The Jig – Proximo Disco (CD)


Seven piece funk machine The Jig releases its third album Proximo Disco in june 2016. Like the previous ones, Proximo Disco is packed with heavy funk with a rock ’n’ roll attitude combined with soul, afro, jazz and more. On Proximo Disco The Jig sounds more diverse and catchier than ever, thanks to a.o. cutting edge guitar sounds, hysterical Moog vibes and cunning collective songwriting. Denying the bands principles, The Jig works for the first time with a vocalist on this album: ruthless Mr. Ruben Seyferth, who sounds like a collision between Prince and Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), can be heard on three tracks. The album is mastered by sonic hero Darius van Helfteren, the eye catching artwork is by renowned British illustrator Ben Newman.
