Jungle Brown – Ric Flo, MAE­AR and Tony Bones have spent the last two years rede­fin­ing soul­ful hip-hop; the sound is big­ger, more thought-pro­vok­ing, and has matured with a rich soul­ful under­pin­ning. They have also entered ter­rit­or­ies fans are yet to hear from them as they glide effort­lessly over Tony Bones’ pro­duc­tions that intro­duce trap and house into their rep­er­toire. The pro­ject is an eclect­ic array of their influ­ences, twis­ted and blen­ded togeth­er to cre­ate a ground-break­ing release for UK music.

On the road Jungle Brown have shared the stage with the likes of De La SoulGhost­face Kil­lahLowkeyAkala and Don­aeo, and have played major fest­ivals includ­ing Gla­ston­buryBoomtown and Love­box as well as a huge num­ber of clubs shows across the UK. Their debut album ‘Flight 314’ boasts more than a mil­lion streams and spent much of 2016 in Apple Music’s ‘Best of 2016’ cat­egory, fea­tur­ing on vari­ous Spo­ti­fy playl­ists and visu­als on SB.TV. They were also reques­ted to cur­ate an exclus­ive playl­ist for Tid­al and attrac­ted atten­tion from New York with Beats 1’s very own, Ebro.

Their latest single ‘We On’ which fea­tures Sampa The Great util­ises a famil­i­ar sample from Kool & The Gang’s clas­sic ‘Sum­mer Mad­ness’, ‘We On’ encap­su­lates a late sum­mer vibe, as the pair­ing deliv­er a sun drenched, con­tem­por­ary boom bap clas­sic. ‘We On’ fol­lows the party jam single ‘Ikoja Ft. Elde’ which Mis­ta­jam described as “You def­in­itely need to make sure this is on your playl­ist — ridicu­lously sick, I love it” mak­ing it his #Jam­Hot track in August. Along­side pre­vi­ous single, the much loved ‘Keep It Mov­in’, which Loyle Carner described as “Keep It Mov­ing is my jam” on Twit­ter, Jungle Brown have cour­ted sup­por­ted from BBC 6’s Music Lauren Lav­erneBBC 1Xtra’s Mis­ta­jam, BBC Radio 1’s Benji B,  Kiss Fresh’s Shortee BlitzCom­plex UK, DummyClash and numer­ous Spo­ti­fy playl­ists.
