This style is credited with engaging the black community within the jungle scene, and contributed to the 'bad boy' or 'rude boy' subculture within the UK. Ragga jungle's popularity has waned significantly since 1995 in the UK, in part because the more popular DJs have avoided giving the sound airtime. Ragga jungle is now a niche sound, with a small number of labels releasing music that can be categorised in this manner.


Recently, (2001-present) Canadian and American producers have been gaining popularity with their updated version of the sub-genre largely through online networks, sparking an international renaissance. Prominent produers of this new-school sound are continuing to build bridges; often revoicing classic reggae singers to produce new works for exclusive use ( as "dubplates") and retail sale as 12" vinyl singles and downloadable mp3's.
