La Jungle

Hyperenergetic noisetrancetechnopunk.

Six strings on a guitar, a casio keyboard, a loop station and a drumkit, that’s all these two guys from Mons/Bergen (in Belgium) need for their raging mixture of punk, trash, trance and techno. And a huge amount of energy of course, because as an audience you are not attending a concert of La Jungle, you experience it! That’s something that Jim and Reggie have clearly understood as they apply that famous 1 + 1 = 3 equation to their quirky music. Drummer Reggie beats the hell out his drum kit while Jim builds trance-like patterns and heavy walls of sound using his guitar, voice and loop station. Sometimes subtle, other times over the top, but always danceable like heavy techno.

La Jungle is liters of sweat, volumes of decibels and without any pretences. Here, rock goes back to its primitive and primal core. Let yourself be taken away by these two ginger headed monkeys to their natural habitat: La Jungle.

Live Dates

“By far the best new discovery to NME is La Jungle, a Belgian duo of party-starters whose disco- and funk- infused post-punk calls to mind everything from LCD Soundsystem, to Glass Animals via Battles. Hop-skipping about the stage, and dancing like they’ve got live wires up their backsides, they clamber and scream about the place like their lives depend on it.” – Tom Connick in NME, 20 Aug 2018
