State of Bass Book to be reissued

One for the jungle historians…next year will see the iconic State of Bass book revised and reissued for the first time since it’s original publication. Written by Melody Maker journalist Martin James and originally published in 1997, the revered tome covers the origins of jungle and D&B and explores the social, cultural and musical roots of the genre we all love so much.

The revised edition will bolster the original content with previously unpublished interviews with the likes of Fabio, Goldie and LTJ Bukem, plus coverage of Roni Size’s Mercury Prize win for New Forms. The book will be printed in April 2020 but pre-orders are live now over at the Velocity Press website.
