Speakerbox & Do Androids Dance Present: Jungle Trap

Here's a new remix EP that I've put together with my good friends DECiBEL and Spooky, in association with Mistajam's Speakerbox and Do Androids Dance.

The project originally came about when DECiBEL and I were joking about sub genres...somehow we got on to the subject of Jungle, and decided it'd be fun to update some of our favourite tunes with a Trap flavour. We made a few edits, then Spooky then appeared with his awesome Body Snatch remix. We all joined forces and the rest is history!

Here's the blurb:

"If you don’t know by now, Do Androids Dance is particularly fond of remixes. The art of the remix, where you’re putting your own spin on established material, when done correctly, is a magnificent thing. Damn-near life changing. One of the best types of remixes, obviously, is when you flip one particular style of music into another, especially when it’s a sound that lends itself to awesome interpretation.

DAD is also fond of the days of jungle… you know, the sound of drum & bass before it was drum & bass. So when we heard that DECiBEL, DJ Cable, and Spooky had been working on transporting jungle tracks into a trap state of mind? We’re all into it. Brillz already showed ushow well an amen can work in a trap track, but this is going much, much deeper. You’ve got certified classics from DJ SS, Shy FX, and Jo (among others) being thrown into the 808-heavy sound of now, effortlessly. If you’re of the crowd that remembers when these jungle cuts were the talk of the town and needed some familiar turn-up without all of the 'Damn son where'd you find this', then Jungle Trap is all yours, free of charge."
