SUNDOWNERS Feat MYSTIC BILL - Jungle Line - Classic
Eats Everything and Dungeon Meat re-work a Classic Music Company gem in ‘Jungle Line’ from Sundowners featuring Mystic Bill. Carl Giammarese and Mystic Bill originally wrote ‘Jungle Line’ back in 1995.
Giammarese is best known as the lead guitarist and vocalist for The Buckingham’s while Bill grew up in Chicago’s club scene to become one of it’s fundamental figures with releases on labels such as Trax, Relief, Club House and Rong Music. The original played a prominent part in Classic head honcho Luke Solomon’s sets throughout his early years playing alongside Kenny Hawkes on their Girls FM radio show and at their infamous midweeker Space at London’s Bar Rhumba. When Luke got in touch with Bill to include the track on his forthcoming compilation ‘Unfinished Business’ they decided instead that it was the ideal time for a complete re-issue alongside a couple of heavy hitting remixes. Dungeon Meat is the moniker of Parisian Brawther & Leeds lad Tristan Da Cuhna who between them stack together an impressive back catalogue of work with releases on labels such as My Love is Underground, Balance, Secretsundaze, 20:20 Vision, One Records and Gomma Dance Tracks. Blurring the lines between old school and new the guys deliver a punchy low down house cut with broken rhythms and shuffling percussion. The powerhouse that is Dan Pearce aka Eats Everything jumped at the chance to remix ‘Jungle Line’ and doesn’t disappoint in dropping a weighty re-imagining. Dan rolls with the reiterative spoken words of “J-J-J-Jungle Line” from the 90s original, gradually building towards a mighty breakdown into scattered snares and a warm whacked out rhythm that begs to be moved to. The final offering from the EP is the initial track itself – a rowdy arrangement of percussive clamours and muttered intonations all laced around that spoken vocal to create a thunderous original.
