Jungle (DJ Set)
Many people will already be aware of Jungle in their full band form: a central creative core of exceptional London-based producers, songwriters and frontmen J and T, who would expand to a thrilling seven piece band to perform live. Their one (eponymous) album to date was released in 2014 to huge acclaim – a mesmeric, future-facing, modern soul record that was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize while selling over 100,000 copies in the UK alone. At the same time, Jungle have built a parallel burgeoning career as exemplary DJs and impeccable curators. It’s a direction which has allowed J and T to explore a whole world of more club-focused sounds, showcasing a kaleidoscopic away of electronic influences while absorbing the wide eyed euphoria of the dancefloor. Initially building their name on the DJ scene by throwing a series of parties over the last two years with much respected London promoters Percolate, Jungle have since shared DJ line ups with a who’s who of contemporary club culture including Leon Vynehall, Ben UFO and Midland. Meanwhile, the duo have released mixes for Giles Peterson and Solid Steel, and helmed an influential Spotify ‘In Residence’ series to widespread acclaim.
Moxie is many things: a Londoner born and bred, raised on raving and records; a seasoned DJ, playing big-room clubs and sweatbox basements worldwide; a charming radio host, as at home on national FM as regional stations and independent start-ups. It’s this balancing act between the underground and the mainstream that’s seen her become one of the UK’s hottest DJs. Refusing to be pigeonholed into one particular sound, Moxie’s sets navigate the entire dance music spectrum from vintage disco cuts to the harder sounds of break-beat and techno.
