UK / XL / live

Soul, funk, disco and electronica shape the musical language of Jungle, the London collective that in 2014 gained the favour of critics and audiences alike with their self-titled debut album on XL Recordings.

The collective revolves around the core of longtime friends and musicians Tom McFarland and Josh Lloyd-Watson, but expands up to seven elements for their live performances, a concentrated of energetic beats, detailed groove sounds and hypnotic voices designed to connect and connect with people.

The founding duo began to produce music at the time they attended the same high school in London, yet they felt the need to extended Jungle’s range by collaborating with different artists across discplines. Their long-awaited debut album, introduced by “Busy Earnin” and “Time” singles, came out in 2014 via XL Recordings, the record label of artists such as SBTRKT, Thom Yorke and The xx. After conquering audiences across the world with their funk-pop debut, Jungle started building their own studio to work on new material.
