Jungle – The Heat

September 20, 2013

Maybe it’s just me, but I have waiting for something like “The Heat” for quite some time now.

The genre of “Electric Soul” just feels so empty compared of others. TV On The Radio’s Dear Science had hints of old school, but definitely could not be placed in the mow town category. Jungle reminds me of Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing as if “The Heat” they are speaking of is the literal heat that was overwhelming those Brooklyn streets. This track has a certain confidence, a “coolness” that I haven’t heard in a long time. Other tracks such as “Drops” and “Platoon // Drugs” show that these guys are not just a one hit wonder. But what remains clear and what is most interesting is that Jungle might have just created one of the best tracks of the year, seemingly effortless.
