Bristol-based Hiphoppapotamus spent some of his time making new music during the lockdown and four tracks that were lovingly created during that period have made it onto his high-rollin’ Funky Junglist EP.
Consisting of four fresh Jungle remixes of some of his favourite tracks in the world ever, Hiphoppapotamus has made sure that every one of them is brimming with the kind of positivity we’re all on the look for currently. The first track of his favourite tracks to get an uplifting yet intense Jungle workout is Blind Melon‘s 1993 hit No Rain and following that is a raucous yet groove-heavy remix of Primal Scream‘s infamous classic Loaded that will have you dancing around your living rooms like no one is watching and guess what, they’re not!
Next up is the title track of the EP and this one features a raft of Reggae legends including Cutty Ranks, General Levy, Screechy Dan and Buju Banton and even though it has a slightly darker feel compared to the other tracks, there’s still plenty of fun to be had along with extra percussive elements thanks to Hiphoppapotamus’ good friends DJ Mook and Munki. Skankin’ out to Simon & Garfunkel‘s sing-a-long classic Mrs Robinson is how we’re rounding up this extremely lively EP and with all that has gone before, things could not end on a higher note and more enjoyable note.
You can buy the Funky Junglist EP on Hiphoppapotamus’ Bandcamp page for £5, but if you’re feeling the pinch with all that’s going on, you can download each one for free from his Soundcloud page (link below). 2 out of the 4 are available currently and the other 2 will be following shortly.
