Professor Green has said that his track 'Jungle' winning Best Dancefloor Filler at last night's (February 23) Shockwaves NME Awards shows the "changing times" of music.

He was speaking in a new NME video interview - watch it by clicking above.

The rapper said that the song "was the track I pushed forward to be released".

"We did a video that we knew wasn't gonna get on TV, we put a single out that we didn't think was gonna get on radio, and it was A-listed on Radio 1 over Christmas," he said. "To get that kind of support for that kind of record really shows the changing times."
