Judge: @iammane

Good luck!

PS. Some tips on this one - if you’re looking for inspiration, check out mixes on Raggajungle.biz - bear in mind that in jungle, less is more. I want to hear these breaks mangled up, in many jungle tracks it’s literally just a bass and the amen break carrying the whole thing. Get wild.

Jungle is massive. Wicked, wicked :palm_tree:

Will definitely try to enter something for this! Is there going to be a unicorn challenge every month?

Unsure - just something I had rattling around in my head for a challenge :slight_smile:

Can I also use the project I’ll submit in an EP I’ll be making?

Also another question, do the think break and amen classic both have to be used in the project, and how much, because I only use the first kick and vocal sample of the think break

Use the project file above, but feel free to add whatever. You do not have to use the entirety of either break, but the focus of the drums should be around the amen and think break. It should play a prominent role :slight_smile:

Can I do this as well?

Not sure I follow, what you make here you want to use as the basis for a track for your own EP? If so yeah that’s totally cool

This is pure trash. Do not even give this a ranking.

edit: this does not even have a ragga jungle flavor.

Question: do I need to use both of the breaks in their original state? Or can I mix and match bits of them?
