Jungle-The-Heat-EP

Jungle makes it so damn smooth you can spread this on a piece of bread and love it.

Funk? Soul? R&b? I am not good enough at genre’ing to say what this is, but I’m not sure many people could do better. This four song EP is definitely funky, but in a way that is hard to pin down. What matters more is that it’s totally immersive. I heard “Platoon” and was instantly plunged deep into their world.

This is the best aspect of the long tail of retro: sometimes it goes well beyond the sounds it emulates to become something unique in itself. Does this call back to classic dub, soul, and r&b? Absolutely, but in a way that sounds (to me at least) totally new.

Highly recommended.

They also make some of the best videos ever.
