You've trawled every last vintage and charity shop to bag that original Global Hypercolor T-Shirt, you've clicked a handful of links on Discogs to nab the whole Rage top fifty. Looks like you're all set for one of summer 2017's big sound revivals. While it's been no secret that those big, exhilarating Jungle sounds have been creeping back into new electronic releases via the work of Lone and Special Request for a few years now, it's hard to deny how prevalent they're starting to become again - albeit often very much bent out of shape for modern dance floors.
Recent bits and bobs by Shanti Celeste and DJ Sports have very much hit that spot, while this new release from Lisbon's, Violet, on her brand new Naive imprint, is a frankly stupidly good 4 tracker. It's brimming with washy synths and time-stretched break beats that you could happily imagine blasting out of a modern day open-air Zrce beach sound stack, as easily as on Fabio and Grooverider's dance floor back in the day at Heaven. The Bleid remix of 'Togetherness' as well a 'Silver Lining' (on a more chilled, Bukem tip) are the ones that chimed the most for me, but to be honest the whole EP is an absolute beast. Watch ya bass bins, I'm tellin' ya!
Violet - Togetherness EP is out on Naive on 15th September, available to pre-order HERE
