Not much to say about these Jungle Tekno comps except that they're all extremely impressive. Alot of people are familiar with Drum'n'Bass but not many know the history behind it, and many aren't familiar with the early Jungle records that paved the way for Drum'n'Bass. This Jungle Tekno series, along with other Jumpin' & Pumpin' series, does a great job of culling the really important tracks from the earlier years of Jungle/DnB. It's hard to find any documentation online which might shed some light on the history of the Jumpin' & Pumpin' label, but they've consistently released some of the best electronic dance music in my lifetime. Just browsing through their discography, you'll see the broad range they cover from oldschool UK hardcore to FSOL/ambient stuff and then a number of solid compilations.
