How to Be a Junglist: The T-shirt Special (Extended Remix)
When you belong to an awesome subculture, you need to be able to communicate your sophisticated taste to your tribe instantly. You also need to communicate it when you walk around in mainstream areas of society, just to underline how much cooler you are.
Let’s have a look at some printed t-shirt strategies applied by a large bunch of junglists and ravers through the years.
Chriszka wears her most favourite JUNGLE top. This is Roskilde, the most excellent sunny year of 2005 where Ohoi! was playing.
Chriszka wears her most favorite JUNGLE t-shirt again – and goes out to meet other t-shirts. We are at an Ohoi! party at Basement. Photo courtesy of jonask.
F.U.K.T. bass player Lars behind the decks, appropriately wearing a F.U.K.T. t-shirt. This is the Infiltrata party, DNBZone at Culture Box, in 2006.
Chriszka and Svingsen are wearing matching JUNGLE t-shirts to prepare ourselves for hard, sweaty work (we are about to move furniture).
I am getting ready to move flats, and Svingsen made these matching t-shirts for the occasion. ❤
Some people get a t-shirt to express their feelings for the music style they love. Other people just get the thing burnt onto their skin forever. This is Mariiii, expressing herself.
Chriszka travels back in time and makes a statement in China, 2004.
Stebbing wears a family t-shirt at Elektronisk Karneval 2010.
Wearing a RAW t-shirt at RAW 20089 – and an appropriate amount of stuff to drink.
Tim Driver and Garridge Bwoy each wear their own favourite extinct species on their t-shirts at Mariii’s garden party.
Chriszka travels back in time again while wearing her favorite jungle t-shirt (again) and making more (confusing) statements at The Forbidden City, 2004.
Rumpistol teaches the new generation about time travel wearing a t-shirt signaling cosmic friendliness, no matter where you land.
Are you constantly surrounded by needy fans? Frydenlund’s t-shirt could be your solution.
When your t-shirt is super aggressive, make sure to look super friendly in your face. Drop smiles to the world in Nadsat. Pic by Miss Popo.
Nis just wears himself on the t-shirt. This is probably 2002.
Not one single toss is given in this pic.
Another basic and to the point t-shirt. Nico DeFrost at the Infiltrata party, August 2006. Pic by Miss Popo.
Fuck art, let’s dance. Best photo ever taken of Filur. We’re at the 4WARDshow in Vega, 2004.
A BIG classic Junglist t-shirt sported by Vitus here. Take a look at the surroundings. This is how the basement in Culture Box looked way back (before improvements).
This t-shirt! Most awesome, worn bu Sulu. A deliberate provocation all wrapped up in glitter. Much like the man himself. This is RAW (and it says ARE YOU DUMB?).
Kristobal wearing a t-shirt from Dansk Sound Clash Mesterskab 2005, with junglistic lions and everything. Extremely cool party set-up and great sunset.
This t-shirt needs some attitude, Laura. We are on our way to the very hot DNBZone party with Infiltrata.
Is that a pixelated chainsaw on Soulmatic’s t-shirt?
Yes, it is! IT’S A PIXELATED CHAINSAW! Soulmatic playing live at Rum’n’Bass on a playful toy keyboard, June 2006. Pic by Vitus.
Yes, Chrois! This t-shirt speaketh the truth! (Great move, too). Culture Box, September 2007.
Tim Driver dries to grab the crowd’s attention at his own birthday party at Rust, June 2009.
Jeppe expresses his love for deep basslines while we’re warming up to the Caspa party, November 2009. These guys REALLY know how to play Taboo! 😀
Pyro wears a magic t-shirt!!! DNBZone, 2008, the EBK party.
Here’s a fine collection of junglists at Nadsat, enduring the blitz.
