Ragga jungle is the name given to a substyle of jungle music that emerged circa 1990 - 1991, with artists such as the Ragga Twins, Rebel MC and Genaside II, and has heavy influences from ragga, roots reggae and dancehall.
This style is credited with engaging the black community within the jungle scene, and contributed to the 'bad boy' or 'rude boy' subculture within the UK. Ragga jungle's popularity has waned significantly since 1995 in the UK, in part because the more popular DJs have avoided giving the sound airtime.
Ragga jungle is now a niche sound in the UK, with a small number of labels releasing music that can be categorised in this manner.
