Hangtight all the original Hardcore Tekno Junglists. The next phase from venues like Astoria , Island, Rex was to take Jungle Fever and Kool FM to places like Atomics , Maidstone. Iconic for Pure Science and HEAT... We had some legendary events as Jungle Fever meets Heat . Bagleys , Astoria , Heaven to name a few.
amazing memories of old friends and how the scene use to be... some things have changed for the better. Some not.Samples of classic rare grooves chopped and rearranged with some ripped 808s. People were really experimenting with their equipment. wiring things up ways they weren't designed to but sounded amazing. running the desks into the red. Walk down the road and you'd hear jungle at its finest blasting out of someone's car or shop.

A different Tuesday progress snap shot of fitness. • .
The “THEN”pre-technology workout shot... to the NOW techno fitness shot in 2018. 😜 Anyone else remember what it was like going for a run/hitting the gym pre the selfie/fit bit tracker life?
It's with great pride that I confess that the first Nokia I ever got to handle was the legendary Nokia 3310. Two of my siblings were gifted with identical ones by one of my relatives which in turn increased the opportunities of using the technological marvel.
Some of its features were quite mind-blowing at the time. The monophonic ringtones for example were quite something, especially since one could purchase or share more ringtones (sent as a text of musical notes) or compose one themselves using keypad combinations. Those who had acquired ringtones of the trending songs at the time would bask in their five seconds of fame whenever their phones would ring in public places and one or two heads would turn after recognising the ringtone.
Given how young I was at the time, I was obviously fascinated with the games contained in this phone. I played all four of them whenever I got the chance. My favourites were Snake II and Space Impact. The first time I finished all the levels of Space Impact was a mixture of so many emotions. I was thoroughly excited and proud of my accomplishment but also kinda worried and panicky coz the phone vibrated continuously for like three minutes straight so I didn't know if I'd spoilt it.
There are so many more memories tied to this phone which can't all be covered in one sitting. That being said, it's no surprise that the practicality and durability of this phone paved the way for my long relationship with Nokia as a phone brand. In comparison to current trends in phone ownership, the durability of Nokia phones from back then was somewhat frustrating, since with normal everyday use, it wasn't easy to get the phone damaged enough to justify buying a new one. It's as though loyalty had been incorporated in the design of the phone, to be a faithful companion for the next few years before making an honourable exit at the end of its design life (kinda like pets). Nowadays loyalty to phone brands is a myth, one's love for a phone depends on how soon it can get the latest software update, or how it compares to the newer phones being released every other day with more features at the same price.
