Jungle ‘The Heat’ (Joy Orbison Remix)
Happy little vegemite JOY ORBISON is a London based producer who knows how to kill it. He’s a heavily acclaimed producer and has achieved such feats as touring the world and creating a sound that is very much his own.
Taking on JUNGLE’s ‘The Heat’, he’s relayed the funk and mashed it up inside one big electronic ball of tentative sounds and confident directions. Spearheaded by an intense bout of rhythmic precision and a certain degree of attentive dismissal, he plays on aspects of dance music that tend to be overlooked.
The importance of an individualised beat that relays a sense of wholesomeness is put on display, and it really helps in giving the track’s sound a kind of “definition”.
The resounding glissando of synths introduced with the vocals makes this track something else. Something really unheard and almost kind of foreign. JOY ORBISON has really put a unique spin on this already silky smooth track, and shape shifted it into this complex whirlwind of carefully arranged sounds and sequences.
