UK's dubwise roller in 'Hova Nova', alongside Flat T's scatty driver 'The Dragon' and Verdikt's super subby outing on 'Enemies'.

As always it's pure foundation business with some exceptional examples of contemporary roughage and choppage. Genetix twists up a fat riff and prods it from every corner on "Something's Brewing", Bristol OGs and label founders Substance & Dazee get serious busy with a shattering dubbed out roller while Jinx & The Force get deep, dark and dangerous with a purring, deep-breath bass that suddenly rises from nowhere in a techno-informed style. Need a little vocal pressure? Jump on Bassface Sascha and Phlex's "New Dawn" and trust us, you'll be feeling good...

As with the previous collection, the album will be a roadblock of stone cold jungle lash-outs and these are the first five tracks to tease us. "Erbman" is all about the warm bassline bounce and strange sci-fi flutters. Kenji goes in on a T>I style stripped back steppy vibe on "I Would" while K Jay gives us not one but two dope collaborations... The wobbled out "Kerplunk" with Verdikt and the rocked-out face-slapper "Rock With Me". Finally the label bosses Dazee and Substance's 1997 tear-up "LF Ant" gets a razor-sharp 21-year update from Genetix & Habitat. Ruffneck ting; heads of the herd for almost 25 years.

Review: The Force has been strong this year. Consistently delivering since the early 2000s, this year he's really pulled out all the stops. His second Ruffneck roughhouser of the year "Searching" comes hot on the heels of his Bulletproof, Serial Killaz, Iron First and Calypso Muzak dispatches has continues to damage the dance with wily riffs and raffish, unkempt bass funk. Highlights include the hair-raising harmonic bassline Q&A on the title track, the awesome distorted bass on "Plastic Dreams" that hits with a mid-2000s electrohouse cheekiness and the warm skanks and electrified bass sizzles on "Soldier Bass". Keep on searching...

Review: It's a first class trip from Manchester to Bristol on the Ruffneck roller express as Hocus Pocus heroes Dawn Raid deliver four on-point work-outs. "Four Shots" disarms with a jazzy swing and some on-point words from the big guy himself. "Captain Confusion" sees them pairing up with K Jah for some flute-fired dream-laced soul while fellow Manchester man Bou twists up a little darkness on the soulful surges of the Jinx collaboration "Strife". Finally "Grotti" brings the heat as a classic jungle happy ending; ghostly, spacious and just a touch of the Cycle to it, we told you this was first class.

Review: Ruffneck Ting has been a prominent name in jungle for the over 20 years, starting life as a night in Bristol in 1993 before morphing into a label in recent years. So it's fair to say these guys know good jungle and, if they put out an extra large EP, we should be listening. Standing out as one of the highlights is 'Buju' with it's slow, low sub. We're also feeling 'Bad Boys' which blends tight, rolling amens with weird sci-fi synths and shorts shots of dirty bass, perfect for the dance. The title track 'Untouchable' combines classic claps, and lasers, with more modern effects and a killer bouncing base.

Review: It's a Birmingham / Bristol Jah-off as long-established Ruffnecker K Jah adds a little twist to young Bristolian newcomer Mixjah. "Soul Survivors" sees the two Jahs go toe-to-toe with a beautifully simplistic bassline groove while on the remix-front "Send Some Riddim" enjoys a beautiful makeover with an elastic bassline stretching around some jazzed-out keys and "Purple Music" goes ultra-violet with its understated minimal bassline roll and cool showers of dusty organ. Comes complete with a killer original from K Jah where the perfect balance of agginess on "Crowds Just Go" guarantees instant mix gratification. Don't mess around.

Review: Jinx is ready to rumble. The big question is... Are you? You should be; there are six stone cold jungle slappers right here, each one rumble-optimised for your maximum skank pleasure. Highlights include the slight wonky and loose flabby feeling on the bass on "Ready To Rumble", the roomier, deeper stepper "Long Nights" and the star-gazing, purring sub-led dubby workout "Hold Tight". But that's literally the half of it. Dig deep and rumble yourselves silly.

Timeless unabashed party cuts tailored for deep-mix creativity.

Review: Make no mistakes: Ruffneck Ting are smashing it on a whole new level this year! Bombarding the game with beat after beat, barely a month has gone by with a Ruffneck roll-out session. The Xtraordinary League Of Junglists takes this proliferation to a whole new level with 20 killer cuts from some of the label's firmest friends and family. Every cut is a highlight but you'd be off your nut not to check the clinically obese classical mid-90s jump up bass of "War", the sprung-out Bingo bounces of "All 2 Myself", the piano-slapping feel good rave workout "All Through The Night" or the dubbed-out trickery of "Hazey Dub". Need we go on? Ruffneck Ting have been on this ting since dot and they're rolling out some of their finest right here. Essential.

K Jah & Vytol wind up the dispatch with a clunkier iron age riff and a dizzying array of basses. Xtraordinary indeed... Bring on volume two!

