Junglist Manifesto Recordings began as a way for Toronto Producer Chili Banks to release a large back catalogue of dubplates.
Chili Banks' passion lies in Producing and Djing Jungle. Chili's passion began with late 80's Hip-Hop when he fell in love with the art of sampling and beat making. In 1994 he was drawn into Toronto's emerging underground rave scene. As the years past, he has worked as a Promoter, DJ, & Artist.
In 1998 he began producing his own brand of Jungle/ Drum & Bass. Some still describe his style as "Old School". He believes in the sound that he grew up on, call it what you will "Old School" or "True School" to him it's simply JUNGLE. Heavily edited drum breaks and sub-basslines are a must. Finding interesting and dynamic samples is just par for the course.
The Label has grown from its original concept to include a ton of tracks from Toronto native Moh Pai.
Moh Pai is a Toronto native, currently living in the US. Moh has been a member of the DnB scene and its roots since 1993 (New Order Promoter). Moh Trained as a drummer, Moh began to develop a unique sound in the studio. For more then a decade, Moh has produced many tracks, released on promo, on plates, and on vinyl through Top Shotta Recordings.
All tracks are available through all the major online distributers, Amazon, Beatport, itunes, Audio Jelly, check store for links etc.
All tracks are also available for FREE through the site. There is also a donate button in the store section if you'd like to support:
Trench is the young blood of the Junglist Manifesto Recordings family. A Science Productions favorite also representing for G.M.E Trench comes with a hard hitting intelligent mixing style, and sees track selection as a lost art.
Trench has been toiling away in the studio and behind the scenes for J.M. as of late. His drive and ambition are second to none. It's no surprise his collab with Chili Banks will be the labels first vinyl release. The dubplate version of the tune is making the rounds tearing up dance floors. He has become a regular on Bassjunkees.com Taste Of Bass show. The man takes his influence from hard hitting Techno Drum & Bass which comes across in his hard hitting mixes & the gritty grimey sounds he uses in his tunes.
Look out for this man to be a driving force in building the Junglist Manifesto name.

Just wanted to thank everyone for the support. To date since we launched 3 months or so ago we've had over 200 GIGS!!!! of downloads from the site directly. Not including digital sales. So at 10-12 mb a track or 60 mb a mix well you do the math. So thanks again from all the artists on the label. I'm just getting settled here in the U.K. soon to come is some vinyl, working on the distro deal as we speak. As well we've got a new artist coming, and we're moving forward with nuff choppage. A Chili Banks E.P. as well as first solo album is coming out soon.
This year has already been great being featured on the CCDNB Podcast #10. The minimix is a bunch of the grittier rawer sounding choppage tunes of past and present, and I've received great feedback.
So big things to come, looking forward to another great year. Thanks again.
