J Lloyd, one half of the duo behind British group Jungle, shares his new mixtape Kosmos, produced and recorded over a 72-hour period in early April 2020.
The project is an exercise on a continuous, unfiltered flow of recording, where each track flows and develops naturally into the next idea. The mixtape was written and recorded in order, meaning the atmosphere and tempo of one track influences the next.
Kosmos takes the listener on the introspective sonic journey of producer J Lloyd whose production work to-date has mostly been focused on the production and writing of Jungle's two albums, creating the unique modern soul sounds of the band. His production work has also appeared on tracks by Nao and Aluna, whilst he was called upon to remix Lianne La Havas' 'Unstoppable'.
Jungle's self-titled debut album received critical acclaim which resulted in a Mercury nomination, and 2018's For Ever, was named an 'impressive and expansive second album' by NME and 'a brilliant second album' by Evening Standard. Mixmag praised the group for 'the feel good vibes we know and love'. Jungle has sold over 190k albums in the UK alone.
