Kinkina - Jungle Fever 1987

Champion Records CHAMP 12-35

In 1972 Chakachas released Jungle Fever, produced by Roland Kluger with vocals by Bill Ador. It saw some success and became a bit of a classic on the Rare Groove scene. In 1981 Kinkina had another go at it but it never took off until 1987 when PWL's Phil Harding & Pete Waterman got their hands on it. Despite the nausea associated with the name, they done a damn good job but the real surprise was the 'Skratch Fever' Mix.

To give the re-release a little limelight, Shem McCauley, aka DJ Streets-Ahead, was brought in to do some live scratching over the track. It works!

"In 1987, CJ Mackintosh was the DMC UK Champ and he battled DJ Streets Ahead on the Champion Records compilation Ultimate Trax. Streets Ahead made the difference. Streets Ahead liked Go Go and what he did with Trouble Funk still stands the test of time." DJ David RB
