Mystic Jungle – Jurakan
Neapolitan electronic and funk heads Periodica Records present new, lush material from label boss Dario di Pace's solo Mystic Jungle project. Whoosh! Four tracks of seriously sleek low-tempo electronic Italo disco. "Jurakan" is a stripped-back pop-style instrumental rich in motivational drive; "Metatemplum" a slinkier, synth-bass driven stroller; "Tropics of Capricorn" really lifts the roof off with its velveteen chug, space-ship synth lines and bouncy percussion; and finally "Parisienne" omits equal parts sophistication and smut, a cosmic-hole churner in the lower tempo realms - saunter or grind, it's up to you.
