To do so would be to do them a huge disservice. The likes of Disclosure et al’s lineage can undoubtedly be traced back to the mid 1980s house scene,but Jungle turn the clock back still further.
Tracks such as Busy Earnin’ and Time hark back to the golden age of early 1980s electro funk, while the duo are also capable of slightly menacing electronica, in the shape of Lucky I Got What I want, and haunting love songs (Julia). A fine start.
