Jungle are renowned for exquisitely curated remixes of their music. Their debut album spawned a string of top drawer remixes from the likes of Soulwax, Special Request, Zomby and Joe Goddard that transported their productions from their Shepherds Bush studio setup to dancefloors around the world.
Today, they reveal the first mix from their second album For Ever, ‘Beat 54 (Krystal Klear 12” Mix)’ sees sophisticated studio scientist and DJ Krystal Klear, arguably having the biggest year of his career on the back of his huge crossover anthem ‘Neutron Dance’, step up to rework ‘Beat 54 (All Good Now)’.
Krystal Klear’s M.O. has been pretty straightforward from day one: dance music that makes people actually dance. And this version – with one foot in the disco camp, the other in the house and techno world and, in Krystal Klear’s own words, “made with memories from New York in the perspective” – perfectly delivers.
‘Beat 54’ is taken from Jungle’s latest album For Ever, released in September. It’s a perfect distillation of Jungle’s sound – the kind of escapist, anthemic, mercurial funk that made us all fall in love with Jungle the first time round but this time more expansive, sophisticated and cinematic than ever before.
