Premiere: Krueger – Jungle Walk
Since he popped onto the scene some years ago, Chicago resident (and Philadelphia born) Krueger has been a fixture in the American club music world, pushing percussive sounds well before they became web cool. He’s also a member of the Silverback Recordings stable, the Belgium label that has become one of our favorite outlets anywhere over the past few years. Released this past Friday (7/24), Krueger’s Marbled EP is his second extender player on Silverback and his first release since taking a step back from the Krueger alias late last year, comprised of three original tracks and remixes from Victoria Kim and Taskforce. We’ve got “Jungle Walk” on deck for you today, an acid-driven track built around a twisted Bmore framework and a childlike invocation to “take you back to the deep, dark jungle.” It’s the weirdest song on the record and shows that Krueger is more than willing to merge traditional dance music tropes with more contemporary forms. Get the Marbled EP here and be sure to check out Krueger’s Tools Vol. 1 pack from earlier this year.
