(The Blessed Madonna Remix)
Jungle release the first remix of Keep Moving – a sun-kissed slice of 21st-century disco to blow away the lockdown blues.
If this life-affirming imaginary-dancefloor-filling slice of techno-disco doesn’t shake away the cobwebs from last night’s outdoor drinking in a smoke-filled beer “garden” then your ears must have been irreparably damaged by Covid.
Blending techno, electro, house and disco, it’s a radical remix by The Blessed Madonna of Jungle’s latest tune Keep Moving, which has already attracted well over two million YouTube views.
“This is one of my favorite remixes I’ve ever done,” says The Blessed Madonna of the irresistibe new version. “It was a real pleasure and honour to work with this incredible record and bring it into a new space.”
The track will appear on the production duo’s third album Loving In Stereon in August. The British production duo – Josh Lloyd and Tom McFarland – have spent the last year locked in a studio and promise an album filled with h huge sing-a-long hooks, enormous synths, and the pulse-raising rush of pushing the BPM through the ceiling.
Since forming a decade ago in Shepherds Bush, they’ve already performed on five different continents, headlining as far afield as Sydney and Moscow, while winning new fans at festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, earning a Mercury Prize nomination for their 2018 debut album and closing in on a billion streams.
Jungle share the ethos of Gorillaz or Avalanches, blending music, aesthetics and choreography in asingle artistic vision as producers, songwriters and musicians, but also directors, content creators and curators.
“When we write music there’s hope,” says J. “Maybe today we’ll create something that influences people and changes the way they feel. If you can make something that lifts people, that’s an amazing feeling.”
And so say all of us.
