Seductive, sun-soaked electro-soul surfaces with a breath of fresh air in new London outfit Jungle. Having released their debut double A-side single ‘Platoon’ on Chess Club Records in July, the faceless producer Jungle has been oozing from the radio ether with sultry perfection. With the fine tunings of early 80s synth pop, Jungle’s smooth electronic grooves are complimented by an irresistible downtown rhythm. The eerie intro of ‘Platoon’ is joined by an infectious beat, conjuring instrumental interludes and steely vocals delivering vengeful lyrics. Handclaps and whirring sirens are just some of the found sounds that ricochet off its unerring low-end foundations.
Whilst they have so far maintained anonymity, the video for ‘Platoon’ has not. With viral credentials reaching the 100,000 views mark, it features the award-winning breakdancing sensation B-Girl Terra, whose insane moves are enough to make your hair stand on end (oh, and she’s six). This video will get anyone going,
