Chris "Jungle" Polglase

Biography

One of the most prestigious live drummers in Drum 'n Bass Chris Polglase, also known as The Jungle Drummer. He is widely acknowledged as one of the best drummers in the U.K.

Polglase started out by teaching himself to drum the hip-hop and DNB tunes that he grew up on. When playing DNB, Polglase is normally found drumming up around 180 BPM with his arms almost being a blur.

In May of 2003, Polglase collaborated with producer Tony Coleman, also known as DJ London Elektricity, on his Billion Dollar Gravy LP record. Late one night during a recording session, they received a phone call to play live at BBC's Maida Vale Studios for Fabio and Grooverider and the London Elektricity live show was born. It was the first 100% live DNB show.

When not playing with London Elektricity, Polglase has fashioned his own live show w/ DJ L Double called The DJ vs. The Drummer. Polglase drums along while L Double spins DNB creating a unique live experience. Along with those two shows, Polglase was invited to tour Europe with hip-hop star Timbaland in the summer of 2004.
