Paris DJs followers should be aware of the heavy afro/latin/funk greatness of Jungle Fire by now. The Los Angeles-based band have released two fantastic 45s through Ohio-based Colemine Records, and a series of remixes available digitally, cooked up by KidGusto, Whiskey Barons, Renegades Of Jazz, and French reggae/ska remixer extraordinaire Grant Phabao. His explosive rework of Jungle Fire's first single's b-side 'Tokuta', released february 2013, was dubbed 'sheer genius, a skanking juggernaut' by the Craig Charles Soul & Funk Show on the BBC. Nuff' said.
The band's second seven inch, 'Firewalker', first released digitally in april 2013, is an irresistible raw Afro Disco number with a fuzzy bongo breakdown, such a killer track Paris DJs couldn't pass on licensing for their second afro/tropical compilation 'We Are The Fire Inside Your Mind'… and also have it remixed by Grant Phabao, once again, for a unique blend of Afro-Latin Disco Funk action and Jamaican Ska power, full of jumpin' skanks, dancin' breaks and funkin' horn licks. Listen, freak out, play it to the crowds, and watch them go nuts!!
'It's the finest piece of what this Los Angeles outfit has recorded so far. So rightfully remixed but what Parisian Grant Phabao is doing is simply genius.' - The Craig Charles Soul & Funk Show / BBC6, July 27th 2013
