Of course, this is old news to Ming+FS, a New York City DJ and production duo that has been exploring such possibilities since 1996. Ming+FS's careening DJ sets are a nexus of jungle, hip-hop, electro, and turntablism, and their 1999 debut, Hell's Kitchen, chucked the boundaries of both genres out the window, creating a more dense, satisfying fusion than jump-up junglists Aphrodite and Mickey Finn ever could.
Judging by their newest effort, Subway Series, they seem to have lost confidence in the raw power of this fusion, letting hip-hop and electro take the spotlight while using jungle sparingly -- though it probably won't make a difference when they appear live on four turntables at the Grog Shop. Even though Ming+FS are by no means masters of DJing any one genre, they move from raga-tinged jungle steppers to Bambaataa-style electro with ease, working in a Juice Crew a cappella and some meaty scratching at the same time. If you ask us, that makes them masters in their own right, which is probably just the way they like it.
