Friend Within announces ‘Love Defined’, his first extended solo project and teases it with the release of ‘Jungoal’.
The Love Defined playlist, which includes his summer single ‘RGB’, is the culmination of 18 months spent in the studio, writing new music and also tweaking old tracks that, in the words of Friend Within, ‘span the house music spectrum as best I know’. He has ditched the standard album format and gone for a playlist instead with tracks added into it as time goes by, it is an ever-evolving body of work with a purpose to help define and provide a bigger understanding of him.
‘Jungoal’ is the first track to be revealed, a bubbling, synth heavy banger infused with traditional African vocal samples and percussion, slated for release on 26th January 2018 via his own imprint, ‘He Loves You’.
Speaking on the track, Friend Within says; “Jungoal was created during the time I spent deep in the jungles of Africa. I recorded real African sticks hitting real African drums and that you just can’t replicate in the studio. When I did return to the studio I realised I forgot to press record on my MP3 device so ended up using samples I found online and you really can’t tell the difference. It’s a fun tune.”
