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.
Jungle by Night 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.,. The nine souls in Jungle by Night were acquainted through school, street and family bonds. 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.
There wasn’t a festival organizer unimpressed by Jungle by Night, so they were basically invited to all! Regardless if the festival was world music oriented , dance festivals or major rock-events such as Lowlands, Fuji Rock or Sziget or Jazz minded like North Sea Jazz or Montreal Jazz . Their fame stretched from The Netherlands to Japan, where Jungle by Night performed at Fuji Rock in 2014 and from Jazz a Vienne in France to Montreal Jazz in Canada and a hardticket show in the Brooklyn Rough Trade.
Jungle by Night does not set any musical boundaries, the possibilities are infinite. The band members have individual interest and tastes in music. One likes psychedelic rock, others listen to hip hop and all lot of jazz, yet others get their kicks from reggae, latin and rock. All influences dwell down to the musical palette of Jungle by Night. “It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you do it with passion and soul,” thus Jungle by Night.
