    Product Details


    In a whirlwind nine months, these youngsters have gone from their low-key debut gig last May, to supporting John Legend and The Roots, Mulatu Astatke, and Mayer Hawthorne. But perhaps the biggest highlight of the last year was playing with members of Fela Kuti's classic Egypt 80 band in the Parisien afrobeat mecca L'Alimentation Generale. Their performance prompted Fela's percussionist Chief Udoh Essiet to describe the boys "the revelation of afrobeat."

    All the tracks on this LP have been produced by the band themselves. In February they descended on a small village below Hoorn on the north-east coast of Holland. Deep in the bowels of Concordia, an old diary factory that now crushes peanuts to make oil, they settled into the private 'museum' of two collectors of vintage drum kits and hammond organs. It was the perfect space to record their unique mixture of afro-cuban percussion with a full rhythm section and three-piece brass for a killer instrumental soundtrack.

    The album reveals the many sides of Jungle By Night, from Barretto - inspired claps and clave fused with Abyssinian horns, to lazy 3/4 funkand Tijuana brass, to stretched-out modal afrobeat - all done in their own inimitable way. The fact that there's no single songwriter, and the group rehearse and write everything together is one of the keys to their success, as musical ideas are exposed to the laws of the jungle, with only the ?nest surviving.
