Congo Natty feat. Phoebs

Dates
Day 4
Saturday 11 May 2024

The story began in the early 1990s, when Rebel MC (a.k.a. Congo Natty) left the UK rap group Double Trouble and started experimenting with sounds fusing reggae and hardcore breakbeat. The three singles that followed – “The Wickedest Sound”, “Comin' On Strong” and “Tribal Base” – laid the foundations of what would later become jungle.

A renowned producer who has had a profound influence on soundsystem culture, in 2022 Congo Natty published Ancestorz (Rootz Of Jungle), a 31-track jungle anthology made up of collaborations showcasing the voices of the world’s diasporas. In 2024, he will perform for the first time at Nuits Sonores alongside Phoebs a.k.a. Phoebe Hibbert.
