The discreet web release of three singles by the Jungle entity created some buzz. And despite its anonymous state, Jungle has being one of the most novel excitements of 2013: a kind of superb neo-funk, half way between revival and evident freshness. But earlier this year the truth was revealed: Jungle is the studio-duo of long-time friends Josh and Tom, two producers from London with a certain taste for hipshaking, happy sounds, and exotic lands, from Miami to the South-American jungles. Their first album is a potent preparation of pure party potion, the soundtrack to a perfect summer on the beach. And record label-giant XL Recordings (Adele, Radiohead, Vampire Weekend…) made no mistake about that. To top it off, live performances turn the band into a 7-piece collective jumping around stage like a bouncy orchestra. You want a safe bet? Jungle will be 2014 surprise hit.
