With their recent debut album on XL Recordings receiving much acclaim, Jungle are getting the remix treatment here from Joy Orbison, adding an extra club bite to their crossover pop sound. Orbison opts for a slow and sinewy revision that works around a distinctive arpeggiated chord and sizzling drums, keeping the TV On The Radio-esque vocals in the mix and working in some illustrious synth sweeps for added drama. It's a finely balanced affair that manages to pack a punch while staying tender and patient at the same time, suggesting prime warm-up fodder for those craving a 4/4 heater laden with an authentic kind of soul.
The Dewale brothers first proper studio album in 12 years, From Deewee has been one of the most anticipated and warmly welcomed albums of the year. Unless you've been asleep or on another planet since March you've probably already streamed or download it... But nothing beats the vinyl treatment as it brings the one-take, non-stop recorded session concept to life with weight and a rich sound their analogue machines were invented for. Featuring drums from both Sepultura's Igor Cavalera and Turbowolf's Blake Davies and some of their most timeless, hooky fusions, this is a remarkable return from one of electronic music's most influential acts.
