What the critics said:

"One of only twenty essential music books you need to take with you into the 21st century" Select
 
"Exceedingly well researched, endlessly authoritative and undeniably ace... State of Bass will be lapped up equally by scene aficionados and those with little or no knowledge of drum'n'bass." Carl Loben, MELODY MAKER

"Martin James comes up trumps with an in-depth examination of Jungle's roots, history and even a recommended listening guide." MUZIK

"Essential reading for anyone who is interested not only in the jungle scene... but in dance in general, in the music industry as a whole or even British society and it's infrastructures." DJ

"An acutely perceptive and thought provoking account of the circumstances and celebrities surrounding the development of a modern music that we can finally call our own." The Scotsman

"Good on the internecine rivalries within the overlapping scenes..." iD

"Cogent, well researched and hardly oblivious to the nutty charisma of jungle's lexicon and nomenclature." Select

"The best book on drum'n'bass". Sheryl Garrett in Adventures in Wonderland: A Decade of Club Culture

"State of Bass deserves a special mention. A thorough account of of the story of jungle." Ben Osborne in The A-Z of Club Culture
