Jungle By Night – The Hunt [KS045LP]

Jungle by Night drop a brand new album, ‘The Hunt’. Jungle by Night consists of nine young lads from Amsterdam who use their musical upbringing, taste, backgrounds and unstoppable eagerness to produce a unique blend of musical styles… The nine souls in Jungle by Night were acquainted through school, street and family bonds. A couple of years ago, the group seemed to be infected with a love for raw Africa oriented funk and retreated into the rehearsal studio. Jungle by Night does not set any musical boundaries, the possibilities are infinite. The band members have individual interest and tastes in music. One likes psychedelic rock, others listen to hip hop and all lot of jazz, yet others get their kicks from reggae, latin and rock. All influences dwell down to the musical palette of Jungle by Night. “It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you do it with passion and soul,” thus Jungle by Night.
Jungle by Night is: Pieter van Exter – tenor sax, Ko Zandvliet – trombone, Bo Floor – trompet, Jac van Exter – guitar, Pyke Pasman – keyboards, Peter Peskens – bass, Sonny Groeneveld – drums, Tienson Smeets – Djembe, Gino Groeneveld –congas

Turquoise Summers – Shades [BT1011]

Turquoise Summers returns with a new slab of So Cal Fonk for the Omega Supreme label. A Touch Of Turquoise , last year’s debut LP from Summers, was a superb induction into the world of twilight funk the musician inhabits and there’s plenty more speakerboxx vibes on display with this six track Shades EP. From the very moment the stripped back snap and heavy synth funk of opening cut “The Way You Make Me Feel” veers into focus, the man like Turquoise is on top form, sailing through tempos and moods – think introspective and party starting with “Divinity(Crystalized)” a true highlight. A must for those that live for the funk.
