Jungle Groove (GB)
"Putting a groove in your step." That's how Jungle describes himself as a DJ. Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy. Having grown up in mid-80's Los Angeles eclectic combination of funk music (George Clinton, Morris Day), Disco's forever classics (Donna Summer, Chic), synth-infused 80s music (Depeche Mode, Gary Numan)… all of which became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and R&B. Jungle ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful synth work, ethereal backdrops, brooding basslines, and soulful vocal hooks… all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling house beat. "For me, it's all about mood and a deep, hypnotic groove… playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it, regardless of genre, tempo, style."