Review: He's back! After a brief secondment on Natty Dub, K Jah returns to his spiritual home Ruffneck Ting with a firing five pack of ageless jungle jump up skankage. "Got To Have It" deftly references a classic Hijack rap over a bounce-licked bass arrangement, "Born In NYC" kicks like a New Yorker but kisses like a Jamaican while "Get It On" and "Rugged Over Loops" are reminders of when jump-up was exciting and not full of high-pitched screeches. Finally "On A Mission" is a fantastic trip back to the late 90s Moving Fusion/Bad Company style of D&B with a bassline that rolls and rolls and rolls with funk.

Review: Longstanding ragga-enthused jungle mischief-maker Jinx supersizes the EP concept on Ruffneck Ting. Ranging from classic jungle rolls and amen-shattering magic of "Wicked" to mid-'90s "Chopper"-style roll-outs ("Stick Up") via dubbed out sub-drenched steppers a la Potential Badboy ("Sticks & Stems") and absolute skank savagery ("Rebelution"), he shows off the many gully feathers in his cap with style and consistency. This is such a massive body of work, in fact, that in most people's eyes it would be considered an album not an XL-sized EP. To put it simply, you'd be crazy not to investigate this.

Review: Birmingham bass by way of Bristol: Vytol continues to fine tune his sounds on Ruffneck Ting. His most comprehensive release to date, this EP represents the young artist's full spectrum prowess far more than his previous outings. Cuts such as "Back Into Time" take us back to the heady era of early Playaz/Full Cycle while "Kennington" takes us back to early Urban Takeover era when jump-up simply meant funky and space-aged and "Hold On" brings us back to reality with a D-Minds-style sense of mischief. Concentrated D&B that pays respect to the last 25 years; this is powerful.

Finally we hit the life-affirming rave tones of "Ruffneck Soundboy". A veritable label anthem, it sums up all parties with succinct sweetness.

Three originals from the duo include a menacing, belching, spaced-out jump up stepper "Red Planet", the alien combination of rolling beats and angular sheet metal bass on "Frostbite" and the sharper, starker, more paranoid "Nikel". Remix-wise Ruffneck Ting have brought in the big guns: both Jinx and Saxxon deliver superlative twists on "Pandorum" and "Red Planet"... And they do so while reminding us that having an x in your name is really cool. Bon voyage brave spacemen.

With a dubwise vibe rolling throughout, it's another ageless document: "Chalice Pipe" warns of naughty narcotic combos while horns pierce the darkness with balance and funk, "On The Corner" is all about the subs and snares that punctuate in a fashion similar to Digital or, more recently, Stealth. "Cornerstone" is a classic jump-up flavour a la DJ Stretch while "Money First" jitters with a strange sample, humming subs and an array of classic zap FX. The verdict? Guilty... Of pure gulliness.

Review: Brummie bass-whipper goes on a co-lab crusade for his latest Ruffneck Ting EP. "Get Busier" sets the tone with syrupy bass that oozes and stretches over his robust drum work. A triptych of tag-team jams ensues: Vytol takes K Jah to deeper corners of the dance with a stripped back stepper that's reminiscent of Break or perhaps S.P.Y's early material, Ruffneck Ting queen Dazee adds a little bounce with the Urban Takeover-style "Dig This" before Jinx joins the fray for the heaviest hitter of the collection: "We're Rolling" sums up K Jah, Jink and Ruffneck Ting's spirit with a ballsy, scuffy Moving Fusion-flavoured dynamic that wouldn't have gone amiss in 1998.

"Monster" rolls out hard, offering the most straightforward of the tunes, the perfect club uniting track. Finally "Habitat" seeks truth in De La Soul's "Rock Co.

For all those who bitterly complain about the lack of soul, imagination and rawness in modern day D&B, look no further than this four-track salvo that makes it feel like '96 all over again. Habitat keep things decidedly bouncy and not a little bit cheeky on "See Me Coming", while "Razor Blade" heads into more devoutly junglistic territory to deadly effect. The Force has a smoother blend on offer with the big leads of "City Love" bringing a little Detroit magic to the mix, while "Musical War" rubs a little rootsy skank into the crisp breakbeats.

Review: If you're a fan of reggae and rocksteady culture, you'll know that moonstomping was the dancefloor etiquette back in the day. The Force hasn't so much taken on board the heavy booted stomp of the '80s as run a mile with it in day-glo Nikes. Featuring the original sample from Symarip's classic, it's about time Doc Martens met dancefloors up and down the UK again. "Universe" takes on a full-pelt modern junglist tip rounding off the release with a heads-down skanking opportunity. Get your dancing boots on.

Review: Returning to Ruffneck Ting with another superb solo artist EP is the supremely talented workaholic wizard, Jinx. This selection aims to take us all on a sonic journey, "fully charged with planet shaking bass" according to the official words, so we can solemnly swear that it's up to no good. "Men Are From Mars" picks up and destroys instantly, rolling out hard and setting the standard for "Lost Time", which loses the cosmic sounds and gets elbow deep in some seriously soulful stepping material. "Energy" bounces back some vibes inthe place complete with warp-speed tempo, sirens and turbo-charged War Of The Worlds horns. Finally, "People" sets the phasers to "move that ass" as subs, smooth vocals and a marching beat work together in a conspiracy to get dancefloors shaking. You ready?
