Flying in all they way from Scotland for exclusive B2B on her birthday For award-winning artist Mrs Magoo, though, the massiveness of jungle has never been in doubt. Whether influencers are telling her it's on trend or not, she's been flying the flag for that foundation style ever since she first appeared on the scene. And she's made quite an impression.

Growing up on the central belt of Scotland, Mrs Magoo's musical tastes were shaped by all kinds of genres, including hip hop, rock and – influenced by her dad's tape pack collection – happy hardcore. So, when she discovered the multi-cultural, old-made-new-again ethos of jungle, combined with the bass-weight and rave-hyping energy, it ticked all the boxes. So, as is her way, she threw herself into the music with unrestrained enthusiasm. Learning to deejay, then to produce, Mrs Magoo has already chalked up many major career milestones, but her passion for the music means she's never rested on past glories and taken her eye off what's next. She's toured internationally multiple times, she's scored prestige bookings like Glastonbury and Boomtown, and is always in the conversation when it comes to Best Female DJ or Best Jungle DJ (of any gender) awards. In a scene that's historically been dominated by men, Mrs Magoo has become an inspirational trailblazer for other young women to follow.

No wonder legends of the game are queuing up to co-sign her. She's had releases on elite contemporary jungle labels like Deep in the Jungle and Audio Addict, with many more to come. She's played for all the biggest jungle-focused promoters in the country as well as all the most prestigious DnB radio stations and streams. She's regularly rolled out back to back with pioneers like Kenny Ken and Nicky Blackmarket. And what's driven it all is pure unbridled love for the music and the ambition to be the best possible version of herself as an artist.

As she said in a 2019 interview with UKF, “I get so much joy out of mixing and finding those magic combinations. I don’t know why people wouldn’t practice? I have to practice. I want to know that I can bring something special to my gigs. I wouldn’t feel right not practicing and being my best!”

If you want to see a real dedicated junglist at work, someone motivated by pure passion for the music, and who can tear the roof off a dance at a moment's notice, get to know about Mrs Magoo.
Aries ( Born On Road ) you know jungle, then you’ll be all too familiar with Aries and the roads he’s travelled. Starting in the ‘90s with a desire to fly the flag for a growing culture he loved, Aries has since cemented his place as a much-loved pillar of the scene. From being a globally renowned DJ who has performed in over 35 countries, to sitting proudly at the helm of one drum and bass’ most exciting new wave D&B labels in Born On Road, this midlands-born artist has worked tirelessly to spread his dub-wise strain of jungle to audiences as far as USA and Australia. While jungle will always be the heartbeat behind Aries’ history, championing fresh sounds is the driver of his ambition. It’s the reason why you’ll regularly see Aries laying down eclectic drum and bass sets on the biggest stages alongside his Born On Road family. Through his label ventures, Aries has connected with a new generation of ravers – educating an appreciation for the culture and roots he cut his teeth in. On the road ahead, we’re only going to see this bond get stronger as Aries continues to build on the legacy he has created with plans to push his and Born On Road’s music output to new levels.
