We Love Jungle presents: An interview with Nicky Blackmarket

What does Jungle mean to you?

It’s a way of life for me eat, sleep, drink. The whole thing!

Has your approach to DJing changed since you first started out?

Absolutely love it, the same as when I started out.

Where in the world do you think the best Jungle crowd is?

It’s got to be here, but there are pockets of wicked little scenes around the world. Canada and Germany have always been great.

What’s your top Jungle tune to play out at the moment?

Ah gosh. There’s too many.

What up-and-coming DJs and Producers are impressing you?

Voltage is one to definitely look out for, plus Bio Beats artists are coming through.

If DJing wasn’t your job, what would it be?

God knows. The job I had before working in a photographic lab doesn’t exist anymore as everything has gone digital haha.

Why do you think Jungle is still going strong?

Because it’s gone back underground whereas some scenes have broken through into the mainstream, we’ve gone back underground and survived.

Jungle was a musical answer to the social and political situation in 1991, do you think Jungle still represents our current state of affairs?

Without a doubt.

We all know you are a tea-fanatic and you drink cup after cup when you play. What is your favourite brand of tea?!

It’s got to be PG, or just any strong tea.

Any new projects coming up?

Currently in the middle of doing tracks with Voltage, and doing the 360 thing with Fatman D. Also, the Stevie Hyper D experience with Foxy and Fatman D.
