It all started when 2 newly acquainted friends iamjungle and Rikines discovered they had a very similar taste in music. After going through each others records collection they realised they were both massively into the american ragga jungle label N2O Records. Mixing sessions immediately ensued and the idea of creating a collective to represent this sound alongside influences including jungle, drum and bass, hip hop, punk, metal and techno quickly followed. The idea behind the name was for something to represent this mixture of sounds and rawness of the bass it creates.
Northern Scum are currently residents for Jungle Jam which is an event in Leeds (UK) co-promoted by iamjungle. You can catch them representing at Outlook (Croatia) this year on the Jungle Jam boat party and soundclash stage.
