Label and Artist Links:
Slow Nomaden – Jungle (3000 Grad Records)
Remixes by Mollono.Bass, Pophop
Slow Nomaden makes us dance to the sound of the jungle – actually the sound of two different kinds of jungle: The wilderness and big city. Synthetic grooves create the rhythm and feverish vibe of what flows through the urban canyons of the metropolis, while the organic pattern of melodies and samples gives rise to dreams from the depths of a tropical forest. The EP is just as diverse as a jungle, as well: Besides the originals, there's the drunken pirate attitude of Pop.Hop and the intricate boost of Mollono.Bass, both manifesting in some neat remixes.
Release date: November 10th 2017
