TIME FOR JUNGLE BELLS ; the Acclaimed Funk Collective Are Bringing Their Dance-Inducing Show to the Warehouse Pary in Time for Christmas


OF all the curated nights at this season's Warehouse Project, the one pulled together by London funk collective Jungle featuring a pile of hot young things got us pretty excited.

Tom McFarland - one half of the camera shy creative duo who put Jungle together, alongside Josh Lloyd-Watson - couldn't be more delighted either. A regular at the club and in the city (his girlfriend studied here), he has huge respect for the reputation WHP has earned.

"It's been an opportunity to get a lot of our friends together and the people we admire," he says. "We've known Nao for a long time, and done mixes for Makeness, and La Priest has come up from nowhere this year.

"And it's a testament to the Warehouse Project and how much it has grown as an institution in Manchester that it attracts such huge, cool names.

"We've been in the studio writing new tracks, so it'll be strange to get our heads out of the 'never seeing daylight' mode! It'll be fun - our Jungle Christmas party."

Reactions to their self-imposed secrecy were mixed. Thirty years ago, an aloofness to media looked alluring, says Tom; these days, a lot of people don't think they've got a relationship with an artist unless they can see what sides they've had with their beefburger.

Tom can only agree: "When labels are making sure their artists have a Facebook post before they've even got their single released, it just feels like they're not focused on their musical output.

"When we were kids, wireless internet didn't exist, so you had to kick your mum and dad off the phone to get onto Limewire to download a song. Information on people was limited to what you read in NME or Rolling Stone, and that naturally created much more of an aura around artists that you loved. …
