Tastemakers and DJs are the gatekeepers to the dancefloor. They are responsible for what makes a song a hit. Superstar DJs such as Tiesto, Steve Lawler and Paul Oakenfold have had their releases become chart topperby these music caretakers; once a hit is made the King of the Jungle must maintain his musical throne.
Jungle Funk Recordings has released their fourth mixed compilation in time for the WMC (Winter Music Conference). Its simply titled “Miami 2014”. It features seven new global up-and-coming DJs sure to make their musical mark on Canada’s fastest rising label.
Canadian label Jungle Funk Recordings presents the EDMS (electronic dance music scene) with a broad range of genres including house, techhouse and tribal house.
