Avian soundscaper Flamingo Jones has returned from the lagoon with a healthy new serving of Nature Beat, entitled "Lazers In The Jungle". The 4 track EP boasts all the humidity and tropical goodness of Jones' previous material, only, with a considerably more ernest approach to the island vibes. Lead singles "North (We'll Be Warmer Up There)" and "The Island Does Crazy Things" have both garnered acclaim on radio, the blogosphere, and beyond, praising the Flamingo for his unique production style and desire to tackle more heartfelt subject matters on this release. "Lazers In The Jungle" gets its official release on October 2nd, so dust off those GF day cobwebs and have a listen - it's like a free trip to the Bahamas!
"The genre that this Melbourne producer lists himself under is so good! It's called "Nature Beat" ... It's kind of like The Jungle Book but there's no python, no Shere Khan, just the fun, friendly animals!" - Declan Byrne (Triple J)
"‘North’ is another glimmering jungle jam from Jones, but has more of a thoughtful, ethereal vibe than much of his previous work" - Tone Deaf
"Chock full of traditional Afro-Cuban instruments and lavish atmospheric layers" - Red Bull Music
