Jungle by Night has turned many dance floors into boiler rooms: from Istanbul to Tokyo and from Paris to the isle of Vlieland, nobody can withstand their afro beats, ethiobreaks, Turkish psych and spicy cumbia.
The band 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. A couple of years ago, the group seemed to be infected with a love for raw global oriented funk and retreated into the rehearsal studio. The band was invited to perform as the opening act at concerts of Mayer Hawthorne and The Roots & John Legend. The band collaborated with the likes of DJ/Producer The Gaslampkiller, drummer Tony Allen and Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 too name a few.
After four succesful releases Jungle by Night will drop their fourth album in November 2018. New album, new sounds. More than ever the band created a dancefloor orientated beatsdriven sound. They’ll bring all that good new stuff to So What’s Next?. Get ready!
