A collection of heavyweight ragga-influenced hardcore jungle tracks from the early 1990s. Dark and heavy! Featuring classic and seminal tracks from the likes of Levictus and Krome &Time, alongside a host of rare and little-known ragga & junglist hardcore tunes from the likes of Babylon Timewarp's hypnotic Durban Poison, Rhythm for Reasons' mad 'The Smokers Rhythm', The Freaky rave-y breakbeat sound of 'Time and Age,' Trip One's super dark 'Snowball' and loads more! Expect super heavy basslines, equally heavy twisted Amen drum loops, even heavier ragga vocals! Original jungle style - roots and culture - from the earliest days of drum and bass. Included with the first edition of the Black Riot vinyl and CD is a very limited-edition free graphic mini-novel "Black Riot: The Mysterons save Planet Earth from the Xatheroid Angels." This is the third collaboration between writer Paulo Parisi and Soul Jazz Records. This new graphic story continues the story of black electronic dance music - this time set in London circa 1992 and continues onwards from Soul Jazz's earlier 'Invasion of the Killer Mysterons'
