By merging classic 70s funk and soul with a contemporary groove, Jungle made a massive impression when they first burst onto the scene back in 2013.

With deep basslines, infectious melodies and seriously dance-able rhythms the London duo were seriously hot property and their first London performance in December 2013 reportedly sold out within 24 hours of going on sale. Along with the likes of Banks, Sampha, Chance the Rapper, and winner Sam Smith, Jungle were selected for the long list of the BBC Sound of 2014 poll and haven't looked back since.

Their self titled 2014 debut featured massive tunes such as 'Busy Earnin', 'Julia' and 'The Heat' which were brought to life with the aid a seven-piece band for live performances, as group's founders did not want to simply play the music from their laptops in concert.

Jungle are now back, and fans will be begging for new music - and they have a Manchester date penned into the diary for Thursday 10th May at O2 Ritz. You can find Jungle Manchester tickets below from 9am on Monday 12th February.
