Fukuyama "Jungle (Futurewife Remix)"
- Words: Leo Maymind
As he puts it, Seattle DJ/producer Futurewife usually deals in "boogie 'n bass," and he's applied that same ethos to this remix of Norway producer Fukuyama's "Jungle" track. The original version—which dropped this week via Futurewife's own PYT label—possesses a few somewhat questionable instrumental choices, but the remixer has luckily cut everything inessential and underpinned the song's groove with the foundation of his own low, rolling bassline. He also uses Fukuyama's vocals as decoration rather than the main event, instead focusing on an intricate arrangement that combines reverbed piano licks, resonant synth stabs, and lush claps. It's all makes for a solid production, one which showcases Futurewife's attention to detail.
