Jungle Raiders is an international artist and producer collective that was formed in 2001. It was created as a platform to unite artists and play at venues to spread the jungle vibe that had it’s peak in mid 90s.
The first appearances of the collective took place in central Switzerland. It was the OPEN house2 event a legendary party that was launched at the culture and congress center in Lucerne that is famous for it’s architect Jean NOUVELLE.
This event was followed up by „DAS BOOT“ an event that can be described taking place on a passenger cruise boat aboard the lake of Lucerne. An event with Jungle Drum and Bass music under the moonlight on a clear night in that summer 2001.
The JungleRaiders were resident DJ’s at the oldest venue (1981) in the city of Lucerne. For two years they spun records and entertained crowds in the oldest location (1981) in the city of Lucerne, a former women's prison, called Sedel "THE CLUB".
They regularly organized events at the famous BOA HALLE, an official Cultural Center alternative run by the state of Lucerne.

They were invited to the local youth radio station in the heart of town called Radio3FACH. The mission was to share that Jungle vibe with the new generation that was not aware of this genre at the time. This collaboration began with a series of events under a label that was called „BROKEN BEATS“ where JungleRaiders artists where part of the residential rooster.
The JungleRaiders collective played alongside many artists during their musical journey from it’s foundation. Such as Remarc (UK), Wacko (UK), Rips (UK), Storm (UK), Nicky Blackmarket (UK), Paradox (UK), Rascal & Clone (UK), Utah Jazz (UK), Artificial Intelligence (UK), Klute (UK), Dom & Roland (UK), Emma G (NZ), LionDub (USA), Mainframe (USA), Anvil (USA), Bodie (USA), Canoe (USA), ExGirl (USA ) MurderBot (USA) RCola (CN), Dare Devil (I), Mr. FreeX (I), MC's Topcat (UK), Tenor Fly (UK), DemolitonMan (UK), Illmatika (UK), Joker (UK), Bad Weed (FRA) Serial Killaz (UK) just to name a few....
All artist / participants linked to the platform that perfomed at these events were granted musical and creative freedom which meant that boarders between genres were opened to give the crowd vast horizons and feelings that were experienced way beyond the sound it’self. It was an international language for anyone who was willing to speak up.
In 2005 their first vinyl record JRAID001 was launched at avenue El Paso Club in London and ever since they have been invited over to play their tunes at yet another legendary Club called HERBAL in London. This is the scenes Mekka for Jungle / Drum 'n' bass and HipHop music.
While being in the u.k they always got the chance to air their skills on the Radio Network DrumandbassWorldWide.com.
Currently they are dedicated to producing music and setting up collaborations with national and international artists such as King Jigsy (JAM), Anthony B (JAM), Echo Minott (JAM), Super TC Izlam (USA), Prince Tafari (USA), Rude Boy (USA) Demolition Man (UK), Illmatika (UK), I Razor (AT), Mr. Sutra (E), Fetitxe 13 (E) .. Teaming up with all these different vocalists and producers gave way to their unique melodies and styles of dubplates and bootlegs that are currently being produced and mastered at the studio.
The Jungle Raiders have kept people sweating themselves dry as they tore up dance floors throughout all of Switzerland and then further to Germany, Poland, Austria, England.
In summer 2011 they set foot in Spain and after that intermission the mini-tour JungleRaiders X in Valencia (Club Killing Time), Barcelona - OFF SONAR (Club BE GOOD), Alicante (Café/Bar Pixies) took place.
In autumn they were called forth to host two nights at the annual hispanic meeting of the Jungle / Drum ’n’ Bass / Breakbeat scene that goes by the name of Mountainbass Festival in the spanish Pyrenees. With great sucess and a lot of love for their music they left with undescribable impressions of the spanish scene.
