5 Favourite Jungle Tunes

Funk-indebted acts characterized by lazing rhythms, falsetto vocals, and commercial aspirations were scarce in 2014, when Jungle capitalized upon their breakthrough single “Busy Earnin’” with a self-titled album that hit the U.K. Top Ten.

Led by childhood friends Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland, musicians originally identified as J and T, Jungle formed in early 2013 and wasted little time. Connected with the Chess Club label, they released their first singles – the hypnotic and relaxed dance grooves “Platoon” and “The Heat” — that July and October.

Jungle expanded to a seven-piece band for live performances, as Lloyd-Watson and McFarland did not want to simply play the music from their laptops in concert.
