Ever since quietly emerging with their first single "Platoon" in 2013, London-based outfit Jungle quickly became critical darlings and KEXP favorites with their innovative genre-blurring mixture of soul, funk, disco, R&B, and pop. Centered around the core founding duo of Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland, Jungle's 2014 self-titled debut album was nominated for the Mercury Prize, and their 2018 sophomore album For Ever further established their infectious, hopeful, and refreshing sound. Their fantastic third album Loving In Stereo just came out on August 13th through the group's own independent label Caiola Records.
For their exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World, Jungle flex their eclectic taste and sharp ears for cutting-edge contemporary sounds with a seamless journey that initially weaves through jazz and psychedelic terrain before storming through addictive house, disco, tech house, and underground electronic styles.
